Humidifier Filters and Mold

The filters get so disgusting and moldy in my humidifier,  of course I change them when they are gross.

However, I am wondering if anyone has any tips to help keep the filters clean longer.

  • I bought little antimicrobial balls that you drop in to the water tank.

    They seem to be working well, and they're inexpensive, so worth a shot.

  • My humidifier came with a bottle of stuff to prevent mold.   You just add a little bit when you fill it.   I'm sure they sell something like that in the store next to the humidifiers.  
  • We have one that doesn't use a filter.  It boils the water first which I guess eliminates the need for a filter. It's great.
