Lloydspharmacy Ionising Air Purifier £2.99 @ Home Bargains

Found 11th Mar 2011
Just comeback from Home Bargains Caerphilly and picked up one of these for £2.99. With the hayfever season coming up it seems like a good buy considering you can still buy them on the Lloyds Pharmacy website for £19.99.

good find hot

These are great - we have 2 for my son who has hayfever...one upstairs in his bedroom and one downstairs in the living room.
I got mine forabout a tenner on offer a couple of years ago so £2.99 is a fantastic price!

bargain, i hope my local store has some!

I bought one from Lloyds when they were about a fiver. It doesn't seem to produce much ionisation. We used to have different brand and if you put it in a dusty room you could see the dust falling out of the air around it, this one doesn't seem to do anything.

What was the name of the other brand you had?

It was a Mountain Breeze, when we had ours they were "the" brand of ioniser but having googled it they don't seem to exist any more.

I think I'm going to make one bigclive.com/ion…htm That's a great site, some pretty crazy stuff from Clive.

Ours didn't seem to work very well either.. strangely enough bought that in Caerphilly too!

yeah i have something like this out of asda, cheap gimmick thing with a computer fan inside, doesnt do much, if its for a medical condition you should go for something in the £50-£100 with proper hepa air filther

How is this any use for hayfever? I get my hayfever at its worst outside, and I dont think I'll be carrying one of these around with me!

We've got two of these from our local Lloyds. They're not particularly well made, I agree about the computer fan comment ... but they do seem to ionise very well, judging from the tiny electric shocks we get off the living room radiators anytime the ioniser is on. But the fan noise is irritating, we'd have done better just getting a silent "non fan" ioniser instead.

But £2.99 ? Stonkingly good deal. H&R.

I don't think it is healthy to have ions in the air. In fact I think it is unhealthy.

Ions are in the air naturally, after a storm for example. I'm sure they are safe.

I've always used a Cleanaer ioniser which you buy refills for:

cleanaer.com/

You used to be able to buy them from Boots, but they seem to have stopped selling them now and replaced them with products from the Heaven Fresh range which I havn't tried but all look ugly.

I actually found them pretty good, they seemed to work. The products themselves are compact, look good and also the refills give off a subtle fragrance. The thing itself used to be £30 and the refills were about £8. Be careful if you buy them online as I've seen sites charge £80 for one.

I think Cleanaer have lost the plot. We have 5 of them dotted around the house but they were only £29.95 when we bought ours and that included the cart and batteries. Now charging £79.95 each is ridiculous.
They are good though.

massive waste of time.

Just put something white near it. If its working the ionised particulates will be attracted to it and stick. I have a Bionaire I left ionising without the fan blowing out. the units surface became visibly dirty. problem is I can't remember how long that took to maifest itself..sorry. just suck it and see.

Good Price but mine went back in the box when I brought mine....at full price!

The problem for me was that whenever it was switched on, and I had headphones in, it would crackle and buzz and the headphones would then give me an electric shock in my ear!

Thank you

These don't do anything, just placebo effect

Is that based on fact or opinion?
