3M Introduces Filtrete Whole House Air Fresheners

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Filtrete™ Brand from 3M is introducing a new way to create fresher-smelling air throughout the home with new Filtrete Whole House Air Fresheners.

Unlike candles and plug-in air fresheners that add fragrance to air in a particular room, Filtrete Whole House Air Fresheners release scented air to multiple rooms using the home’s forced-air heating and cooling system vents. Air passing through the filter is slowly and consistently scented for up to 30 days. The product is easy to apply – simply use the adhesive strip provided to stick the insert onto the frame of any 1-inch to 5-inch air filter.

Filtrete Whole House Air Fresheners are available in five scents – vanilla, floral, linen, cinnamon and berry — and can be replaced during a monthly check of a home’s air filter. It is recommended that air filters be changed at least every three months.

“Building on 3M’s promise of science and innovation, Filtrete Brand has been the leader in developing the next generation of air filters and accessories for more than two decades,” said Tom Herbrand, Global Business Unit Manager for Filtrete Brand at 3M. “We are continuously seeking ways to innovate in the category and are excited to share Whole House Air Fresheners.”

Filtrete Whole House Air Fresheners are available at select retailers nationwide at a suggested retail price of $5 - $6. Visit Filtrete.com for more information.
