How to use a humidifier correctly
Best nano mist sprayer is also a humidifier. The humidifier is best to use pure water. If you want to achieve a more effective and direct humidification effect, a humidifier is a must. However, if we use the humidifier improperly, it may cause “humidification pneumonia”, such as upper respiratory tract infection, bronchitis, asthma, etc.
If we use an ultrasonic atomizing humidifier, we can not add tap water directly. We have to use pure water. Because tap water is “hard water”, it contains a variety of minerals as well as calcium and magnesium ions. Impurities in tap water may be blown into the air with water mist, causing indoor pollution. It will also produce white powder due to the presence of calcium and magnesium ions, which has a certain impact on the health of human respiratory tract.
There is also a pure humidifier on the market, most of which use molecular sieve evaporation technology. It can filter out calcium and magnesium ions in the water. This type of humidifier can directly add tap water, and the price is usually more expensive. However, the editor once bought a humidifier that can directly use tap water. But its manual also wrote that it is better to use pure water.
Do not put anything other than water in the humidifier. Do not add substances other than water to the humidifier, as it may be bad for the respiratory tract. For example, do not add vinegar, essential oil and perfumes to the humidifier. We inhale these ingredients into the lungs after spraying them out, which can easily induce respiratory diseases.
We should clean humidifiers frequently. There are usually some impurities in the humidifier, which is easy to breed bacteria. It is better to change the water of the humidifier every day and clean it every two or three days. If we do not use the humidifier for a long time, we should pour out the water and clean the inside of the humidifier. If there is a filter element, we should dry the filter element and then put it away.
