Cool mist humidifiers… the safer choice.

Holiday Gift Guide Picks – For the Home

Winter is here in Seattle, and while we may be in our rainy season, many of us still use cool mist humidifiers as a precaution or because our children are fighting colds and flus.

Crane USA makes a line of adorable animal and character cool mist humidifiers. They are simply designed, which makes them super easy to clean. As a mom, that’s a real plus. Cool mist is also a safer choice for children, as warm mist may cause burns.

Humidifiers assist with a child’s breathing during the cold and flu season. They help relieve dry coughs, nasal congestion, chapped lips, dry skin, and nose bleeds. It has been recommended by the FDA that over-the-counter cough and cold medications not be given to children under six years old because of the risk of life-threatening side effects due to accidental overdoses. Sometimes no medicine is the best medicine!

Because cool mist humidifiers (and warm mist humidifiers) accumulate scale (mineral deposits) and promote the growth of microorganisms including bacteria and mold—it is extremely important to disinfect the humidifier at least once weekly. In fact, you should completely change your water on a daily basis.

Crane cool mist humidifiers are filter free, whisper quiet, easy to clean and best of all, affordable. Did I mention how super cute they were? Our little owl friend moisturizes the air and looks adorable at the same time. Not only that, but our sinuses are happy!

  1. I love our cool mist humidifier (Winnie the Pooh) but these look like they could be a little “older” versions!!

  2. Lisa Weidknecht says:

    OMG that owl is so cute. I must have him!

  3. Eliza Thornton says:

    These are so cool. I want one for my girls’ room. But at the same time I don’t know if my girls would leave it alone.

  4. We have 2 cool mist humidifiers that we run constantly and we love them.
    Thanks for the reminder to disinfect – forgot to on Sunday!
