If there’s anything the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us, it’s the importance of keeping a clean living space.

The last thing you probably want during this time is to get your allergy sniffles confused for COVID-19 symptoms. But fret not: you can avoid those symptoms by simply keeping your living space free of germs, dust, and bacteria. With that in mind, we recommend these clean living gadgets from MEX to keep keep your immune system happy and make your best life at home.

If dust is your number one enemy, you can easily eliminate them with a vacuum cleaner. From dust bunnies to pet dander, MEX’s VACIO VS505 will bust any type of dust you’re battling with. It embraces a cordless design which means you can freely vacuum any corner of your house without worrying about accidentally unplugging your vacuum cleaner or tripping over wires. The compact design also means it’s perfect for city dwellers who live in tight spaces like condominiums and apartments.

The vacuum comes with 7 interchangeable attachments that will optimise your cleaning process for different types of spaces. The upholstery brush is great for vacuuming your couches while the crevice brush will help you reach dust in the deepest corners of your house.

For clean air: MEX Purifina P401 Air Purifier

Small dust particles and VOCs that float around may not be visible to you, but breathing them can trigger immune responses like runny nose or sneezing. Keeping your air cleaner can help reduce your chances of inhaling allergens, and an air purifier like MEX’s Purifina P401 can do just that.

For clean water: Cuckoo by MEX MN 021W Nano Water Purifier

Another component to complete your clean living lifestyle is by drinking clean water. Though tap water contains many healthy minerals that your body needs, depending on where you live, it can also be contaminated with anything from lead to chlorine and carcinogens. MEX’s MN 021W Nano Water Purifier can filter particle sizes as small as 0.001 microns. This 5-step purifier works by first filtering any sediments in your water. The carbon filter then works in 3 steps to remove unpleasant tastes and odours while maintaining the healthy minerals present in the water. The last stage, which is the nano-positive filter, is responsible for removing live organisms like viruses, bacteria, and enzymes.

With a filtering capability of up to 3600 litres, the filters will last you anywhere between 4 months to a year, depending on the water quality in your area. But unlike any regular purifier, this electric purifier is equipped with smart settings for dispensing different quantities of water, and the filters work to optimise the filtration process for different water levels.
