As anyone with asthma or allergies knows, keeping a clean home is key to keeping symptoms under control and manageable.
Canister vacuums are a great choice if you have upholstery and draperies that you want to clean, and they are also great at getting into tight spaces that upright vacuums have a difficult time with.
They are incredibly versatile and able to handle just about any vacuuming job you can throw at them.
However, if you enjoy using candles, there are options for those who have asthma and allergies. The only downside is you may not be able to get them from the dollar store.
As long ago as 1890, researchers have known that paraffin wax (petroleum based) candles can be bad for your health.
