March 12, 2010, Newsletter Issue #146: Inexpensive air filter

Tip of the Week

If your basement has that damp, musty smell, you can make a cheap air filter that actually works! Buy two or three bags of charcoal (not the Match Light kind) and cut them open on the floor. Aim a fan at the bags and leave it for a couple of days. The charcoal not only removes the odor, but also helps dehumidify the air.
