I have always had trouble with the paper filters getting to dirty. What i do is not expensive, and i have been doing it for about ten years. I take the white insulation that is used on house insulation,and i pull the 3 1/2 in material in half. then take a scissors and cut just enough to go around the paper filter and a little extra for overlap. wrap it around the vac filter and hold it in place with rubber bands in three ; places.The material for the 16 in. cavity is just the right size. I believe that the last roll was less than $10.00, and the roll is about three years old. It works really well, and the white J M is not irritating to the skin. Try it, and I'll bet you will like it.
