Arrow Product details

There is no cure for the common cold. True, but there are things that we can do as parents and caregivers to make children—and ourselves—feel better. Using a humidifier is one of them.

One of the first things doctors recommend when a child comes down with a cold is to use a humidifier, as this can help loosen congestion and soothe a sore throat. Proper humidification is especially important for children since their smaller nostrils get bunged up more easily.

More generally, the regular use of a humidifier can help keep you and your family healthy. Maintaining the right amount of moisture in your home improves the ability of your respiratory system to expel germs from the body. Proper humidity levels in the home can also ease other types of discomfort caused by dry winter air, such as a dry nose and throat, itchy skin, and dry eyes.

The Vicks Paediatric Germ Free Humidifier V3900 has a patented germ-killing UV light chamber which kills up to 99.9% of bacteria, mold and fungi in water. Set and forget this humidifier runs up to 24 hours on one filling (on low setting). Perfect for every day use in your home as low energy consumption keeps your electricity bill down and quiet operation makes this suitable to leave running overnight, or during the day while you are at work, rest or play. Great for every day use as no mist is produced as the evaporative technology works invisbly in your home.

How Evaporative Humidifiers work?

Evaporative Humidifiers are equipped with a special filter, also known as a wicking filter, which soaks up water. A fan draws dry air through the moistened filter and re-circulates humidified air back into the room. During this process the air is simultaneously washed, i.e. various dust and other air borne particles are retained to a certain extent in the wicking filter. You should change the filter under normal circumstances every 2 months. It is called an AntiMicrobial Filter for Vicks and Honeywell Evaporative and GermFree Humidifiers .

Evaporative Humidifiers automatically provide the right humidity level. This is known as the 'self regulating principle'. Due to physical law the air will only accept the amount of moisture it is able to hold at a particular temperature. There is no visible mist expelled from an Evaporative Humidifier and this is normal.

If desired a Vicks Scent pad can be used with the humidifier - one is included free. For peace of mind there is also 2 years warranty on this humidifier.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and waste batteries must never be placed in your waste disposal or recycling bins. WEEE is taken back free of charge at electrical retail outlets on a one-for-one like-for-like basis. There is a bin for small batteries in your local store. Local authority civic amenity facilities also take back WEEE and waste batteries free of charge. WEEE and waste battery recycling is free.

Vicks This was to use for my daughter how ever can not possibly use it at night it us just far too loud during the day is bad enough just to loud looks ok bigger then I thought would not buy again June 9, 2014
Awful product This item is awful, I wouldn't recommend to anyone. It is so noisy so not possible to have on through the night. The sponge inside needs constant cleaning and it has became faulty twice. Boots on the other hand were very helpful, replaced the first faulty one with a new one and exchanged rh second one for another humidifier September 15, 2015
Filters! Works great, helps my husbands sleep apnea and stuffy noses but finding original filters in the Uk is so hard! I have to order them from America the crucial air brand ones you get here are half the size and get moldy! Boots!! Sell the filters already! January 26, 2016
