Adding moisture to the air helps soothe cold and cough symptoms for kids and adults
SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Humidifiers help provide temporary relief from cough and congestion, counteract the effects of harsh, dry air, and can bring temporary relief to dry skin, stuffy noses, and chapped lips – the three most irritating wintertime ailments, according to a new survey of U.S. moms, conducted by the makers of Vicks humidifiers. Just in time for cold and flu season, Vicks has launched three new humidifiers for families: the Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier, the Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier, and the Vicks Starry Night Cool Moisture Humidifier now in pink!
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a cool mist humidifier, such as the Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier or Vicks Starry Night, in nurseries and children's bedrooms during the winter months. Warm mist humidifiers, however, are an ideal option if you're looking for 95% bacteria-free water and the ability to use Vicks Vaposteam® for added comfort through soothing vapors. Both warm and cool mist humidifiers are effective at raising home relative humidity levels to the 40-60% range, which studies have shown can reduce influenza survival in the air and on commonly-touched surfaces like sink faucets, door handles, and countertops.
New Vicks humidifiers for fall / winter 2013 include:
For added, non-medicated comfort, all three models work with Vicks Soothing Vapors VapoPads, available in original Vicks menthol and Sleepy Time lavender and rosemary scents.
