Swiffer Air Filter

Swiffer Continuous Clean System – ($49.99)

If you only buy 1 item from this list it should be this Swiffer Continous Clean System.  Why do you ask?  For only $49.99 you can get a portable air filter from Swiffer that works wonders. This filter will clean the air in your home or office of particles that the eye can’t see.

After about 30 days of use, Swiffer recommends that you replace the cloth filter which will have gone from a bright white color brand news to yellowish-brown when it’s ready to be replaced. [Purchase at Amazon.com for $49.99] Filters can be tough to find in stores and online so I recommend buying a few extra filters.

Ruffwear Restcycle Bed – ($99.95)
