New Product Review: TOPPIN HEPA Comfy Air C2 (and a Discount Code!)

Well, it’s springtime here in Central Florida once more! (Please don’t hate us – we can’t help our weather and the fact that anything that CAN bloom is already starting to.) And along with that, something else we have a hard time helping is our allergies. *sneeze*

The oak blossoms are the worst for us here. All four of us are allergic, and sometimes our reactions are triggered by something as small as a quick ride in the car. No matter what, we always try our hardest to rush inside very quickly, hoping to escape “the blossom”. Yes, we all take regular vitamins and allergy medicines, and keep the house dusted and vacuumed – the normal things. But still we struggled.

So when Osmond from Toppin asked if I would be interested checking out one of their air purifiers, I was intrigued. Why not, right? Maybe it would be helpful!

Toppin’s Comfy Air C2 True HEPA Air Purifier arrived very well-packaged, and it literally took less than five minutes to set up and get going – anyone could do it. Points for sturdy simplicity, for sure. And check out the filter it boasts!

They’re not messing around! The True HEPA is designed to remove up to 99.97% of all particles (as small as 0.3 microns in diameter!) when the nylon pre-filter and activated carbon layer filter out smoke and odors.

The unit itself is about the size of a mini tower fan, so super easy to place anywhere around your home where you may need a bit of air quality control. It runs at an extremely low noise level, and the easy-to-use LCD panel that controls the unit will keep you abreast of the filter status, allow you to create a timer, and also adjust the fan level to different settings.

Here are four ways to take your cooking up a notch, for when you really need to wow someone!

Use High-Quality Meat

If you’re making a dish where the meat is the centrepiece, the standard of the meat is what will really make or break it. Source and cuts of meat can vary widely in quality. Thus, ensuring you choose a cut that is of a premium grade is a sure-fire way to ensure your meal will really stand out. Choosing the right type of meat is also of great importance. Chicken and beef are popular and readily available, but are also highly common. Instead, you may consider choosing a more unconventional meat to truly individualise your meal, such as a delectable bone in tenderloin of pork.

Get a Vacuum/Rent a Carpet Cleaner

One of the easiest ways you can keep your car clean is to get a portable, battery-operated vacuum. You can use the vacuum to clean the seats, floorboards, pedals, upholstery, and dashboard. It can also help to suck out debris from crevices and small cracks such as your car door’s pockets and panels, as well as your dash. When it comes to giving your vehicle a deep clean though, you should rent a carpet cleaning machine. It can help to pull dirt that has settled deep into the fibers of your carpet and seats. By using a carpet cleaning machine, it will spray upholstery and carpet in your vehicle with a solution which helps to dislodge grime.

Homemade Solution For Stains

One of the worst things you can do as a passenger besides leaving a cigarette unattended is to stain a driver’s passenger seats. This is especially the case if they drive a brand new Ford F150 in Madison, WI that they just bought. We all have that one friend who we have to be extra vigilant around when it comes to driving with them in the passenger seat. This is especially the case if you have children who tend to treat your car’s interior like an art pad.

  • The move will be finished quicker.  Less boxing and unboxing for you to do.
  • Less likely to break or damage the stuff you want to keep as you won’t be under as much time or space pressure.

If you have a pond in your garden, you will know that it already has multiple benefits. From attracting wildlife to boosting the aesthetic of your outdoor space, ponds are a very popular addition.

Improved Water Quality

Did you know that installing a fountain can actually increase the quality of the water in your pond? If that water in your pond is still, micro-organisms can grow, causing the water to become stagnant. This can lead to a whole host of issues such as unwanted insects, bad odors, or water contamination. If you have fish or plants in your pond, stagnant water can have a negative effect on them, as well as being unpleasant to look at. Fountains and filters from water-garden.co.uk can help to keep the water in your pond moving, therefore decreasing the risk of it becoming stagnant and full of bad bacteria. 

Increased Value

There are many ways to increase the value of your home, so if you are considering selling, don’t forget about your garden. Adding a fountain can help to boost your property’s value by boosting the aesthetic appeal of your backyard. Water is a huge key to adding value, with fountains, ponds, and other water features being popular additions. Water can even help to make your backyard look larger, as the surface is reflective. The many different types of fountains also mean that you can choose one that is perfect for your pond, whether this includes light features or floating fountains for larger ponds.
