Miele genuine Active Air Clean filters are designed to help remove odours by incorporating a special layer of active charcoal. These Filters are ideal for pet owners and smokers. For optimum performance and extended motor life there is Time Strip technology built into this filter. Activate the Time Strip when the filter is first installed, then replace it once the strip has completely changed colours.

I am disappointed that this odour removal filter is not longer lasting. I purchased my Meile in Jan and by June I noticed pet odour coming from vacuum. I change the bags regularly and feel that for the expense of almost 40.00 a pop plus the cost of bag changes it is going to be expensive to keep the odour away. I went with a bagged vacuum for this reason as I found my old Filter Queen was terrible for doggy odour.
Thanks for posting Carol, one suggestion is to add the Fresh Wave Vacuum Pearls to eliminate the odour at the source. We've found that some pets have a much stronger odour than others and using Fresh Wave will increase the life of your filter.
