  1. How your vacuum cleaner can help you fight back against inflation

    Comments Off on How your vacuum cleaner can help you fight back against inflation

    Halo Capsule cordless vacuum in kitchen saving energy

    It’s all over the news everyday: inflation and the cost-of-living crisis, with energy costs being one of the biggest drivers of these increases.  We don’t want to go on about this too, there’s enough in the media and it doesn’t make for the most cheerful outlook, but we wanted to highlight one way in which you might be able to save a few pennies or even pounds by a simple switch at home.

    Half the running cost of corded

    If you’ve been waiting to take the move to cordless, there’s never been a better time.  It is significantly more energy efficient to use a cordless like Halo Capsule than using a corded vacuum.  Here’s a stat that might surprise you: Halo Capsule cordless vacuum cleaner will cost half the money and electricity to use than your typical corded vacuum.

    That can add up to a not-to-be-sniffed-at saving throughout the year.  For example, if you, say, vacuum your home for half an hour a day, you would save £20 a year (at current energy prices July 2022*) using Halo vs a corded.  It’s not going to buy you that house in the south of France but, as a well-known supermarket says: every little helps.  And this can really add up over years of use.

    Half the energy, all the power

    But that’s because cordless aren’t as powerful as corded some might think…  And here’s the clincher.  That might be true of many cordless, but not Halo Capsule.

    Halo Capsule is independently verified to have ALL the power of a cordless – but for half the energy!  How?  Wizardry. Almost.  Our super light-weight design (patented carbon fibre construction) means we can pack more powerful motors in to deliver the power you really need.  Those motors are optimised for extreme high efficiency to make sure that not one Watt of energy from Capsule’s 32V battery pack is wasted.  It’s why Good Housekeeping scored Halo 100% in their pick-up tests.

    Half the electricity. Half the running cost. Same exceptional performance.

    Halo Capsule won’t take any more electricity than it needs even when left on charge too. It’s a clever little thing, it will simply stop when it is full…so you needn’t worry about whether it is plugged in or not. So easy.

    And of course, all the convenience, freedom, and huge capacity of a Halo Capsule cordless is also a bonus!

    With prices starting at £199.99, in itself, an inflation-busting low price (lowest ever), now really is the time to consider going cordless. Halo Capsule cordless.

  2. Curing Your Hay Fever Starts With Housework

    Comments Off on Curing Your Hay Fever Starts With Housework

    If you’re unfortunate enough to suffer from Hay Fever in the summer months, you’re not alone. One in five people experience symptoms at some point in their lives, and unfortunately, they can really take a toll on your summer.

    This year seems particularly bad for Hay Fever sufferers, with social media seemingly ablaze with stories and myths on how to alleviate your symptoms. Advice is often to stay inside more to help alleviate symptoms, but after recent events, who can blame us for not wanting this to be our only option?

    What if we told you that instead of slamming your windows shut, sticking garlic up your nose (a trending TikTok remedy we wouldn’t recommend) or trying not to forget to retake your antihistamine tablets again, simply getting your vacuuming technique right and the right vacuum for the job could significantly help?

    Pollen and allergens will always find a way into your home. They’ll blow in through open windows or your doors if you leave them open to let some air in. Unfortunately for those with Hay Fever allergies, they can then settle on anything you see and touch every day, impossible to spot with the naked eye.

    What’s worse is that typical bagless vacuums will release and redistribute those allergens back into the air as you clean. In fact, our research shows that bagless vacuums release up to 10 times more allergens and pollen back into the air than systems that use dust bags do. Even if you’re staying on top of your vacuuming, you could just be making the problem worse.


    So what’s the best way to clean your home to get rid of pollen and allergens? 

    Here’s our guide: 

    • Make sure you’re vacuuming correctly.

      This one sounds obvious; how could you possibly vacuum incorrectly? Isn’t it just a case of pushing the vacuum around? Well, no. It makes a huge difference when you know how to best get all those allergens out of your carpets or off your hard floors.

      When vacuuming, we recommend a zig-zag pattern; start on one side of the room by pushing forward it a straight line, then as you pull back, move slightly to one side until you end up one vacuum head width across from where you started. Repeat until the whole floor area is covered, with every area being covered twice.
    • Don’t forget your soft furnishings.

      It’s easy to simply vacuum your floor and call it a day. But it’s vital that you vacuum your sofa, chairs, and anywhere else where pollen and allergens can hide. You can switch out your vacuum attachment to one that is especially gently on upholstery, so you don’t risk damaging your furniture.

      Remember to regularly clean under and around your sofa too, and all around those tricky corners of the room. We recommend using a crevice attachment here to ensure you’re really getting into those hard to reach areas. You can also carefully vacuum curtains and blinds to ensure that they aren’t trapping any pollen inside. This is especially important if you have curtains covering any patio doors, as this is where it’s most likely you’ll find pollen in the summer months. You can use the upholstery attachment or a soft dusting brush to achieve the best results.
    • Vacuum surfaces that you’d usually dust.

      Most people keep their vacuums for the floor and use a duster to clean surfaces, but this isn’t always the best way to get rid of any dust and allergens.
      Use the specialist tools and brushes that come with your vacuum to collect all the dust and allergens lying on surfaces around the house. Once you’ve got the majority of it with your vacuum, you can use a damp cloth or a microfibre duster to get the rest. A damp cloth does a much better job of capturing the dust instead of spreading it around. 
    • Use the right vacuum for the job

      There are many vacuums to choose from, but bagged systems are the best for those who suffer from allergies like Hay Fever. Bagless systems release 10x more dust and pollen into the air while cleaning, and a lot more when emptying. Using bags is a much cleaner and more efficient method of emptying your vacuum, as there is no chance of you simply releasing dust and allergens back into the air.

    Hay Fever will always cause some suffering in the summer months when you’re out and about, but it doesn’t have to follow you into your home, too.

    Fortunately, with these tips and with the right vacuum, you can suppress your symptoms and make sure that, inside at least, you can still enjoy your summer.
