Filterqueen Defender Air Purifier

Updated on March 2, 2020

We bought this years ago from a Filterqueen representative. He came to give us a years worth of free cone filters for our Majestic. He gave me a 12 pack of filters.

I almost scoffed at him. Poor guy. This house was so dusty when we bought it, that I could have gone through a 12 pack in one day. I'm not kidding.

That, of course, was not his fault. The previous owner had renters, with two dogs, a few cats. I could almost guarantee that the renter was not a spectacular housekeeper, either.

Since our kids still lived here when we bought it, I thought I should check the filter. Our kids all moved out at the same time. 2009.

it is pretty simple. Turn it over and unscrew the knob. It releases a cap that holds a couple filters in place.

We run an air humidifier at night, so, maybe during day, we need to dedust the air?

The Filter Looks Good

So, let's run this bad boy.

I started it up in the bedroom. It started blowing since there was a cloud of dust now airborne, I took a picture.

Picture me, laying facedown on the bed, peering up at dust particles.

Click click click.

I noticed the dust particles getting fewer and fewer. Then I shut it off. Replugged in my vaporizer. Tomorrow. Tomorrow we will know for sure, when we wake up without plugged noses.

It's the next day. I feel a little better.

Tonight, when I get home, we will see how hubby feels. That will be the moment of truth.
