Filter Replacement for Blueair 500-600 Series Air Purifiers
This is the best air cleaner/purifier that I was able to find. Have used for approximately 3 years and this product does a heck of a job. We have two dogs and many people have commented how odorless our house is, no evidence of dogs! [Product Purchased: 457-0442] (Posted on 8/21/11)
I use the Blueair filter 24/7. My allergies are showing improvement especially this time of year when they are the worst. (Posted on 12/5/11)
