My roommate Sam is obsessed with the scent of lavender. Every product we use has to be lavender scented. Our dish soap, laundry detergent, fabric softener and even bathroom products are lavender scented. I am not a fan of the scent, but I can live with it for the sake of my buddy. Last weekend, we realized that we needed to replace the air filter in the air conditioner. We had no filters on hand, so we went to the local hardware store. We found a whole much of options for cooling filters. The choices are endless. We had our choice between all sorts of different sizes. On a HEPA filter the holes are smaller. When the holes are smaller, the more particles it catches, ensuring cleaner air quality. However, these filters clog very quickly. The different filters are constructed out of various kinds of materials. There are washable air filter that can be cleaned every month. We could save money doing this. Sam wasn’t interested in any of that and headed straight to the scented air filters. They offered cooling filters that are lavender scented. My roommate was so tickled that we bought all the store had available. We have tons of lavender scented air filters on hand. If you have not tired out a scented air filter, don’t bother. The lavender scented air was okay for about a day. By the second day, the smell began to bother me. As dust penetrates the system, the lavender odor starts to smell unpleasant. By the end of the month, the house reeked of old, dead flowers. Sam and I both hate the air filter scent. Because we have a ton of the air filters on reserve and they were not cheap, we’ll be using them for a long time.
