    Only lasts about a month

    Works for about a month, then starts to change color, get bacteria, and smell. It's expensive to boot. But you're stuck--you have no choice--you have to use it if you have the Vicks 3100 humidifier. Based on what I've read, it's more economical and healthier to use a vaporizer since the hot water kills bacteria and there are no filters.

    Perfect for HCM350

    Found these when searching for replacement filters for our HCM350 humidifier since the OEMs apparently have quality issues. These are superior to the OEM filter that came with the HCM350, as they have a metal ring in the middle of the filter that helps it to keep its shape.

    You can find these all over the place, sometimes Best Buy has then for cheap. When they do it's a good deal. They only last a couple of months at a time, so stock up when a sale is running.

    Great filter for Vicks 3900

    A great filter if you follow directions. Don't leave it sit in water if you are not running your humidifier for any length of time. Keep it clean. I soak it in vinegar and water to clean it. Must be soaked in water for first time use.

    Good initially, but as days passed the filter becomes spongy sooner than 30 days even after proper maintenance. Good Overall for 30 days of extreme winter and not more than that.

    Filter is a must when running humidifier. If you order a humidifier don't forget the extra filters. If not, you can easily find them in most retail pharmacies. But shipping was FAST and FREE.
