Searching for gift for the woman who has everything? Look no further.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked for a favorite bag or wallet in my closet, only to find it cracked and falling apart. Sometimes I’ll find a pair of shoes covered in mildew. More often, it ends up in the trash bin.
The humidity level in Metro Manila today is pretty high.
What does this mean? In the house, high levels of humidity can cause an increase in mold, bacteria, viruses, fungi and dust mites. This can result in respiratory ailments and allergies, plus damage to household appliances, furniture, floors, paintings, carpets and yes, your bags.
High levels of humidity also affect the body’s ability to cool itself and lead to a heat stroke. People with asthma and heart problems are also at risk when humidity levels are high.
When it’s humid, it means there’s a lot of water or water vapor in the air. To counteract the effects in the house or office, you can use a dehumidifier, which reduces the level of humidity in the air.
I use to buy all these little disposable plastic dehumidifiers from the hardware store. These things don’t last and only work for small spaces. They’re also expensive in the long run.
I’ve been looking around for a more effective way to protect my home and stuff.
Finally I found the solution through the Myair Dehumidifier from Air and Odor Management Philippines.
Here’s how it works:
1) I put it in my stockroom which has a lot of stuff I forget about.
2) I fix the setting to AUTO. As you can see the current room humidity is at 71—very high (ideal is 40).
When it rains, more water stays in the air, which cause more damage to your things.
3) Overnight or many hours later, I check and see the tank is full.
What I love about this humidifier is its automatic switch-off systems. I set the timer to AUTO as it collects water from the air. Once the receptacle is filled, it shuts down.
You can also use the timer so the unit runs for 6-10 hours. Once the humidity level is controlled, the unit will automatically turn off.
4) I turn the unit around (it has wheels)
5) I pull out the receptacle, which is filled with water.
5) So heavy. I carry this to the bathroom and empty it into the sink. See how much water was collected from my 20 square-meter stock room.
The first time I used it, I was simply amazed and relieved that the days of rotting leather are gone.
Considering the amount of money we spend on shoes and bags, the long-term price of Myair Dehumidifiers is worth it, starting at at P50,000, depending on your requirements.
