Mr. Sinclair's comments are focused on selling filters. Washable electrostatic filters can have much higher MERV ratings than the disposable ones. So you are getting better air filtration for you and your furnace. The water from a washed furnace filter is no more toxic than the water you wash the floor or walls of your house. You flush or pour that down the drain. Anything will grow mold if you put it away damp. Let it dry out first, (Duh!) Over time, the disposables cost more than the washable, plus the cost of disposing and landfill issues. If you want higher filtration, spend less money, have a more environmentally friendly home, use a washable filter, clean it every 4-6 weeks and let it dry before you put it back in place.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I write a lot about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. Specifically, household tips and life hacks are my jam! I’m also a lifelong dog owner -- so I often share my favorite tips for living with dogs inside your home (including smart home design choices and dog-friendly decorating ideas). When I’m not cleaning, organizing, decorating, or fixing something… you'll always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
Yes, yes, I am a broken record. I stress this in every portable storage container review because it is the best upside ever for someone like me who hates driving and is terrified of hauling my giant stuff in a giant truck all by myself. Door to Door offers the option of storing your stuff at a facility and picking it up yourself (or having movers do it) or letting Door to Door transport the items.

Door to Door, which is based in Seattle, claims to have "revolutionized the self-storage industry" when it opened in 1996 and introduced the world to portable, containerized storage. When reading between the lines of what is written by the company on the website, you might notice that Door to Door feels it set the standard for the portable storage container industry, and it might feel slighted about not getting as much of the glory as some of its competitors do.
Safe, clean drinking water is one of the most important health concerns for families. Even in the United States, it is possible to get municipal drinking water that still has contaminants and the current direction of the EPA isn't helping and even though the water may technically meet the minimum safety requirements of the federal government, many contaminants are never tested for.  At BestFilters.com, customers will find the water filters that they need to ensure they have safe and clean water. Drinking water can be contaminated from a number of sources and with our water infrastructure problems, the water that leaves the water treatment facility may not be the same water at your tap. Ask the folks in Flint MI.  Chemical pesticides and other ground water pollutants can seep into the municipal water supply and find their way into the homes of residents. Over time, this can lead to serious health problems and lower the quality of life. The water filters at BestFilters.com keep most of these contaminants away from homeowners.
