Giveaway: Oreck AirInstinct 200 Air Purifier ($500 value)

30 October 2012


I don't know where I've been all my motherhood but life with smelly toddlers + an air purifier is significantly less smelly and a lot more pleasant than life with just smelly toddlers. I think I'm immune to it but Simon is always commenting on the odd smell that emits from Julia's quarters. Is it due to the fact that she still saturates a diaper overnight? Maybe. Is it due to the fact that her room is where we change 98% of the diapers soiled in this house? Maybe. Is it due to the fact that Sebastian hides all his used socks behind her cage? Most likely. Whatever the reason might be ... her room isn't a field of pleasantly pungent wildflowers. It's getting a little too chilly to keep her windows open all day and the musty smell of winter is just waiting to get his grubby paws on her lair.

Enter the AirInstinct 200 that Oreck generously sent me to put through the ringer. (Trumpets blaring). After just one night of the air purifier running in her room ... it smelled ... normal. It smelled like nothing which is exactly the way this pregnant nose likes thing to smell. And b-b-b-b-onus -- it makes NOISE (if you want it to). We have noise machines galore going at all times around here to keep people from waking up other people and to keep people asleep and to keep moms from hearing toddlers get into BIG trouble. We like our white noise.

AND .. one last little factoid. This bad boy is very lightweight (which I appreciate because it is about to be transported up to Sebastian's area of the cottage to work its magic there) but has taken kindly to Sebastian's maul-esque advances.
Not a wimp. Very impressive.

To win one of your very own and significantly improve your nose's quality-o-life just follow the Rafflecopter's prompts. Thanks much.

  9. Okay. I NEED this. We actually need one and Tommy was saying we need one and now you're giving one away???? Give it to me!

    I learned, ahem, that it senses the level of purification our (dirty dirty) air needs and adjusts itself. That is cray cray.

    I need this.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I am "lucky" enough to live where the stink isn't caused by children. :-/ All the little lungs in this house would appreciate an air purifier.

  11. p.s. the only one I can't do is instagram because my dumb phone that pretends to be a smart phone won't instagram its ghetto self. Evil or what?

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's $400 but it looks like it's worth every penny!!! I like that it adjust the speed automatically. I also like the 3 stage PATH filtration system. It's not just going to filter out garbage smells but it also cleans up harmful VOCs! Love this and we could REALLY use one!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Uhh I work with college students...definitely could use this in my office. And that automatic color-coded speed function would be super useful since I never learned how to read... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. How amazing that you're giving one of these away! I feel like my house always smells like dust. It's so old, the smell is like built into the walls forever, like cigarette smoke.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I learned that it's $500- my goodness!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  43. I learned that it is AWESOME!!! :) and it looks cool too!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I learned that for a visual person like me I can tell when it’s working and at what speed by its 4 color lighting system.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I learned that it continuously traps particles in the air... Which is perfect for someone with allergies like me!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ooh, it does the thinking for you! I like the sound of that. Lord knows I need all the help I can get these days....

    ReplyDelete
  56. My boys room could use this. It smells like boy. And wet dog. Even though we don't have a dog.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love that it cleans 99/97% of the particles from the air. Both my kids have allergies so this would be great for our house! Also I just cleaned out my daughter's room this morning because it has a strange stale smell in it. This would save me from cleaning! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ooh, will this work on our Midwestern can't-open-the-windows-for-five-months "stale" smell? I'd be down with that.

    ReplyDelete
  59. wow wow wow, 9 kids later and I just heard about this??
    Here's hoping I win!!

  60. Pick me, combo of allergies and baby mean that I've been looking for a quality air purifying system but can't justify the price.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yay for removing smells AND allergens. We've got a neighbor who smokes cigars outside ALL THE TIME and it makes our house smell like an old motel room. Ick.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yes please! I'm in a different mothering phase from you, so it is the stinky socks of odoriferous teens and pre-teens and their new body smells...gag, gag, gag.

    so this would be a welcome item.

  86. Oh, I would LOVE this. From the website, it basically sounds like the Big Brother of air purifiers - knows when we have a stinky house and when to SPEED up the purifying. That I love.

    ReplyDelete

  91. Hmm....it looks like a giant iPhone :) My allergic-to-the-dog husband would be all about his!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love that the three-stage filtration system catches pet dander among other things! Minimizing the cat smell and dander that I breathe in daily would be fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love the auto-adjusting. Seriously so cool. You would be sad at how bad our house smells.. what with cooking (when it happens, like once a month) and stinky diapers.

    ReplyDelete
  94. its smart! it monitors the air quality and adjusts accordingly! awesome!

    1. Oh, man, I need this. Life with stinky kids in an urban environment? Hand it over.

      Also, we use white noise the way you use white noise. And I think if I didn't have my white noise, I'd just go ahead and cry.
