    Default Do you have a humidifier or vapouriser?

    Do you have to keep the door to the room open to ensure the walls and ceiling don't start dripping with condensation?

    Also, do they effect the room temperature at all?

    I ended up getting the hippo one and it has been really good. Has really helped with ds2's congestion!

    I have the Vicks one and love it. I chose it because I like to use Vicks rather then giving medicine.

    I sit it outside the door as it does get quite stuffy if I don't.

    When ive had it in my room with the door shut I've woke up with it being stuffy and a bit warmer.

    I have had the one I bought for ds1 for 4yrs, I'm now using it for ds2. Don't know what brand it is but I leave one at MIL's house for our visits, they are 2 different brands and both work the same. I leave dh's door open slightly when it's on.
    I swear by them though, great for coughs, colds, asthma.

    I like using them but our doctor strongly discourages them because of mildew spores which grow and cause more illness than they fix.

    I couldn't have lived without ours in Melbourne but DD2 was always sick so I did wonder whether it was also making her sick by the mildew (I couldn't air the room enough in Melbourne winter).

    We don't use one anymore for this reason. just lots of chest rub.

Anyway these filters captures all the germ and bacterias, so I don't need to worry about the cleaning or contamination of air.!!! So cool
    I got a big one from mylivingstore.com.au. But they sell smaller one too!!
    So do these reduce the risk of bacteria from mildew?
