Dramatic Secret Mobile air purifier testimonial

With new studies showing toxic chemicals in common household dust
(some of which may become airborne and breathed in), and the warmer
months bringing pollens and other airborne allergens, now would be an
ideal time to consider an effective air purifier such as that made by
AirSource. We would like to share with you the following inspiring
testimonial from Kathleen Riley,
a very happy user of "Barefoot Secret Products".

For several years, I've had problems sleeping at night for more
than two or three hours at a time because of difficulty breathing
from the various allergens in the air. I had to blow my nose
continually. I felt miserable at night, and due to a lack of sleep,
I was tired much of the time. There were also countless nights of
not sleeping one wink. My sleeping patterns became irregular.

During the day, I often felt miserable. Dust, cat dander, fumes from
chemical supermarket cleaners and other allergens contributed to my
breathing challenges.

When I first tried the AirSource Mobile unit, my family plugged it
into the car's cigarette lighter, and it refreshed the air inside
the car within 30 minutes.

At home, I plugged it into my bedroom outlet and kept it running 24
hours a day. Within the first three to four hours, the air quality
had improved greatly. That night, instead of sleeping two or three
hours and then waking up, I slept for about four hours, then woke up
and within a few minutes, I went back to sleep. For the first time
in years, I was able to breathe deeply.

After the one-week trial period using the AirSource Mobile Air
Purifier loaner unit, it was helping me so much that it was hard
parting with it and giving it back. My family decided that we were
going to purchase a purifier from "Barefoot Secret", and normally it takes a
week or so for shipping before it arrives. I was very happy when my distributor
happened to have one in stock that I could purchase that
very day. I was relieved that I wouldn't have to wait a week or
so, and go back to suffering with sinuses, allergies and problems

As the AirSource Mobile unit was reducing the airborne contaminants,
within one week, I was sleeping for six hours straight before waking
up. Within two weeks, I was able to sleep through the entire night.
By the fourth week, the quality and duration of my sleep had greatly
improved. Sleeplessness, the main problem, had gone away, and I was
able to sleep the whole night through and wake up refreshed.

The AirSource Mobile purifies the air up to 300 square feet, so as
long as I am within that parameter, I've been able to breathe
deeply. When I am in other parts of the house away from the treated
air, my breathing challenges would return.

A couple of weeks ago, I was in my office working at my computer for
several hours. For the first couple of hours, my breathing was being
affected by the airborne allergens and every few minutes I was
reaching for a Kleenex to blow my nose. I was miserable and found it
hard to concentrate on the project on which I was working. When you
can't breathe out of your nose, that's a major distraction. I
thought to myself, "Why am I suffering like this when I could go
get the AirSource Mobile air purifier from my bedroom and plug it in
the office?"

After I brought the unit to my office and as it began to purify the
air, within 30 minutes I was feeling better, and within an hour I was
breathing much easier. The AirSource air purifier not only
decreased the airborne contaminants, but within a short period of
time, I had forgotten that I even had been suffering from breathing
problems in the first place. I was able to enjoy working on my
project for several hours without having to breathe in airborne

Before we knew about AirSource, we've been using another popular
brand of air purifier for years in our home. We have two large units
that clean the air throughout the whole house, and two miniature ones
for the bedroom, office or bathroom. These four units of the other
brand of air purifier have helped somewhat to improve air quality,
but the difference hasn't been significant. Even with them
running 24/7, we still suffered from breathing in the airborne
allergens. I used to have the other leading brand of air purifier
plugged in my room, but it wasn't doing much for me. I still
suffered daily with breathing difficulties from the allergens,
especially at night. The airborne impurities robbed me of precious

In using both the "Barefoot Secret" AirSource Mobile air purifier and the
leading brand we've been using, from my own personal experience,
I would say that the other brand is average, but the AirSource is

With the AirSource Mobile unit, I noticed a dramatic improvement in
air quality. Not only was the air freshened, but I was able to
breathe much easier, too. I had previously gone through years of
enduring a lack of sleep. But in one month's time — to go
from sleeping two or three hours nightly (with miserable tossing and
turning) to sleeping eight to nine hours with sound sleep and deep
breathing — that is a miracle, and I'm very grateful. It's been
wonderful to wake up feeling refreshed versus waking up feeling tired
and groggy.

I've been so pleased with the AirSource Mobile Air Purifier that I
want to very soon get the larger AirSource unit that takes care of
the whole house (purifies up to 3000 square feet).

I would highly recommend the AirSource air purifier to anyone who
suffers from breathing problems, has trouble sleeping, has pets,
lives near refineries, lives in an area where there are many airborne
allergens or chemicals, or works in an atmosphere where there are
chemical odors released into the air (including beauty salons). The
AirSource air purifier does an excellent job of cleansing the air of
various allergens, as well as freshening the air of odors or musty
smells. It gives the atmosphere a clean, fresh country air scent, or
like that of the refreshing scent of a sweet, pure sea breeze.

Household dust a health concern


Angela C. Grattaroti lives in the town nicknamed “Plastic City” and for years has heard about problems with toxins in plastic. But when the dust from her vacuum cleaner was tested for toxic chemicals from plastic products as part of a national chemical safety study, she was floored by the results.

“I was astounded,” the Leominster resident said of the trace chemical contaminants found in dust from her home and nine other homes in Massachusetts. The contaminants included chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities, asthma, and brain and nervous system development problems.

She said she was equally surprised to learn that the United States and Massachusetts are far behind European Union countries in adopting regulations to phase out use in household products of many of the toxic chemicals found in the home tests here and replace them with safer alternatives.

Rosa Fernandez of Worcester, who also had samples of her household dust collected for the study, was upset by the results. “Our top priority as parents is to protect our children from harm,” she said. “It’s inexcusable that my family has been subjected to hazards that could have been avoided.”

The dust tests, part of the national Safer Products Projects, checked for 44 chemicals commonly found in household products, carpeting, toys, pots and pans, and home furnishings, and found traces of 25 of them in dust from homes tested in Massachusetts. Similar findings came from tests in six other states

Although the study did not determine that the presence of the chemicals in household dust posed a specific risk to health, sponsors said it shows that toxics from household products make their way into household dust and that the dust can be an exposure pathway that has not been examined closely enough.

“I’m ready to pull off the shower curtain,” Ms. Grattaroti said yesterday of the findings of trace amounts of phthalate compounds in the dust. Phthalates — used in making vinyl products such as shower curtains, raincoats, toys and furniture, as well as some perfumes, hair sprays and nail polishes — were found in the dust from the Massachusetts homes. Those compounds have been linked to asthma and male infertility.

The tests also found traces of pesticides associated with cancer and birth defects; perfluorinated organic compounds, used in making stain-resistant materials and non-stick pots and pans; brominated flame retardants, linked to nervous system and behavioral system problems in animals; and alkylphenols found in textiles and cleaning products that are suspected of leading to altered sexual development in some animals.

She said she began learning about household toxic chemicals that can damage organ function when a speaker knowledgeable about household toxics talked to the Leominster Special Education Advisory Committee. “We were all shocked by all these things that we buy for our homes that emit toxic chemicals,” said Ms. Grattaroti, co-chairwoman of the committee.

Talking to reporters in a national telephone conference about the test results yesterday, Ms. Grattaroti said she is especially concerned about exposure to toxic chemicals.

“There is a high incidence of autism, asthma and autoimmune illness in our community,” she said. She also noted that about 28 percent of the children in Leominster are experiencing learning disabilities, including her own son.

“I am certainly switching over to safer products and I am certainly going to call state Rep. Jennifer L. Flanagan and state Sen. Robert A. Antonioni” to ask them to speed up efforts to mandate safer alternatives in products sold here, she said.

Sponsors of the study, titled “Sick of Dust Chemicals in Common Products” took samples from households in seven states and found various toxic chemicals in all the samples. The states involved were California, New York, Michigan, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts and Maine.

It was the first such effort in the United States, modeled after studies that prompted regulatory action in European Union countries.

“This is a clear case of toxic trespass,” said Cyndi Luppi, organizing director of Clean Water Action, which is working with the Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow to get the state Legislature to phase out key toxic chemicals.

How to Clean Drains the Natural Way!

This message came from a plumber who discovered a way to get better results than the instructions on our natural drain cleaner

Natural Drain Cleaner! For all your pipes and drains

Having been a plumber by trade, I use a slightly different procedure than the instructions say on the container. But I can assure you this procedure will enhance the performance of Natural Drain Cleaner AND your drains!
A. Thompson, New Brighton, MN.
Recommended treatment for slow drains:.
Mix 2 teaspoons of Natural Drain Cleaner with 2 cups warm water in a small container. [The Natural Drain Cleaner dissolves into an enzyme solution.]
Pour the enzyme solution down your drain.
Do not use the drain for about 6 hours.
To maintain clean drains, treat with Natural Drain Cleaner once every month.

I treat a slow drain for 5 days; this will coat the inside of your drain with the enzymes. The warm water activates the enzymes. As the enzyme solution travels through the drain, the enzymes cling to and embed themselves in the build-up that makes your drains run slow. The enzymes will continue to eat the build-up until your drains are cleared and squeaky clean! You should notice an improvement in the flow rate after about 3 days.

Just how safe are Barefoot Secret Cleaners

Barefoot Secret Company has a Material Safety Data Sheet for each one of the cleaners. (MSDS)

They are very safe!

Example as told by Linda:
My 3 yr old grandson, dumped the Germacide all over himself, in his mouth and eyes.(I don't recommend it!)
We called the hospital, they said to wash him up and rinsse his eyes, he should be fine, they knew about the safety of the Barefoot Secret cleaners.

By the end of the day, his eyes were still irritated, so we took him to the hospital, they flushed his eyes with saliene solution.They said it was like getting a mild sunburn on the eyes and that if it would have been bleach, he would have been blinded.

Hope this information helps, I feel very confident using the products!

An Amazing Natural, Safe Soil Conditioner

Mix 3 oz All Purpose H with 10 gallons of water for every 1,000 square feet of soil.

Apply directly to area and immediately irrigate with 1-2 inches of water. Or use a sprayer attached to your garden hose and set the sprayer at the appropriate application rate.

Take care not to apply the All Purpose H mixture directly to growing plants.


Fill an Ortho garden hose spray bottle with All Purpose H; apply a light, non-soaking spray in early spring, two times during the summer and once in the fall. 1:50 dilution.

Rinse with clear water from plant leaves - if don't rinse, it breaks down wax surface on leaves.

I have all kinds of old info on All Purpose H for lawns, agricultural, chicken houses, pig farming, greenhouses, etc. Call Cindy at 888-272-6701 or
