For some reason, this year, the air seems dryer than normal and I am looking like a dried out old prune. Old being the key word.
Last year, we went and bought a humidifier. It was suppose to be very quiet. Let me tell you... they do not know what quiet is. I wear ear plugs because my Hubs snores like Fred Flintstone. Do you know I could hear the racket the Humidifier made even with ear plugs. So we took that back and tried another.... it was worse than the first one. So, needless to say, I didn't have a humidifier in my bedroom.
This year, I went out and bought another Humidifier
I found this one.... made by Vicks. It is not super quiet but doesn't sound like a jet taking off in our bedroom.
This was quiet enough that my Hubs could live with it and I could not hear it with my ear plugs in. So everything is good, Right? Wrong..... Look below what it has done to my dresser.
I thought the room was getting dusty really fast, but thought maybe our filter in the basement needed cleaning. Hubs changed the furnace filter and still more dust.
UPDATE:: I did send Vicks an email and here is the response I received..... I really am not happy about the response. When you put your name on something, you should stand behind it.
Thanks for contacting P&G, Terry.

I hope this helps.
So I contactec Kaz. They were sorry and ask if the dust on the dresser wiped off. I told them yes and I have not heard a thing from them since.
They did tell me I had to use distilled water..... I go through over a gallon a day.... This humidifier is proving to be a very expensive purchase and I will never make this mistake again. Also, I will never by a Vicks product because I feel they do not stand behind the products they sell. If your name is on something..... fix the problem!!!!!
Oh... Put it near a register and you might need more than one in a room.
