>>> Breathe cleaner and easier with Freka facewear

As the name suggests, this Japanese invention is an effective way of reducing your exposure to debilitating viruses including Influenza, but also keeps you protected from other nasty germs and mould lurking around your home.

Simply set your ultraviolet radiation intervals of 5, 15 or 30 minutes depending on the size of the job, or go the whole hog and set it to continuously to give your whole room a once over. Once you’ve chosen your setting simply hold the wand to the object and follow the instructions on the LED display screen that keeps things simple.

The influenza Saver runs on AA batteries with a usage time of up to 3 hours and weighing in at just 150g and small enough to fit in a drawer, this portable and lightweight wand is a useful tool to have on hand, especially during flu season, to give you some peace of mind. You can order your Influenza Saver online for just $24 (£17) here.
