I have an idea that hasn't been shared yet!
We had a period of time with heavy smoke due to wildfires where I live, and got an air purifier. The model we have even has a UV light that we can turn on inside of it to kill bacteria/virus/mold spores (good for reduced immune system during pregnancy).
It does a fantastic job of removing odors from the room. I go sit next to it in the bedroom while my husband feeds the cats their wet food, and I can't smell the canned cat food at all (super strong smell).
we got this model, but there are many others available as well
I own 2 of these and have had them for 3 years of pretty much 24/7 use: [link]
They're amazing at removing odors from the air. But I noticed there's a bunch of recent bad reviews so maybe they're not manufactured the same anymore. A garment steamer might help remove odor from clothes.
I recommend using one of the GermGuardian purifiers that have a physical switch. I personally have their AC4825 model plugged into a SmartThings smart outlet in my bedroom. I keep the purifier always set to Medium and use routines to control when it turns on and off.
This is the one I have
I suggest it too cause unlike other air purifiers the filters are cheap, and you can wash the pre filter, the main filters will last for 6 months
you don't need an expensive HEPA purifier, I got one of these and it works great:
I have in my house rules that vaping/dabbing is okay inside but joints/bongs/blunts are outside only. With the above air purifier in the house I don't have any problem at all with smell.
I bought this one.
GermGuardian AC4825 3-in-1 Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter, UV-C Sanitizer, Captures Allergens, Smoke, Odors, Mold, Dust, Germs, Pets, Smokers, 22-Inch Germ Guardian Air Purifier [link]
It has 3 fan settings. I keep it on 3 (2 is ok, but 1 is super quiet) as it's a fantastic white noise machine!
The hepa filter is replaceable, and so is the carbon filter. You don't need to use the UV setting. I did until it expired (UV bulbs typically stop producing uv radiation after 12mth from being turned on . I'm not replacing the bulb.
I buy the generic hepa filter now, as I'm cheap lol it's still catching a ton of dust. I use a good quality of filter (I buy in bulk on Amazon for a huge savings) in my furnace, so them combined do a great job. I don't have crazy dust issues at all. My allergies don't bother me anymore when inside.
I'm currently in an apartment before moving into our house, we have a GermGuardian AC4825 from Amazon. It wasn't the cheapest one on there (~$85) but it works well and has a UV light you can turn on/off to help with smells. It only requires a filter replacement every 6-12 months, depending on use, and they cost maybe $25 or so. I'm not sure how long the UV bulb is supposed to last.
Here's a link: [link]
Before buying a filter, do some research:
•What footage do you need to filter (use correct CFM).
•What particle size does the unit filter?
•Activated charcoal and/or UV light for smells?
•How often does the unit need filter replacement, and how much does it cost?
•How many people have rated it well?
I haven't had this issue with vapor specifically, but the combination of two cats and occasional indoor smoke had us waking up congested and vacuuming/dusting all the time from the overall poor air quality. I picked up a HEPA type air filter which does an amazing job since it picks up anything 3 microns or bigger. It keeps our air clear and smelling fresh even while we vape heavily, so it may help you as well. It also does a great job of reducing dust and pet debris if that's a concern for you.
Does anyone have a reliable figure as to the size of vapor particles? That may help you see if this will work, since I believe most devices made specifically to clear vapor from the air work the same way.
This is the device we have:
I bought this
which says its CADR rated 100+ for medium size room. I think that should be more then enough for a small bedroom
I don't want to repeat what has already been said, but, I will add that putting an air purifier in the same room as the cage can help a lot. We have this one: [link].
It makes a pretty noticeable difference in reducing the smell.
I can't speak to it personally, but I hear these work pretty well.
Just get an air filter .... ?
We use those around the house and they work quite well. You can pull the filter out and blow them off.
Sounds like allergies, or your body adjusting to the atmosphere. Keep your windows closed and try an air filter like this one.
Some might say it won't work but I know my brother had some success with one when he had symptoms like it with his kids.
I'm from Brazil so i have to google alot of the abbreviation, but i'll try the baby shampoo nasal irrigation along with the dymista and will take a break from the Rupafin, but basically i always had a abnormal amount of mucus being produced by my perennial rhinitis, my doctor told me about a new type of immunotherapy that could help me aswell but then i would have to move to the united states since they don't do it here, anyway thank you very much for your help! oh and no i don't wear a cpap but i bought this thing that supossedly could help with the dust/mite that i am very allergic to, been using it for 2 months but nothing really changed unfortunately
Nothing that I came across when I was looking for something similar, unfortunately. I found that same enclosure and it seems insanely expensive for what it is.
What I might suggest is to have the printer in a room that you can close off and ideally has outside ventilation, with a HEPA filter like this:
The studies that are out there right now show a drastic dive in ultra-fine particle concentrations within 10-30 minutes after a print is completed, so as long as the filter runs just a little after the print is finished, the air should be clear. Add in a webcam in the room and something like Octoprint for total remote control.
Hopefully some other printers with HEPA/carbon filtered enclosures will start hitting the market soon.
Exactly. Banning it inside vapeshops would be a bummer, not a 'vaping is going to die' bummer, but it would be just... a... bummer.
Now, vaping in a ventilated shop, or with an air-purifier in each corner, would be a breeze. Also, think about the time you couldn't even taste properly the juice you were thinking of buying because of that apple-cigar-honeydew-creamy-menthol-custard vapor that was suspended in the air... Yeah, that would also help business.
Yeah there are some essential oil diffusers out there as well. I like to diffuse lavender from time to time when I'm relaxing. And yeah, a dehumidifer could be helpful. This is the air purifier we use in our room. It's especially helpful if you have pets.
I dont have a sleeping disorder, I only have Nocturnal lagophthalmos which means when I close my lids my eyes do not close all the way. Causes some dry eye so I use a mask. I used the following product: filter
I'm not allergic to my gf's dogs, I'm allergic to the crap they get stuck in their hair. When I lived at her parents' house for a while, allergy meds helped me a ton. I took Claritin because that's what I had, but if it was too overpowering, I took Allegra too. Those two were in addition Singulair and Vistaril at night. (Maybe I'm secretly killing my liver and kidneys, but my doctors have never said anything.)
I think most people with animal allergies adapt to their animals and the symptoms lessen over time. If you're like me and the animal isn't problematic, but instead it's the junk that gets trapped in the fur, keep the dog clean.
OH AND GET AN AIR PURIFIER. I got this one in the spring for my small bedroom. It made such a huge difference!
yea, my allergies are pretty bad this year too. i actually resorted to getting an air purifier for my apartment and it's worked miracles. it's a bit of an investment and didn't seem to do much at first, but after the first few days it's really made a huge difference. i'd recommend checking out similar products, just make sure it says that it has a true HEPA filter and not a "HEPA-like" filter
I’ve been using this germguardian for the past 2 years, run 24/7 and it hasn’t had a single hiccup. I find it’s quite effective. Filters are about $30 every 6 months and the pre-filter should be vacuumed monthly. It used to be Wirecutters ‘budget pick’ but it has now been replaced by a smaller tabletop unit. Check out their top picks here
This is the one I have [link]
Step 1 - Reduce the mold in the house.
Dry the area, dehumidifier in basement and living area even.
Step 2 - Reudce the mold in the bedroom.
Get a hepa air purifier for the bedroom - run it 24/7.
Make the room air tight if possible. Have an intake fan sucking air in and use a HEPA filter on that.
Step 3 - optional - Get a cpap machine w/ hepa filters.
At this point you should be breathing in clean air w/ no mold spores.
Ask you neighbor to purchase a room purifier (and hell, one for you too!) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004VGIGVY/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_XaL5AbNCSAJD7
I have this and the combo of air purifier + a candle cleans up a room to smelling fresh in like 30-60 minutes.
Would you think something like this would work?
This will help tremendously. Gets rid of all smells. [link]
I did a lot of research on this, check out the GermGuardian models, they get good reviews, I own several different models of them and they work well. This one is in your budget:
I own this one and it works well but it is pretty loud:
Had this guy running for about 3 years with the only time it being off was to change the filter. Solid.
Given the track record I've had with them, you could get the higher end version since it still fits your budget AC9200
use a food grade carbon filter.
I got the Germ Guardian AC4825, $93 on Amazon. I got it because it was highly rated for reducing food smells.
May be interested in this:
I've got one of these running in every room of the house.
The best way is to get a dust filtration system for your room like this: [link]
Can't recommend this thing enough:
Also, there's tons of products out there for cat allergies, wipes, gels, etc.
I use this: [link]

I've mostly got my husky hair under control. Sadly, there's no solution that doesn't involve vaccuuming and brushing-and hair with a long haired dog like a aussie is always going to be an issue.
Hm... those are kinda pricey, but I'm willing to pay a bit more if necessary. So, would something like this work?
I bought this sucker from Amazon some months ago and it seems to work pretty well at getting pot (and other) odors out of the air.
I actually purchased an air purifier and I think it has helped some. I just got this model on amazon because it's highly reviewed - [link]
Portable HEPA filtration unit.
When my cat moved in w/ my bf and I, he went through the same thing. He was allergic to cats his whole life. Here are some steps to help you (he now is relatively okay, and the cat can even sleep in our bed now).
I hope any of this can help! :)
