The Ridiculously Chic Humidifier That Saved Me From My Springtime Allergies (I Scored You a Discount!)
I’ve suffered from allergies for as long as I can remember, but like most things, they’ve gotten worse with age. And with the change of seasons, I’ve been sneezing and coughing like it’s my job. In fact, it was so bad that I was waking up in the middle of the night with a scratchy throat, so I knew it was time to find a solution. The obvious first step (after allergy medicine, of course)? A humidifier.
I’d thought about getting a humidifier for a while, but if you’ve seen my tiny studio apartment, I simply do not have a single square foot of space to spare. But then the editor-loved brand Vitruvi came to mind, and I remembered they have a compact, chic humidifier that basically doubles as art. After all, the key to making the most of a small space is making sure nothing is an eyesore.
Vitruvi was kind enough to come to my rescue and send me their Cloud Cool Mist Humidifier, and I immediately saw the benefits. It perfectly fits on top of my dresser next to my bed, so it’s close to me while I’m sleeping (and when my allergies tend to act up the most).
There are many reasons why I love this thing, but I’ll rave about just a few features. I love that it features a 1.5-liter removable water reservoir (complete with a handle), so it’s a breeze to refill in the sink. It has multiple settings, so you can control how powerful you want the mist to be. It operates on 8-, 12-, 16-, and 24-hour run times and shuts off automatically when it runs out of water. Because I use it while sleeping, it’s also essential that it’s whisper-quiet, too — 26.8db to be exact. It’s also the perfect size for my small abode — it mists up to 600 square feet. So, if you are lucky enough to have more space than this, you might want to invest in a couple of humidifiers.
The tiniest, but quite possibly my favorite part? Vitruvi also gave me their handy magnetic humidity sensor, which reads the temperature and humidity in my apartment. It even features a cute little face to let me know if the inside conditions are comfortable, so I know when I should turn my humidifier on or off. Game-changing! It’s sold separately, but at just $11 it’s worth every penny (especially for the laugh I get from the frowny face when it’s too cold or dry).
So, if you’re like me and didn’t want to sacrifice style for a clunky humidifier that’s powerful, Vitruvi’s Cloud Cool Mist Humidifier is just the thing you’ve been waiting for. Sure, do I still have allergies? Of course — especially with two cats that I am allergic to — but they’re certainly a lot better.
