Silent, Unobtrusive and Excellent,
This review is from: Honeywell Vita Air 2-In-1 Cleaner and Humidifier (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used to have a very dusty home office. I was constantly having to go over my desk and shelves with cloths to remove layers of household dust. It was a real bother. Having run the Vita for a few weeks now, I'm noticing a definite lack of new dust being deposited. I run it on maximum power under my desk, and it's completely inaudible above the sound of my PC. I'd say it was very quiet indeed. It just sits there pulling dusty air in at the top and blowing out clean air at the front. I don't really have a problem with low humidity, so I don't use the humidifier function, but the water reservoir (which is extremely easy to keep filled in-situ - it has a large, removable reserve tank) acts as an additional dust trap, and can easily be removed for cleaning in the dishwasher as required. I suppose once every other month in constant use would be preferred. Having used it for a while, I can't imagine going back to life without it. No, it's not going to keep your entire house dust free, but if you have allergy sufferers, I'd imagine putting one in their bedroom would be very worthwhile. It'll certainly help you reduce the need to dust the room. I really have nothing bad to say about it. Highly recommended.

Hi - can you just clarify perhaps - when you say dust - do you mean paper dust? I also have a home office & because I also make handmade cards, my room is awash with the stuff. Given I also use spray glues I'm now hugely concerned as to the effects all of these activities are having on my lungs, but the dust is probably the only issue I can hope to really address. This is such a major outlay for me I need to be fairly sure the item is going to do a reasonably decent job on it. I'm also a Vine reviewer & gutted I never got an opportunity to try one of these for review :(

If you're creating dust in large quantities and are worried about your lungs, you probably want to look at getting (or making) a proper booth with a hood and extractor. I'd certainly recommend that if you're using spray glues. I always use my 3M Photo Mount out in the garage, as it over-sprays wildly, and it's a nightmare to get off. This air filter is not going to be able to clear the air of dust in a few seconds.

Thanks for that feedback Robert - unfortunately funds will never stretch to the extractor idea so have to find something that will be better than nothing. I'm already heavily disabled with a raft of autoimmune conditions but no money much to be able to save enough for very high cost items - even this appliance is stretching me to the max, but I figure it's a small cost to at least attempt to help my situation. Might talk it over with my GP & see his take on it. Appreciate your input. :)

My advice would be to use the spray adhesive outside the house in a well ventilated area, or use a *good quality* filter mask like the 3M Maintenance Free Respirator (available from Screwfix for £20, code 13038). Also to invest in a good quality HEPA filter vacuum cleaner before considering additional questionable investments. Take a look at Miele - they're the only reasonably priced HEPA filter vacuum cleaners which are correctly sealed and actually work. They're made in Germany, so no surprises there. The Honeywell air filter is not rated as a HEPA filter.
