Product Description

The Vicks Germ-Free Humidifier uses the germicidal power of ultraviolet light to deliver virtually 100% germ-free mist and feature an exclusive dual germicidal process which is independent laboratory tested. It humidifies the room with a comforting mist that is virtually 100% free of infectious bacteria, molds and spores. It's also safer for allergy and asthma sufferers because absolutely no white dust is produced; minerals do not enter the room air and settle on surfaces.

This product is soo amazing! I'm on of those people that will research an item for days before even dropping a single cent. Boy did my research pay off. We love this soo much in my daughters room that we are saving to buy one for our own. I love how the resevoirs are large enough that I can fill it and not worry about refilling for 2-3 days depending on how high I set the humidity level. The light is a little bright, however my little one finds it comforting, like a nightlight. We've never used the medicine cup, I'd rather slather my kid with Vicks rub... liquid medicine left in the cup is too risky in my opinion. One thing that I absolutely HATE about the machine is that the filters, the little round dics, are hard to find and we have hard water and after 3 mights of use it's a crusty, hard, mineralized biscuit!!! I wish we didn't have hard water and that the dics came in bulk packs.
I have never had a problem with mold or mildew. We even forgot water in the resevoirs for about 5 months and never saw a spot of mold/mildew. We do have a problem with cleaning it once a week, but our hard water contributes to that. I assumed that with the high heat levels and the "germ free" aspect with the lightbulb that mold and mildew would be eliminated.

We got this from our baby registry a year ago & I thought I'd really like it. It does have some good things about it, but generally speaking I do not think its worth the money & I would have returned it if it wasn't a gift. A few problems: It is difficult to clean, seems to get dirty quickly, & I have had difficulty finding replacement filters for it. It's also difficult to refill & has to be refilled in the tub which is a pain. In addition, as another reviewer posted, it leaks when you refill it! My husband seems to have less trouble with it than I do, but whenever I refill it it somehow just leaks out everywhere all over our hardwood floors. The most annoying thing I find about it is that sometimes it doesn't work. It appears that if you put the tanks in just slightly off, the humidifier doesn't refill properly so it just runs without working. I've discovered the best solution is to turn it off, and then tip the tank a bit to "encourage" the water to go into the humidifier (you'll hear the bubbles as it fills up), and then turn it on again.

The pros are that it has 2 tanks so it can stay on for a full 24 hours or 2 full nights. Also, when it is working it is very good at keeping the room humid. It is great in our daughter's nursery & has really helped alot when she's been sick. I also really like that it has an adjustable setting for different sized rooms.
Still, it's not worth the money & I am sure there are better humidifiers out there that aren't such a pain to use & clean.

It works for now...

By warp17

from Canaan, NH

Comments about Kaz Inc Vicks Germ Free Humidifier:

Seems to be a common problem, does anyone test these things? the motor starts grinding and grinding... sometimes first turn it on, or at random At night and won't stop until you turn it on and off multiple times. This time It started on the third day of using it. Otherwise everything seems to work fine.... tried two units so far (thinking maybe faulty unit) and always the same problem.

Disappointed

By Anabri

from Apache Junction, AZ

Comments about Kaz Inc Vicks Germ Free Humidifier:

Purchased in oct, 2014. Worked well for the first month, nice, quiet, and worked very well. Then the motor starting making a noise when the unit was turned on. I'd hafto turn it on and off muliple times in order for it to stop making noise. Then last week (jan 15, 2015) the unit just stopped working. I'd turn it on, and nothing. Sometimes I'd see the green light flicker on/off quickly.

Comments about Kaz Inc Vicks Germ Free Humidifier:

The light on it is not as bright as others say. Its fine and does not light up the whole room and wake my kids from the light. It is really loud though and that wakes them. I can not sleep with it on it wakes me up and I am not a light sleeper. Both my kids are light sleepers and we bought it for them and it wakes them up all night. We have had it for 3 years now and as long as we clean it after each use it has stayed clean. Although it is impossible to find filters for it.It came with 2 and those were used up after the first year. It takes a long time to warm up. You have to turn it on about 45min- 1 hour before you intend on using it. It takes forever before it actually starts working. We are looking for a new humidifier. One that hopefully doesn't take an hour to actually start doing what its suppose to and one that is quiet.

Comments about Kaz Inc Vicks Germ Free Humidifier:

Love this humiifier. I have been using two of these (one in each child's bedroom) for 4 years now. I tried 3 other humidifiers before buying these, and I found that all humidifiers on the market either spew mold or bacteria into the air or are difficult to clean. I like this humidifier because even though it requires cleaning every two weeks, it is easier to clean than the other 3 brands I tried, AND it spews much cleaner air into the room since it kills bacteria with the UV light bulb. Given that all the products in the market either spew bad stuff into the air or are difficult to clean, I give this one 5 stars because it spews the cleanest air and is relatively easy to clean. I keep a gallon of vinegar and a gallon of bleach in the closet, and every 2 weeks I let the base soak in a cup of vinegar and the two tanks soak in a light bleach solution for 20 minutes, then rinse them, refill them, and place them back in the bedrooms. It's easy and quick! The reviewers who complain about the bright blue light might lack a little creativity; they can simply place black electrical tape over the light if they don't like it. My children like it because it looks like a nightlight and they like the gurgling sound because it is soothing.

      Still works after 2 years and I'm not good about cleaning it out. Never gets mold. We did put black electrical tape over the light. Like that it holds 2 gallons. We are going to buy a second one for our newborn.

        I thought that the product was great. We began using it when my 6 month old had a cold. It helped tremendously in clearing her up but it also kept her up. The blue light on this machine is so bright it made her room glow brighter than a nightlight. I even taped the light with black electrical tape and it still glowed through. I had to return it to the store because she kept waking up and ready to party. It is also a bit noisy but again it did help clear her symptoms.

        Comments about Kaz Inc Vicks Germ Free Humidifier:

        Got this product at our shower and have loved it! This product worked so great for our little guy after he was born and got a cold that we bought one for my teenager when he got sick. The second one has now been passed on to my grandbaby and both worked great. I will say that it is a bit of a chore to clean but does not deposit minerals in the room like others and isn't that hard after the first couple of times. The light is a little bright since our little one shares our room, but we just taped a penny over it. We only use it when it is cold and dry out and adjust the level to keep the room from getting too hot. We had the first one for 2 1/2 years and used it for about 4 months a year without having to replace anything. For those who replace the mineral filter repeatedly, if you wash it with soap when you clean the metal cup weekly you won't have to replace it often. Still haven't had to replace ours at all! Also, use a tiny bit of vinegar to clean the metal boiling cup and it will be really easy if you have hard water like we do. It should never smell bad, so if it does there is something in your water. We fill ours using our Pur filter in the kitchen to cut way down on the deposits. VERY easy. We had a storm last night and the unit was plugged directly into the wall so it took a surge which blew out the buld and fried the unit. If it stops working and before you go out and buy a new buld, check that the cup is heating up since it will still run as long as the burned out bulb is still in place. I will be going out today and buying another but will definitely be plugging it into a power strip to protect it from surges! My fault and I will have to pay for it.
