Can anyone recommend a good vaporizer or humidifier?

    I live in the desert and I have a terrible time with dry throat and I've gone thru a couple of different brands of vaporizers and haven't been happy with them. Has anyone here had any success? HELP!! :)

    We have the console humidifier that we got from Sears. It is a Kenmore brand and goes on sale about this time of year or later. You have to add a bacteriostat to the water everytime you fill it up. The model we have takes 2 filters, which we change 2 x during the winter sometimes.

    Different models hold different gallons of water. I think ours holds about 12 gallons. We just use it when I notice that my nose is drying out. It can do a lot of square feet. During really cold times we can have to fill it several times a day.

    The smaller ones have to be filled more often and cleaned unless there is some type of additive to put with the water.

    The console type may be more than you would need, though. I guess you could check out Sears online and see what they have and compare.

    To me it sounds like you need a humidifier more than a vaporizer.
