The peroxide content is 1.4%, still very effective and well within safe thresholds set by the CDC for safe use.

Dyson HEPA Vacuum CLeaner

First, we love our Dyson vacuum. We were told to think of it as an investment years ago, and it has been. Second: HEPA stands for “High-Efficiency Particulate Air”, which means a different type of filter that sucks up more things and cleans deeper. A HEPA cleaner is an important part of any process you use, whether you are fighting diseases or other allergens. If you need a vacuum that really is about getting clean, go HEPA. When we recommend vacuums, we recommend Dysons.

Vapamore MR-50 Wet-Dry Steam Cleaner

Way2Cool Plug In Bug Zapper

This is the Yin to the Yin and Yang of bug elimination. It is basically a device that ATTRACTS bugs as a way to kill them. So…. we think of this as best used inside for a limited amount of time when we want to clear a room. Use it too much, and it attracts more bugs! It is great for tropical hotel rooms, or to deal with bugs that can’t be found at 2am in the morning. Not great in front of an open door, where it might cause a stampede of bugs from outside.

Click for Price & Availability
Kapas Mosquito Killer

The thing to know about many mosquitos is that they can live a long time indoors, under dining tables and in shower drains. So, if you think you have a few stuck inside, you’ll need to clear the room. This is an old-school bug zapper, ATTRACTING bugs using a blue UV light and then zapping them. With any device that attracts bugs, you have to think through where and when use it. The point isn’t to make a problem worse, by placing it somewhere that is completely open to nature, lighting a big neon sign that says “Come Hither”. Best to use this when the doors are shut and you know more bugs aren’t coming in.

03 Pure Pro Ozone Washer

Ozone washing is the method used to get hospital garments and other laundry truly clean and disinfected, pushing ozone into the water instead of using soap. While few houses have the space or capacity to install professional ozone washing systems, consumer systems are available. These consumer systems are not yet to the point where everyone is throwing their normal suds away, but the Pure Ozone Washer is an extremely useful “Phase 2” wash. After someone has been ill in the house, the clothes first get washed in the machine in the normal way, with soap and water. That’s “Phase 1”. Then the clothes are run again through a quick Ozone rinse cycle for better disinfection to prevent other household members from getting sick.
