Reader Annie recently asked me this:
"I know you mentioned you had a mister or humidifier. Is there a difference, and is one better than the other? I have chronic allergic rhinitis with dry sinuses, not a picnic."Definitely NOT a picnic, Annie. Ouch.
Her timing with this question was good since I'm actually in the market for a new mister/humidifier type of thingie myself. In the past, I have used a cool mist humidifier in my bedroom, but have had some issues with the filter becoming clogged quickly with deposits from our tap water.
Mine used to look kind of like this until I pitched it into the garbage after buying multiple filters and struggling with cleaning the stupid thing:
I'm not certain that mine was exactly like this or manufactured by Vicks. Image above found here.
Have you used humidifiers? Do you prefer steam types or cool mist ones? Annie and I want to know.....
