Honeywell AirGenius Awards and HEPA Air Purifier #Giveaway

July 15, 2014

We just moved into a new house! Yay! Also means we had to deal with the leftover smell from a hot tub in one of the rooms and fresh paint smells in almost every other room. Luckily, there weren’t any bad pet odors or anything in our new house. Honeywell sent me a True Compact Air Purifier to review and share with you through a giveaway! Our Honeywell Compact Air Purifier is a quiet little tower that actually seemed to help the air smell better!

Honeywell Air Purifier Works

Honeywell Air Purifier

Meant for rooms 75 sq ft or smaller (we used it in slightly bigger rooms anyways), the Honeywell Compact Tower Air Purifier can remove up to 99.9% of allergens and reduce odors. This means things like pet odors, smoke, dust and mold. We don’t smoke and there isn’t any mold in the house (that we know of!), so we couldn’t test that. The previous owner’s did have a hot tub in one room that left behind that weird wet smell, so we’ve had the purifier running in the ex-hot-tub-room and it’s definitely gotten better! I don’t notice a weird wet smell out there anymore.

AirGenius Awards

Honeywell also puts on the AirGenius Awards, which identified the cities with the cleanest air, surprisingly San Francisco is #1! They also found that many people don’t even think about the air they breathe. The AirGenius Awards encourages people to use Air Cleaners on an ongoing basis to help keep the air the breathe cleaner, especially important for those with allergies and asthma. Help clear away the bad things in your air, whether you can see and smell them or not!

    Ok, let me put it like this…..i have a 2 year toddler and a 2 year old St Bernard pup. Well, more often then i care for, my toddler sneaks “her” St Bernard, snacks, anything from green beans at the dinner table to pieces of baby carrots during lunch (to the occasional plastic toy, or flip flop). This is what i’ve woken up to. Even with a closed bedroom door, i was woken up by an absolute horrific smell!! Walking into my kitchen, trying to figure out what that smell was and where it was coming from. Imagine my horror, when i turned on my kitchen lights and realized that this over 200lb pup, had the explosive super squirts, from the beginning of my sink all the way to the back door. it’s about an eight foot stretch. Thank god for tile! This literally looked like brown water, but i promise it didn’t smell like it! And at his size, you can imagine how much there was.

    By the way, i have no problem admitting that my husband didn’t get to sleep through this 😉
    and sorry for the icky story, but hey, you asked lol.

  112. The worst smell I have to deal with right now is dirty diapers. Blech!
