    Air Purifier for Allergies and Asthma Relief – Is it Effective?

    I’ve had allergies from cats, dust, and pollen ever since I can remember. I’m sick of the never-ending runny nose, sneezing, cough, itchy throat, etc. What sucks is we have a cat at home, whom we LOVE so so much.

    Air Humidifier vs Air Purifier – Which one should you get?

    I’ve been suffering from allergic rhinitis ever since. So my boyfriend advised me to purchase an air humidifier vs air purifier. So off I went to the mall to get one. Until the sales lady told me, “They’re different products mam. Each have different functions”.   I initially thought it’s an all-in-one product. Like it’s both a humidifier and purifier. I was wrong. Benefits of owning an Air Purifier/Air Humidifier Both products are great for people with sinus and respiratory issues, however, the way they offer relief is different.
