    Default Vaporiser on the floor?

    I just bought a new vaporiser today to replace an old one. I'd always sat it on the bedside table or a low-ish shelf. Reading the instructions though it says not to place onto a piece of furniture and to use a rubber mat under it to protect the carpet.

    Does everyone really put them on the floor?

    Yep mine has always gone on the floor in a corner where we can't possibly trip on it.

    Mines on the floor but I hate it there because it means we have to leave our daughters door shut whenever she's awake. Thankfully the few times we've accidentally left it open, she's been more interested in kissing herself in the mirror then touching the vapouriser.

    Always put ours on the floor - the steam rises UP...so it's best to have it lower for that reason, as well as the safety of not having it somewhere where it can fall down.
    We have floorboards so don't need to put any mats down.

    Yep. On the floor on a towel, which I then use in the morning to wipe down walls and windows from all the water, grrrr - but that's another thread

    I don't need to wipe down at all. My MIL does. I wonder why? We both leave the bedroom door open.

    To OP, on the floor on a placemat. I turn it off when my youngest DS is awake in case he goes near it.

    Must depend on the house. We never needed to in our previous place but this one it's literally running down the walls and a pool under the window.
    This house is much larger and always cold so that prob explains it.
    The benefit from the steam on a congested bub is worth it though.
