Christmas Tree Allergy Symptoms & Remedies

Posted by Tony on December 17th, 2014

xmas-treeYou’ve probably already put up your Christmas tree and may find yourself suffering from a runny nose, sinus headaches or general feeling of fatigue.

If so, it might be more than just the winter cold. A spike in respiratory-related emergency room visits around Christmas caused experts to take a closer look at possible related causes. They discovered that cold, flu, and asthma-type symptoms during the holiday season may have their root cause in Christmas trees. But it’s generally not the tree itself that causes these “real Christmas tree allergies.”

How to Beat Holiday Allergy Triggers

Posted by Tony on December 10th, 2014

holiday-1The arrival of winter offers relief for many allergy sufferers, but setting up for the holidays can cause a host of issues for people with asthma and allergies. If the thought of Christmas brings images of festive trees and plants along with memories of sneezing and sniffling through the holidays, a few simple changes can make your holiday more enjoyable.

Here are some common triggers and how to avoid them this holiday season:

Seasonal Decorationsornaments

Don’t forget the decorations you love so much, the ones that give your home the holiday feel, they’ve been stored away for 11 or so months. And they’re generally kept in attics, basements, garages or other places that are known for harboring dust and mold. Wipe down seasonal ornaments and decorations with a damp cloth when you first dig them out. If you purchase live decorations or plants (more on trees below!), then be sure to toss them as soon as they start to dry out. Learn more about scented candles, trees, and more!

We’re offering 10% off sitewide for purchases over $150 (exclusions apply) and up to $150 off select Dyson heaters and vacuum cleaners. Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll see on sale this Cyber Monday:

10% Off Sitewide

All of these items are useful items for people on your holiday list, so take advantage by entering the coupon code THANKS14 at checkout.

20% Off Space Heaters

Space Heaters can be a life saver this time of year. Who doesn’t have a room that just won’t warm up?  Adding a space heater can offer instant relief to those spaces. Some people also add one to the rooms they use most often and turn their thermostat down a few degrees–which can help save energy.

Regardless of why you may need one, we’ve got 20% off all space heaters by DeLonghi, Honeywell, Soleus, and Sunpentown. Many of the models we have on sale were recently named as top picks by a top consumer reporting agency.

DeLonghi space heaters are known for offering quiet, direct heat. Their lightweight panel heater radiates heat directly in front of it and can be hung on a wall to save floor space. Consider an oil-filled radiator model for consistent, quiet heat across an entire room. Most models can be wheeled into place, feature digital controls, multiple heat settings, and various other top features.

The Delonghi TRN0812T was recently recognized by a top consumer reporting agency for its quiet and effective operation. This simple-to-use model has a GFCI plug to reduce shock, which makes it common for bathrooms and other hazardous areas, and also includes a timer for programming operation. All DeLonghi models are priced at 20% off, so now is a great time to scoop one up.

Honeywell space heaters are known for their energy-saving features and efficient heat. The Honeywell HZ-980 was just named a “Best Buy” by a top consumer reporting agency. This powerful infrared heater blends in just about anywhere and can be personalized to match your comfort needs. Its adjustable design makes it good for heating small rooms or adding supplemental heat to spaces up to 1,000 square feet.

Check out all of Honeywell’s compact room heaters; they’re customer favorites and proven to work well on chilly winter nights.

$150 Off Select Dyson Heaters and Vacuums

DysonResized

Dyson is known worldwide for manufacturing top-quality products with advanced technology. They have a broad range of vacuum options, from handheld models to powerful bagless uprights. For example, Dyson stick vacuums are ideal for moms who need to quickly clean up around kitchens and living rooms.

Consider a Dyson upright for some of the strongest suction on the market and simple bagless bin-emptying. They dig into any type of carpet and come with tools to clean even the tightest space.

Lastly, Dyson’s heater fan is truly one-of-a-kind. It has 10 speeds, bladeless technology, and offers projected long term heat. Also recommended by a top consumer reporting agency, the Dyson AM05 can also be used as a fan during summer months.

Other Cyber Monday deals include 20% off select humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and allergy bedding. Be sure to check out our deals page to see a full list of our Cyber Monday deals. It’s the best time to prepare for the cold holiday season ahead and get a useful product for your home at a discounted price.

Must-Haves For a Healthy, Clean Dorm Room

Posted by Tony on August 5th, 2014

collegeIs summer really almost over? If my morning commute was any indication, the answer is definitely yes. While the end of summer really only affects my commute and time spent at the pool, there are parents across the country sending kids off to college for the first time.

Described as “the best 4 years of your life,” college living situations (particularly old, dirty dorms) are generally less than ideal. I was in for quite a shock when I first walked into my dorm room–it was dusty, hot, and a far cry from the house I grew up in…and for better or worse, my college apartments never got much better.

So whether your child is off to college for the first time or heading back after summer, they’re probably entering a less-than-desirable living situation. Here are some must-have products to improve their air quality and keep them comfortable for the school year ahead.

Eva-Dry E-100 Eliminator Buckets

eva-dry-e-100-eliminator-bucketsThe Eva-Dry E-100 is a unique disposable product that removes moisture and odors for up to 60 days. Its carbon and micro-absorbing crystals absorb moisture, musty odors, and allergens from closets, storage bins, and other small areas. They’re ideal for college students who don’t have easy access to laundry facilities and are living in small dorm rooms with poor air quality.

Even better, they fit into any college student’s budget since they cost around $20. In fact, the Eliminator buckets are on sale right now! See more dorm room must-haves!

Do I Really Need to Buy New Air Purifier Filters?

Chemical Air Freshening: Pleasant Smells, Harmful Side Effects

Posted by Ivey on March 19th, 2014

96513194Two of my favorite things in life are cooking and spending time with my pets. Unfortunately (and despite my best efforts), they both can cause pretty pungent odors in my home. For years, plug-in and aerosol air fresheners were my go-to solution. But after a while I noticed these “fresh smells” often coincided with headaches and allergy flare-ups. I dug a little deeper and didn’t like what I read—luckily I found better ways to keep my home healthy and odor-free.
