If you're a victim to serious allergies, you're the kind of person that needs a heavy duty (read: serious triple-digit expensive) air purifiers. But for the rest of us with only mildly sensitive senses, this compact and modern air purifier from our favorite Scandinavian big-box store will do.

Like we said, this Ikea Patrull air purfier is not going to be the best appliance on the market. You get what you pay for—and at around $180, the Patrull won't compare to those $500+ models.

But it does protect our places against pollen, dust mites and smoke particles, all in an attractive, white and modern package. Plus it's low power, running 8-32 watts, and low noise, running at 30-45 decibels.

The catch? For now, we can only find it on Ikea's Swedish site (meaning it's actually 1,295 Kronor). But lets all cheers a $1.99 mass-manufactured glass at the hopes that the Patrull is the next big thing to hit Ikea's North American stores!
