Most people know that houses, like children, need constant supervision and help. Also like a child, if a house is left to its own devices, it will absolutely refuse to bathe, leave its rooms filled with half-chewed Doritos and bits of pizza crust, and leave its sneeze-inducing dust-bunnies to multiply into an army. Take your house in hand and pay R1449 for an anti-allergy UV vacuum cleaner.
While any old vacuum cleaner could keep your carpets relatively scuzz-free and free of that pet hair that seems to cling to everything you own, even if you don’t have a pet, there are very few things – short of a small fire or a session with bleach and bucket of soapy water – that could get your furnishings totally cleaner. Using a head full of know-how and some technology that wouldn’t feel out of place on a space-ship, the Raycop anti-allergy vacuum cleaners were created to solve that problem.
Unlike your regular steeds of suction that just suck up your garden-variety bits of fluff and dirt, the revolutionary UV cleaners protect your family from dust, dust-mites and the dust on the dust-bites – essentially picking up all of the microscopic creepy-crawlies that live in your furnishings and carpets and protecting you from bacteria. Seeing as bacteria feed on dust-mites, and bacteria can cause respiratory infections, severe allergic reactions and all sorts of other serious health problems, the UV vacuum cleaner is almost like a flu-shot – preventing the issues rather than just cleaning up after them.
Today’s Groupon gives you the choice of two models, both of which are non-toxic ninjas when it comes to eradicating dust, dirt and other undesirables – added bonus points are awarded because both are also eco-friendly and use no harmful chemicals.
The SMART (BK Series) cleaner is the most popular, and also the original. Convenient, compact and light-weight, it’s the vacuum of choice for more families than you could count on forty-thousand hands. The HERA (AP Series) adds ergonomic flair. Both 350 watt cleaners feature a six watt UV-C germicidal lamp to kill 99.9% of germs, a vibrating pad to knock dust-mites out of their hidey-holes and micro-allergy filtration to safely assist in their removal.Lemon-scented Fact: In ancient Rome, people would use whole lemons to scrub their homes. Entire orchards were devoted to lemon-trees used for cleaning products. Unlike regular modern lemon cleaning products, the romans would simply strap a whole lemon to each hand and hit their furnishings until they were ‘clean’.
