    This stuff actually works. I was having trouble with constantly having to clean my Vicks cool mist humidifier…it would get scummy and the wicking filter would turn brownish and crusty. I used the drop in tank cleaning cartridges that were recommended by the manufacturer and they worked for maybe two weeks (the month of sanitizing action that was claimed was stretching it IMHO)…that’s just not good enough for me considering their price. I run my humidifiers CONSTANTLY in the winter and I was getting tired of replacing wicking filters and having to totally clean out the tray under the tank on a weekly basis – I’m a busy girl on a budget.
    Read the reviews for this product and decided to give it a try. It really works. I add 5ml to the tank each time I fill it up (once a day) and I see NO MORE SCUM/BIOFILMS forming in any part of the tray, on the filter, or in the tank. No discoloration. I wish I had a before picture but attached is how my wicking filter looks after AT LEAST a month of constant use…clean and moist. Before using this product after the same amount of time I would see discoloration always in the filter.
    Also I was pleased to see the large size of the bottle. I always expect to receive bottles of product that are much smaller than I had expected. This will last a long time – easily one winter and then some. I keep it right under the sink where I fill the tank along with a 5ml syringe ( I work in a lab). Easy peasy. Don’t waste time with anything else.
    ps. I don’t write reviews..so this product really impressed me

    As a microbiologist I’m always concerned about the health of my household since I know and understand quite a bit of how microorganisms get about. Through humidifiers is one way that can happen. A rich, moist, and slightly warmer environment like that in a humidifier is pretty much a playground for microbes including fungi and bacteria. Especially in the case of an ultrasonic humidifier like mine the microbes can be expelled pretty far and be able to land on surfaces or get inhaled. This treatment is a great find and worth every penny. The bottle says it’s corrosive, and it could possibly be since it is a strong base, but I haven’t had any issues with it. I would advise finding a 5 milliliter syringe and using that to put the treatment into your humidifier. They say about a capful (1/6th of an ounce) is what is needed for each gallon of water. The easiest method is just to translate that out to 5mL/gallon. Best thing about using a syringe is you don’t have to pour super carefully. Just search here on Amazon for a 5cc or 5ml syringe and just get the ones without needles. Works beautifully.

    I just finished my first bottle of this stuff.

    I was a little shocked at the toxic labelling. But then realised that is in the concentrated form straight out of the bottle. Like chlorine used in pools and drinking water. Chlorine is highly corrosive and deadly in the concentrated forms used in pools. Don’t eat it, don’t touch it, and try not to breath it. BUT, you dilute it with water and when controlled as directed, it’s fine.

    After using a full bottle, I feel confident the diluted form in the water and then the ever more diluted form that is in the air seems safe. But what do I know. Also, different liquids evaporate at different temperatures. So I wonder how much of the diluted chemicals even make it into the evaporated water.

    Either way, after 1 winter down, I didn’t notice any breathing issues, smells or other affects from the use of this product. And I even do cardio in my home where the humidifier works on the whole house.

    I did notice that if you add this before filling with water, it gets very foamy. So I fill with water first and then add this solution. No foaming.

    We also have a water softener for our home, so I don’t know if that has affected the efficiency or use of this product. I don’t have any proof, but the water seems clean and the tanks seem to stay clean longer and without build up. And my wicks seem to last a long time without build up. And no foul or chemical smells for me.
