Will ultra violet light cut it for sterilization?

I think UV leds are a cheaper alternative to a hepa air filter. Also, my Tc unit will compose of two glued together Tupperware containers, a UV filter system, I'm not sure how the glove contraption will work to let me interact with it, basic cleaning chemicals ( bleach, alcohol and peroxide ), Tc vessels, and some sort of mechanism that will allow me to add or take out item ( still working on )


Any recommendations would be extremely helpful
as this is my first Tc unit, also on a budget.

Exposure to UV light can be very dangerous, so I would strongly advise you to NOT keep any UV light on while you or any other living creature is in the same room. It can cause serious eye damage.

Not to mention cancer.
Blessed are the "cracked" ... for it is they who let in the light.
