Germophobia, Chapter 3
Hi. Remember me? The self-proclaimed germophobe? Well, I'm here to tell you about some exciting news in the world of antisepsis: the personal air cleanser from Brookstone. Meant for travel anywhere but especially useful on planes (where bad air abounds), this unit uses the same ionic technology found in their full-size air purifiers..
The Travel Ionic Air Purifier unit stands out from other, similar units that have been around for awhile primarily due to its compact size. Having used one of the monolithic-by-comparison units from another company, I can safely say that the discreet size of this one is most appreciated. No more being asked to stow my 'binoculars' when flying!
I'm not sure I'm neurotic enough to wear one of these all day, everyday, as the web site seems to suggest one should. Experience has proven them to cut down on all those nasty colds and bugs that every one seems to get from the gentle suffocation the airlines supply, though.
