The Fireplace HEPA Vacuum Cleaner from Hammacher Schlemmer is the most effective, safest and healthiest way to clean your fireplace. Cleaning your fireplace with a vacuum cleaner is actually a very convenient way to dispose of all the ashes after you enjoy a nice cozy fire in your fireplace. But there are a couple of reasons why you really don’t want to use your household vacuum cleaner to do this job.
First, the ashes and cinders that remain in your fireplace after a fire can smolder for sometime and present quite a fire hazard. Your household vacuum cleaner is not designed to be fireproof and is really not suitable to cleanup a fireplace.
Second, the ash that remains in your fireplace is very fine particulate matter and will almost certainly clog the filters in your household vacuum cleaner. Furthermore, most vacuum cleaners do not deal well the level of micro-fine particles in ash and will typically allow a lot of ash to escape and disburse airborne throughout your house.
The Fireplace HEPA Vacuum Cleaner solves these problems and won’t recirculate the microscopic particles of ash throughout the air in your home. This vacuum cleaner’s HEPA filter will safely capture as much as 99.97% of all the airborne particulate matter as small as 1/3000 of a millimeter (we’re talking microscopic particles). The HEPA filter is located on the intake side of the vacuum motor which will prevent the micro-fine and abrasive ash particles from damaging the vacuum or from escaping into the air throughout your house.
Breathing ash particles is simply not healthy for you!
The fireplace HEPA vacuum is equipped with a powerful 800-watt motor that provides plenty of suction power. The ashes are rapidly and safely drawn through the five foot fire-retardant aluminum hose and deposited into the 5 1/4 gallon fire-resistant steel tank. The vacuum lid is easy to detach and makes it easy and convenient to dispose of the ash.
Do keep in mind, even though the Fireplace HEPA Vacuum Cleaner has a fireproof design, to be absolutely safe, you should always try to vacuum cold ash whenever possible. The unit weighs 9 pounds, and is 17 inches high, by 13 inches in diameter.

It’s bitter cold outside and you have your gloves or mittens on. You know it’s impossible to use your iPhone, Android phone or any touch screen device for that matter. It simply doesn’t work with your gloves on. And nothing’s worse than to have to take your gloves off just to use phone. The problem is solved with the Agloves Capacitive Touch Screen Gloves.
Don’t let the freezing cold outside stop you from getting those tweets out, dialing your phone or checking that Facebook page. The Agloves Capacitive Touch Screen Gloves keep your hands and fingers warm and still allow you to use your touch screen device. No more frostbite when you’re out in the elements and you need to send those text messages.
The problem with regular gloves is that they’re not conductive. And that means they simply won’t work with any touch screen device. All of these wonderful devices that we’ve become so dependent on use a capacitive touch screen that’s designed to work by sensing very small minute changes in electrical current when you touch the screen with your finger. And most gloves simply block that electrical activity.
The Agloves Capacitive Touch Screen Gloves, more like cozy mittens actually, have thousands of tiny silver threads wrapped around the nylon fibers which allow the electrical contact from your fingers to reach the surface of the touch screen on your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or any other capacitive touch screen device.
The capacitive touch screen gloves are super cozy, warm and snuggly and are stretchable to provide a nice snug fit which helps optimize the contact with your touch screen device as well. They come in two sizes, medium and large. To determine the proper fit, wrap a measuring tape around your hand, across your palm, just under your knuckles, and don’t include your thumb. See the agloves fitting chart for sizing details.
It’s the winter season, and it’s cold outside. Now you can keep your hands warm and comfortable with the Agloves Capacitive Touch Screen Gloves and never skip a beat again when you’re out in the elements with your iPhone, Android phone, iPad, or iPod. These are the digital age mittens you’ve been looking for!
