Last fall MomCentral sent me a Filtrete water pitcher to test and review. We're still using it. I filter water for my coffee, to make juices from concentrate, and Chuck used some last weekend to mix up a delicious rum punch with fresh nutmeg grated on top. Oops, I'm getting off the subject.
The Filtrete water pitcher is good quality. I replaced the filter on top and kept using it; it's really working out well for us, providing filtered water for many uses and reducing the amount of bottled water we purchase.
Home air filters should be replaced regularly, too, and Filtrete (a 3M company) makes a high performance filter called the Elite Allergen Reduction Filter. Clean air is just one healthy home tip found on Filtrete's Clear Advantages site. If you're like me, you'll visit a site like this once, gather tips, and then forget to go back. Filtrete makes it easy, though; just subscribe to their eNewsletter. It's seasonal, so it won't clutter your inbox. The eNewsletter offers seasonal tips for air quality and even a reminder to change air filters regularly.
I did not get an air filter to test for this review. However, I did have a good introduction to the brand from my water filter experience. The Filtrete web page is full of good information and opportunities to buy their products if you can't find them locally. I found a Special Offers page, too, offering mail-in rebates and more. Filtrete is also on Twitter as (you guessed it) @Filtrete.
Thinking about allergens is making me sneezy. Just staring at my friendly pet rabbit, that loving and shedding little source of animal dander, and remembering the mold season coming soon (begone, snow!).... it's probably time to change the air filter at my house.
