Using a humidifier is one of them. One of the first things doctors recommend when a child comes down with a cold is to use a humidifier, as this can help loosen congestion and soothe a sore throat. Proper humidification is especially important for children since their smaller nostrils get bunged up more easily.



More generally, the regular use of a humidifier can help keep you and your family healthy. Maintaining the right amount of moisture in your home improves the ability of your respiratory system to expel germs from the body. Proper humidity levels in the home can also ease other types of discomfort caused by dry winter air, such as a dry nose and throat, itchy skin, and dry eyes.

I don't think I've ever lived in an overly dry house. The problem I find is keeping the humidity down. I'd be careful you don't make things too damp and turn your cold into a chest infection. Maybe combine with a humidity meter.

Voted cold, not because I think humidifiers are useless because I have one at work and it's great for dry eyes at the PC, but because this is overpriced compared to others.

I have the Medisana one, and it can pump out mist twice as fast as this one so filling a much bigger room and is cheaper at £39 delivered from Amazon.

As for "Scent Pads", if you're that bothered then you can add essential oils directly to the tank.

And as an added bonus, it has a cool blue light (Can be turned off)

I'm not against destroying the environment when there is a need but just because your heating is on.. it's drying your home out? common sense says turn that thermostat down a degree or just leave a small bowl or damp towel near the heat source (provided it's not electric).

My home suffers from too much humidity (live near a lake and major river) and yes I have a dehumidifier and have used it once last year because when the climate has been reasonable I opened the windows.

I never said I use it every day. Just for a couple of days at a time when my little ones have trouble breathing due to colds. especially as my eldest has sinus issues. I find the humidity in my house be quite low in winter. I've tried towels on radiators, bowls of water, turning down the thermostat (its on fairly low anyway) etc but have found this helps best. When my son had croupe a few months ago, the doctor recommended it and it helped him recover once he was out of hospital.

So get down from your high horse.
