Does anyone know what the sticker tabs are for? I get them every time I purchase my bags but the instructions don't tell me what the stickers are for. Anyone know?

Yep, they're to put over the filter when you shower, etc. I've never used them since, for me, the filter clogs up from the inside anyway, not the outside.

Does anyone else have the problem of when the filter gets wet either from inside or outside the gas release doesn't work anymore at all.
The bag balloons up everytime ... is this the case and is there a way to avoid this?
