MAKING WET/DRY VACUUM CLEAN UP A BREEZE-WITHOUT THE BREEZE!
STOPS DIRTY AIR – The strong gust of wind exiting a wet-dry vacuum normally causes small particles (which you’re trying to clean up) to become airborne which will either resettle onto the just-vacuumed surface you spent time cleaning or breathed in by anyone in the vicinity. The VacuVortex attaches to your wet-dry vacuum cleaner’s blower port to attenuate the exhaust coming out.
MUFFLES – Installing a VacuVortex will reduce the loud roar of a wet-dry vacuum, decreasing noise by a few decibels.
SAVES TIME AND INCREASES EFFICIENCY – VacuVorteX™ increases the efficiency of your wet/dry vacuum, and the attenuated exhaust allows for easy, one-pass clean-up. This can save you hours in clean-up time!
HOW TO USE
Remove the VacuVorteX™ from the paper/plastic packing
Simply attach the VacuVorteX™ to the exhaust from the port of your Wet/Dry Vacuum and its ready to use.
GET MORE OUT OF YOUR BATHROOM BY UPGRADING YOUR TOWEL BAR TO A HEAT TOWEL RACK!
Few things feel as luxurious as a warm towel waiting for you after a relaxing shower. While installing something with an electrical component is not usually in my DIY recommendations…these heated towel racks from Amba have the option to plug into a wall outlet, keeping them DIY friendly.
STYLISH AND AFFORDABLE: with over 75 models and special orders, these heated towel racks can suit any type of décor and any size space. Plus pricing starts at approximately $238!
INCREASED WELLNESS: the heated towel racks contribute to a reduction of mildew for better indoor air quality and reduces the need to launder towels as often.
COMFORT AND MULTIUSE: these racks gently warms not only towels but also bathrobes, blankets, and even pajamas. They are a wonderful option for drying delicate garments that can’t be tumble dried
HIGH QUALITY AND ENERGY EFFICIENT: Amba heated towel racks are made from 304-grade stainless steel which is sustainable, durable, and 100% recyclable. These towel racks consumes approximately the same amount of electricity as a few light bulbs, and towels require less laundering, thus saving on water and electricity!
The AMBA Towel Racks are great for use in multiple applications around the home including bathrooms, laundry rooms, mudrooms, and pool side. Their Jeeves Wet-Rated Kit is an optional UL-certified installation upgrade offering – making it safe to mount heated towel racks in shower alcoves and wet rooms.
