In recent years, air humidifiers have become a popular household appliance, particularly for dry climates or during colder months when central heating can dry up indoor air. While these devices are designed to hydrate indoor air and enhance overall well-being, several myths have circulated about their usage. We’re here to shed light on some common air humidifier myths you might have heard.
Myth 1: Humidifiers are only needed in Winter
One prevalent myth is that humidifiers are only needed during the winter when the air is dry. Maintaining proper humidity levels in the home is essential all year-round. The ClevaPure Salt Lamp & Humidifier helps create a balanced and comfortable environment, relieving dry skin, irritated eyes, and respiratory issues regardless of the season.
Myth 2: A humidifier is only needed if you’re sick
A humidifier can be of enormous benefit to help ease sore throats, dry coughs and itchy skin when there is illness about. But the ClevaPure Salt Lamp & Humidifier isn’t just for sickness. It can be used every day to humidify the air in your child’s room, helping them to breathe easily and sleep well.
Myth 3: Humidifiers aren’t suitable for babies
A humidifier can be used for people of all ages and babies in particular can benefit from their use as their little lungs are so fragile. Here is what one parent said when she used it with her baby: “This product honestly changed the health of our baby within hours of being turned on. It loosened all the mucus from birth, and he is a different child now.” – Kim S.
Myth 4: All humidifiers do the same thing
While the main function of all humidifiers is to hydrate the air, the ClevaPure Salt Lamp & Humidifier goes a step further by being multi-functional. Not only does it humidify the air, the Himalayan Salt Crystals emit a warm, soothing ‘melatonin-friendly’ glow which invites sleep for your little ones. The ClevaPure Salt Lamp & Humidifier can also be used as an aromatherapy diffuser by adding a few drops of essential oils to the reservoir. Note: Always follow usage instructions carefully and choose baby-safe essential oils.
Myth #5: Humidifiers and Air Purifiers do the same thing
It’s a common misconception that Humidifiers and Air Purifiers do the same thing. However, they both carry out very different functions. A humidifier adds moisture to the air, helping to ease congestion, soothe sore throats and dry itchy skin. An Air Purifier, like the ClevaPure HEPA13 Air Purifier, filters the air, removing pollutants and asthma/allergy triggers.

Myth #6: Humidifiers don’t need to be cleaned
This is one of the most important myths to be debunked. Regular cleaning of the reservoir in your humidifier is of the greatest importance. If not regularly cleaned, bacteria can form, leading to health issues. Always use fresh water with each use and clean the reservoir every 3 days.
