Among other things, Sam is very blessed to have been born into an allergy-prone family. Bless his little heart, at not even two years old, he already has the puffy eyes, runny nose, and sneezes his mama and daddy have been living with for years.
On top of that, it seems like everywhere we turn these days there is another warning released about the harmful chemicals and allergens in our air. It's scary really.
Naturally, the mama-bear in me wants to do everything I can to protect my little man. I try to keep our house clean (try being the key word) using natural cleaners, we change our air filters regularly, use allergy-reducing pillow and mattress covers, and use an air purifier in our bedrooms. But, one area (where, I might add, we spend WAY too much time) that often gets neglected when it comes to clean air is the car...
|Precious little noses worth protecting.|
When FRAM® contacted me a few weeks ago about reviewing their air filter designed for the car, I jumped at the opportunity. Especially as I think about all the traveling we will be doing in our car this summer, I love the idea of breathing clean air in there too... Something I had honestly never thought about before, but is so important since - unlike in our house - I can't always control what we run into on the road.
According to their website, FRAM Fresh Breeze cabin air filters filter 98% of dust, dirt, and allergens and are the only cabin air filter to use ARM&HAMMER® baking soda to remove odors from the air entering your vehicle through the ventilation system.
The filter, which is made specifically for the make & model of your car and can be purchased online at Amazon.com, or at your local Walmart, O'Reilly Auto Parts, or Meijer, was SUPER easy to install by following the instructions provided online (here).
So easy even a toddler can do it! Haha, actually Jeff helped, and they had it in place through the passenger-side glove compartment in less than five minutes!
Once it was in place, I enjoyed knowing that I was taking just one more step in providing the healthiest lifestyle possible for our little family. Although the changes weren't immediately obvious, I was THRILLED when I realized that I could have the air conditioning on full blast and NOT smell the nasty cigarette smoke of the guy behind me at the stop light. That alone makes it worth it for me. #petpeeve
