    Safe Humidifiers for Children

     Safe Humidifiers for KidsWe've been keeping our eyes open for a warm mist humidifier made without polycarbonate plastic for quite a while and we kept coming back empty-handed.  Safe Mama reported that her search had been unsuccessful too.

    Last week our kids passed around a heavy duty cold, so I dug out our old standby Vicks humidifier.  I decided to check out the type of plastic used just in case it was made with safer plastic by some off chance.  I was surprised to find the recycling code #2 (HDPE) on the white base  and #5 (polypropylene) on the blue outer and black inner pieces.  All this time I had a great option sitting in my linen closet and didn't even know it!

    You can find the Vicks Warm Steam Humidifier for about $16.00.   There appears to be several other brands with options like Vicks, so we'll be checking into them and publishing a full list of BPA-free humidifiers soon.
