for her

germ eliminating
The Germ Eliminating Robotic Vacuum from Hammacher Schlemmer is the robotic vacuum that uses UV light to eliminate up to 99.9% of germs and viruses from floors. A UV lamp under the unit destroys germs, bacteria, and allergens while the robotic vacuum autonomously navigates and cleans floors. Instead of traditional roller brushes, the vacuum uses high power suction to remove deeply imbedded dirt and hair from carpets or dust on hardwood floor planks.  Two filters (one HEPA that captures dust and allergens as small as 0.3 microns) ensure clean air is recycled into your home. Automatically returns to its charging base when the battery runs low. The included barrier projects an infrared beam to confine the vacuum to a specific area and the remote control enables easy spot cleaning. Buy it.
