Ah, summer! The time for picnics, barbecues, pool parties — and chores. June marks the season when homeowners do a lot more outdoor chores, but you don’t have to pay a fortune to get what you want and need.
Find deals for scrubbing the driveway clean, items for inside the home that help purify the air, or maybe you just want to take advantage of deals to get that personal electronic gadget you’ve always wanted.
While the living isn’t always easy during summertime, Komando.com has found these four great deals to keep more money in your pocket to use for the fun things you really want to do when the heat rises.
Get the grime out with a pressure washer
Your lawn may be perfectly manicured and your flowerbeds blooming in bursts of colors, but for many homeowners, that’s not enough to enhance curb appeal. A stained driveway can detract from an otherwise beautiful front yard. That’s where pressure washers come into play.
The Sun Joe SPX3000 Pressure Joe makes removing grease deposits, heavy mildew, oil and rust stains from concrete a breeze. The corded model generates up to 2,030 PSI of water pressure, has a powerful 1,800-watt, 14.5-amp motor and 1. 76 GPM of water flow. Plus, it comes equipped with a detergent tank that can hold almost 41 fluid ounces.
Along with cleaning driveways, you can also blast the gunk off such summer staples as RVs, boats, patio furniture, barbecues, decks and more. With a 34-inch extension spray wand and rear wheels, you get maneuverability and easy access to tight spaces.
Get rid of mosquitoes with a bug zapper
There’s nothing worse than fighting off mosquitoes as you try to have a barbecue party or even just sit on your porch having drinks. You can spray insect repellent on yourself or bug killer around the area, but do you really want all those chemicals near you?
Enter the Flowtron BK-15D Electronic Insect Killer. This lantern-style bug zapper uses nontoxic ultraviolet light to attract and eliminate mosquitoes, biting flies and other insects. And it covers half an acre.
Along with being safer than chemicals, the Flowtron has a patented killing grid that will eliminate clogging that short-circuits other units or causes flare-ups of insect remains. While it kills bugs, its outer enclosure prevents children, pets, birds or other wildlife from being harmed by the charged grid.
Keep your indoor air fresh with air purifiers
If a summer day is too hot, you’ll likely want to stay indoors with the air conditioner keeping your home cool. But an air conditioner doesn’t clean the air around you. That’s the job of an air purifier.
The GermGuardian AC4825 22-inch, 3-in-1 Full Room Air Purifier, traps allergens, smoke, odors, mold, dust, germs, pet dander and more. The GermGuardian is designed to work in rooms up to 167 square feet.
It filters and circulates room air more than four times per hour, and its Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) has been independently tested for its ability to remove tobacco smoke, pollen, and dust. The higher the CADR, the faster the unit filters air.
The GermGuardian’s other features include a HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of dust and allergens as small as .3 microns, such as household dust, pet dander, mold spores, and plant pollens.
Its charcoal filter reduces common odors from pets, smoking, and cooking. Finally, its UV-C light technology works with titanium dioxide to reduce airborne bacteria, viruses, germs, and mold spores. Keep your indoor air clean and your family healthy.
Keep a watch on Apple Watch prices
As Apple rolls out new or updated products at its developer’s conference, you could get some bargains right now.
If you’re not someone who has to have the latest Apple gadget, you’ll be able to find great deals on a number of its older ones. For example, you can already see a price difference between the Apple Watch Series 3 and the Apple Watch Series 4.
The Series 4 has more features, is more powerful and more compact than the Series 3, but the Series 3 isn’t exactly from the Stone Age.
The Series 3 has a 563-square millimeter or 740-square millimeter display area; an 11.4-millimeter casing, a dual-core S3 processor and an optical heart sensor.
The Series 4 has a 759-square millimeter or 977-square millimeter display area; 10.7-millimeter casing; a 64-bit dual-core S4 processor that is up to two times faster than the S3; an electrical heart sensor; a second-generation optical heart sensor; and fall detection.
Again, if you don’t need every single bell and whistle, the Apple Watch Series 3 can still provide you with what you want and leave some money in your bank account.
