    You’re outside but you still want to be cool, so treat yourself to the Auramist Milo. The fan can cool down surrounding areas by 30F by spraying a fine mist of water around.

    The fan is rust resistant and is said to break down water to a microscopic level before it distributes it.

    It will set you back a bit though as it comes in at £199, but that is down from £249 – bargain.
