Remember a couple of weeks ago when I told you about the new Fellowes AeraMax™ DX-55 Air Purifier I was lucky wnough to try out and review? Well I'm back today to tell you how it's doing in our home so far and share a little DIY throat soother too! First, the air purifier:
Like we talked about last time I had no idea that cold and flu germs could live in the air in my home for 24 hours or that the air inside could be 5 times as polluted as the air outside-yuck! After learning that I couldn't wait to get my Fellowes AeraMax™ DX55 Air Purifier out of the box! When I unpacked it I was surprised how small it was!
Since we have an open concept living area and we spend most of our time there as a family I figured the living room was the best place to set it up. Set up was easy, just unwrapping the filter and replacing it, then plugging it in and turning it on! It has an automatic setting that monitors the air quality and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep your air purified, which is great, so I've just been using that setting so I don't have to bother adjusting it.
So far I'm loving it and highly recommend it! I love that it's small and discreet so it blends in, even in the middle of my living room! It's also super quiet and unobtrusive when it runs in contrast with other air purifiers we've tried. And, whether its happenstance or the air purifier I can attest that no one in the house has been sick since we started using it!
In case you haven't been as lucky and are feeling under the weather I thought I'd share a little recipe I've tried recently to help soothe sore throats, you know I always love a good natural DIY remedy!
5 quarter inch slices of ginger
half an apple, sliced
1 cinnamon stick
2 teaspoons sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
In a small saucepan add two cups of water, ginger, apple, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer for 15 minutes. Place 2 teaspoons of sugar into mug and pour in tea, stir. Add lemon juice and enjoy!
Hopefully you won't need any throat soothers but just in case I thought I'd share!
