Whether you're on day two or 12 of self isolating, the time will soon come when you find yourself dreaming of fresh air. Yes, you can go outside for a walk. Yes, you're certainly allowed to chill in your back garden. But, if you're having to work from home and live in a block of flats, or your house isn't blessed with large floor to ceiling windows that open wide, you may start to feel a little claustrophobic soon. And there's the issue that having all the windows open means you have to wear 3 jumpers, two pairs of socks and thermal leggings under your jeans. Thanks, British weather. The only way to solve this problem? With an air purifier. Specifically, this one which is one sale at Amazon today for just £29.99.
