After paying well over a hundred dollars for a humidifier, I got so tired of the sloppy job of cleaning slime out of it that I was almost ready to throw the thing away. After replacing its $15.00 filters (every 3 months) that seem to do about nothing, it didn't seem worth the cost and effort to keep it operating. The unit's instructions advised me not to use any additives but just clean the thing about every filling and keep replacing those filters as directed. So, since I was going to throw the thing out anyway, I tried one of these cartridges.

It worked. It's been about a month, and the slime is starting to come back, but that's supposed to be the effective life of the cartridge. The humidifier survives. I still have to clean it, but the task is now infrequent and easier.

So, it does what it's supposed to do; does it for as long as it's supposed to do it; hasn't harmed the over-priced humidifier; and is good for the environment as long as it keeps this humidifier out of a landfill.

The cartridge costs about $5 and last only 20 days before the filter and the cartridge starting reek. However, I found that Holmes Bacteriastat cost

about $7 and could last for a season and it also extended the life of the filter.

My suggestion is to buy the Bacteriastat.

I love this product. The problem with most humidifiers is the high bacterial growth in the water. You can tell by the musty smell in the air from the dirty and contaminated water in the tray and in the tank. Clean steam has no odor. I am doing this review based on the specific humidifier machine I own, the Honeywell Model HCM 630. I live in NYC in an overheated apartment during the cold months. My husbands and I got a lot of cold, dry coughs, dry skin and nose bleeds from the heated dry air that was why I bought this machine two years ago to alleviate our suffering. There are three hidden maintenance steps that every humidifier owner must perform that the manufacturer of the humidifier usually did not mention in their instruction booklet in order to keep the humidifier hygienic. The first, one must keep the tank and the water scrupulously clean by scrubbing the inside of the tank, the inside of the lid while changing the water daily. The second, once a month, after cleaning the tank, you drop one of these Protec cartridges in the tank and let it do its work as it helps slow down growth and migration of mold, fungus, algae, and bacteria in the water and on the filter. The third and just as necessary as the other two, replace the big round filter monthly or as often as every two weeks especially if you keep the humidifier running 24/7. If you do all three steps regularly, you'll enjoy the clean steam that helps protect your mucus membranes from drying out (much healthier for all of us) during the winter months and one added bonus, not being zapped by static shocks when touching another person or a metallic object when the humidifier is operating.

I'm a medical professional and Mom of 3 kids. I researched this product extensively before using it. I thought I would share what I found: A clinical study was conducted in 2006, which showed this product was extremely effective at killing germs and mold (aka "slime") in humidifiers (Journal of Water and Health, vol 4.2, 2006). Also, it's shown to be very safe and 100% natural (based on natural silver technology...the active ingredient in the cartridge is actually used in many drinking water filters found at the "big box" stores.) One point to mention: it doesn't remove minerals. If you get stains in your humidifier from iron in your water you'll need a demineralization product for that (or use distilled water). This product does what it claims. We use it at home and I highly recommend it.

This is a great product! I was always tired of constantly cleaning our humidifiers with noxious bleach...even with the regular cleanings with bleach I noticed a slimy film on the inside of the humidifier within a week. This product just drops into the tank of any of our humidifiers so it's easy to use and I know it works since there's no more slimy film and the humidifier tank stays clean.

all mom's should have this.

This product seems to work very well and is certainly easy to use as it is merely dropped into the water tank. I have 2 humidifiers and 4 of the cleaner cartridges. At month-end, I remove the two in use and replace them with two new ones. I rinse off the used ones and put them aside to dry to use at the next month end.

BUT IT DOES! We bought a Honeywell humidifier and it came with a free cartridge. We tossed it in and forgot about it. A month and a half later, my husband decided to change the filter and, as the thirty day life of the cartridge had expired, he tossed it. We could not find a replacement in a local store, so we just didn't worry about getting another one. Two weeks later the humidifier started smelling toxic. We removed the cover and filter to find slime everywhere! After only two weeks! These little cartridges are definitely good investments, given the cost of filters these days!

These cartridges really do help keep down growth in the tank. I wouldn't run my daughter's humidifier without them anymore. People shouldn't assume, however, that they replace regular cleaning of the humidifier. I think they're a great adjunct to routine humidifier care.
