Anyone know of a baby gemach (or any gemach) that would have humidifiers (in brooklyn)? My baby came down with a cold 🙁October 24, 2010 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #704911mghanooniMember
You can buy an inexpensive humidifier that makes warm steam for about $15-$20 at a drug store. They are the kind that you add a pinch or two of salt. When the water runs out, the thing stops working (until refilled), so it does not waste electricity.
I think it’s worth buying because they come in handy rather often. I find using a humidifier helpful during the winter even without having a cold.October 24, 2010 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #704912
where I live, i found them for more like $50. also, i heard a cold humidifier is better for colds (though we’ll take what we can get lol)???October 24, 2010 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #704913
I have a spare. Yours for free. Set it up with Yeshiva World.October 24, 2010 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #704914vnishmartemmeodMember
I think doctor’s don’t recommend warm humidifiers any more… (safety issues) – only the cool-mist ones. Which aren’t that expensive either… and work equally well.October 25, 2010 3:07 am at 3:07 am #704915

sms007, I am sorry, but no one has contacted me. I’d like to help you out but I don’t want to get kicked off this site, so I don’t know what to do.
Suggestions?October 27, 2010 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #704921October 27, 2010 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #704922tomim tihyeMember
About ten years ago, Dr. Shanik (Lakewood) told me that warm-mist humidifiers are breeding places for bacteria; he recommends cool-mist.October 27, 2010 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #704923
Tomim, bacteria can grow in humidifiers and vaporizers. It’s important to keep both kinds clean.October 31, 2010 2:48 am at 2:48 am #704924
