...probably best to buy a purpose built ultrasonic vaporising humidifier. ...or boil a huge pan of new potatoes!
I'm tempted to get one as a humidifier since I'm hitting 30% humidity indoors with the heating on. It is however much cheaper to hang up some laundry to dry indoors and it's not wet long enough to go moldy.
I never understand why people in the UK buy these. Great in countries that are very dry, with humidity around 20%. In the UK, we're 40-50% humidity so in the summer, even more water in the air is exactly what you don't want! Making a room more humid stops your sweat from evaporating as effectively so you end up feeling more hot and clammy. You are better off buying a normal fan and putting a bottle of frozen water in front of it. It will cool the room better than one of these and not make it humid.
These evaporation coolers are total rubbish, I flogged my one on ebay to some other mug. Hardly cool at all and make it humid, instead of being just hot you end up both humid and hot which is the worst of all,

I missed out on the £12 humidifier lightning deal, but went for this one instead so I don't have to keep filling it up everyday. Cheers!
Depends on your needs. With heating on these days, many people find relative humidity dropping to 40% or even lower which for some can lead to drying out of their respiratory mucosal membranes, leading respiratory symptoms including triggering of asthma. We keep one (a Vicks model) on throughout winter at night in the bedrooms which keeps humidity around 55-60%, it has helped us no end. https://learn.allergyandair.com/humidifiers-asthma/
Perfect for mould
Ordered, thank you! Hope it helps with my dry/ cracked skin I get in the winter.
it just does the opposite. The place where I live is very dry and my skin starts flaking, so using it will be useful.
"This product is subject to specific safety warningsCauses serious eye damage" Hmm, a more humid house and serious eye damage. What's not to like.
USELESS. AVOID! It's noisy and doesn't help humidify the room. Threw it in the bin last year.

I have dehumidifiers to get the moisture out of the air and reduce condensation and prevent mould growth, If I get a humidifier too, do I create my very own tornado?
FYI, It's the same price at Argos. https://www.argos.co.uk/product/7261330

Haha no, although I do put a few drops into the diffuser because I think it will kill germs, keeping it clean (maybe just my head). I love the fragrance lamps, they’re my favourite thing
Just googled it, ah a fragrance burner lamp. I thought that was a humidifier you were talking about, there would’ve been a few light heads!
You made me doubt myself so I checked the bottles.... and oops it’s 90% isopropyl alcohol (confused)
The fragrance is 91% isopropyl alcohol, are you sure?
Think the humidifier is more likely to be used during sleep overnight, quite tricky to do that with a bowl. (shock) I know what you're getting at though, there are those nasal steamer gizmos that are supposed to be good for clearing sinuses etc but I have found that vicks or olbas oil in a bowl of boiling water works much better. Sometimes the old methods work the best. (y)

The report was about ultrasonic devices, that produce aerosol micro droplets. I'm afraid I'm not sure if this would apply to a regular ceramic oil burner, but as a general rule, it would be a good idea, if you're using this type of thing, to at least make sure it's scrupulously clean.
Thanks for that what about the oil diffuser s? Do they cause the sae thing? Thanks
Thank you for the advice, Was going to purchase for family member as stocking filler at that price.
Yep. Google humidifier sickness and do some research folks.
Once again, I'm putting my warning on ultrasonic misting devices. I bought one and thought it was the best invention as an air freshener, totally brilliant. So much so, I purchased another one of the same for elsewhere in the house the following week. I'd been ill and bed bound for a few days and started with what I felt was a throat infection. This got me questioning the safety of these machines and whether the one in my room could be responsible for how my throat was feeling. I scoured the internet and came across a report compiled by medical professionals in the US. The report looked at the use of these in elderly care environments. It concluded that these ultrasonic devices create aerosol droplets so tiny, if the devices are not kept surgically clean, they can cause harm to patients. They recommended, that to be safest, devices should be discarded after a few days. I note from the description that this model has antibacterial properties, which would lead one to believe that this may be safer than other models, I urge people to exercise caution, though, do your own research and think twice, especially if they were intending to gift it to a person who may be vulnerable. Also, if I was planning to have guests round this Christmas, I would not be wanting a machine on, that produces aerosol droplets and propels them in to the air, if you see where I'm going with this.

Internet web search engines are useful for finding out information about what humidifiers are for. I use 'Google' myself but there are many others available apparently.
When you sit inside with your heat on, it sucks up the moisture from the air. You'll need this to make sure that your house is not dry. Your nose will be especially grateful to you with some thing like this.
I'm guessing it has some sort of health/personal benefit.
Yeah but a humidifier will literally put moisture in your room. Why on earth outside of bone dry countries would you want that?
Drying cloths indoors and prevents mould, I would personally recommend Meaco especially there 25L model.
