"Only the Rainbow combines the principle of Hydrodynamics (water in motion) and Aerodynamics (air in motion) to assure a cleaner home and a mechanical maid of many uses. It freshens the air, while it cleans by drowning the dust and dirt in water. Everything in the home is cleaned just as the dirty dishes and clothing are cleaned- using nature's terrific water filtering principle... water washed clean."
