How does the Drop differ from the Droplet?
The Drop is bigger and has a large tank capacity. The Drop capacity is 3.75L and the Droplet is 1.9L. The larger the tank, the longer your Humidifier will run for before needing to be filled. Both Drop and Droplet will run continuously through the night.
Why should I use a Humidifier?
The real question is why shouldn’t you? Humidifiers add essential moisture to indoor air, relieving congestion from the common cold and flu and soothing scratchy throats, dry skin and eyes, and irritated sinuses. Perfect for babies, adults, and everyone in between, a humidifier’s additional moisture thins the mucus in the sinuses, making it easier to breathe. And we know that when it comes down to your family’s health, you’re all about breathing easy! Even if you’refeeling great, our Crane Humidifiers are must-haves. From smooth skin to shiny hair to cared-for furniture, they keep you and your home looking beautiful and feeling comfortable. Now thats Better Living.
Humidifier or Vaporiser?
Humidifier is the name in the US for what is usually called a Vaporiser in New Zealand and Australia. It is important to note that Crane Adorable, Drop and Travel Humidifer/Vaporisers are cool mist Ultrasonic Vaporisers, not to be confused with warm mist or steam vaporisers. We use the terms Humidifer and Vaporiser interchangebly when referring to Crane products.
Which is Better: Warm Mist or Cool Mist?
The major difference is that a Warm Mist Humidifier is heating the water to produce steam vapor. Cool Mist Humidifiers use an Ultrasonic Nebulizer that vibrates at a very high frequency to produce an extra fine water mist. When it comes to humidifying a room, there is not much of a difference between the two types - both are equally effective. However, pediatricians and parents alike recommend Cool Mist Humidifiers for babies and children because there is no heating element, which could be a safety risk for a child. Cool Mist Humidifiers can also save money on energy costs.
Can I use Essential Oils with my Crane Vaporiser?
No. Traditional essential oils will damage the ultrasonic membrane in your humidifier and cause the plastic to break down over time.
Crane has developed a unique Humidifier Liquid which is safe for use in Crane Humidifiers.
However it is primarily the cool mist produced by the Crane Humidifiers that is so effective at providing relief for dry coughs, nasal congestion, and croup. Pediatricians recommend cool mist to relieve cold and flu symptoms, sooth the throat and reduce swelling.
Using essential oils is not required for the Crane humidifier to be effective in relieving these symptoms, and not recommended as over time oils will degrade the plastic and interfere with the operation of the ultrasonic membrane. For this reason we recommend that essential oils NOT be used with Crane humidifiers. A glass or ceramic diffuser is more suited for use with oils.
Please note Crane Humidifier Liquids are recommended from age 3 years upwards.
How is Humidifier Liquid different from essential oil?
Crane has specially developed Humidifier Liquid to be a water soluble liquid made from essential oil in an alcohol base. This unique formula is water soluble and will not damage your Crane ultrasonic Humidifier or Vaporiser.
Humidifiers are one of the most common Baby Registry items. Why does my Baby need one?
Newborns are Obligate Nasal Breathers, meaning that they can only breathe in through their nose for the first 4-6 months of their lives. Their nostrils are so small that even the tiniest clog can make everything from feeding to sleepingdifficult and frustrating. Perhaps moreimportantly, the American Academy of Pediatrics advises against using Over the Counter Cold Medication for children under the age of 6. For these reasons, pediatricians recommend using Cool Mist Humidifiers to relieve cold and flu symptoms in children.
What is the Best Way to Clean my Adorable Humidifier?
It’s simple. Regular cleaning will keep your humidifier running smoother, longer. We highly recommend emptying the water tank and basin after each use and disinfecting them at least once a week with water and a few capfuls of white vinegar. Please check the Manual for further instructions.
Do I need a Filter to run my Adorable Humidifier?
Nope. We’re all about simple, clean design, so our humidifiers work perfectly without a filter. One might be necessary if you notice a fine white dust collecting near your Adorable you can also switch to distilled water to lower the dust-building mineral content. Crane Demineralization Filters remove excess minerals, reducing the white dust so your air (andyour home) stays clean.
Please do not carry the water tank by the handle when it is filled with water. And do not use hot water to fill tank. Essential Oils cannot be used with this product - Only the Crane Humidifier Liquid.
