Forbes posted an article recently called “How To Travel Like Marie Kondo,” which I had to read. Marie Kondo is arguably one of the hottest stars of 2019 following the success of her popular Netflix series called Tidying up with Marie Kondo. Thanks to her and her KonMari Method, thrift shops and charities are thriving. Clothes and household goods are being donated across the country following KonMari clean-ups. Natalie and I have donated dozens of bags ourselves thanks to Marie.

But enough about Marie. The Forbes article featured a product called the Portable Air Purifier ($98 on Amazon), which is great for not only Marie but, it seems, all travelers. As Forbes writes, “We’ve all been in hotel rooms with unpleasant odors. If you’re lucky, you can switch rooms. But, if you simply don’t want to deal with the hassle or the hotel is booked solid, The Pure Company’s Portable Air Purifier will bring the life back into your travels by making the air feel cleaner. The device is lightweight, quiet and even has a built in aromatherapy pad that allows you to scent the room with your favorite essential oils.”

According to the Pure Company’s website, “Thunderstorms and waterfalls naturally infuse negative ions into the air, purifying it in the process. Our purifier uses negative ion technology to say so long to mold spores, bacteria and problem particles in the air that can make you sick. Plus, you’ll never need to replace the filter.”

The Portable Air Purifier is water-free, which make it simple to use without or without the aromatherapy feature. It’s compact (5″ x 2.5″) and lightweight (0.65lbs), and it’s also quiet, with a noise level below 30dB when running. It’s handcrafted in Oregon and was a 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Innovation Award Honoree. The Portable Air Purifier comes with a drawstring carrying case.
