Safety First 360 Humidifier Review

 

Babies can have a tough time breathing if the air is dry, believe me, I know from experience. The reason that the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier is recommended is due to the sheer fact that the two mist outlets rotate a full 360 degrees to ensure coverage throughout the entire nursery or bedroom. It’s much different than other humidifiers because most of them only blow mist out of the top rather than all around.

This is not the most favorable humidifier on the market right now because there have been many complaints of faulty performance. However, one product that is highly recommended is the Cool Mist Humidifier. It has many more features and there are minimal serious complaints.

Right off the bat, I am going to say that the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier is best for a budget buy. It does come with a lot of features that most users would love, but it also does have its flaws, which is what drops it down into a budget pick.

Pros

  • Up to 24 hours of mist
  • Easy to clean
  • Two mist outlets
  • Quiet operation
  • Filter-free

Cons

  • Water leaks out from where the screws are
  • Tank is small
  • Weak mist
  • Faulty cap

360 Degree Mist

The Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier provides 360 degree mist to ensure that your baby is eased from cold symptoms, dry skin, and itchy eyes.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that the indoor relative humidity level is raised to 30 to 50 percent, which can be achieved with a humidifier. This can help with dry sinuses, cracked lips, bloody noses, and can keep your baby’s nasal passages clear so that you don’t have to constantly suck their nose with one of those nasal bulbs.

The 360-degree mist is achieved through the two fully rotating mist outlets. With these, you can control the direction of the mist, allowing two children to be soothed at once. In the long run, this saves you from having to buy two separate humidifiers, saving you money.

Inconvenient Cleaning

Both the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the EPA state that when a dirty humidifier emits dirty vapor, it can lead to serious health problems, especially if you suffer from asthma and other allergies. Microbes can grow in the humidifier reservoirs, leading to bacteria being released into the mist.

With the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier , it has to be cleaned daily, according to many users. This can be an issue if you are on a tight schedule and don’t exactly have the time to clean it every day. Cleaning the humidifier involves emptying, rinsing, and drying the base of the reservoir. This seems to be too much for some users, making it an inconvenience for them.

Filter Free Tank

When products come with filters, it means that they are going to have to be replaced. Filters can be a hassle since they can be costly and they may be difficult to replace or clean. They get clogged with dirt and other debris, making it even more difficult for the product to properly run.

Fortunately, the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  doesn’t need the filter. This means that you don’t have to spend extra money on new filters or worry about cleaning it from all of the debris and other particles that it has collected.

However, a filter may not be a bad idea on other humidifiers because it can give you a better understanding of your water quality. Some humidifiers may only be able to use distilled water, which is what I would recommend for this particular humidifier. Since you can’t exactly see what the water quality is like, it’s best to use distilled or purified water to ensure no particles are clogging the machine.

Humidity Level Control

If your home has humidity levels that are over 60 percent, it’s likely that you may experience some health issues. Increased humidity can cause sweating, an increase in respiration, and maybe even altered blood circulation.

As mentioned earlier, the humidity level in your home should be between 30 and 50 percent for optimal health. With the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier , you have the ability to change the variable mist control levels that come from the device to ensure that it’s the right for your family.

LED Reminder Lights & Auto Shutoff

The Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  has convenient lights on it that tell you when it’s time to refill the tank. With some humidifiers, there’s nothing to tell you that it’s time to refill it. However, this one will automatically shut off once the water is out, avoiding the risk of burning out the unit.

These LED reminder lights are perfect for those who may not always remember that the tank needs water. Moms are very busy people, and these bright lights will grab their attention to ensure that they are complying with the proper use of the machine.

24-Hour Moisture

As opposed to some other machines, the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  lasts considerably longer. The machine can run for 24-hours on the low setting, giving your baby the soothing relief that they need throughout the night and day. When babies are sick, they tend to sleep longer. It works the same way as it does with adults. Fighting off a cold is hard work and it really takes a toll on your baby.   

Humidifiers are invaluable tools, and the less you have to do with them, the better they are. This 24-hour moisture feature is ideal during the cold and flu season. A 2009 study done by the National Academy of Sciences showed that flu germs thrived on dry air conditions. Maintaining the level of humidity in your home can help reduce the spread of germs.

Quiet Operation

Babies are sensitive to noises, especially when they are trying to sleep. It’s a fantastic feeling when you finally get to lay your baby down for the night and they don’t wake up. Unfortunately, they are very sensitive to sounds. So the slightest thing can wake them up, which is why this quiet operation feature is favorable.

The Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  features a convenient quiet operation due to the ultrasonic technology. These ultrasonic sounds in the humidifier aren’t audible to humans, but they are still very powerful. They can dislodge dirt from surfaces and break up particles from the built-in reservoir.

Warranty

Whenever you make a purchase, the manufacturer or seller gives you a promise that stands behind the product, which is the warranty. This warranty, by law, has to be available to you to read before you purchase the product. The coverage of the warranty depends on the manufacturer.

The Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  comes complete with a 1-year warranty. However, it does not cover normal wear and tear, accidents, abuse, negligence, failure due to not complying with the manual. It does cover manufacturer defects in materials and workmanship if the product is used in normal conditions.

Poor Construction

On most humidifiers, there is a cap that you use to fill the reservoir. This cap can be big or small. In the case of the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier , the cap is rather small. You have to take the cap off to fill the tank with the water. Unfortunately, there have been many reports of caps breaking.

If the cap is not on the device, it will not work properly. There have been multiple reports of these caps falling to pieces, making the device essentially useless. This is one of the major downfalls of this product.

User Experience Issues

There are several issues that make this product less appealing to users and decrease the user experience.

One of the major drawbacks that have been seen with this product is that the mist from the machine will saturate anything that is in front or under it. If this is a persistent problem, it can cause some mold issues. Mold is found in damp materials and may look like stains in a variety of colors. There may also be a musty smell. Mold can be inhaled and bury itself deep into the lungs. This increases the risk for respiratory problems.

The other issues that come with the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  is leaking. There have been multiple reports of leaking issues through the power cord and from the reservoir. You can monitor this issue by constantly checking the area around the humidifier. If you notice water, use that 1-year warranty.

 

The major downfalls of the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  are:

  • Leaking from various places creating safety hazards
  • Difficult to clean the reservoir
  • Poor construction of the reservoir cap

Bottom Line

Honestly, if you are looking for something affordable or if you’re in a pinch and need a humidifier fast, then the Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  would be a good fit for your nursery, bedroom, or any other room in the home that you are going to use it for. It effectively adds humidity to the room and you can always adjust the settings to make it more tolerable if it’s too high or too low.

The Safety First 360 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier  is an overall decent product. Sure, it has flaws, but which product doesn’t? It does the job it is supposed to and it comes with features that a lot of expensive humidifiers don’t. I would definitely recommend it for any nursery if you are on a budget.

Enjoy the evaporative technology of a wicking filter that makes it virtually impossible to over-humidify and cause excess moisture. QuietCare technology will help you sleep like a baby while you are healing congestion from colds or allergies.
