Isn’t it annoying whenever Laundry Day gets postponed because of heavy rainfall? Or when mosquitoes start getting inside your room? Let’s not forget room moisture build-up (which is really bad for toy collectors like me) that can lead to molds! These are just some of the common rainy season problems that I can think of, but luckily, these can easily be solved by technology.
Sharp Philippines came up with a range of brilliant and innovative home appliances that are fit for rainy days, in hopes of helping their consumers become comfortable within the safety of their home. Here’s a short list to help you in your #Adulting101 tasks:
1. No Holes Tub Fully Automatic Washing Machine
The rainy season poses a problem in doing your laundry (e.g. kulob smell after drying). The answer to this dilemma is to find a fully automatic washing machine that will last you a long time.
Sharp suggests using their ULTRAWash top load washing machine series which features an elegant and rust-proof body, as well as a waterproof LED display. It also has a lid damper that helps in slowly closing and avoiding damage to the tempered glass lid. What’s interesting about this is that it has ten washing modes: Normal, Spin, Wash, Rinse-Spin, Eco, Jeans, Soft, Baby, and Tub. The series comes with a preset timer to set the delay start time from 1 hour to 24 hours and automatically operates according to its selected program and specified time.
This washing machine is also designed to run even with low water pressure. Aside from that, it has an Air Dry Function that lessens the moisture content of the clothes after spin-drying. With its dual filter feature, it may be effective in preventing lint and other particles that can be left on clothes. As a fur mom, this just might be something I’ll have to #AddToCart soon.
The Sharp ULTRAWASH washing machine series is available in five variants (according to load capacity):
- ES-JN065A9 (GY) – 6.0kg
- ES-JN075A9 (GY) – 7.0kg
- ES-JN085A9 (GY) – 8.0kg
- ES-JN095A9 (GY) – 9.0kg
- ES-JN105A9 (GY) – 10.5kg
- ES-JX105A9(GY) – 10.5kg (Inverter)
2. Plasmacluster 2-in-1 Air Purifier with Dehumidifier (DW-E16FP-W)
During the rainy season, your home will likely be too humid. For toy collectors like me, this is a no-no as having a high-humidity environment can create excess moisture that leads to mold or rot. Indoor humidity can also cause respiratory problems, asthma, and allergy attacks.
To solve this, Sharp suggests using a dehumidifier which can collect and remove excess moisture from the air. This Sharp air purifier and a humidifier in one can emit 7,000 ions per cubic meter. It can eliminate dust, odor, molds, and viruses with its three-step filtering system: Pre-Filter, Deodorizing Filter, and a true HEPA filter.
The Sharp Plasmacluster 2 in 1 Air Purifier Dehumidifying (DW-E16FP-W) is ideal for 24 sqm. room particularly bedrooms, living rooms, and condominiums.
3. Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher
It’s common knowledge that the rainy season is also the breeding season for mosquitoes! Heck, I’m even trying to slap one which has been flying really close to me as I write this blog. Aside from being annoying, these insects may possibly carry dengue and malaria. As a dengue survivor, I would recommend that you keep them away from your family! With this in mind, Sharp released a series of air purifiers, equipped with mosquito catchers.
Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher comes in three variants — the FP-JM30P-B for 23 sqm rooms, the FP-JM40P-B for 30 sqm spaces, and the FP-GM50E-B for 40 sqm. areas. This innovative home device captures mosquitoes with its 5 unique and effective catching mechanisms. It entices the mosquito with its black exterior and UV light inside, it has an ideal entrance size to attract flying insects, it has a powerful airflow that can suck them, and it also has a glue sheet to capture mosquitoes.
It also comes with built-in dust and odor sensors, on/off Plasmacluster Ion modes, and inverter operation.
All these appliances are already available online through the flagship stores of Sharp in Shopee and Lazada. Stay safe (and dry), everyone!
