Like fans and heaters, it has also come to attention that humidifiers have also de evolved over the years. Today's humidifiers not only do not last long, but they also require use of those water-wicking filters, which get all moldy and full of mildew after just 2 weeks of soaking up the water, and have to be replaced; eventually, even a heavy bleaching would prove ineffective as the mold fibers embed themselves totally into the actual fibers of the filter, not to mention the mold will also even weaken the filter's delicate latticed structure through decay and rot, create holes and indentations in the filter, and eventually cause the filter to unravel and fall completely apart. And filter replacements can get rather expensive!

So why bother with a filter humidifier that eventually starts blowing mold all over the place, when you can get yourself a nice vintage Hankscraft humidifier? Unlike today's crappy humidifiers, the vintage Hankscraft humidifiers require no filter at all, they blow tons of moisturizing mist into the air, and once in a while all they need is a nice washing and cleaning. One place you can quite easily find one is Ebay, however, they have been sold before at garage sales and flea markets.

But I've grown accustomed to dry, cracking, bleeding, chapped skin.

Thanks for the good advice. I guess it is time to try and get a humidifier. I get dry skin really easily when it's cold and dry. I don't like being warm either, so I'd like to have a cool home where it don't get cracked skin. I don't know why I hadn't thought of getting a humidifier earlier! http://www.coolmyhome.com/carrier-products/hu...
