Sharp FP-FM40E-B Air Purifier and Mosquito Catcher

Price: S$459

We kid you not. This Sharp Air Purifier is also a mosquito catcher. This makes absolute sense since the haze, as toxic as it is, hasn’t been effective in fogging the heck out of these blood suckers. The absolute black colour and LED UV light of the Sharp air purifier attracts mosquitoes, sucking them in and sticking them onto a glue sheet that’s replaced every month. Oh, and not to forget this thing removes particles as small as 2.5 microns and comes with a haze mode that emits a high dose of Plasmacluster ions for 10 minutes.

You’re definitely getting your money’s worth with the Dyson Pure Cool purifier fan. The silent tower fan eliminates ultrafine 0.1 micron particles, which is perfect for this insidious haze.

It’s also pretty easy to switch out the filters, which can last up to a year if you’re using it for 12 hours a day.
