Air Conditioner Filters Can be DANGEROUS (Specifically, if you’re me)
Posted July 29, 2009on:
This has not been my week. Another story about real life, or maybe only mine! I wanted to clean the filter from my air conditioner and I took it out and dropped it into the sink. I thought it was a little ratty looking but what do I know? I ran cold water over it and started ringing it out by hand.
All of a sudden, my hands started hurting me like crazy and I took a good look at the “filter” it was just a sheet of fiberglass! Now both my hands were full of tiny shards of glass! I couldn’t touch anything for two days and I kept on soaking my hands and now I think most of them came out. I used my clip on glasses to find and pull out as many as I could.
