Allergic to your Cat? Pet CFL to the Rescue!

Congratulations to Janet Vandenabeele the winner of the Pet CFL

“Change a lightbulb Change a life”

Are  you  or  a member of your family allergic to your cat? Do you have other allergies, asthma, or pet dander issues? Well, Purely Products new Pet CFL Air Purifier in a Lightbulb Controls Pet Dander and Odor!  We were super excited to learn about this new Pet CFL at the Global Pet Expo.  It was one of our favorite products at the show.

Spring is here and after a long and cold winter, we are all super happy to see daffodils popping up through the ground, but for many people along with spring flowers come spring allergies! Some of our friends not only suffer from spring allergies, but have allergies all year long, asthma and are allergic to pet dander. Did you know that about 15% of the population is allergic to dogs or cats? And approximately 1/3 of the people who are allergic to cats live with at least one anyway!

My mom is allergic to cat dander.  When I first came to live with my parents, my mom took allergy medication. She must have gotten used to me now, because she doesn’t have to take the medicine, but if she pets me and forgets to wash her hands,  then touches her eyes, they swell up and get super itchy for a little while.  Most of the time, everything is just fine. Our habitat has a strong filter on the furnace and we are a carpet free habitat.  My dad starts sneezing this time of year, but he does not seem to be allergic to me.

So when we saw the Pet CFL from Purely Products we were super excited. The Pet CFL is a compact flourescent lightbulb, an air purifier wrapped in a light bulb, that cleans the air, controlling pet dander and odor. Purely Products is a leader in bringing innovative, eco-friendly, healthy living products to market.

Allergies, asthma and pet dander and odor can be critical issues for pet lovers. Pet CFL, an energy effiicient compact flourescent lightbulb, has a built-in-ionizer that cleans the air, removing pet dander and odor, as well as other airborne allergens.  Watch the Pet CFL ionizer technology remove cigarette smoke in 30 seconds.

Super Hurrah!

Here are some benefits of  the Pet CFL:

  • Built in ionizer emits negative ions that clean the air, removing animal dander, smoke, pollen, odors, fumes, dust mites, mold and other airborne allergens. Effective in a room 12′x12′  Guaranteed for 2 years.
  • EnergyStar rated-Uses 1/5 the energy of standard incandescnet light bulbs. 10,000 hour life span.
  • Negative ions have also been shown to increase serotonin levels to boost mood and energy
  • A great option for your home and office
  • Save over $44 and reduce CO2 output by over 750 lbs! Over the life of the bulb, based upon 9.8 cents per Kilowatt hour

And as if this isn’t great enough, there is even more good news.  A percentage of all sales of Purely Products supports diaperLove, a non-profit organization providing diapers to children in need.  Changing diapers, Changing lives. Every Pet CFL purchase supports Purely’s Change a lightbulb Change a life campaign that helps diaperLove.

We changed our light bulbs in our habitat to the Pet CFL, and my dad has not sneezed since we made the switch. This is what happened in our habitat but I can not guarantee what will happen in yours.  I also want to tell you that Purely Products sent me the Pet CFL bulbs to try free of charge.

Post a comment below this post, telling me about  any pet dander or other allergy sufferers in your family. I am asking only those of you that have allergy issues to post. Don’t worry there are many other super cool products coming in the near future.

    I can’t believe this isn’t being advertised everywhere. Too bad doctors don’t know about them; huh, maybe they do!!! LOL.. Nah, but really. I’ve had pets all my adult life and once over the initial desensitizing period in my 20′s, I’ve never shown to be allergic to them, but in the last 3 years, when I’m around them (4 inside), I ALWAYS feel like there is cat hair on my face and in my nose…always having to go splash water in my face to “get it off”. I take allegra, several different inhalers and use a nebulizer at times. I’ve tried having the cats fur clipped short to alleviate a lot of it, but there’s STILL enough cat hair around here to knit another cat, as if I NEED another one! Win or not, I’m trying these bulbs. And sending some to my grown son, who is disabled and NEVER gets enough “daylight” so is living on depression meds. Hoping there really IS something to the serotonin thing, so I’m REALLY excited to get some and pass them on too!

    Good Morning Gracey, my daughter is allergic to my two cats and also her two bunnies. She absolutely loves them but they make her miserable and she has to take allergy medicine just to breathe. Would love to try this product to see if it would help.

    I just went to the Purely Products website. I didn’t know their bulbs also help other allergies, too! I am fortunate not to be allergic to my brood (though I do get a little itchy brushing my big old Persian mix who sheds a kitten’s worth of hair every few days), but I’ve had other allergies most of my life. Tree pollen and mold are the worst. And with moving right now, I’ve been sucking up dust like it’s chocolate, lol. I’ll definitely try out these bulbs.

    I have got to try this, I love my kitties, but I am constantly taking every pill and remedy I can find to keep my allergies and asthma under control. I know it I got rid of the cats my allergies would improve, but I could never give away my precious darlings.

    Hiya Gracey! We would LOVE to try out the Pet CFL for you! My boyfriend, Jordan, is completely in love with my cats, and they with him. Ever since he moved in with us a few months back, it’s been “Momma, who?” lol The only thing is, he’s allergic. He’s gotten a little better since he’s been around them so much, but he still gets itchy, watery eyes and congested every once in a while. We have tried anti-allergy pet wipes, multiple daily brushings, and many types of over the counter pet meds. We would sincerely love to try the Pet CFL. Thank you!

  • Sue Lauer

    Gracey, we would love to have this product in our habitat. We came to live with our humans as misfit rescues. No one wanted us. Our mommie gets very upset cause her son doesnt come to visit with her new grandbaby. Her son is allergic to all three of us! Mommie and Daddy both clean the house spotless and we get brushed and cleaned all the time. We think this would help out Mommie alot. Please pick us! Love, Callie Mae, Pudgy, and Goldie Nugget

    If this works, it will be a Godsend! I’m allergic to cats, but my husband and I have four. They are worth every sniffle, sneeze, and wheeze! A lot of people don’t understand how/why I would have cats if I’m allergic, but I just love my babies, and I’d have more if our house were larger! I’m looking forward to seeing just how well this works for me.

    Hi Gracey! My fiance and I have 4 rescue cats. He isn’t allergic to the babes, but I am. I love them so much though, so I take a nasal steriod spray and an allergy medication. When I wake up in the morning and my Dot Dot snuggles on me my nose starts to run and I sneeze like it is nobodies business. These light bulbs would be a huge help. Wow!

    That’s the coolest invention I’ve seen in a long time Gracey!! Thank you for sharing.

    Hello Gracey…my 4 year old son and I love to read your blog. We are truly excited to see your offer and we hope you pick us to try one of the bulbs. My son is allergic to puppy dander and my parents are a foster home to senior golden retrievers. We love our rescues and would never stop opening our hearts but the dander reeks havoc on my son’s skin causing eczema and also causes nasal congestion. We would love to try these bulbs to see if they help so we can reduce the medication we are giving to my son. We love you and keep doing your good work.

    I have 5 cats, all of them rescues. I have cat allergies (dont touch the face and wash those hands!) but love my fur babies so much I couldnt imagine not having them! I live on Claritin, every morning I have to take it or I am sneezing and my nose is running. Its worth it to save the babies I save. :)
