Sturdy, reliable spa like humidifier - fabulous!
I purchased this Vicks mini humidifier some time ago now and I really wouldn't be without it. Its fab! And I love it! Im a very light sleeper and this is quiet enough to sleep with - even on full dial. The vapour output is just right for sleeping with. Great for coughs, dry sinuses etc. It actually feels great on a hot stuffy night to have a lovely cool mist coming down on you in drifts. Feels completely relaxing! The little pads that come with it I feel are too expensive, so I just drop my own oils on to the pads and just reuse them. Its not too big and fits nicely on most standard shelves and bedside tables. Some reviews have said about dirt in the resovoir? Or mould? Mine is used all the time and I have never had mould. Of course you have to clean it on occassion. I used cotton buds and a solution of bicarb and a little liquid soap and warm water. Its like anything that holds water, you'll need to keep it clean and not let hard water deposits build up in the resovoir. I use this most nights and would really miss it if it stopped working? Ive had it for over a year and it goes on most nights - its a real sturdy little humidifier that just keeps going. Wouldn't be without one now!
I Would Marry This If I Could
After losing sleep for the best part of three weeks due to coughing, I finally sought professional advice. Yes, I asked my social media friends for their miracle cures. "Get a humidifer!" they said. So along with an industrial quantity of balsam tissues, thyme teabags and a decongestant nasal spray, I did. This one. Which arrived in time for bed, and in time to give me the best night's sleep for, well, the best part of three weeks. Amazing. I did not use the Vicks smelly thing, just the steam, on about half way along the dial. Even in a very large room it worked perfectly. No more awake half the night coughing and snottering. It is not cheap, but I didn't have the time or energy to shop around. It is possibly the best investment I have made this year.
Certainly helps with babies breathing, coughing and sleeping.
Bought this for the 6 month old granddaughters bedroom when she started having her winter colds. Certainly helps with her breathing, coughing and sleeping. Safe because it is cool mist but you have to have the mist away from the bed otherwise it will leave the bedding damp. We put a towel down beneath the windowsill where this sits to catch the water droplets and keep the carpet underneath dry. We bought a hygrometer too, to keep an eye on the overall room humidity. This humidifier is perfect because you are able to add the Vicks paediatric Rosemary and Lavender scent pads without needing another plug socket. Please be aware that for babies 3 months old and above 4.5Kg, only the Rosemary and Lavender scent pads are recommended as the Menthol Vapopads are for use for children from 36 Months. This is advised on Vicks website and alongside the products sold by Amazon in the pictures provided.

If you have a water softener, read this
Millions of people have water softeners fitted but reviewers talk as though we don't exist The big problem with ultrasonic humidifiers is is that most of the impurities in the water get deposited as a fine white dust that coats everything, so the whole room needs cleaning almost continually. This happens whether a water softener is fitted or not and the dust in the air also produces stuffy sinuses. It does not happen with vaporising humidifiers like this one, where the impurities are left in the bottom of the tank and will also fur up the heating element. The water vapour is literally distilled water. With hard water, the deposits are limescale, which requires soaking in acids and probably hard brushing as well to dissolve it but with softened water, these ions have been replaced by sodium ones. The huge difference is that sodium is very readily soluble in water and I clean the heating element with a 1 inch paint brush dipped in water – it just takes a minute, that's all. So, if you have a water softener, this type of machine is the one to go for. You don't get everything in the room coated with dust, you get clean air to breathe and you don't have to struggle to clean the element with acids. In case you're in any doubt, I have no connection with the manufacturers or sellers and bought two of these humidifiers with my own money.
Much better then the cold mist humidifiers
Replaced my ultrasonic cold mist humidifier with this hot mist one. The ultrasonic humidifier failed to raise humidity levels for large rooms, as the cold mist would just fall to the ground leading to a wet floor. With this warm mist humidifier the mist rises up very fast, even at the highest setting, and is evenly distributed around the room, quickly raising humidity levels.
Works well - good value
This warm mist humidifier is excellent value for money. As it gets colder in the midst of the covid pandemic, every little cough causes worry even if it is caused by dryness in the air due to the central heating. I had this humidifier on for the last 3 nights and the itchiness in my throat ceased totally and I was able sleep all night without any throat discomfort at all. I didn’t use the Vicks pads because eucalyptus oil in the blue cup on top worked perfectly. Just a brief point on the labelling and apparently mistaken branding placed on this product: it is not MADE by Vicks. As indicated on the box (shown in the picture) is RECOMMENDED by Vicks, so it should not be identified on Amazon as Vicks product. We assumed it was both made and recommended by Vicks until my husband read the disclaimer on the paperwork inside. It said “Helen of Troy takes no responsibility...” So my husband called the customer service number to ask if this was some kind of misprint and we found out the manufacturer is a company named Helen Of Troy.

Love it. Bought it for my office which is very hot and dry during the winter. It sits on my desk and keeps the area around my desk humidified, I can feel it working on my dry throat and sinuses within 30 minutes. This is a small compact version of larger humidifiers. It doesn’t have any output controls, but if find that the o.5 litre capacity lasts around 5 -6 hours (although it’s switched off when I go for lunch). I empty the water each night and dry the bottom mechanism for storage in my desk drawer overnight. Love the fact that the power cable plugs into the humidifier, meaning I can take it away for cleaning/drying without dangling wires. I haven’t used the diffuser pads - not sure my colleagues would appreciate menthol all day. Excellent well made product with auto cut off when water runs out (red light shows on display). Portable enough to take on my holidays - I always find hotel rooms far too dry....... Brilliant.
This Vicks Personal Humidifier is a must have for those who have issues with their sinuses. It does it's job really well. I used it without VapoPads so far and it made me breathe a lot better. Good quality,as one'd expect from Vicks. Highly recommended product.
Good for asthma
This has cured my daughters cough! My 4 year old was always coming down with some kind of cough and then she was diagnosed with mild asthma. We were so used to her being up half the night coughing up phlegm but no more! This is the only thing that has helped her sleep through the night. I highly recommend this product.
