Surviving Fall Allergies with #FiltreteFilters

I received free products in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

My family and I are allergy sufferers. If you read my blog regularly, then you already know that my daughter and I suffer the most. And since we stay at home more often and are stuck in the house more during the wintertime, controlling the airborne particles in our house is so important. Did you know that you can experience allergies year-round? You may notice watery eyes and runny noses more in the Spring and Fall. Experts are predicting that the 2013 allergy season to last longer this year, well into October and November, depending on the climate where you live. Earlier this year, CNN listed the Top 10 Worst U.S. Cities for Allergy Sufferers – is your city on the list? Thankfully mine is not, but that doesn't mean I haven't noticed them acting up.
Some tips to help reduce in door allergens include washing bedding more frequently, removing shoes at the door, washing hands & face as soon as you come in door, and of course changing your air filters.

  1. We've used these filter before! They're wonderful!

  2. I would love to use these filters but the builders of house made our furnace odd sized. We have to buy filters that we can cut to fit.

  3. We have to change our filters all the time (like every six weeks) in the fall to cut down on the dust and allergens. Maybe these would help...

  4. Um...I should probably replace our filters! I can't remember the last time I did that!

  5. As I've gotten older, the need to have your household filters changed is really important. I now have allergies to things I've never had before! Thanks for the post, and I'll remind my husband to change them again...

  6. My husband and I were JUST talking about needing to get one of these kinds of filters last night. Glad to know this one is good :)

  7. Oh these are great, when we owned our house we bought this is what we used. Now that we live in an apartment they take care of the filers and just use cheap ones. I can tell a difference because our house was never dusty that apartment always is, and I wake up stuffy every morning. I think I am going to go back to buying out own and replacing them. Oh I love the commercial too, he would make a great babysitter.


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
