HGG 2011 Gift-A-Day: Auto Air Tamer and PCI Generator ionizers

WHERE THE AIR IS FRESH AND CLEAN

Ah, Texas summers! Swelteringly hot and filled with allergens, but we still love it here. That doesn’t mean we have to suffer in silence. Everyone uses air conditioning, and you can improve your air quality — or that of a loved one — pretty efficiently, too, with air ionizers. The Auto AirTamer is perfect for closed-in spaces like a car, and comes with a lanyard that allows you to purify your air with negative ions that create an electrostatic field removing pollutants. For bigger jobs, the Sharp Plasmacluster Ion Generator suspends airborne microbes throughout a bedroom, letter you sleep without sneezing. It’s great to give to an allergic partner, but the real beneficiary is you. The Auto AirTamer is priced at $49.99; the Sharp PCI is priced at $299.

Available at AirTamer.com and SharpUSA.com.
