This DOES work!! You have to put a little salt in the water per the instructions. The times I didn't put salt in it, hardly any steam came out. The salt helps to make the steam. It takes 15-30 minutes to start steaming and one fill of water steams for 12-18 hours, probably depends how dry the air is. Also, if you have hard water, the mineral deposits can clog it, you just have to rinse it out. It's not that difficult. I have one of these at home and another at our mountain cabin where the air gets really dry, and this works great! I had tried 2 other models including a cool mist humidifier, those were $50-75! I couldn't believe it when this cheap one worked better than those, and it makes almost no sound at all.

I was skeptical when purchasing this due to reading other reviews, but figured for the money I would give it a shot. I should have listened to the others. We used this in a small master bedroom, and I could not tell if it was on. Yes, one reason is because it is very quiet, but mostly because it doesn't do anything! I'm an intelligent man, and very handy, so I know I did everything correctly, it just doesn't work. After a month we gave it to Goodwill and bought a larger one which works like a charm. Save your money and invest in something larger.

Comments about Vicks Vaporizer with Nightlight, 1 ea:

We were looking for a good (budget!) steamer for our son's room for our dry Minnesota winters. We could not afford a $35+ one, but were worried about the reviews on this one. We bought it anyway and are thrilled. As long as you follow the instructions (written all over the product!) to add a little salt if it isn't steaming, it works great. We've had it for several months now and have used it quite a few times. For some reason the used water is black, but that's not really a big deal.

          Comments about Vicks Vaporizer with Nightlight, 1 ea:

          This product works well, especially for the price. You can have it run on a slow small steam or a very aggressive steam, depending the size of the room and purpose. I prefer the slow steam for the use at night in the kid's bedroom. To have a more aggressive steam, add salt to the water. If you don't, it takes awhile to begin steaming, but it is a nice slow and steady steam. There must be enough water in the tank too, because as it runs down to about 1/4 tank, the water is no longer high enough to make the steam. I recommend this for those cost conscious people.

          Comments about Vicks Vaporizer with Nightlight, 1 ea:

          When we first moved to the dry mountains, we bought two or three different (and expensive) humidifiers. Each one was returned b/c it would not sufficiently moisten our dry winter air. After speaking with many local friends, we opted for the less expensive, bare-bones basic Vicks, and it works great!
          Like other reviewers have said, we thought it was a lemon when we first brought it home, but after adding about 1/2 tsp of salt to the tank, it picked right up. Don't have to add salt every time, especially if you don't empty the tank every time you refill. We bought a second one during our second winter (one for master, one for nursery), and both are still going strong.

          It worked the first time I turned it on. After that, it doesn't work, doesn't do anything. What a waste of money. Listen to all the reviewers who will tell you the same thing and look for another product.

                  I read several reviews before purchasing this, and figured that the people who said it didn't work must have been picky or done something wrong. I was wrong. I used this for about a month before giving it to Goodwill. We used it only in our small bedroom, and it did not do a thing! Spend a little more and buy something better!
