A white dust is comming from my cool mist humidifier, is is dangerous to breathe?


Its probably just from the minerals in your water. If so you should be fine although it does make a bit of a mess around the house. If the white dust bothers you, fill your Hankscraft 240 with distillers water rather than tap water and the problem will go away.

The date - February 23, 2010 - 6 days ago, I purchased a Sunbeam Humidifier from my local Walmart - Lake Geneva, WI. I really thought I had made a wise purchase - very quite, and was raising the humidity...


Im not going to recomend a humidifier because I need one myself and have not went shopping yet.

I would like to opinionate an explination on the white haze.

The humidifier is putting moisture in the air -water is much much heavier than the air - water is much much heavier than dust particles also.

therefore my theory is that the moisture is combining with the dust or whatever is already in the air and then eventually settling. perhaps if this is correct you may want to do some checking around in your home or furnace ducking or even furnace filter. The dust could even be coming from a little pin hole in your clothes dryer exhaust hose.

Humidifier creates film on everything in the room it is in.


the white film is just dust particles from the unit. it's also a bit of condensation that is building up. the particles are not harmful. but it's nice to keep it clean after every use. also the film is coming from the vicks. that is normal. so nothing worry about as far as harming the childs air or anything.

White dust coming out of humidifier


A concern is minerals in the water. Impeller and ultrasonic designs send these minerals into the air. If the water in your area contains a lot of minerals, you will notice them as dust. The EPA does not issue health warnings about minerals in the air, but does recommend using low-mineral water (such as distilled water) in your humidifier. Many ultrasonic models feature a demineralization cartridge that filters minerals out of the water to prevent the dust.

Good Luck

Produces a ton of white dust... Why???


Your V5100N ultrasonic humidifier generates a fine mist by vibrating the water at an exremely high speed. The water doesn't actually evaporate until after the water mist is in the air. As the tiny water droplets evaporate in the air, the calcium and other minerals settle on your floors and furniture.

Humidifiers that evaporate the water in a filter wick, or with heat, do not generate dust because the water evaporates inside the unit and the calcium is trapped inside.

You can avoid the dust problem with your humidifier by using distilled water. Distilled water is available in most stores that sell bottled water in gallons...but be sure to choose "distilled" water, not "purified" water. Try the distilled water in your steam iron also...if you have one. It will last longer.

White dust


Suggest you try using distilled water in the Humidifier in the baby's room. If your seeing that much dust you must have heavy hard water in your borough, suggest you replace the filter more often & or Demineralization Cartrid if your not already doing so.
Hard water is tough on many things in your home. Washing clothing can produce dark & light spots, some rust in color. Build up of rust & minerals through out the water lines in home. Bad taste. Build up of white stains in glasses & the list goes on.
The best choice would be a filtering system to remove most if not all hard water as it enters your water lines. Many companies near you can help you remove this problem. Listed below is one such company.

Humidifier leaves film everywhere!


I talked to Kaz, a manufacturer of humidifiers, and they said this is referred to as "white dust". It's simply the minerals from your water settling on your furniture...I had to same problem so I called the manufacturer.

He said it's not dangerous but that I should use distilled water in my humidifier from now on since my water will always do that. He also stressed the importance of cleaning the unit weekly with a bleach and vinegar solution per the manufacturers specs.
