The Rainbow vacuum is probably the most unique vacuum cleaner on the market. In the 1920s, John W. Necombe was intent on creating a bagless vacuum cleaner to keep the dust trapped inside the vacuum "bag" and not release it back into the air. He created "the separator," a unique design that used water instead of a bag to trap dust, dirt and debris inside a basin.

John Necombe took his invention and joined forces with Leslie H. Green, founder of the Rexair company (Rexair means "King of the Air,") in 1929 and began marketing the Rexair Cleaner. The Rainbow's unique design has been certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute Vacuum Cleaner Indoor Air Quality Testing Program as meeting the Carpet Industry Standard for, soil removal, dust containment and carpet appearance. The Rainbow has also been certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers as able to reduce air pollutants that contribute to poor indoor air quality. Rainbow vacuums include a HEPA filter for better cleaning, and attachments for versatility.
