I need advice on a new humidifier. [MI]
posted by Caviar to Shopping (7 answers total)
I currently have a Vornado humidifier. I don't like a number of things about it, even though it does a very good job of humidifying the room.
1) The whole thing gets very dirty. After a few runs, the bottom becomes covered with a slightly slimy red growth. Even bleaching every time I clean it out doesn't keep it from coming back. That can't be good.
2) Overall, the wicks get mildew spots frequently. That also can't be good.
3) The water containers, though they last a long time, are troublesome to fill, and need to be filled in the bathtub, as they don't fit under the sink. I'd prefer something that needs to be filled more often, but is easier to fill.
Any suggestions on humidifiers that work well, but don't have the above problems?
