As an asthmatic, I try my best to keep the house free of dust. No matter how hard I try though, dust is everywhere. My asthma is not easily triggered by dust though, but there are days when I my lungs go haywire and I’m stuck with my nebulizer for days.
When I found out that Ethan was exhibiting signs of skin asthma, his pediatrician set my expectations that there is a likely chance that he will have asthma, too. I was so bummed, because I knew he got it from me. So now I need to keep the house extra free from dust, for myself and for Ethan.
One of the most annoying things around the house that easily attracts dust is the electric fan. You know what I mean – when the blades and the back frame of the fan are full of dust and you can barely feel any air at all. I admit that I sometimes, or rather often, I put off cleaning the fan – because I hate it. You have to disassemble the frame, clean everything and put it all together again. It not the most fun chore in the world.
While I was at Blogapalooza 2014, a particular booth caught my attention because of this contraption.
