Smelly teenage bedrooms

Most of us know the odour, smelly socks etc and F***ts. I thought I need something more punchy than an airwick and I am not keen on chemicals . So I thought I know! I have a couple of Lampe Berger air purifiers

I recalled reading that they clean the air from bacteria, so I thought I would share this useful information with all the despairing moms and dads out there.

Lampe Berger History in Brief

When pharmacist Maurice Berger patented his invention in June 1898 in Paris, he intended it to be used for hygiene. Early users of LB were mortuaries and hospitals, places where it was essential to kill germs, get rid of unpleasant odors, and sanitize the air.

Jean-Jacques Failot purchased Maurice Berger’s company in 1927 and changed Berger’s unpleasant-smelling original formula to ethyl alcohol. When undergoing combustion, ethyl alcohol gives off the scent of apples. The public enjoyed the new, pleasant scent, and the business expanded to the consumer market.

The 1920s were the era of the Art Deco movement, and Failot was able to work with the period’s great lamp designers: Baccarat, Galle, Lalique, Sabino, St. Louis, and Theraud. By the 1930s, this beautiful and useful product was desired by consumers in other countries. There was a problem with exports, though, since ethyl alcohol was considered a perfume ingredient in many countries and was taxed as a luxury good.

In 1973, industrialist Marcel Auvrey purchased the LB company. His son Phillipe took over in 1989 and was finally able to branch out to New York. In 1998, LB returned to the tradition of using high-end design materials such as enamel, pewter, and opaline in its signature line, once again using famous designers to give its functional products a decorative touch.

Not only does it repel mosquitoes and other insects in the home, but a lamp filled with Summer Night can also be taken outdoors to repel insects from the patio, deck, grill area, outdoor kitchen, or wherever you’d like to be free from insects bothering you. 

Thank god for these wonderful little lamps!
