The Lowest Maintenance Germ Free Cool Mist Humidifier

Everyone in my family needs a cool mist humidifier to sleep well at night.  I've had a few over the past few years ranging in price and finally found a favorite!

Here is what I like about the this Germ Free Cool Mist Humidifier:

  • It's super affordable (see price under image below). This one costs a fraction of the price of others that I've tried and I like it so much better!  
  • It's low maintenance any sanitary -- the reservoir and tray are both dishwasher safe, which definitely beats cleaning by hand with vinegar (though I do clean the cap by hand with vinegar).  
  • It's quiet (all you hear is a quiet fan)
  • It doesn't emit any light

I like to place one of these mats underneath just in case of any spills.

Make sure to read the instructions before using -- in particular, you will need to wet the filter before use and will also need to change the filter every few weeks.  

The only other humidifier I'd consider at this point is the Dyson was it is so much more expensive!  I do love my Dyson v8 cordless vacuum (see my review here).
