Living in the desert, I’m still trying to get used to the dry air. I got lasik surgery because I couldn’t tolerate how dry my contacts would get. In the winter months, it never fails that we all get hit by the flu and several colds since my daughter is in school. My daughter and I both have asthma, so we’re very prone to Bronchitis, or for her it’s Croup. The doctor’s first advice is always “get a humidifier” and off I run to the store to buy another one. I’m not sure what it is about humidifiers, but they tend to only last 3 months in our household. They get a calcium build-up on them that absolutely can not be defeated and the filters absolutely gross me out. I end up changing them extremely often and I still feel that they harbor bacteria. I’d rather not use one, than not be 100% positive that it’s not blowing bacteria into the room. I found Gizmine’s Middle Colors Humidifier and was completely intrigued. Not only is this humidifier completely modern and an accent to the room, but it’s not big and bulky like all those other ones you find.
The Middle Colors Humidifier series from Japanese designer Takashi Hiroshi Tsuboi is a sleek tear-drop shaped is a simple ultrasonic humidifier that produces a steady mist of steam. It’s available in two sizes, small which delivers eight hours of mist, and large, which delivers a bigger blast for ten hours. It has a built in filter, so all you need to do is give it a rinse every 2 – 3 uses. They even sell aroma pads so that you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils and have the soothing scent fill the room. If you have a cold, load up a pad with eucalyptus to help the sinuses. This humidifier is so easy to use, my daughter puts it together. She gets such a huge kick out of seeing the steam come up the top. I just can’t believe how effective this is and it’s a quarter of the size of other eye-sore humidifiers. I’m completely sold on this humidifier. I’ll never purchase another one. We were hit with Bronchitis and Croup on New Years Eve and we’ve had this humidifier running every single day since and it’s helped us recover so much faster. Especially for those nasty middle of the night tickles in the throat. Hate those.
