We love any blogger’s post that includes the shout-out, “Purely Products is my kind of company.” But then able2able.com put Healthy CFL, the little air purifier wrapped in a compact fluorescent lightbulb, to the ultimate smell test – baby poo and doggie drool.
You can read her entire review including her passion for Pocket Purifier here, but check out her family’s bottom line on the bulb.
“I also reviewed the Healthy light bulb. This innocent looking compact fluorescent lightbulb actually has an air purifier in its middle. The Healthy CFL cleans the air of cigarette smoke, pollen, mold, germs, dust, odors, pet dander and other airborne contaminants. As it cleans, the built-in ionizer also counters the draining effects of positive ions emitted every day by items like computers, cell phones, televisions, and forced air ventilation, while flowing a steady stream of refreshing negative ions into the air to boost mood and energy. Yeah, I was happy to have two of these in my home!
So does the Healthy CFL work?
My Red Dog loves to sneak on the couch when we are out on Clara-Bear’s longer appointment days. I discovered he was drooling on my couch when I started coming home to a closed up house with a funky smell. Now I leave the living room light with the Healthy CFL bulbs in it and I no longer notice a dog smell or closed up stuffy smell, even with the a/c turned up to 79 degrees. Since the Healthy CFL uses 80% less energy than a traditional light bulb we have not noticed an increase in our electricity bill with the light on all day.
I also had to move my essential oil diffuser out of the living room since I could not smell my beautiful oils. And I put the Healthy CFL to the ultimate, grossest test yesterday. I changed a super-pooper diaper underneath it, turned the a/c temp up, and left the house for an hour. I was relieved not to smell poop when we returned!”
“Since we have a houseful of asthma, allergies, and exzema, I really like knowing that allergens and triggers are being cleaned by the Healthy CFL’s along with the funk.”

As the economy pushes families to scrutinize household budgets even more intensely, mom’s influence has solidly increased in all family purchases, according to a recent report from Experian Marketing Services reported on by Media Post News. 69% of moms report being “the most influential person in the household when it comes to making purchase decisions.”
And from organic milk to free range chicken, the trend is moving swiftly from thinking green to buying green. “The growth trend toward green purchases among younger moms, at this point, is outpacing the 35-and-older mothers by at least 5% a year.” The report attributes it, especially with moms under 35, to “more information available about the impact of green choices on children’s health.”
Bloggers this summer reviewing Pocket Purifier, the handheld germ-eliminating UV light from Purely Products, just in time for the back to school germ wars bore this out.
Real Moms Real Views asked, "Why would you not avoid getting sick if you could? Well…TADA! You can! Did I ever test it out! I used it on my keyboard, my toothbrush, the sponge, my puppy’s toys, my cell…everything I could think of. Now you can kill germs without chemicals, isn’t that very green chic!?”
Or as RealMommy365 explained, “I have a large family with 8 children and that means I’m in a constant war with germs. I love that the Pocket Purifier is chemical free and so would my followers. Most of my followers are similar to me in that they prefer more natural choices when it comes to their families.”
After disinfecting stuff at home, it was time to take it on the road! First stop, the food court at our local mall. While the hubby did the ordering, I whipped out my new “toy” and began to sanitize the table. I had quite a few stares from people wondering what I was doing with that cool light. “
