UV Sterilization

thought that the UV radiation would help with disinfection, but it is not exactly so.

It IS done but with UV-C radiation. Not skin safe, but that is no consequence for our purposes, since it is of reason that one would use a chamber specifically made for, and having LEDs all around the inside.
UV-C LEDs are hard and expensive to come by, though there are non-LED lamps for 100 and 220V.

Put simply those UV black light strips, they do not work!
