Last about a month which is great.

Unfortunately you can only do that once or twice because it is basically made of paper and will fall apart.

I seem to remember the original instructions were to clean the filter regularly. I don't have a problem with mold or slime buildup, but see they have a product for that.

I have very hard water and so quickly get a buildup of minerals left over as the water evaporates. To remove that, I simply pour some vinegar onto the filter from the top, while it's still in the machine. As the crust starts to soften (the vinegar dissolves the crust) I pour the liquid in the bottom of the machine into the sink, lay the filter down (it will now flatten without breaking) pour some more vinegar on it (probably 2 cups, total) and let it soak until it stops bubbling. Rinse good with water and it's ready to go again. I've used the same filter for several years. It is now finally disintegrating so I'm buying a new one.

This machine is for the bedroom. I also have a much larger one, different make, same type filter, large-room size, and use the same procedure for it.

This replacement filter does just the trick. I run my Vics V3100 on high every night and the filter lasts just under two months for me (the box states: "The Cool Mist Wicking Filter should be replaced about every two months, depending on use and local water hardness.") If the humidifier tank runs out of water while running, the filter will dry up completely until you add more water - I've found that this practice reduces the life of the filter.

Note: One point of confusion is how Amazon lists this item (as of 1/24/10). The title reads: "2 Filters (Pack of 3)" - actually, each box only contains 1 filter. The packaging is confusing as there's a big 2 on the top right of the box. However, if you look at the lower right corner of the box, in much smaller print you see "Contains 1 filter." So, in summary, you are ordering a total of 3 filters (1 Filter/box, Pack of 3 boxes).

I purchase these every year for my Vicks humidifier. I have spent way beyond what the machine itself cost me on filters. Each filter lasts about a month to 6 weeks before getting moldy and stops wicking the water. I only use the humidifier for about 4 months in the Winter, which a 3 pack of filters is good for. I would use it all year if I did not have to keep replacing the filters. If someone knows a better choice of longer lasting filters, please post.
12/9/08-Too bad this is the only place I have easily found these. I cannot believe they have gone up $10 in cost since I purchased them a year ago (11/30/07)!

They fit and work as expected. Just like any other humidifier filter, they need replacing after dirt and minerals build up. These filters work just like to filter that came with the original unit.

I'm tired of replacing filters every few weeks. They've created great, long-lasting machines and wind up nicking you for a few dollars every few weeks with filters. What a racket. Filter works fine. It's o.k. to buy. The whining about the price is free! :)

These things don't work remotely as well as teh filter which came with my Viks unit. I would have to replace the water with the orginal filter in the morning, these filters only help lift half the water of the old ones.

I've used a humidifier that requires these for the past three winters, and really am not happy with the entire situation. These last only a month or slightly longer before needing to be replaced, so they simply are way overpriced for what they provide.

It feels like I'm getting suckered by a racket. Just out of principal, I'd much rather buy a humidifier that's higher performing and spend the extra money there rather than having to deal with ordering two packs of these per winter. They're bulky to store and it's just a hassle.

Here's a few tricks to make your filter last longer. Like other readers the water in my area is high in hard mineral content as well as dust since I live in a desert climate. I'm dependent on running the filter 24/7 since I work at home. Without the humidifier my sinuses dry up quickly and become painful. After using the humidifier for a year now I've found that the filter 'dries' up quickly and fails to adequately work after a couple weeks of daily 24/7 use. Dirt, dust and mold also accelerate it's degeneration. Here's how I've addressed these problems:
1. Add a tablespoon of vinegar to the tank each time you fill it up. I use apple cider vinegar but white vinegar works just as well. Combine this with adding the Protec Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridge to the tank. The vinegar extends the life of the cartridge from 30 days to 6 months. Using both together significantly decreases the build up of mold.
2. On a weekly basis remove the water on the bottom of the filter basin because it fills up quickly with moldy dirty water. Fill the basin with a half inch of clean water and add one teaspoon of vinegar. Scrub the filter basin clean at least twice a month or more if needed.
3. With each tank reservoir fill up reverse the filter so that the water at the bottom of the filter now becomes the top of the filter and it will trickle down moistening the filter. If the filter is dry it will cease to activate the humidifier process. You will know this when seeing the water level remaining the same versus steadily dropping.
4. At the end of two weeks, since I use it daily 24/7, I wash the filter out with warm water. The instructions say you aren't supposed to do this but if you don't you will have a load of dust and dirt on the filter that makes it decompose.
