My son and I both really struggle with allergies, and ever since we moved home a couple of years ago, our allergies have got so much worse, so I rely heavily on the aid of air purifiers and I currently have four – not even kidding. I have a lovely big one for my living room (the Homedics True HEPA Tower – I’ve had it for years and it’s still going strong), one for each bedroom and a spare for backup. I always make sure the very best one goes in Teddy’s room, and that is currently the Homedics TotalClean Desktop Air Purifier.
The Homedics TotalClean Desktop Air Purifier is a fantastic, space-saving purifier that’s surprisingly powerful for a desktop device. It has three speeds, an optional Ioniser, a timer and most importantly, a HEPA filter, which is absolutely essential for purifying the air of airborne allergies such as pollen and pet dander. The various filters also work together to remove odour and the idea of the Air Purifier is to suck all of the nastiness out of the air – I had a candle going a couple of days after I started using this particular Purifier, and I was shocked by how it drew all the candle soot out of the air, so there was a layer of black soot on the purifier the next day, it was a real eye-opener in regards to candle use, but it certainly proved the power of the device!
Another thing I really like about the Homedics TotalClean Desktop Air Purifier, other than the size and power, is the oil tray, which is such a small element of the product – almost like an afterthought – but it’s so handy for Teddy’s room when he gets colds and congestion, as I apply a few drops of a decongestant oil to the supplied pad (you get three) and then leave the purifier running all night and it really does help. Speaking of nighttime use, there is the option to turn the light off so it doesn’t disturb your sleep, but unless you need the room to be pitch black, I don’t think the light is especially intrusive.
Clean air is so important for a healthy home environment – apparently home air is often much more pollutant-filled than outdoor air, although this probably doesn’t apply to a Londoner like me! – and one of the easiest ways to achieve healthy indoor air is by using a good quality air purifier. Homedics are really reliable with their purifiers and they have so many different sizes, so definitely check out the full range here – link.
