Asda shoppers rush to buy 'perfect' device to tackle mould and condensation | The Sun

ASDA shoppers have been flocking to buy a "bargain" device that tackles mould and condensation.

The supermarket giant is selling a Russell Hobbs dehumidifier for £49.

It is 600ml and can extract up to 300ml of water a day.

Online, Asda said it is "perfect" for smaller rooms as it can be placed on window ledges and countertops.

The motor is quiet and comes with an auto cut-off function which means it'll stop operating once the tank is full.

Shoppers have been impressed with the product.

Hundreds of thousands of homes across England have condensation and mould problems. 

Mould and mildew occur when there is a large level of moisture in the air in the home.

The problem can cause unappealing patches to appear on your walls, and could even affect your health.
