While most of us are trying our best to enjoy the nice weather, whatever our lockdown situation, let's spare a thought for those less fortunate - the hayfever sufferers among us.
But all those symptoms we associate with hayfever - a runny nose, itchy eyes and throat - can apparently be eradicated and it won't even cost you £1.
Shoppers think they have found the perfect solution: hayfever wipes that cost just 99p. You can buy them online, so you don't have to queue for the shops with all that pollen floating around you.
Budget store Savers are selling the wipes, which are made by Nuage.
The website description reads: "Hay fever Relief Wipes removes and traps pollen other irritants while remaining on your face and hands to trap further pollen and irritants that are in the air for long term protection."
People have rushed to praise the product. One person wrote: "Most of my family have really bad hayfever and it works like magic! The wipes have a really nice smell that somehow gets rid of hayfever! Strongly recommend."
Another added: "Bought these for my daughter when horse riding as she tends to get itchy eyes.. perfect."
A third said: "These are a life saver for my little girl! She struggles so bad and these have made such a difference to her!"
With the Met Office forecasting a high pollen count over the weekend, you are probably also dreading going to bed tonight, especially if you or someone in your household suffers from hayfever.
As we know, people who have hay fever are allergic to pollen. During high pollen count periods, they experience itchy eyes and throat; sneezing; blocked or runny nose; red, watery eyes; headaches... the list goes on. Essentially it's like having an itchy cold that's caused by good weather, not a virus.

According to AllergyUK, hay fever (allergic rhinitis) affects between 10 and 30 percent of all adults, and up to 40 percent of children. Of those, up to 57 percent of adults have 'decreased cognitive function' and 'daytime fatigue' directly as a result of hay fever at night - which basically means you're shattered.
Keeping your windows shut at night and in the morning will help to keep that pesky pollen from floating in on the breeze. If you're feeling too hot, try to put your pillow case in the freezer before bed, or else try freezing a hot water bottle and taking it to bed with you.
Showering and washing your hair as soon as you get home will also help to keep pollen out of your bed and home - all helping towards that much-sought-after good night's sleep.
