Preventing Mould Is Just As Important As Keeping Dust Down

Written by Alex under General, Humidifiers | No Comments ""

It’s not only in spring that you’ll suffer from dust, pollen and other allergic reactions. A great deal of dust can get behind the radiators in the warmer months and when the central heating comes on all those allergens come flowing out, up into the lovely warm air currents and swimming about your house. Not […]

Written by Duncan under General, Humidifiers | No Comments ""

Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Body book (or “The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex and Becoming Superhuman” to give it its full title) is something of an international bestselling sensation.  He even has videos telling you how to peel eggs without peeling eggs and apparently gained 34 pounds of muscle in […]

A Humidifier Means Beauty Is More Than Skin Deep

Written by Duncan under Heaters, Humidifiers | No Comments ""

Most weather men are suggesting that last year was one of the coldest so far.  Temperatures are still pretty low, but add a wind chill factor to that and the results on your skin can be very damaging.    Even just a short trip outdoors can make your skin suffer.   When the cold winds start whipping […]

The UK experienced one of the coldest periods of winter weather in living memory in December last year.   While this was a shock to us Brits who usually enjoy comparatively mild winters, we managed well enough with heaters and humidifiers at our disposal.  However, even that shivering memory pales into insignificance when compared to the […]

Written by Duncan under General, Humidifiers | 1 Comment ""

Part of the thrill of becoming a parent for the first time is the preparation of the baby’s room.  That’s when new dads, no matter how ham fisted, are expected to master gloss and emulsion painting  and the art of wallpapering by trying to match up patterns of cartoon characters without consuming  half the roll […]

Horticulture or Humidifiers?

Written by Duncan under Air Purifiers, General, Humidifiers | 1 Comment ""

We don’t all have green fingers.  Whatever the opposite of that is, many of us have it in spades! Our allotment is barren, our house plants wither and die no matter what we do.  Which is a shame really, since indoor plants act as a natural air purifier, filtering the toxins and pollutants including carbon […]

If you’re in a band or an orchestra and have musical instruments in the house, you’ll be aware of how quickly they can “spontaneously” go out of tune.   That’s especially the case if you live or perform in a very dry or arid environment.   There are humidifiers specially made for instrument cases and some humidifiers […]

Air Purifiers for Cigar Smoking Celebs

Written by Alex under Air Purifiers, General, Humidifiers | 1 Comment ""

The Cigar.  It’s the staple export of Cuba, the image associated with the “fat cat banker” and the traditional gift for new fathers.  Smoking is bad for you, so stop OK!  Cigars especially, no matter how much you may enjoy them, do leave a stink.  However, if like Mark Twain (nee Samuel Clemens) you do […]

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifiers, General, Humidifiers | No Comments ""

The ability to control electricity with your mind may seem the stuff of science fiction, but Debbie Wolf, who hails from Telscombe Cliffs, near Brighton, says she is one of Britain’s growing number of “SLIders” – people who believe their presence interferes with household appliances, radios and light bulbs.

Review of 7144 Warm/Cool Mist Humidifier by R. Mizaraite

Written by Duncan under Humidifier Reviews | No Comments ""

Have purchased this humidifier after a long research over the internet. It is bit expensive, but I would say it’s perfect. Works so long without needing to refill, switched on and off automatically. Heats the mist, though you can’t really tell the difference between heated and not heated. My 1.5 year old son as able […]

Anyone who skis will recognise this – loads of fun during the day; loads of fun après ski; chalet bedroom too dry in the evening. The result is a stuffy nose, drinking lots of water to stop your mouth drying out (I suppose that could be the alcohol, too), and dry skin.  Not any more…I […]

Dry air has significant effects on people and processes. It affects people’s comfort and health and, consequently, their performance at work.  In the UK, low relative humidity in the workplace occurs primarily in the winter and, with increasingly high summer temperatures, is becoming more significant in warmer months, too.  The optimum level of RH for […]
