There's a chill in the air, and with the cooler months fast approaching and the nights getting longer, there's usually one thing that manages to creep in and torment us: mould.
That's the right, the winter months are not just known for bringing with them freezing temperatures and dark skies, they're known for causing an increase in mould and condensation in our homes, leading to damp air, smelly clothes and, in some cases, health problems.
The solution? A dehumidifier.
Designed to remove excess water in the air and, by doing so, reduce pollutants, damp and allergens, they can also help speed up laundry drying times by drawing moisture from wet washing draped over the likes of bannisters, radiators, clothes airers and chairs, while eliminating odours and preventing the growth of mould and mildew.
And luckily for you, we've just spotted a non-electric, budget-friendly option from Amazon. The UniBond AERO 360º Moisture Absorber, Ultra-Absorbent Dehumidifier is less than £10 and has rave reviews from over 35,000 happy shoppers.
Why we rate it
Small but mighty, it's compact and discreet, designed for rooms up to 20m² and has the ability to deliver 360° air circulation.
Inside there's moisture absorbing crystals and anti-odour agents along with a handy spill-prevention system, so even when it's full up with water, you won't need to worry about mopping up accidental spillages.
Once full, there's a spout for easy emptying and an indicator to signal when it needs to be refilled.
What the reviews say
Need more convincing? On Amazon there's over 35,000 reviews, 89% of which are four and five-star ratings. Customers have described it as great for "small spaces", and said that it makes "noticeable difference" in the amount of condensation on windows.
Others also said it's a "great alternative" to bulkier electronic dehumidifiers, along with boasting a filter that's easy to empty and clean.
Not stopping there, buyers have even described it as a "game changer" that gets rid of smells and dampness.
