I have 3 yr old triplet boys, I bought this about a yr or 2 ago for them because they get bloody noses often in the winter when the heat gets turned on N the air is dry, also for their cold symptoms. I LOVED the idea of it having the part to put the kaz or vicks vapor oil in it, that helped them and me alot! I found though that it doesnt work as well in a medium or larger sized room, they have their own smaller room now and it works awsome! I fill it every 24 hrs and rinse it everytime. my only problem with it is that it leaves this black stuff in the bottom (it says that its normal) but im curious as to what it is, and on the part that comes off, theres residue on the black part and its hard to clean it throroughly. I love it but im OCD about the cleanliness thing and a bit paranoid that it may be growing bacteria, I might buy a different one but overall it HAS helped!

A great price for a great product. This helps the air at my place and also is bacteria free steam heat which helps with skin and hair health. I recommend this to anyone with nasal problems or to prevent those dry nose and throat feelings during the winter months!

Good humidifier

This humidifier is easy to use and a breeze to keep clean. There is no fan blowing around drafty, dusty air -- just an internal heating element similar to an electric hot-pot. I have to add a good deal of salt to the water to generate enough steam, but that's no big deal as table salt is cheap. I've placed it on the floor in my living room, and it disperses enough moisture to effectively humidify my 1,600 square foot house which is great since my forced-air furnace doesn't have a built-in humidifier. I monitor the humidity level with a basic $8 hygrometer on a shelf in the living room, and I have no problem maintaining 40-45% indoor humidity even during the driest, coldest winter months. There are no filters that you have to replace every few months in this humidifier, like many others. Stay away from the "moisture-wick" type humidifiers -- they get you stuck buying $8-$10 replacement filters constantly that are nearly impossible to find in the stores.

Originally, I got this during a particularly bad bout of laryngitis. After I was back to healthy, I realized that I'd been sleeping better with it on at night. For someone that's used to snoring all night and waking up with a dry mouth, this has really turned that around completely. Not to mention the diffusing chamber at the front is perfect for essential oils!

I moved into an apartment last summer. When I started to use my heat, by furnace, I had really restless nights. I knew I needed a humidifier but I didn't want to pay $40+ for one. I found this and figured to give it a try. I love it! It was really cheap and works great. The light is kinda bright so I just taped part of a notecard over it. It is relatively quiet other than a soothing hum. At first it was annoying to have to clean it every day but I just rinse it out so it isn't really an inconvenience. I haven't been able to get it to last over 10 hours, maybe my water is just too hard. It has a cut off switch so you don't have to worry about it burning up if it does run out if water. It is a great buy and I strongly recommend it.

My sister and I both bought one of these when we were sick, and this product is amazing! Absolutely worth the money. Also, get the Vicks stuff that goes in the indent in front of the light (I don't remember the actual name, but it's usually stocked right next to this product at the stores). It's perfect for any room! A must buy!!!

We bought this when our 6 month old had a cold. It is GREAT! The warm vapors really opened up her stuffy head. We did not use the menthol packets as it was recommended by our Pediatrician not to. This unit is very easy to clean and as a first time mom I highly recommend this product!

A Couple of Tips

I have used these for years. At $13 they are great. I have garnered these tips: 1) Use baking soda rather than salt if needed. No chlorine smell. 2) Some of expensive humidifiers use a silver element to cut down on bacteria. I use a silver coin (pre 1965) like a half dollar in the bottom to preclude bacteria. Works for me.

I use this in a small music room to protect wooden musical instruments. To keep the humidity stable, I use a separate controller to turn it on and off. This lack of long duty cycle may be why mine has been trouble free.
