Exterminate Dust Mites with Raycop

by

Raycop

When we sleep in our nice comfy beds we are often sharing them with around 2 million tiny friends, the dust mite. Not only do we share our bed with these ugly pests but they also use it as their own personal toilet, nice! Ewbank have introduced a solution to this bacterial infestation, the Raycop Vacuum Thing.

The Raycop functions like a conventional hand held vacuum cleaner, however it has a couple of extra tricks up it’s sleeve. Firstly it vibrates which helps knock the pesky mites (and droppings) from your mattress, these are then sucked in the vacuum. Whilst this is going on your bed is being cleansed with a UV-C sterilising lamp which is said to kill 99.9% of bacteria. So maybe you’ll be able to sleep that little bit better.

Further information over on the Raycop site, no indication of availability or pricing though.

Dust mites and bed bugs are NOT the same thing. Dust mites feed off of shed skin cells. Dust mites are microscopic and do not bite. Bed bugs are not microscopic, can be seen by the naked eye and they bite. Bed bugs feed off of blood, come out when we are asleep and bite, causing itching and rashes.

It is just like that full size vacuum you featured recently. I’m not sure about the validity of the UV wonders. It would be interesting to see how well these actually perform or if its just fancy marketing.

UV-C lamp does not work on dark surface. Check this before buying. I returned mine because of this.
