Ok, it’s that time of year again…at least in those places with cold climates. You have to crank the heat again, but most of the time, that makes the air really dry. You get the dry cough, the dry nose, and the high heating bills (ok, that has nothing to do with this, personal gripe). Humidifiers help provide temporary relief from cough and congestion, counteract the effects of harsh, dry air. The makers of Vicks humidifiers conducted a new survey of US moms and found that dry skin, stuffy noses, and chapped lips are the three most irritating wintertime ailments. Guess what? Vicks humidifiers bring temporary relief for that as well!
Just in time for cold and flu season, Vicks has launched three new humidifiers for families: the Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier, the Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier, and the Vicks Starry Night Cool Moisture Humidifier (now in pink, too)!
If the Vicks survey wasn’t enough to entice you…the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a cool mist humidifier, such as the Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier or Vicks Starry Night, in nurseries and children’s bedrooms during the winter months. Warm mist humidifiers, however, are an ideal option if you’re looking for 95% bacteria-free water and the ability to use Vicks Vaposteam® for added comfort through soothing vapors. Both warm and cool mist humidifiers are effective at raising home relative humidity levels to the 40-60% range, which studies have shown can reduce influenza survival in the air and on commonly-touched surfaces like sink faucets, door handles, and countertops.
Here’s a breakdown of the new Vicks humidifiers for fall / winter 2013
- Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier (V4600) – Children and adults alike can now experience relief from cold and cough symptoms through the use of a humidifier that requires no filter! Offering hassle-free maintenance and operation, the new Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier is convenient to use, easy-to-clean, ultra-quiet and offers a 1.2 gallon tank which can run for up to 30 hours between fillings. The unit’s rubber feet take the worry out of scratching delicate surfaces.
- Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier (V750) – Featuring a soft glow nightlight and automatic shut-off for added safety, the new Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier heats water to produce a 95% bacteria-free steam vapor, releasing moist, warm air for fast, soothing relief from pesky cold and flu symptoms affecting airways and nasal passages.
- Pink Vicks Starry Night Cool Moisture Humidifier (V3700M-V) – Also available in purple, green, blue – and now pink – the Vicks Starry Night Humidifier is ideal for use in nurseries and children’s bedrooms. The humidifier releases cool moisture into the air and projects a multicolor changing, star-filled night’s sky on walls and the ceiling through the unit’s built-in, independently controlled projector.
