Please recommend a faucet filter for sinks (washing water) for a very chlorine-sensitive person.

Looking for a faucet filter (for a showerless tub & kitchen sink) that filters all chlorine/chlorine byproducts. Very, very chlorine sensitive. Has anyone found useful products for faucet water filtration? The chlorine in local tap water noticeably affects me when washing hands or dishes.

you may also want to check if your water supply contains chloramine as well.

when i was looking in to something similar a while back (a shower filter that would remove both chloramine and chlorine)...the best option seemed to be a 'Vitamin C' filter. Vitamin C filters can supposedly remove chloramine as well as chlorine.

Chris Kresser talked a bit about filtering chloramine and chlorine in this article is-your-daily-shower-making-you-sick. although it talks showers, all the info should be relevant i hope.

i don't know if Vitamin C filters are available for taps as well, i would assume so, to find out more, google... "vitamin c" filter

edit: i think that putting some vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate) in the sink or bath will also do the same job (or dissolve a tablet)...but do your own research
