Can we talk?
Humidifiers are wonderful, but require regular cleaning to avoid all sorts of nasty buildup. Whether you have an ultrasonic or evaporative humidifier, you are supposed to clean it regularly.
But let’s be honest: even the most diligent humidifier user doesn’t clean the tank as often as recommended by the maker. And if you are like us, you may forget for a week (or two . . . or three) to clean it.
That’s where humidifier cleaners come in—just pop one into your humidifier tank and poof! The cleaner kills bacteria and mold growth, especially if you use tap water in your humidifier.
For the best budget-friendly humidifier cleaner, we liked KAX PC1F Protec humidifier cleaner. Yes, this is a super cute fish (kudos to the designer who thought of that idea) that kills nasty stuff. Here’s more:
What We Liked
• Easy to use.
• No harsh chemicals—this cleaner uses a small amount of silver as an antimicrobial to do the job.
• Super cute.
• Works for 30 days.
• Kills 99% of odor-causing bacteria, mold and algae growth.
What Needs Work
• Too big for smaller tank openings. Yes, the fish is cute, but some smaller humidifiers have narrow tanks . . . and it may not fit! The fish is 3″ wide by 7″ long.
• Sometimes knocks into the side of tank . . . which can be annoying if used in the bedroom (and you are a light sleeper).
