Wein VI-2500 High-Density Ionic Air Purifier
Indoor air pollution is a very serious problem. According to The U.S. EPA, "air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities." Common sources of indoor air pollution include: Radon, Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS), Biological Contaminants, Stoves, Fireplaces, Household Products, Formaldehyde, Pesticides, Asbestos, and Lead. To make things worse, Americans now spend 90 percent of their time indoors. Constantly breathing polluted indoor air imperils our health and even dampens our spirits. Fortunately there is a solution . . . Ionization. Ionization works by generating negative ions to counteract pollutants. The negative ions bind to positively-charged unwanted particles, reversing their polarity so they drop to the nearest surface or are neutralized. Negative ions increase oxygen intake and stimulate alertness and vitality, like breathing mountain air. The ionizers developed and manufactured by Wein Products are the Gold Standard in air ionizers. Since 1967, Wein Products has been the leading innovator of this technology. Their products have been tested in hundreds of scientific tests worldwide, and have received commendations from Ground Zero Museum, U.S. Department of Justice, Los Angeles Police Department Bomb Squad, British Ministry of Defense and countless others during the many years in production. In only the first hour of use, the VI-2500 has been shown to remove over 98% of harmful airborne particles, and it will virtually eliminate 100% of airborne contaminants with continued use. Costing only pennies a month to operate, and using less than 6 watts of electricity, the VI-2500 emits the highest available ion output, 450 trillion per second, and removes particles as small as .01 micron, about 40,000 times smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. The VI-2500 has been proven to be least 4 times more effective than comparable units.
HoJo (formerly the Heritage Inn)
Along the Lincoln Highway and I-70 in Breezewood, PA
"The room was freezing, the wallpaper was falling off the wall, there was mold on the walls and the ceiling, the ceiling was covered with dark black dirt or mold, the toilet was filthy and stained dark brown."
"The carpet in the hallway looked like someone had been murdered there, large dark stains which had just been smeared around. The smell in the hallway was unpleasant also. Upon opening the room door it was like stepping back in time. The hotel must have been built in the 1960s and hadn't had anything updated, with the understandable wear and tear of 50 years showing embarassingly. The smell in the room was unbelievable. My first thought was that a body must have been left there for a week and they tried to cover up the smell with gallons of cheap cleaning agent. We could hardly stand to walk around the room due to the overwhelming chemical stench. The bathtub was disgusting with a greasy ring around the edge and a mouldy shower curtain. The door safety chain had been ripped out of the frame."
"When I went to take a shower, it felt very creepy. The shower clearly had been "skipped" in the cleaning with a dirty washcloth still on the floor in one corner all dried up. And the bottom 2 inches of the shower curtain was black from grime and mildew where it lays on the floor of the shower."
"It really wasn't that clean, and the location was too close to the highway and had constant truck traffic noise. The pool was scary dirty, and I certainly wouldn't have swam in it!"
"a type written sign that explained there is a water discoloration issue but the pool and spa is safe to swim in. The water in the pool was a forrest green, and the water int he hot tub was red."
"I'm never one to complain but I had to this time. I've never stayed in such an "unclean" hotel room before. My In-laws and I were traveling from PA to MD and stayed at the Howard Johnson in Breezewood. There was a bad snow storm and we were very exhausted. We realized after turning the comforter down that the sheets were not changed, there was a HUGE brown stain along with hair all over each bed. I called the front desk and they dropped off clean sheets at the door. My In-Laws got our beds ready while I decided to shower. I turned on the water and rust came pouring out of the faucet, after getting in I realized that there was yellow soap scum all over the tub! The drain was also so clogged that it filled up with water as I was taking a shower. I then went to use the toilet and it was not cleaned either!!! At this point I was so disgusted and wanted to leave but my In-Laws were already sleeping. I got into bed and felt itchy all over and still felt dirty from my shower. In the morning when we went to check out there was dog poop in the middle of the hallway outside our door!" -- excerpts from various reviews @ tripadvisor.com
Closet of Wonder
The Closet of Wonder: actually fits all our clothes sans shoes.
It was originally the same almost white mint green as the rest of the room– I repainted in bright white (mildew resistant Kitchen & Bath finish) because I didn't like the idea of choosing clothes in a faint green glow, made worse by the flourescent lighting.
While tempted to buy cutesy wicker baskets, I used clear plastic shoe containers I already owned as 'dresser drawers' on the pre-existing shelves and for deeper storage on the top shelf. I figured the see-through plastic would make it easier to find things and keep clean in the end, besides being extremely cheaper, grin.
I used college-era plastic/milk crates on the top shelf to make compartments for our Tshirt "rolls" (I roll clothes instead of folding them; a trick I learned from a college roommate).
While M's clothes all fit 'out' all at once, I put my summer clothes in the back top corner of the closet.
I installed a Closet Maid hook rack on the left side for keeping the 'worn but not dirty' clothes off the floor. This required drilling holes for plastic screw anchors first (plaster walls), which I'd never done before, but it worked out great. I installed the brackets like it was in the picture, but I should have installed them flush to the outside uprights to keep it from sliding side to side. I ended up sticking a big flat head nail I had in my stash on the bottom of the rack to keep it from flipping up and this also solved the side to side issue.
The old bathroom stool I used as a kid helps me reach the top shelf easier without getting in the way.
I plan to put up a curtain door, but haven't decided on whether to match the window curtain, the wall color, or antique white to match the frame, like the door to the room.
I'm waiting until next summer to decide whether to repaint the window & door frames (+ door?) to match the baseboards.
cleaning mildew off walls
Smelly Washer is coming out with a new product, Smelly Towel. It does the same thing that Smelly Washer does, but is for your towels. Towel Cleaner was made specifically for towels and clothing. Its gentle formula is designed to remove odor-causing mold from towels and clothing. It's citrus-based formula leaves your towels and clothing smelling like they are new! Have you ever wondered why towels and clothing build up mold and mild and smell stinky? Overuse of detergents, using fabric softener and/or using only low water temperatures for washing will cause odor in your washer. The odor-causing residue and mold spores are transferred to towels and clothing and are impossible to remove until the washer has been cleaned. Towels are more plush than clothing therefore absorb more mold spores. Also, towels are used near the face and when wet so odor is noticed more. How to Use - Wash a full load of towels or clothing with hot water and add 1 level cap (1 TBSP) of Smelly Towel Cleaner in place of Detergent. More extreme cases may need to soak for 2 hours to completely remove odor.
