 Purelight UV Sterilizing Wand
Purelight UV Sterilizing Wand
Our cordless wand utilizes UV light purification to kill viruses, bacteria, mold, dust mites and bed bugs, and to neutralize odors even in hard to reach places. Simply wave the easy-to-use wand over mattresses, baby bottles, kitchen utensils (including cutting boards and knives) and even toys. No chemicals, no residue, no waiting period. Testing shows a 99.9 percent kill rate of viruses, bacteria, dust mites and bed bugs. Ideal for those who have allergies or asthma. 20"L; 1 lb. AC adapter/charger included. South Korea.
 

Since carpet is deeper than the surface of a mattress, how do you use it for 99% efficacy for carpet against dust mites?

Does it "bleach" the carpet (washout the colors)?

Expert Answer
EXPERT ANSWER
With general use, following the product guidelines, the UV light waves generated by either of these products will not promote fading of textiles.... it is designed to be gemicidal and it deacitivates the DNA of dust mites, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease. Some important facts to note:To be killed by UVC, germs must be irradiated directly; the light's effectiveness to kill these pathogens dimishes over distance, and the light is also best held at a perpendicular angle to the surface being disinfected for maximum exposure to the surface.. It is possible to use this product on carpet, but the exposure time needed will depend upon the depth and texture of the pile. A more effective UV product for carpet or highly textured surfaces could be our Dust Mite Vacuum or our Air Sanitizer and Cordless Vacuum, both of which actually bring the pathogens from the carpet in order to expose them to the light.

 Rattan Sliding Screen
Rattan Sliding Screen

Are any pictures available that show the top of the sliding panels? Also, how far do the panels/hardware protrude from the wall?

I want to make sure the handle of the sliding glass door doesn't push out the panels and look tacky.
Thank you!
Staff Answer
STAFF ANSWER
Expert Answer
EXPERT ANSWER
The panels protrude about 3.5" from the wall. The panels themselves overlap, so it may be possible to position the panels so that the furthest out from the wall is over the hardware for the door, thus allowing for clearance of the door handle.

The rubber wisdom mat measures 68"Length x 24"Width x 1/8"Depth. If you are looking for a thicker fitness mat, I recommend item # 95-1397, the Cushionmax Fitness Mat that measures 68"Length x 24"Width x 3/8"Depth.

How should I wash/prep the mat surface before use?

When I received this mat, there were special instructions on the packing slip for initial washing. I lost the packing slip, and there are no such instructions on the packaging. I'd like to start using this mat now. (Essential Mat). Could you send the instructions? Thank you!

EXPERT ANSWER
The Yoga Essential mat can be spot cleaned with GAIAM’s Mat Cleaner or damp cloth with cold water and mild detergent. Dry flat. The mat may fade and become brittle and unusable if exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. We recommend storing your mat in a mat bag when not in use.

 Ultra Oxygenics Hand-Held Showerhead
Ultra Oxygenics Hand-Held Showerhead
Ideal for homes with low water pressure, or high energy or water costs, the patented technology inside our Ultra Oxygenics Showerhead pressurizes water to create a forcefully satisfying flow that belies the fact that up to 70% less water is being used -- just 2 gpm. To make your shower even better, internal mechanisms enrich shower water with up to 60 more oxygen to deep-clean skin, help fight free-radicals and improve circulation. China.Note: the manufacturer labels all 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 gpm showerheads as 2.5 gpm.
 

Why are the hand-held shower wands marked as 2.5 if they are low flow?

Is there a price difference between the 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 low flow models?
Staff Answer
STAFF ANSWER
Expert Answer
EXPERT ANSWER
Government standards specify that all showerheads must be a maximum of 2.5 GPM to be considered low flow. This unit is labeled 2.5 GPM by the manufacturer, but the actual flow may be as low as 1.5, depending upon the pressure of the home's water system. This unit is not available with other flow rates.
