Question about Brookstone Pure-Ion (506840) Air Purifier
I have cleaned the filters in the dishwasher and by hand in the sink. Now when it blows air it smells like chlorine. Help!
Mine does too. Did a little research - I guess all air filters let out a little bit of ozone. Some describe the smell of ozone to be something like bleach yet others say it smells like geraniums or even "sparks" (like the sparks that come off of the bumper car ride at the fair...hmm...interesting). Not sure which to believe, but I know mine smells.
I found a manual talking about reducing this smell. Said the first couple of weeks are the worst of it, but if it still bothers you, you could install an "activiated carbon filter" down stream from the air filter, or go through complicated instructions (for whatever model they were talking about) to go into the of the machine and switch stuff around.
Both solutionssound complicated to me.
I'm just happy knowing the smell is normal and that it is actually working. Think I'll live with the smell.
