I’ve gone through my share of humidifiers having a 1 and 2 year old. Most cool mist humidifiers are IMPOSSIBE to clean and are disgusting within a few weeks. I would throw them out and just feel defeated. I might have completely geeked out when our Radha humidifiers arrived with their own cleaning brushes. Not only that, but they are really easy to clean and the water tank doesn’t really get much hard water build up or mold at all. Just the base- and even the hard to get around parts you can take off! The one problem I have had is that a couple of ours started making a loud sound- and I can’t put them on when my kids are sleeping. So I contacted customer service and got new ones delivered literally, the NEXT DAY. While we may have had one little set back- the benefits of this humidifier definitely outweigh the one con. Easy cleaning, (I clean with soap and hot water every 3 days), amazing customer service- I can honestly say my kids didn’t really get sick this winter- at least partly in thanks to this humidifier.
