The UniBond Aero 360 Pure Moisture Absorber is an inexpensive and practical device for removing moisture and preventing condensation, damp and mould. You can use it to make your home a healthier place.
How does it work?
The Aero 360 works by absorbing moisture through a suspended refill tab as it passes the device. It’s designed aerodynamically to encourage air to circulate and flow through the tab. The tab is similar to a dishwasher tab. It’s made from chemicals which will help improve the smell of your home while also removing moisture. After passing through the tab, the moisture is stored in the bottom half of the device and you can then pour it down the sink or in the toilet through the drainage spout.
How to use it
The Aero 360 is constructed in two parts, both made of plastic. It comes assembled, but needs to be opened to put the tab in place. The plastic feels flimsy and you might worry about breaking it when you open it.
To open it, you push down where it says ‘OPEN’ on the top, and then the front comes open. You then need to remove the top half using the clasps at the side. The clasps feel particularly flimsy and are fiddly to open and close.
Next, open the plastic covering over the tab and use it as a glove to position the tab on the axle with the blue side positioned downwards against the axle. The tab weighs 450g and feels quite heavy compared to the plastic. Avoid touching the tab directly with your hands as it contains strong chemicals.
Once you’ve positioned the tab, close the top of the Aero 360 and position the device in a place of your choosing.
Where to put it
You should put the Aero 360 in the area of your home that is most affected by damp and condensation. The device works slowly and will only really reduce moisture in the room you put it in, so if your whole house is affected you should buy several Aero 360s or a more powerful electric dehumidifier.
Position the Aero 360 at least 10 cm from the nearest wall so that there is plenty of air circulation. Don’t put it next to a radiator or heater, as this will reduce its performance.
How quickly does it work?
The box states that users will get “the first drop within 12 hours”. I set the Aero 360 up in a damp room at 11 AM and noticed a small drop of liquid by 5 PM. If you use it in a room that is relatively dry it will take longer for moisture to accumulate in the bottom, though it shouldn’t take more than 24 hours.
The product is much slower at removing moisture than a dehumidifier, but on the plus side you can just set it up and forget about it until it needs emptying or the tab needs replacing. It will probably take at least a month before you need to empty the water.
How long does the tab last?
The Aero 360 comes with a 450g tab, which should last for 1-3 months. After that, you will need to buy refills, which come in Neutral, Lavender and Fruit Sensation varieties. You can buy Aero 360 refills on Amazon here.
Pros of the Aero 360
The Unibond Aero 360 has several advantages when compared to an electric dehumidifier:
- Doesn’t use any electricity
- Set it and forget it—no need to worry about turning it off or programming it to come on at certain times
Cons of the Aero 360
- Works slowly
- Only works in a small area, so you’d need to buy several for a large home
- Plastic feels flimsy
- Fiddly to connect the two halves
Where to buy it
I bought the Aero 360 for a good price on Amazon. You can see it on Amazon here.
You can also buy this product from a several other places including Asda, Argos, Wilko, Tesco and Homebase.
Alternatives to consider
The most common complaint with the Unibond Aero 360 is that it works too slowly. If you need something more powerful and quick, you should consider buying an electric dehumidifier. A good and inexpensive dehumidifier is the Pro Breeze 500ml, which is one of the most popular dehumidifiers in the UK.
