If you were to ask me what I knew about lead a few days ago, I wouldn’t have had much of an answer for you. In fact, I probably would have unsurely stated “I know it’s supposed to be bad for you?” And then regaled you with the story of how my sweet grandmother still has her entire collection of vintage Fiestaware, which yes, is rumored to be bathed in a lead-ridden glaze. The pieces are lovely, and unfortunately, also lead hazards, so they are currently living in boxes.
But a lot changes in a few days. And with the addition of our new EPA-approved LeadCheck Lead Test Kit, I know a lot more about the dangers of lead exposure and lead poisoning. I also know how easy it is now to test your home’s surfaces for this dangerous toxin with an inexpensive allergen test kit like this one. That way, you’ll know when to take action to prevent serious health effects in you and your family.

Some people prefer primp and pretty household appliances and are more concerned with style than function. Then there are the folks who can appreciate an attractive design but are more focused on the bottom line: does this product really work?
When you want a vacuum that excels in deep cleaning and filtration without all the exterior bells and whistles, Nilfisk vacuum cleaners provide industrial strength and are a quietly kept solution for residential environments. Translation: they may not have the frilly finishing of a traditional household vacuum, but they really, really do work.

Now that the dreaded fall allergy season is upon us and you’ve likely heard the not-so-good news that allergy experts are predicting one of the worst allergy seasons yet, there’s a new air purifier on the block.
Meet the new Oransi v-hepa Finn Air Purifier.
On first glance, you’ll see the Oransi Finn as a sleek tower air cleaner with a remarkable ability to blend in with any almost any décor. With a modern design and neutral colors, you can immediately picture it anywhere in your home – next to your favorite reading chair, for instance. Yet, like most things, there is definitely more to it than meets the eye.

The only thing more disgusting than walking on a grimy floor is “cleaning” it with the same old dirty mop and filthy pail of water. Sure the bucket of water starts out smelling fresh and looking soapy, but by the time you reach the middle of the floor, what was once a bucket of fresh suds has become a cold, gray bacteria fest. And to think we actually dip a spongy mop into that “water” and smear it all over our tile or hardwood floors. Yuck!
It’s ok, we’re all guilty. But there is a better way. A chemical-free, eco-conscious, allergy- and asthma-friendly way. More hygienic than a traditional floor mop and more cost-effective and durable than disposable Swiffer sweepers, a steam cleaner is a healthy way to truly clean your floors of dirt and grime without releasing pollutants from chemical detergents into your indoor environment.
