Nothing is worse than a dry house. Not only does the dry air produce waves of static electricity, it can also lead to miserable nose and throat issues. Living in the Midwest, winters are excruciatingly dry. After just a few minutes on the coach, our clothes were clinging to us. It was uncomfortable, to say the least. In addition, my wife and I frequently woke up with sore throats; she was often awakened in the middle of the night from nosebleeds. We tried several different remedies before finding the Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier. We simply ran it at night while we slept. The results were instantaneous – no more nosebleeds or sore throats. We liked the results so much; we purchased another humidified for our living room. Once again, the results were amazing. No more static or miserably dry air. The best thing about the Vicks humidifier is that is runs very quietly, so it doesn’t disturb sleeping or watching television. In addition, it is simple to operate and very easy to clean. Anyone who suffers from dry air needs this product. It has truly changed our living environment. We are moving into a bigger house soon, and are already planning to purchase additional units. They are that good.
