I have one of those stand alone air purifier towers, looks very similiar to the Sharper Image models, but smaller. Here's my problem and I'm the cause of the problem. I took the collection rod out to clean it and thought the wet cloth wasn't doing such a good job of getting rid of the dust and dirt. Ding-a-ling me used a wet paper towel that had a strong solution of Windex and extra ammonia to rid the rods of crud. Well, you guessed it, now the rods will not collect the dust. Have I ruined it completely, should I toss it, or just use it as a tall doorstop??? Any way to salvage this to make the rods attract and collect the dust now?
After everyone gets through pointing fingers at me and laughing, any help would be appreciated.
