Sneezing, coughing and runny noses as night. Itchy eyes with tears being squeezed out. My daughters have had allergies all spring and summer and it was particularly worse this year because of the longer rainy season and the larger amounts of pollen in the air. So I brought some big air defense weaponry in to battle these tiny, annoying irritants, the Honeywell Air Purifier HHT-145.


This Purifier packs some major defenses against all of those items that can irritate the sinuses. There are 3 levels of protections in the Honeywell purifier:

  1. Ultraviolet Power – this is the best way to take out viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold spores and germs.
  2. HEPA filters – using a HEPA filter, you can effectively remove up to 99% of airborne particles including dust, pet dander, smoke and pollen.
  3. Odor filters – as the filters work, odor particles are removed as well, controlling pet, cooking and other smells.

Homes are places that are pretty laden with allergens and irritants and other pollutants, believe it or not, even more than you experience outside. Just think about all of the dust that you see coating things around the house. And one big thing that is full of dust (and even dust mites) are stuffed animals. We have enough stuffed animals in our house to open our own store and all too frequently they get shoved under the bed or in a corner somewhere just to collect more dust.

When I was approached to review the Homedics Restore Clean Water System, I wasn’t really sure if it would be techy or geeky enough for me to review it. After all, it is just a water filter, right? The only thing that made me want to dig a bit more into it was the fact that it actually has a power cord so I was curious as to how that would make any difference in water filtering.


While I don’t want this article to be an infomercial, it does make sense to provide video information about the product (so forgive the mini ad here), as I don’t think that I can pull off the same type of video review:

Just watching the video is sort of soothing, I mean soft music, clean colors and crisp water. Anyway…
