How I discovered Pingi – battling with the everyday problems of many households
Living in Sydney with its humid climate, clothes getting mouldy and smelling musty in my wardrobes were an ongoing problem. I tried to combat this by putting some of these absorbers based on Calcium Chloride, a mineral salt, into my cupboards. The results were anything but convincing.
Not only did they need constant refilling, which became quite costly, there is also the liquid which accumulates in the bottom container. The whole container can easily be knocked over – it happened to me and our inquisitive cat also managed it. Fortunately he had better sense than to lick the spill, which should not be ingested. When this happened, it got really messy. The liquid went all over the bottom of our wardrobe and damaged several shoes and the carpet –permanently. No, this might solve one problem, but instead created several new problems.
In February this year, my husband and I visited an international trade fair, the Ambiente, in Frankfurt, Germany. Walking through the many halls with the variety of exhibited products was quite overwhelming and tiring. However, spotting in one hall a stall for PINGI rechargeable dehumidifiers stopped me in my tracks, and my tired feet were forgotten. My first thought was “That’s what I need!” My husband had walked on without noticing my excitement, while I started talking to the exhibitor. She explained that the bags contained non-toxic silica gel crystals, which absorbed moisture from the surrounding air. The indicator on the front would change colour to show when it would need to be recharged. And to recharge, the product just needed to be popped into the microwave. This sounded like THE answer to my problems.
Obviously, once I had caught up with him, I told my husband about this discovery and we went back to the stall to chat some more to the exhibitor. After our return to Australia, we ordered some samples and were delighted that they did the job perfectly. And should they be knocked over or fall down, there is no problem and no mess. So we decided to import PINGI into Australia. After a lot of organizing, we now have the PINGI basic range in stock.
I am sure PINGI will also be the answer to YOUR problems!
