Y’all, I have a confession. I have a slight issue with buying humidifier’s. I was never able to find one that lasts, doesn’t get disgusting mold, and is easy to keep clean and re-fill. Until now. Hellllooooo Crane!!! Where have you been all my life?? Oh, and did I mention our new humidifier is a UNICORN! #iloveunicorns
Ok, so it all started 3 years ago. I bought B a humidifier and 3 weeks later (even though I cleaned it religiously) I found MOLD! Yuck. This happened 4 more times. Even with a super expensive humidifier from Sharper Image. Maybe it was me, but I don’t think it was because I yet to have a problem with our Crane Cool Mist humidifier. Did I mention it’s a Unicorn already? I can’t even with all of this cuteness!!!!
Why I love it: We live in Chicago and it get’s incredibly dry in the winter. The Crane Cool Mist humidifier increases moisture in the room for the kiddos which gives them a better night sleep. The added moister relieves cough, cold, flu symptoms, etc. and is also amazing for Brody’s severe eczema! It helps with preventing his skin from getting too dry which is a HUGE deal for us.
What makes it better (in my opinion): Everything I listed above. Plus, It features Clean Control Antimicrobial Material in the Base is proven to help reduce mold and bacteria growth up to 99.96%* and has an Auto-Off function that activates when the tank is empty. It doesn’t need a filter which I LOVE and is easy to re-fill. That may sound silly but I actually tossed a humidifier because it was a giant PIA to re-fill! It’s More energy-efficient than a household light bulb – up to 45W and has a 1 year warranty. I seriously appreciate how easy this is to maintain and use. You will too 😉
Why the kids love it: Um, hello! It’s a UNICORN!! Unicorns aren’t your jam? Don’t worry. The Humidifier comes in 23 adorable animals and even a train! Brody requested the “choo-choo” for his room and I can’t blame him. It’s pretty cool! If you want something a little more simple, they have 22 different style to choose from in the Drop humidifier. Something for everything. I’m like a small child and will probably need to buy the Hello Kitty Humidifier for my room because it’s too darn cute! #dontjudgemeyouknowyouwantitoo
How I keep it clean: The best way to combat any ickiness is so clean it a few ties a week. I let the tank soak in white vinegar and water and clean the base the same way. I never let the humidifier sit for more than 3 days without a good cleaning. Stick to the manual and you will be good!
Con: No white noise setting. The Crane Cool Mist Humidifier is whisper quiet which is awesome, but I also like having the option of some white noise. Besides that, I love it!
Go get a Crane Humidifier!! Like, yesterday. They also have nifty little portable Humidifier’s for your desk, office, or to bring with you when you travel! If this were a political campaign, I would Vote for crane! 😉
