10 Best In A Wilderness Survival Equipment List – 2020

I was curious to find out what would be in a wilderness survival equipment list  – 2020. These kits get better all the time.

Whether you find yourself planning for an urban wilderness – we hope things will never come to that, right? – or whether you vacation in remote places, one of these kits will suit your group/family, or you.

This page contains amazon affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what Amazon advertises.

These are good for:

  • Your family home/apartment
  • Car
  • RV
  • Boat
  • Summer cottage
  • Hiking gear
  • Camping equipment

Don’t you want the security of having a preparedness kit ready to go when something happens? I sure do!

Even “small” incidents need preparation. Imagine if a stranger got cut in a fall or collision and they were bleeding, not even seriously.

Don’t you want a pair of latex gloves to put on before you start to touch the blood of a person you don’t know?

If you’re driving or hiking or boating and a fire breaks out, don’t you want masks ready to grab for yourself and your family or friends?

It just makes sense to have these things packed in your car, and in zip lock bags in a back pack.

When you have supplies in stock, you can make your own mini kits for different occasions.

If you’re a pro, well then, you know exactly what you must have ready to go.

These kits are presented in a variety of both tactical professional supplies, and the more ordinary household versions, be that urban, boat, RV, cottage and the like.

The following informational article offers some vital ideas on the topic of getting out safely, or hunkering down with supplies in place. I recommend it! His book sounds good too.

Bugging In Versus Bugging Out by Alex D Newton

Over the past few months I have read multitudes of articles, forum posts and twitter tweets about Bugging In and Bugging Out. Depending upon who you ask, you can get a vast array of answers about which one you should or should not do.

I don’t get it.

Using logic, this should end the debate.

First, let’s define a few terms and get a few things straight;

Definitions –

Prepper: A person that prepares for emergency and disaster events ahead of time in order to increase their survivability.

Bugging Out: A controlled evacuation following a defined plan.

Areas of Contention –

Most articles and posts that I have read stating NOT to Bug Out make a few glaring mistakes and assumptions.

1) Bugging out is leaving behind your family, friends and pets

2) Bugging out is putting on a backpack and heading into the woods to live Rambo style

3) Bugging out is a mad dash into the unknown, rubbing elbows with the unprepared and leaving all of your preps behind

4) The safest and best thing to do is to Bug in, no matter what

So now that we have the definitions and the major areas of contention out in the open, let’s take a look at Bugging Out versus Bugging In.

First we need to understand that as Preppers we are not preparing for a specific event, we are prepping for anything that comes our way. To do otherwise is to do yourself and your family a disservice and place them in danger. That being said, you CANNOT prepare for “anything” if you do not include plans for Bugging Out. There are simply too many situations where Bugging Out is the only option, (house fire, evacuation order, gas leak, wildfire, etc.) the list goes on and on.

Second, Bugging Out is NOT running into the woods with a backpack and a knife and leaving everyone you know behind to fend for themselves. If your house catches on fire and you and your family leave and stay at a Hotel, that is Bugging Out! No woods involved, no eating bugs or making clothing from old car seats involved! At the same time, in case of a major event such as an economic collapse, terrorist attack or anything else of major significance, Bugging Out may still be your only option.

Is your house a safe place? Sure it is! Oh wait, maybe it is! Well, then again, maybe it isn’t! What if you live in a major metropolitan area? If I lived in the downtown area of even suburbs of a city like Chicago for instance and something major happened that I knew was going to displace thousands of people, should I bug out? I can board up my windows and go grab my guns and hunker down and hope that the people coming out of the city pass me by, or I can methodically grab my gear and my family and put my emergency plans into action and not worry about it.

So Bugging Out is the best idea, no matter what?!?!


The best idea is to prepare for BOTH possible outcomes, Bugging In and Bugging Out, and when emergencies and disasters occur you can use logic and common sense to determine your best course of action. Have a Bug Out Location (BOL) or Primary Shelter Site (PSS) ready in case you need to leave, have plans for how to get there and what you need to take with you. Have plans for your family members on where to meet and how to know it’s time to go.

Here is your line of thought for this matter:

1) What is the emergency/disaster?

2) Does it immediately impact the health and welfare of myself or my family?

3) Is my current location provisioned and safe (defensible)?

4) Is the current event likely to get worse or spread?

5) Is the current event likely to end or improve soon?

6) Do I have the proper equipment for surviving this event?

7) Am I likely to NEED to defend my home during this event?

8) If I need to Bug Out, do I have the proper plans in order?

9) (If you have a PSS) Would it be safer to be at my PSS?

There is no debate folks, you are NOT prepping if you have not considered bugging out and then prepared for it. Preppers PREPARE, it’s what we do.

10 Best Cordless Leaf Blowers With Battery And Charger 2020

10 Best Cordless Leaf Blowers With Battery And Charger 2020

Image by Rebecca Schönbrodt-Rühl from Pixabay

Safety, convenience and non-polluting are the three top reasons to buy one of the cordless leaf blowers with battery and charger included.

  • Safe – no cords dragging across the property
  • Convenient – just pull off the charger when you’re ready to get outside to blow the leaves
  • Non-polluting – no gas exhaust to smell up your yard (or the neighbor’s too)

You will see while perusing the ten products below that some also include other tools such as a hedge or weed trimmer, as part of the price. If you need those items, these are great deals.

As beautiful as the autumn leaves are in their multi-colored splendor, they still need to be cleaned up! If you have a small yard, raking it by hand is good exercise and can be a pleasurable time spent outdoors.

Large yards and patios with garden areas are easily cleaned up with a leaf blower that leaves you free to walk around your patio furniture, garden beds, shrubs and trees.

If you are sensitive to smells or allergic to smog, the odor of a neighbor or yard crew blowing leaves with a gasoline driven blower is disconcerting. 

You know it is going to hang around, especially on those hotter fall days with not a leaf stirring. 

That smog can trigger an asthma attack, runny nose or coughing fit, right?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everybody used an electric leaf blower? No nasty smells, ever!

The Turbo level can “blow the gravel off my driveway” one user says. Wet leaves in the gutters are no problem either.

Here is a video showing you the features of this popular leaf blower.

Westinghouse Cordless 20V+ Complete Tool Set


Five Star reviews are given for this kit. Buyers who used to use the gas powered tools find these just as powerful, and much lighter.

The leaf blower can remove wet grass off the driveway,and  that shows its power!

The string trimmer adjusts easily between a 10 and 12” cutting path. It pivots 90° using five positions that transition between trimming and wheeled edging functions. That’s convenient, isn’t it?

The 24” blade hedge trimmer will cut through up to 3/4″ thickness, and the round handle enables a steady grip without over exertion.

The leaf blower is light weight at 2.7 pounds and is not noisy. 

A three-piece aluminum shaft and a premium 8” Oregon Double Guard Low Kickback Bar and Chain that self-lubricates during operation provides a good performance and maintains the materials in this chainsaw.

The high-performance Westinghouse 20V+ Lithium-Ion 2 Ah battery with LED-indicator battery life indicator provides;

  • 30 minute string trimmer run time
  • 35 minute hedge trimmer run time
  • 20 pole saw cuts (3. 5″ branch
  • 15 minute leaf blower run time with 20V+ 2 Ah battery

The blowing force of up to 90 MPH and 400 CFM, and the heavy duty jet fan motor creates enough power to keep your property clean of leaves and dirt, with no gas smell!

Snapper XD 82V MAX 550 CFM Cordless Leaf Blower Kit with 2.0 Battery & Rapid Charger, 1687879, SXDBL82K


Do you think it takes about 40 minutes to clean your yard with a leaf blower? If  so you are in luck with this Briggs & Stratton 82V lithium ion 2.0Ah battery with its run time.

It has a powerful 550 CFM / 130mph blowing speed to blow through your leaves and other yard debris.

You’ll love the speed control which allows you to  maintain  the airflow along with a stable, anti-tip base design

These batteries can be used for other Snapper tools

Comes with two choices for Protection Plans.

Rated highly for its power one user says he  tried to ” use it to blow off some floor mats in his garage but he ended up blowing them out the door instead. :)” And that is an 86 year old who is glad his heavier gas blower stopped working. 

Greenworks Pro 80V Cordless Brushless Axial Blower, Battery and Rapid Charger Included


Do you have a larger yard? Or small business space you take care of?

You will get 70 minutes run-time on speed 1 (low) / 28 minutes run-time on speed 2 (medium) / 12 minutes run-time on speed 3 (high) with fully charged 2Ah battery with this Greenworks Pro 80V brushless axial blower.

  • 125 mph / 500 cfm performance
  •  3 speed options, and a variable speed trigger control
  • Cushioned overmold grip

WORX WG584.1 40V 4.0Ah Lithium WORXAIR Turbine Blower Battery and Charger Included


This unit is 11 pounds and designed for one hand use. It is engineered with TURBINE technology that delivers up to 430 CFM of air velocity.

I could not find an exact definition of Turbine Technology, which has a trademark. It went here and got some information. I conclude that this leaf blower has a tiny turbine in it. 

(I am just not tecchie about yard tools, but go off the results and customer reviews for ones I haven’t used.) 😀 

This turbine motored blower has a 3-speed control with a TURBO boost to blast leaves off any surface.

The highly efficient brushless motor contributes to a longer lasting power.

The on-board battery charge level indicator keeps you apprised of remaining run time.

Please note: The uint comes with 2 20V batteries. The prior generations’ 40V batteries will not operate this tool as it is not compatible. 

LiTHELi 40V 480CFM 92MPH Leaf Blower with Brushless Motor, 2.5AH Battery and Charger


This company offers:

  1.  A 90 days money back guaranty
  2. 3 years warranty for battery
  3. 5 years warranty for machine

It is very light weight at 5.7 pounds.

This product comes with a 550W brushless (delivering more longevity and quiet performance) motor powered by a LiTHELi 40V 2.5 Ah battery.

It is a smaller and lighter leaf blower which may be perfect for your smaller yard, patio or front yard/driveway space. 

The weight will not challenge a smaller person or child. How handy is that?

At the soft grip handle, a variable speed dial and a turbo function gives you both comfort and control to make your yard maintenance a little easier.

It will run for 60 minutes!

The charger is quick and has a battery charge indicator.

Customers give this one a 4.6 Star Rate for it’s weight, power over other brands of electric blowers, and ease of use.

WORX WG547.3 20V 4.0Ah Cordless Turbine Leaf Blower with Gutter Pro Kit Battery and Charger Included


This powerful Turbine blower provides you with 360 CFM at 75 mph

At only 5.7 lbs., you can control this blower with one hand without strain

Safely clean your rain gutters from leaves and other debris (mine had some bird nests in them that had to go!) while standing on the ground. Easily join the 8 feet of tubes of the Gutter Pro Kit together and you will have an overall reach of 11 feet.

Enjoy the two speed control while getting all your various jobs done.  No tripping on cords as you clear dirt, dust, bird feathers and all the other detritus that somehow appears in your yard.

And there is more!

The Gutter Pro kit has universal fit to work with most handheld leaf blowers!


Scotts Outdoor Power Tools LB20062S 62-Volt 140MPH 500CFM Cordless Leaf Blower, 2.5AH Battery & Fast Charger Included


This battery is compatible with all Scotts 62-Volt Lithium-Ion products; Warranty details: 5-year tool warranty; 3-year battery warranty. 

The rubber grip is comfortable and you can reach the speed alternator button without putting the unit down.

This is super light at 5.2 pounds.

All things being relative, this unit is highly praised for smaller yards and lighter chores. It will quickly clean up grass trimmings and the weekly leaf fall, but may need a re-charge or two for the autumn leaf collection.

That’s probably a great trade-ff for it’s lightness and slightly less power. 

It all depends on how much lawn you have, and what kind of trees.  Maybe it is the perfect machine for your yard spaces, including flower beds.

It is customer praised for quiet, comfort of use and effectiveness, even from those who previously used gas blowers.

Ways To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

What I like about these battery charged cordless leaf blowers is that you can refrain from spewing fossil fuels into the air around your home.

Fossil fuels contribute to your carbon footprint, or, the ways in which  you personally contribute to the amount of carbon emissions into the atmosphere. 

Cleaning and trimming your yard with electric tools is just one way to lower your personal dumping of pollution. We can only control so much, right?

Here are a few more ways to do a little more, if and when you can:

  • Car pool to work/take public transport/ride a bike
  • Install solar panels (even a small array to recharge your batteries) if you can
  • Add a wind turbine to your property if that is useful in your region
  • Maximize daylight in your home – open your curtains
  • Use cold water for laundry as much as possible (you can get an enzyme additive that kills dust mites, see at the bottom here)
  • Don’t your use clothes dryer but hang up laundry outside when weather allows
  • Switch off appliances when not in daily use. Unplug if they have a lot of LEDS 
  • Get solar powered motion detected outside lights for your home (see below)

I hope you don’t think I’ve gone off topic! Because this is all related.  Here are three of the handy items I mentioned just above.

LITOM Premium Solar Lights Outdoor with 270°Wide Angle Illumination(4 Pack), IP67 Waterproof Wireless Solar Motion Sensor Lights,Easy-to-Install Security Lights for Front Door, Yard, Garage, Deck


Brabantia Lift-O-Matic Rotary Dryer Clothes Line – 196 feet, 311048


Your clothes dryer eats up a huge amount of electricity or gas. It is the first recommended “get rid of” appliance for lowering your carbon footprint. The one above may be suitable for your back yard.

Or, you may be more able to use a retractable line like this one:

Ki Knight Retractable Clothesline Adjustable 13.8 Feets Stainless Steel Rope, Drill-Free & Wall Mounted Method Heavy Duty Clothes Dryer with Glue and Screws Suitable for Indoor/Outdoor(Silver)


Kleen-Free Naturally Preformed Enzyme Cleaner (Fresh and Clean Scent, 64-Ounce Ready to Use)


Kill those dust mites when you wash (laundry, or anything!) with cold water. Hot water will kill them, but warm/cold water will just give them a bath! 

The following contributed article discusses the advantages of the cordless leaf blower with battery and charger, and some other handy tools without cords too. 

Best Reasons to Buy Cordless Leaf Blowers by Al Smitty

Cordless leaf blowers can be safer and much more convenient than traditional models. These can do the same work without the need for plug-ins and extension cords. This is great especially if you have a large area that needs attention. There are many newer models of lawn and garden tools available that can make your life much easier.

Yard work has never been easier than with the products we have today. The leaf blower can be used in your lawn or garden with one easy step. You simply charge them when not in use and then when you need it then it is ready to use. All you do is unplug it from the charger and you are ready to go.

This is only one of the many cordless tools you can buy for use around the home. Cordless drills and saws can make home repairs a snap. They also have cordless screw drives and a host of other items to choose from. These are all rechargeable and easy to use. The batteries rarely, if ever, need to be replaced.

Please remember that these are still motorized tools and may cause injury if not operated properly. Always keep out of reach of children and read warning labels carefully. These can be just as dangerous as tools with a cord, maybe more so because a child could take them to another area out of your sight.

If you are worried about potential damage to flowers or plants from cordless leaf blowers then you might consider investing in raised flower beds. This can also be great so that you don’t have to stop or bend as much when working in your flower beds. This can also help prevent weed growth from occurring.

If you hate having cords stretched across your yard then there are a few other items you may want to consider as well. They have solar lights that can be put in your yard to light your driveway, lawn, or garden. These run off of solar energy and do not need cords or batteries. They also make lights like this for security purposes and even as porch or deck lights.

There is a new zero radius turn mower to help keep your lawn looking like it was cut by a professional with very little work on your part. These can go around trees and flower beds with ease. If you still need it then they also have cordless weed eaters available as well. Everything you need for you home and garden has been made simple for you.

You can find cordless leaf blowers at a store near you or online and a number of retail outlets. These are a great buy and can usually be found for a terrific price. To be sure and get the best product you should always read before you buy. It is also usually a good idea to buy tools like this new as a used tool may not hold a charge like a new one would.

Are you new to shopping for a snow blower? The following article will give you some useful tips. 

Use These Tips When Your Researching the Right Snow Blower by Bill U Cobern

If you possess acres of land, a troublesome back, or a bunch of idle offspring, a snow blower might be a prudent deal this winter period. Sorry to say, buying one of these gizmos isn’t as straightforward as running into and out of Home Depot: you possess to make your mind up how large a unit you require, what type of features it must possess, and whether it must run on gasoline or electricity. Here is a quick guide for the snow hampered.

Step 1 – Take a minute and look at the work ahead. Clearing a pathway on the sidewalk to your front entrance would best fit an electric model. There is always the difficulty of a short electric chord in some situations. A single stage snow blower is the top option. Areas where large amounts of snow fall often and having a large driveway require a two stage snow blower. This more vigorous type of blower breaks up the snow and ice with a steel auger before propelling it out the chute.

Step 2 – Are you tough?. As you may have guessed, two-stage snow blowers are extensively heavier than their one-stage cousins are up to 100 pounds for a gasoline-powered model, compared to as little as 10 pounds for a single-stage electric. If your disabled, hiring someone to shovel the snow is your best bet.

Step 3 – What is your tolerance for noise levels?. Gas-powered, two-stage snow blowers can be as loud as commercial construction tools, so if you possess inchy neighbors, try to find a moderately quiet model (you can frequently find the decibel level on the package; if not, ask a merchant). A quiet blower is the electric snow blower, but you will lose effectiveness.

Step 4 – Type of clearing surface is important. Gravel sidewalks and driveways are not made for the single stage snow blower. This blower will kick up rubble since the blades spin fast. Gravel driveways call for a two stage snow blower since the blades of this blower sit off the ground and will not toss rocks. Safety always comes first and you don’t desire to hurt someone.

Step 5 – Decide how multipurpose you are. If you’re the sort who feels awkward pouring gas into anything but a vehicle, a gasoline-powered blower possibly will not be the finest alternative, because it requires typical refueling. Plowing your driveway by means of an electric blower plugged into a wall with plenty of electricity sitting in wet conditions possibly will not be your choice.. This decision is all yours.

Why a Wine Refrigerator Is a Great Idea by Eric N M

“Wine expert or not, many of us know all about the various ways people would store wine before the invention of electricity. If you graduated high school from anywhere (yes, even my hometown), you will likely know that the wealthy stored their wine in caves and underground cellars hundreds of years before the inventions of Edison, Bell, Tesla, and others gave way to the electrical revolution.

There is a reason underground cellars and caves were seen as ideal for storage: it’s because they had all of the ingredients for proper storage of wine bottles: the spaces were cool, dark, and still. The bottles were also able to sit sideways, allowing the flavor of every bottle to remain.

And this way the way wine was stored for century upon century, and it wasn’t until someone had the bright idea of creating an “electric refrigerator” to store food that someone eventually thought up the idea of using this technology to store wine in a setting that was ideal. Thus, we have wine refrigerators and wine coolers.

Both run on electricity, both give you the ideal setting and both can be sit virtually anywhere that is dark in your home. A corner of a bedroom, a den that has no windows, or a basement that has never seen the light of day is all ideal places. It seems like the miracle of Science, right? Thanks to electricity, anyone can store wine in a safe and protected environment (and temperature). However, while both are incredible “flavor-saving” devices, equal they are not.

I won’t lie, a wine refrigerator and a wine cooler are both incredibly awesome. Once you go from storing wine in a refrigerator (a terrible idea) to storing it in a wine cool and/or wine refrigerator, you will be blown away by the difference in taste: the flavor is stronger, there is no flat taste to be found, and honestly, it keeps wine delicious!

Whether you decide to choose the wine refrigerator or the wine cooler, you need to first step back and take a look at how you drink wine and what type of wine you purchase. If you purchase mostly white wine, then you will want to purchase the wine refrigerator for this fact alone: white wine cannot be stored as long as traditional wine.

Why does this matter? It’s simple really: the humidity in a wine refrigerator is uncontrollable. It stays around a constant 30% at all times, whereas the humidity for preserving wine is meant to stay at around the 60 – 70% mark. Over time, the humidity in a space can start to harm wine, making wine refrigerators unsuitable for storing in the long-term. Thus, since one should finish a bottle of white wine in weeks and/or months rather than years, it makes perfect sense to use a wine cooler for storing your white wine only.

As you have undoubtedly figured out by now (and I hope you have or you haven’t been paying attention to my article), wine meant for storage in the long-term should always be stored in a wine cabinet. The reasoning is simple (and again, if you have to ask yourself “why,” you haven’t been paying attention): because a wine cabinet has controllable humidity. A cabinet’s humidity will assuredly stay in the 60 – 70% mark at all times, allowing you to store your wine bottles for as long as you want. Care to store that expensive bottle of wine for 10+ years? You are able to do so, and longer if you wish. Essentially, you could store a bottle of wine for 50+ years and a wine cabinet would be able to keep it tasting incredible (not counting the shelf life of the wine- after all, if you are storing white wine for 50 years, be prepared for a grave disappointment when you open the bottle).

While stated previously, it must be stated once more: the beauty of a wine cooler and wine refrigerator is they allow the individuals that are serious about storing their wine to do so. You do not have to have your own cave, your own underground cellar, or anything else that only the wealthy can afford (not sure if people actually own their own caves anymore though). Now, you can store it anywhere in your home, and you will get the same flavor from your favorite bottles as you would if you had stored them in a wine refrigerator.

Whether you want to purchase a cooler so you can store your spirits for the short-term or you want a wine cooler to store it long-term, it has never been easier to ensure your wine keeps its original flavor. Yes, the age of invention definitely has its perks, and if anyone ever disagrees with you, remind them this: you can preserve your wine anywhere in your home: 100 years ago, the very idea would be scoffed at. Thank you Science for allowing me to preserve wine anywhere in my home!

If want to learn which 12 to 32 bottle wine coolers on the market are best suited for long-term wine storage, please check out wine cooler reviews [http://www.bestwinecoolersreview.com]. I have performed extensive research on all the listed wine coolers while taking into account genuine customer feedback to hopefully bring you guys the best reviews for wine refrigerators.”

10 Best Air Purifiers And Allergies 2021 – What Is The One For Your Home

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay


I learned something really important recently about air purifiers and allergies – that a purifier – a machine that cleans the air – isn’t enough to eliminate smoke particles. What are the best air purifiers and allergies removal machines?


In light of the catastrophic wild fires we have all over the world now, everyone needs a particle filter and an air purifier.



This page contains amazon affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what Amazon advertises.


Although you already have one, no, two. Every human being is born with built in air filters. Your lungs


Yet, you can’t rinse out the dust from them. You can’t remove the toxic gases from VOC’s, fire retardants, pesticides, fabric conditioners and color fasteners, bleaches and household cleaners.


In fact, it is like your lungs have a big Welcome! sign while they take in all those harmful things.


Nor can you order a new pair. At least, that is rare.


Your  lungs can get clogged up beyond what coughing will eject. Then they can become inflamed and permanently congested. 


And you can prevent that to a large degree.


And here is another factor I just read about – toxic air can make you fat!


Studies have been done on both children and rats. In the children, no artificial was created, but kids who lived in more polluted areas tended to be at least two pounds heavier on the same diet.


Rats exposed to heavy smog type air were 18% heavier than rats given clean air. Why?


Because toxins wreck havoc on your hormones, resulting in weight gain, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome – inability to lose weight.  


A good air purifier/filter machine is like an external pair of lungs – or several more pairs, depending on the size.


Update: A friend recommended this to me today while we were chatting. Since the concerns about sanitation during the Covid-19 pandemic affect us all, I wanted to add this to the page here.



Customers like this item because:

  • It kills mold/mildew in the air handler coils
  • Greatly reduces sneezing and other allergy symptoms
  • Clean air makes the whole house smell fresh
  • Common colds don’t circulate through the air system
  • Helps with peace of mind in this time of Covid-19


I say go for it! Get better sleep, better oxygenation, better moods! Recently I decided to add this item on this page, because so many need a ready to grab and go nebulizer.

So here is the 10 best air purifiers and allergies relief list 2020. It will help you choose one for your home.


Last summer there were no wildfires in my immediate region. However, the smoke traveled into our area and it was necessary to wear a mask. 


I had an air purifier then, but no particulate filter. 


If you have respiratory allergies, you need both (and you can get them in one machine). I will outline why, in discussing the machines in this article.


When considering price, work out the cost of replacing filters, and how often, when looking at a cheaper machine. The more expensive ones may weigh in as a better buy when you do the math.

IQAir [HealthPro Plus Air Purifier] Medical-Grade Air [HyperHEPA Filter] – Allergies, Pets, Asthma, Odors, Smoke, Pollen, Dust; Swiss Made


Special features:


  • This machine comes with a Medical-Grade Air Filter and is 100 times more efficient than HEPA air filters
  • IQAir’s exclusive HyperHEPA filters stop ultrafine particles (down to 0.003 microns)
  • Filters out the most minute particles that have been detected: 10x smaller than a virus
  • Powerful spatial reach: covers a room size up to 1,125 sq ft (104.5 sq m)

What Are Ultrafines?


The vendor explains:

  • “Ultrafines are the smallest, most numerous, and most harmful particles in the air. They comprise ~90% of all airborne particles.
  • Ultrafines (including viruses) easily penetrate the lung tissue and travel to all vital organs, including the brain.
  • Ultrafines have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.”


There is more to learn everyday, isn’t there? 


Was there ever pure clean air here on earth? Was that before man discovered fire? Maybe.


Now we here on this beautiful planet have reached a tipping point. Uncontrolled fossil fuel burn has advanced our civilization beyond the wildest dreams of 200 years ago. 


Now we pay the price. We must clean up. 


And we can only start at home, right?


I believe this machine is the one to do it. It is expensive. But it is a lot cheaper than the related diseases mentioned above, and not just financially.


The filters can be cleaned as they accumulate dust. This prolongs their life considerably. (see the Q&A on amazon).


Five Star raters state they last 2-4 years anyway. That’s good to know! 


This unit is considered the best. 


Buy on Amazon from an Authorized Dealer, to get the best warranty. Or, a warranty at all. You can contact the manufacturer to make sure.

Doesn’t that just get your travel bug going?


The coarse dust filter is washable (but may not be right for your environment).


This personal unit does not filter gases (VOC’s, odors).


Great for your kids’ rooms especially when they have a sleep over, to prevent catching colds et al.


Easy to move to the playroom (8.55 pounds) and kitchen, nursery or home office.


It is not cheap for a small unit but think about the savings in time, taking kids (or self) to Urgent Care for sniffles and coughs, trips to the drugstore for antihistamines, and saving a good chink of that money too.

It has a timer feature for 2-4-8 hour run times.


It is 100% Ozone Free. I don’t have a problem with ozone, but there has been relentless propaganda against its use. 


Of course, if you can smell ozone from an air cleaner, you turn down the level until you don’t smell it! Simple.


Yet since the earlier days of air cleaners which all used ozone, there is such an impressive improvement in air filter/purifier designs, that the ozone argument doesn’t really matter any more.


My personal choice is the first one on this page, albeit expensive.


Always click through to Amazon to see if there is a financing plan for the one you want. It may be better than putting it on your credit card. Sometimes getting a new reward card will take $100 of the price. 


And always check for Coupons! You never know what you’re going to see when you go to the product page. Sometimes a nice surprise!


The following article expounds on the need for an air purifier.

Air Purifiers for the Home: Why You Need One by Kelley Kennedy


“Air quality and breathability within your home is a serious concern. For some people with certain respiratory conditions, such as allergies or asthma, clean air in their homes is a non-negotiable. Otherwise they simply cannot breathe comfortably. It may be scary to note that government agencies such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) frequently report that indoor air can be more polluted than the air outside. Whether you have a health condition or not, you could definitely benefit from breathing cleaner air with the help of air purifiers for your home.

Benefits of an Air Purifier 
One of the main benefits of air purifiers is simple – you can actually breathe more easily. How do these devices work? Air cleaners use filters (also called collector grids) to purify the air inside your home. You might be surprised but microscopic allergens like dust, mold, mildew, pet dander, pollen, and chemical pollutants frequently “live” in the same indoor area as you do. And air pollutants can come from practically any source – furniture, rugs, carpets, toys, pets, even common household cleaning products.

If you suffer from allergies, you already know that microscopic, invisible-to-the eye particles can make it miserable to breathe. Symptoms you may experience include sneezing, watery eyes, difficulty in breathing, and a runny nose. While it is one thing to experience allergies outside, it is something entirely different to have to suffer in your own home. As far as other health concerns, children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to illness when they breathe unclean air.

Maybe you’re not dealing with uncomfortable health conditions exactly. Maybe you are just sensitive to strong, hard smells or offensive odors. Simple things like leftover food odors, cigarette smoke, and dog or cat smell can be enough to drive your olfactory senses insane. The great thing about air purifiers is the ability to remove the offensive smells and leave your air feeling cleaner and fresher.

Types of Air Purifiers for the Home

  • UV: UV stands for ultraviolet light – and you guessed it – this kind of air cleaner uses UV lights to destroy microorganisms like bacteria, mold, and viruses. While you might deduce that this kind of high-tech purifier is the best choice for your home, also consider that these devices have limited functionality, specifically there are many different kinds of pollutants it cannot remove from the air. Because of this little fact, some people choose to use this kind of purifier in conjunction with another. Some well-known brand names for UV air purifiers include Ionic Breeze and AllerAir.
  • Ionizing: This type of air cleaner uses a different process to cleanse the air – an ion generator. Electric charge from the ion generate causes pollutants to bind together. Once bound together, the micro-particles form large particles. These purifiers typically come with a collector plate because otherwise the particles will stick to every surface of your home and cause another problem – dirt. Some examples of ionizing air purifiers are the Surround Air and the Ionic Pro.
  • HEPA: This kind of air cleansing device earns a reputation as one of the best for its efficiency. Scientific studies have revealed that HEPA cleaners are responsible for removing 99.97% of air pollutants. Many sufferers from asthma or allergies use these as devices of choice. Some popular choices are Blueair, Hunter QuietFlo, and Honeywell.

Did you know that air purifiers are effective at removing up to 99% of allergens and microorganisms that make you sick from the air – like pollen, mold spores, and dust mites?

Best Electric Pressure Washer For The Money 2020

Enjoy the benefits of having the best electric pressure washer to give your property a fresh clean look, ongoing. Clean your driveway, deck, patio, car, and other surroundings faster, with less physical strain, and save up to five times the water usage.

The vendors of the 10 best units all state that the engines, nozzles and other parts have been designed for longevity and ease of use, not to mention the 5X energy and water savings.

Reviewers support these claims.

This page contains amazon affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what Amazon advertises.

What is a good PSI for a pressure washer?

It depends what your needs are. The following factors determine which pressure washer you will need:

  • A best electric pressure washer for house cleaning – a large, two or three story home made of brick
  • A best electric pressure washer for vinyl siding cleaning
  • A best electric pressure washer for auto detailing
  • A best electric pressure washer for concrete – do you have large concrete driveway/patio/walkways
  • A best electric pressure washer for decks

How many PSI Do I need to clean concrete?

Most pressure washer testers report that to wash concrete with caked dust and dirt, oils or other sticky debris, a gas powered machine is required.

The gas powered washers are good for commercial use and for cleaning some large homes, driveways and other concrete spaces.

This is because you need a machine that can adjust up to 3000 psi. (pounds per square inch of pressure).

To power wash your deck or the exterior of most homes, you only require 1500 psi.This is where the electric pressure washer will suffice.

How Do I Choose The Best Electric Pressure Washer For Car Detailing?

You need about up to 2000 psi for good efficient vehicle washing. This pressure will not damage your car paint.


What is the best electric pressure washer soap?

Can you use dish detergent in a pressure washer?
The main Con in using detergent is that you can’t wash it down the drain. It is obviously a big problem to dispose of the water properly.
The combination of water, pressure, and soap can clean most grime and stains. If you use a natural soap, you can simply wash it down the drain, because it is not a chemical poison. 
Hot water may help in certain cases, but most of the time cold water will suffice.



Soaps are viewed as natural products made from natural oils. fats and combined with salts. The formulas will dissolve grime and oily stains.

Pressure washer brands produce soaps for you to buy and use with their products. You might assume you can simply wash these soaps down the storm drains, yet it is imperative that you check the ingredients before doing so.

Electric pressure washers, unlike the gas powered machines, may develop clogs from using soap. Detergents will not cause clogs like soap, but then you still have the problem of disposing the run off.

Detergents are synthetic products and are a threaten environmental health.


When To Use a Soap


Cleaning tougher grime on cars, boats, driveways and patios, can be aided by a soap. Yet, a strong brush on an extension pole can do the job along with water.

If your property has developed strong stains, you may never get them out completely.

A natural soap is always better to use on your auto, to avoid damage on the paint job.

Again, you can use detergents, but you must have a means of avoiding polluting the environment.


What about using vinegar with my pressure washer?

A solution of 3 percent white vinegar and 7 percents water is a mild and harmless formula and is beneficial to wash away mildew that has accumulated in areas around your home.

Vinegar can also be effective against light dirt and grime.

I prefer to make my own pressure washer detergent – any ideas?

“Mix 1/3 cup of phosphate-free laundry soap, 2/3 cup of powdered household cleanser, and a gallon of water in a large bucket. Stir the mixture slowly to avoiding making it sudsy, and mix it well. Pour the solution into the tank of your pressure washer and clean all your appropriate surfaces regularly.”
That tip is from DoItYourself.com
The pressure washer you ultimately purchase will suit your budget, your property needs, and whether you want one you don’t need to carry, one that has the correct length of hose you need, and perhaps is even portable and cordless.

The following is a contributed article you may find useful if you are about to buy your electric pressure washer for the first time.

Adopt Electric Pressure Washers for Better Cleaning by Steve Benet

Electric pressure washers have made their way into our modern lifestyles. They help remove the layers of dust that settles down when overlooked in your daily routine. They can help make your living place hygienic and beautiful, removing the settled dust and filth. They can also help remove age-old stains, infusing freshness in homes. With busy schedules, it becomes impossible to remove the caked dust manually.

An electric washer helps remove dirt in minutes, saving the entire weekend that was previously reserved for cleaning. Moreover, these have an edge over the traditional gas pressure washers. Gas washers are not only more expensive, but also require more maintenance than the electric ones. Electric washers stop automatically, whereas the user has to stop the gas ones manually. Electric washers offer many further benefits and turn out to be perfect for contemporary busy lifestyles.

The very thought of gas power washers brings memories of high decibel noise. Even the neighbors come to know about the cleaning schedule at home. Here electric washers come to the rescue of both you and your neighbors. They do not make ultra high-decibel noise while cleaning the furniture and accessories. In fact, they make virtually no noise at all. Even sleeping kids do not come to know when the electric pressure washer is working. But note that the absence of noise does not make electric washers less effective than the gasoline ones.

They are as well-equipped and effectual as the gas washers when it comes to cleaning for most jobs. Electric ones work on lower output pressure and are suitable for both indoor as well as outdoor cleaning, unlike gas ones which cannot be used indoors due to noisy operation and dangerous fumes. An electric pressure washer makes a home and its exteriors look good. They can be the best equipment for people suffering with dust allergies. It is not possible to hire expensive cleaning services every weekend, hence these machines also prove beneficial in this respect.

An electric power washer does not require any sort of fuel. Hence, there is literally no exhaust, making them environmentally friendly. The gas ones do not only emit fumes, but also the noxious smells that makes them unbearable. Furthermore, gas machines require more maintenance than the electric ones. Gas machines are equipped with a combustion engine that requires regular upkeep. Users have to overlook the fuel mixing, oil requirement, etc. Gas machines also require pull starting. Therefore, when the user takes a rest between cleaning, it does not stop automatically and consumes oil in the duration. If users take the trouble to stop the machine, as they do not want to hear the noise, the machine requires a pull-start again.

An electric pressure washer is easy to handle for petite people because they are lightweight compared to the gas machines. For people, who regularly go to the gym, the gas ones are easier to handle. Otherwise, the gas machine itself becomes gym equipment. Women, who do not want to strain their beautiful hands, prefer to make use of electric pressure washers to avoid frequent manicures. An electric power washer is worthy of investment as they last long and work well. There are many types of electric washers available in the market that can suit every need. They are compact, lightweight, and look great. They fit almost anywhere and are easy to use.

“People susceptible to seizures, such as people with epilepsy should not receive tDCS” – wikipedia

If you are new to the topic of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, you may enjoy the following article.

A Guide to Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) by Nick Madge

“Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, more commonly known as tDCS is the process of applying a small electrical current across a particular region of the brain. This is usually done non-invasively via two small electrodes placed on the scalp.

Originally designed as a treatment for patients who had suffered a stroke or similar brain injury tDCS has recently gained increased public attention due its reported capability to increase human cognitive abilities in healthy people.

So whats the truth behind these claims?

For a while research has shown evidence that stimulating specific regions associated with certain mental functions can deliver a temporary improvement in using those functions. For example research carried out by Richard Chi at the University of Sydney showed that participants could double their scores on tests designed to measure visual memory and perception when the Anterior Temporal Lobes were correctly stimulated.

Similar studies have shown temporary improvements in verbal and linguistic skills, mathematical ability and motor skills.

A key development in the potential for this technology to be used to improve human performance is the delivery of lasting benefits. This is what some research is now starting to show.

Due to Neuroplasticity, the capability of the human brain to adapt to the demands placed upon it, using tDCS for a sufficient duration and sufficient magnitude of current can cause lasting changes to occur in the brain.

Studies have shown that structural changes are visible within the brain as little as five days after tDCS.

How does it work?

A common misconception with tDCS is that you can simply sit back and let the current do all the work. This just isn’t true, in order to get the benefits, you have to be using the associated area of the brain at the same time as the performance enhancing stimulation is applied.

For example, research carried out by USAF at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, showed that the time needed to train pilots to pick out targets in complex radar images could be cut in half when tDCS was used. However the pilots still needed to actively interpret those radar images and pick the targets for themselves, the tDCS just made the learning process faster.

Can anyone use it?

Safety protocols have been developed that show tDCS is safe for human use, however there are a number of caveats that it is worth bearing in mind. Firstly as always if you have any kind of medical condition you should consult with your doctor before considering using tDCS. Secondly although there are companies that are now offering tDCS you can ‘do at home’, this is a far more risky process.

The research in which real cognitive benefits have been demonstrated has all been carried out in laboratory conditions, with qualified researchers able to pinpoint the correct regions of the brain and calibrate the currents carefully. This is unlikely to be the case with a ‘do it yourself’ kit.

So at least for now tDCS remains an exciting development to look forward to, and an option of improving cognitive performance that we will all likely see becoming commercially available in our lifetime, but not yet a technique that can be safely, reliably and effectively used at home.

For an alternative safer method for increasing cognitive performance, neuroscientific research has shown a number of cognitive training exercises are effective at improving intelligence. A guide to these exercises and the research that supports them is available from http://www.HowtoIncreaseIQ.net”

Mind Gear’s mindLightz Wireless Mind Machine & AVS System for iOS Mobile Devices


“Today” this item is out of stock. The reviews are so good, that I am going to leave this up on my page here, since by the time you are reading, it may be back. It is an excellent product to keep an eye on, and I already have it in mind for a gift.

The maker says it will be available for Android devices too. Maybe that’s why he’s so busy right now!

A one man shop, customer service is highly praised. Fast and personal responses by email and phone, are noted.

This is an App with lightframes.

What is focus, anyway? Maybe it’s keeping your eye on the prize? Ignoring social pressure, peer pressure, whatever the flavor of the month is?

Going steadily toward your goal?

Maybe you’re still defining your goals?

Want a lifestyle change? Better health? Once committed, you can achieve any number of goals. You know this, right? Or you wouldn’t be looking at these devices to help you fast forward to success, health and happiness.

As soon as this device is available, I will be revisiting this section to write more. I am sure there will be updates and improvements.

Sound Oasis Vibroacoustic Therapy System


This unit gets a five star review from a vibroacoustic therapist. That is a great vote!

One user has Parkinson’s Disease and gets relief from insomnia with it.

Used for:

  • Migraine
  • Shoulder and neck pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia 
  • Joint and muscle tension,immobility and soreness

Mindplace Procyon AVS System Light and Sound Meditation Mind Machine


This unit offers 50 pre-programmed options for sound and light sessions. Exploring them will bring you to the ideal ones for:

  • Concentration
  • Study/assimilating new ideas
  • Meditation
  • Better sleep

We can’t all retire to a monastery and practice meditation for a few years, right? We have to hack the traditional system with one of these modern devices and get traction on our potential!

This device helped one user with management of panic attacks initiated while sleeping, real night terrors. Relief resulted after years of torture from this condition, where therapy and medication had failed. 

That’s pretty awesome isn’t it?

Muse 2: The Brain Sensing Headband


This machine is compatible with both Apple and Android devices. 

As you learn to meditate and improve your focus, get reinforcing feedback. Improve to the max!

The vendor states you can “track your brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements to guide your total meditation experience.”

I think that is especially helpful if you’re new at brain training, don’t you?

What you get:

  • Brain Sensing Headband
  • Quick Start Guide
  • USB Recharge Cable

Earbuds or headphones options are up to you.

From a Muse I customer:” The original brain bio-rhythm biofeedback program has been improved and the response is at least as good, or better, than Muse 1. The percentages of time at “calm” correspond to what is found with Muse 1. The issues with connectivity, battery charge appears to have been totally corrected. The Muse 2 is more nimble and lighter than Muse 2. I am looking forward to the upgrades; this is a very interesting and promising technology!”

That’s a pretty good endorsement, isn’t it?

AtEase Therapeutic Glasses for Anxiety, Stress, Insomnia & PTSD


What is super cool about these? NO medical risk and NO learning curve! These are simple glasses, you put them on, and voila! A filter out of extraneous views to distract and boggle you’re already too-busy brain.

There are things that you don’t want, and don’t need to see, right? 

Aren’t we in visual and sensory overload these days, most of the time?

Isn’t anxiety the new normal? Ugh! 

Five stars for helping with panic attacks – and look just like a pair of sunglasses while wearing them. 

Used by a teacher in her special education classroom – finally something that helps learning disabilities! And so simple!

Shouldn’t these be provided in schools everywhere now? 

These are helpful for post concussion sufferers. They are useful to decrease headaches and eye strain.

How Brainwave Entrainment Increases Your Brain’s Plasticity by George R. Swisher

“Neuroplasticity or Brain Plasticity is the innate ability that the human brain possesses to adapt to change and transform in the process. When we are young, our brain is incessantly collecting information and adapting fast to it. Even though brain plasticity remains very much the same, once we become adults, we are so entrenched in our beliefs and attitudes that we fail to take advantage of it.

It is those entrenched habits that prevent us from using our brain’s plasticity to its fullest potential, which is why it is of utmost importance to optimize our adult brain plasticity. One of the most effective alternatives for adults to regain their brain plasticity, is to resort to brain entrainment techniques, as suggested by top neuroscientist who study brain development.

Recent technological advances and in our understanding of our brain, have made it possible for neuroscientists to comprehend how brain plasticity works. In fact, neuroscientists have managed to see how our brain creates new DSPs (Dendrite Spiney Protuberances), every time we are exposed to something new. This is how our brain copes with all the new information it constantly receives, laying out new neural pathways and connections.

Since an adult brain has certain patterns already imprinted as to how it thinks and acts, it needs to overlay new patterns upon the existing ones. That is exactly how our brain evolves and adapts, pushing us forward as human beings. When your brain works better, you enjoy the benefits and are able to lead a better life. When your brain operates at its best, you can be more proactive, energetic and creative, and you will definitely achieve better results in life.

Brainwave Entrainment

Brainwave entrainment refers to any practice that aims to improve adult brain plasticity. It is a process that lets the brain to achieve higher levels of operation, by assimilating new patterns of thought and action into the ones already in place. It resembles the process in which a person learns a language by listening to an audio tape, where a native speaker says something, for the student to repeat those very same words as accurately as possible. With lots of practice and repetition, anyone doing the exercise will sound very much like the instructor in the tape itself.

Sounds, lights, electrical pulses and vibrations all help in brainwave entrainment, helping the brain learn how to perform at its peak.

It should come as no surprise then, that the human brain actually gets the most from the entrainment sessions. Brain plasticity can be increased thanks to brain entrainment systems, since these teach and train the brain to efficiently collect, store and retrieve information and knowledge.

Brain entrainment devices can be pricey and complicated to run if you lack technical expertise. There’s always brain entrainment audio CDs as a low-cost and easy alternative to brain entrainment devices. These really take the complexities out of brain entrainment. With them, you can train your brain to loosen up and let go stress, and to generate and maintain high energy and focus.

You can take advantage of these brainwave entrainment CDs, reprogramming your brain to operate at its peak, boosting your energy level and your creativity. Neuroscientists now understand how the brains of geniuses operate. Just imagine if you could imprint their brainwave patterns onto your brain, so that it worked in much the same way. You could save decades of brain training with Brain Evolution System and teach your brain to operate at its peak, just like zen monks and yogi masters do. Amazing!

We’ve just mentioned a few of the things that you can achieve with brain entrainment programs like BrainEv who empower you to tap into your brain’s unlimited potential. Now it’s up to you whether to do something about it (you can try BrainEv for free for 21 days) or just let your brain as it is now.

Have kids – and pets? A high-traffic household means high maintenance!

Choose your carpet cleaner from these below, and save on your time and exertion. Also, be assured that your kids can relax on your carpeting, and you can relax knowing that it is clean.

Karcher Puzzi 100 Carpet Cleaner with Floor and Upholstery tool


A few years ago my boss bought this unit, an alternative to paying for a carpet service for his office that never quite got the flooring clean.

He was very happy with the results. The unit did not take up much storage space at home. Plus, he has a dog and a white carpet in his living room, so this machine has more than paid for itself, for him.

This powered-up spray extraction unit is manufactured for easy, efficient deep cleaning.

It can be used for carpets, upholstery and textile flooring.

Exceptional at many applications, the Puzzi has added features resulting in the machine’s use being even quicker and easier.

With its powerful 14.5 psi spray rate, the water and detergent solution is applied to the area being shampooed and then picked up immediately by the vacuum nozzle.

Cleaned surfaces can be walked on almost immediately. Little residual moisture remains in the carpet fibers.

Drying up to 63% faster than those cleaned with other comparable products, this reduces your down time at home or your office.

With this spray and instant extraction method, the mix of the cleaning solution reaches deep into the carpet fabric and is simultaneously vacuumed back again.

Dirt is removed in one high-powered pass which helps carpets dry very quickly.

The rubber cushioned pump / turbine module used solution  receptacle is easily removed.

The handle on the floor nozzle is adjustable.

Bissell BG10 BigGreen Shampooer with Upholstery Tool and Hose, GoodVac Microfiber Cloth, 32 Ounce Shampoo


One user reports saving a $450.00 carpet that was scheduled for the trash. After pet stains and an accumulated smell disappeared at its first cleaning,  the customer was delighted with the results.

Mention of the Big Green Carpet Cleaner, 128 oz, Bottle, 9 to 9.8 pH as a superior and residue free result gets Five Stars. 

One user with low back problems reports “I get no back pain using this machine. It fits tall people up to 6’2”. 

That is important with a heavy machine like this one. Heavy equals power however, and the suction is excellent. Your carpet will dry within hours, instead of a whole day. 


Rug Doctor 95735 Wide Track Carpet Cleaner with Upholstery Cleaner


No Assembly Required!

This unit has a folding handle making it easier to store.

It also has a universal hand tool for shampooing upholstery.

6 inch Wheels and a wide track make this sturdy machine easy to move around.

Time to stop renting! Clean your carpets and furniture with your choice of solution and enjoy your clean and fresh home.

SEBO Duo – 9401AM Carpet Cleaner by Sebo


The immediate appeal of this unit is the smaller size and easy to use 13 pound weight.  The convenience of the dry cleaning method is a big plus too.

Using a powder to clean, and to use as a spot checker or doing the whole carpet, makes this less complicated for your busy schedules.

One user cleans her carpets every 4-6 weeks. With kids in the house, and a large dog, she still gets a clean carpet in under an hour’s time.

Two rolling brushes get deep down into the carpet pile and remove the dirt. The brushes are replaceable at the time that they start to wear.

Portable Carpet Cleaning Machine, Lightweight and Quiet Carpet Spotter and Extractor ideal for Auto Detailing, Hotels, Offices and Residential Homes 


A light weight and tanks on sturdy wheels makes this portable machine easy to use in the house and also in your car.

One spray/extractor head is clear, and the floor spray/extractor head is steel. 

Use any low foaming solution with hot water for cleaning your carpets, upholstered chairs, carpeted stairs and other small space areas that a large machine can’t get into.

Great for car seats too. 

The hose is 9 feet long, great for stairs and small spaces.

For spots and small carpeted areas, this handy machine can be pulled out to get  at stains before they become entrenched.

Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 Family Pack; Includes Mighty Pro-Deep Carpet Cleaning Machine, Upholstery Tool


Recommended for use on

  • Carpeted floors
  • Cushions
  • Curtains
  • Area rugs
  • Stairs
  • Car interiors
  • RVs
  • Corners
  • Mattresses
  • Furniture
  • Pet beds

Comes with Oxy-Steam Solution and Platinum Professional Spot and Stain Remover 

Perfect for home use and rental property use. One experienced landlord says that the side-to-side brushes are preferable to a rotating brush, to preserve carpet fiber integrity. On a pretreated carpet, this unit will clean with hot water and a little white vinegar, leaving zero residue.

Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner; Professional Grade Carpet Cleaning Machine


Made in the USA, this unit gets 4.2 Stars as a rating.

It gets raves from a pet owner who got rid of a long time smell with this unit, and saved his carpet.

A housewife loves that it is light (for its type) and easy to store. Way better than the rental inconvenience of picking one up, using it, cleaning it, and returning it.

I couldn’t even get a rental into my small car, and that for many folks, is a factor for buying one.

One Con – it doesn’t reach the edges of a room – a two inch uncleaned stripe is visible.

You can purchase upholstery attachments separately, which will do the edges, stairs, corners and your car quite nicely.

Maybe the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro (one above) for a hundred dollars more and the attachments, is a better buy. It is a slightly heavier machine and takes up a little more storage space.

Yet if you have multiple carpeted rooms, carpeted stairs, and a couple of cars to clean, Mighty Pro may be the better buy.

There was one unhappy buyer because the machine leaked after a few uses, but the return date was past.

I recommend that with all amazon purchases, use them a few times before the return date goes by.

Or, for $30 or $40, buy a protection plan on this kind of machine. 

Shark Sonic Duo Carpet and Hard Floor Cleaner (ZZ550)


No more bending and scrubbing to clean your floors! Don’t do that, it’s bad for your back!

This machine excels in cleaning hard floors. The solution and scrubbing motion does all the work. Rinse the pads right after you use them, then they can go in the washer.

The pads are good for twenty cleanings, then may need to be replaced.

The features of this handy dual purpose machine are:

  • 2 scrub uses – for Hard floors and Carpets
  • 1000 scrubs per minute
  • 7 to 1 Concentrated Non-Toxic Gentle Cleaning Solutions – safe for family & pets
  • Hard Floor Solution, Carpet Solution, Spot Remover and Polish Solution are included
  • Microfiber Washable Pads specialized for Hard Floor and Carpet Cleaning
  • AirGlide Maneuverability, Swivel Steering and Head Lights for easy cleaning

Get the odors and allergens off all your floors!

This light weight easy to maneuver machine is only 18 pounds.

2 and 3 year protection plans are available for $33.99 and $44.99.

At the time of this writing, a refurbished machine offer showed for $139.00.

Hoover Power Scrub + Spot Cleaner Bundle


The vendor states “The only spot cleaner with Self-Clean Technology flushes the hose clean after each use to help prevent odors and bacteria growth, providing a spotless clean inside and out. “

That’s pretty cool, don’t you think?

The portable part of this machine duo is useful for spot cleaning, stairs, upholstery and car seats.

The light weight (under nineteen pounds) upright machine has a deep cleaning penetration to get all sides of your carpet fibers.

Note is made of the design, which allows every collection part to be removed and cleaned out easily.

Use your own solution if you prefer, or just hot water. Your carpets will be beautifully cleaned.

With a 4.8 Star rating, this gets a thumbs up for customer service as well.

BISSELL Turboclean Powerbrush Pet Upright Carpet Cleaner Machine and Carpet Shampooer, 2085


This small,  light weight (12 pounds) and popular carpet cleaner with the Powerful Bissell oxy-based Formula is purported to remove stains like coffee, wine, grape juice, and pet stains.


What Are The Best Cleaning Solutions For Carpet Cleaners?

Everyone has their own sense of smell, ideas about what is cleanest, and wants the best for their home.

I remember when before my boss bought the Karcher Puzzi, the first cleaner on this page, he hired a company who prepped the carpet with a smelly solution that was so bad my eyes watered and stung, and I had to prop open the front door. That didn’t even work and I locked up and went home. 

Later when my boss did the carpet cleaning himself, he used hot water and vinegar to prevent the residue that collects dirt onto a clean carpet.

So really what is the best? There are many to choose from. There are stain removers and odor removers.

Most brands offer at least a sample of their own solution with a purchase. 

Here are a few for you to view. 

NaturOli Extreme 18X Soap Nuts/Soap Berry Liquid Organic Laundry Soap, (3 Pack) Natural HE Detergent & All-Purpose Cleaner. Super-Concentrated, Sulfate-Free. Unscented.


If you choose to go this natural, you can add your favorite scents each time you clean, with essential oils. 

Cliganic USDA Organic Aromatherapy Essential Oils Set (8 Pack), 100% Pure Natural


Labeling of essential oils is not standardized, so you may want to opt for the USDA Organic, to get the best quality.

Harvard Chemical 510 Pet Stainoff Enzymatic Pet Stain and Odor Remover, Bubblegum Odor, 1 Gallon Bottle, Milky White (Case of 4)


Whoa! Bubble Gum odor! Just so you know…

1 Each- 128 oz. Bottle- Soap Free PROCYON Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner Concentrate. Will clean approximately 10,000 sq. ft. per each unit.


Hoover Oxy Deep Cleaning Carpet Shampoo, Concentrated Machine Cleaner Solution, 50oz Formula, AH30950, White


Chemical Guys CWS_103 Fabric Clean Carpet and Upholstery Shampoo and Odor Eliminator (1 Gal)


Aunt Fannies Vinegar Wash Floor Cleaner Lime Mint, 32 Ounce


If you are going to buy the dual carpet and hard floor cleaner, or if the fresh scent in this product will appeal to you, here is an almost natural floor cleaning solution. 

If you are a new customer for the best home carpet cleaning machines, here is some information:

Comparing Carpet Cleaning Machines by Felix Goh

Keeping your home carpet clean and hygienic is one of your responsibilities especially if you have young children at home. It is something you must not neglect regardless of how tough it is to care for your carpets. Nevertheless, there are options that can help you lighten the difficulty of this task. Getting a carpet cleaning machine for your home will guarantee you an easier time cleaning those carpets. With such a broad variety of cleaning machines and equipments available out there, you will have to decide what kind of cleaning you are doing most of the time, as well as the budget you set for purchasing the machine. If you are doing more of everyday cleaning, a vacuum will be ideal as it is one of the more reasonably priced tools. When it comes to heavier and deeper cleaning, you can either hire professional services or rent cleaning machines depending on your budget. For those that have higher budget and larger storage space at home, you may even consider buying the professional cleaning machine to save the trouble of renting.

There are many models of carpet cleaning machines. Before you decide which one to get, you should take a look at the various types to have a better idea of what you really need for your home carpet. Vacuum cleaners will be the most common and easiest way when it comes to carpet cleaning. Because it is so common, the prices of such equipments are inexpensive. The two main designs of a vacuum cleaner are the standard upright and the portable canister. Upright vacuums move over the carpet smoothly to remove dust and dirt while the canister vacuums allow you to vacuum other furniture such as your couch or mattresses. If you go for basic maintenance, vacuum cleaners would be the preferred choice.

Another machine for carpet cleaning is known as the carpet shampooers. They are quite similar to vacuum cleaners apart from the tank that is attached to it. This tank contains the shampoo solution which is meant for deep cleaning such as removing stains or soiling. Carpet shampooer machines are often used by professionals or rental agencies and are unlikely to be bought for home use as shampooing of carpets are not always necessary. If your carpets are prone to spills and soiling, there are other models for home use available. One of them will be the steam carpet cleaning machine. This machine is comparable with the carpet shampooers except that they are much cheaper in price. Steam cleaners use a liquid cleaning solution combined with hot water and it is turned into steam while on the carpet. Rotating brushes and an extractor can be found in the machine. The brushes remove the dirty particles while the extractor is used for sucking up the filthy residue. In addition, a steam cleaner comes with a heater element that is required to dry the carpet after the stains have been cleared.

Besides the above cleaning machines, there is also the dry carpet cleaning machine. It is one of the most time consuming way to use it for carpet cleaning. This is because such machines require a lot of work and are therefore not recommended by many. The carpet needs to be vacuumed first, followed by pre-cleaning with a stain remover and then with the dry carpet cleaner. After brushing the area with the dry carpet cleaner, you will have to vacuum the area again to remove the remaining dirt. As compared to the other machines, it is also considered relatively expensive and not the ideal choice for cleaning carpets.

Regardless of the size of your carpet area, it is a matter of time that you have to invest in one of those carpet cleaning machines. While deciding which one to get, you have to consider the features of your home carpet as well as the functions of the various cleaning machines.

Natural Remedies For Pet Urine Stains by L. D. Harris

“If you are a pet owner, chances are that your cat or dog has had at least one accident. Urine, feces and vomit stains are par for the course if you are the owner of an untrained puppy or kitten. There are many ways to prevent pet stains and odor and the wise pet owner will search out information on good house-breaking and litter-training techniques. The diet and health of your cat or dog are also a strong part of the equation. Responsible pet owners are those who are willing to visit and consult with a veterinarian on a regular basis to ensure they are taking the necessary steps to maintain the health of their pets.

When accidents happen, it is important to remove as much of the solid matter as possible. A large metal spatula without holes set aside for only this purpose is an invaluable and inexpensive removal tool. Make sure to label the spatula for pet use only so that it doesn’t find itself in the general population of your kitchen utensils! For vomit and feces, the spatula is effective in scraping the solid matter off in an efficient way. Make sure to have a plastic garbage bag handy to dump the mess into. This method works well even for watery messes and can prevent a lot of matter from soaking into carpeting or rugs.

The next step in pet stain removal is to try to absorb or suction up the liquid matter left over from messier feces or vomit and from urination accidents. To effectively absorb liquid from carpeting or rugs, the best method is to use an old towel or several thicknesses of paper toweling or toilet paper. Layering a plastic bag over the towels or toilet paper protects your hand or foot from becoming soiled when pressing the area to wick up the liquid. It is recommended that fresh towels or toilet paper be applied again and pressed into the spot until the majority of the liquid has been absorbed. The other method of liquid removal is to literally suck it up with a wet-dry vacuum cleaner or a carpet extractor/carpet cleaner.

When as much solid and liquid matter as possible has been removed, the process of cleaning and deodorizing the pet stain can begin. There are many home remedies touted by people and some work better than others. Baking soda is useful to some extent, but is easily overpowered by most pet stains and odors. The white residue left behind can be permanent and harder itself to remove, especially on colored carpeting and rugs. Vinegar is a known deodorizer as well, but the acidic nature of it can intensify when it mixes with urine stains, making the original smell even worse. Other home concoctions can include things like hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and bleach which wreak havoc on carpeting and can leave many surfaces discolored and faded. Some of these combination’s are also toxic and can be dangerous to both people and pets if used indiscriminately.

The best natural remedy for pet stains and spots are enzymes that are applied to the stain and allowed to digest the organic material that is the result of cat or dog accidents. These can take up to 24 hours to work and may need to be reapplied, but the results are worth it. The enzyme based products work by actually removing the root of the problem rather than just masking over it. Enzyme products are also very safe for humans and pets and are recommended in homes with children. The scent of enzyme products are also more desirable than other natural remedies and don’t have the chemical smell that commercial solutions posses.

Pet stains [http://www.petstainoff.com] can be difficult to remove. Some natural remedies work well, others don’t. For more information about pet urine stains [http://www.petstainoff.com] please visit the Petstainoff Website.”

In The Early Planning Stages?

Are you in the early planning stage for an outdoor entertainment area? The following article may give you some help in designing your space, and purchasing the ideal products for your and your family’s use. (Emphases mine).

Creating an Outdoor Entertainment Area for Your House by Shaz Mikenzy

“Nowadays, an outdoor entertainment area such as a deck, gazebo, terrace or patio has become one of the things that many homeowners make sure that they have because of the countless benefits that it offers. An outdoor entertainment area is generally described as an outdoor space or an outdoor extension of the floor area of a house which is intended to be used as an additional living space. Here are some of the benefits that outdoor entertainment spaces offer.

1. They provide an area where you can hang out with your family and friends on both sunny days and not-so-sunny days, as they allow you to enjoy the feeling of being outdoors without being subjected to any of the harsh weather elements such as extreme heat and rain.

2. Outdoor entertainment areas can also be used for a wide variety of purposes. They can be used as a place where you can: relax after a stressful day at work; entertain friends and family; and have formal and informal dinners. You can also use them for parties and other special events as they outdoor entertainment spaces can usually easily be decorated.

3. If you have young children, you can also set up their swing or slide sets in your patio or gazebo. Your kids would surely enjoy playing with their toys outdoors without you having to worry about them getting burnt by the harmful rays of the sun or being drenched in the rain.

4. You can also use your outdoor entertainment area as a place where you can do your yoga and meditation. You can have it decorated with candles, mats and other yoga equipment and you would have a yoga studio right in your own backyard.

5. They also serve as a wonderful accent to your outdoor area. For instance, if you have a large garden or backyard, having a gazebo or deck could automatically enhance its appearance and ambiance, especially if you would be choosing furniture that would complement or accentuate the existing style of your home.

These are just some of the advantages of having an outdoor entertainment space can offer. It is important, however, that if you are planning to set up one in your home, you would be making sure that you have done your research and shopping around. The reason for this is because of the wide array of choices you have for building an outdoor entertainment space, you might be choosing some which might not be the best for you and your needs. Here are a couple of tips that may be able to help you out.

1. Make sure to conduct your research on which materials would be best for your outdoor living space. There are a lot of material options which are available in the market today and you need to be careful in choosing which ones you would be using. Some of the most advisable pieces to use would be rust-resistant tables and chairs, mildew-resistant cushions and other durable furniture pieces that are not only stylish but are also able to withstand sun, rain and other harsh outdoor elements. Although such pieces would be on the more expensive side, they are good investments that would allow you to enjoy your outdoor entertainment space for many years.

2. You could also consider having your patio or deck screened-in, especially if you have a bug problem to make sure that hanging out in your outdoor living space would be comfortable.

3. If you intend to use your outdoor entertainment area for entertaining people during parties and other gatherings, it would be advisable to set it up near the part of your house where you keep food and beverages. You could also set up a small kitchen or pantry on your deck or patio to make it even easier and more convenient to serve food and drinks during special events when you have guests over. Aside from this, you can also have a restroom built so that your guests would not have to go inside your house anymore to go to the restroom if they need to.

4. Aside from decorating the outdoor entertainment space you have with furnishings that complement your style, you can also consider making your garden or yard more aesthetically pleasing. By planting some fruit trees and flowering plants, you would be able to create shade and a beautiful view for you, your family and your guests to enjoy.

Vehicle Protection With a Canopy Tent! by Christian C. Petcu

As the winter sets in you may notice your vehicles are taking plenty of abuse from the stronger elements like the rain and snow. You may even own vehicles that are only used in particular seasons such as camper vans, boats or motor bikes. In the off seasons it is generally a good idea to keep such vehicles sheltered and protected and this can be a small problem for those who do not own a garage or a sheltered parking area. Damage can be caused to these vehicles when left outside, especially for extended periods of time. Water damage, leaking, rust, paint damage and general deterioration inside and outside of the vehicles can easily occur in situations like this. Where the use of a garage is not available a good quality canopy tent can be very effective and really increase the life span of ones vehicle.

One of the many uses for canopy tents is that of portable or temporary garages and car ports. They are very useful for shelter in many situations but particularly vehicles as they are an affordable and convenient option in these cases. They come in a variety of different sizes, colors and styles to suit your vehicle size and the layout and design of your house. A good quality canopy tent will be made with a durable frame sometimes aluminum for lighter and easier portability and heavy duty polyethylene canopies. These frames are treated for rust and the canopies are generally fire retardant and waterproof. The canopies can also come with attachable side walls for extra shelter. One can leave just the canopy top for shelter or for more shelter and protection side walls can be added for a complete enclosure. With vehicles dimensions and personal preferences widely differing, a canopy tent can be very flexible, versatile and multifunctional and suit a wide range of requirements.

One weakness of a canopy tent is that it can be affected by high winds. Depending on the strength of the wind proper anchoring should be provided. There are generally footplates attached to these canopies so they can be securely anchored to the ground. Many users utilize extra anchoring like weighted bags. In extremely high winds canopies should be taken down as they can be severely damaged. Generally users like to choose a location that is not overly exposed to the wind when constructing there canopies in order to avoid this problem.
