Our Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The Seneo ultrasonic cool-mist humidifier model SUH2 is a remarkable unit for your sick baby or youngster due to colds or allergies. It has several functions of an air purifier, a night light, and an ionizer, that produces negative ions good for uplifting moods and is affordable.

In addition, you can use medicated liquids in the pullout tray on the back that has a small pad. These would be 100% pure essential oils (not included) to drop onto the pad.  Be careful when you pull the tray out—it does not have stops and can fall to the floor. Do not put oils into the water tank because it will corrode the parts—only put on the small pad.

The humidifier has a white base and sky blue top for continual moisture and is a top choice for cold and flu seasons. The durable heavy plastic is Bisphenol A (BPA-free). The shapely unit will fit any décor anywhere you use it.

The unit holds 2.6 liters (2.75 quarts) of water and will run up to 6 hours on one water tank filling. It will conveniently shut off automatically when the water is gone without a beeping noise that might awaken your baby. The unit mists 380 mL (12.85 ounces) of moisture each hour. This is a beneficial humidifier in a dry home environment with its cool mist moisture.

Use distilled or purified water because it is best for less cleaning of the unit. Distilled water costs about $1 at most grocery and dollar stores. Ordinary tap water puts lime scale and mineral deposits in the unit requiring more frequent cleanings. Tap water minerals also produce a white dust on your furniture. If you have a whole-house water purifier or reverse osmosis unit, use that water.

To clean the unit, use a little dish detergent with water and let it run 10 minutes. Do not use powdered laundry detergent or dishwasher detergents. You can also use rubbing alcohol or clear distilled vinegar with a cotton swab for the ring inside. Be very gentle at the ring area. Rinse well with cool water a few times and towel dry. Never leave water in the humidifier because it will cause mold to grow. Be sure it is clean when you store it in the original box with the Styrofoam bottom and top packing squares to hold it in place.

The humidifier has long-life LED lights in 7 colors that will rotate between each color of yellow, pink, white, and blue. You can operate the unit with or without lights and with or without mist. This humidifier is perfect for a baby and youngster’s room, your bedroom, living room, kitchen, office, a Yoga studio, at a massage or physical therapist’s studio, or at a physical therapy workspace. It will be most helpful at day care centers.

The humidifier helps nasal and sinus congestion for you, your babies, and youngsters. It will also help your plants thrive! It will keep your eyes from feeling dry, keep skin moist, and help with sore throats and coughs. You might want to put the unit on a tray or flat towel to keep moisture off the furniture, carpet, or floor. The mist is humidity adding moisture and it is wet!

There is a push button for turning the lights off, but the small red light stays on. Turn the knob for the intensity mist level you like best. There are no filters or wicks to change in this unit. You can make a small pad for the oils with cotton or gauze. The unit does not have rubber feet. You can purchase felt pads or rubber feet at your home center store or at Amazon here if you find you need them.

Plug the 4.3-foot UL listed 110/120-Volt, 50/60 Hz cord into a USA polarized outlet. Polarized has one prong on the cord end wider than the other prong, and the wall outlet hole will be bigger on the left side as you face it. The power is 30-Watts at 0.5-Amps. The mist capacity is 380mL/hour and the noise level is less than 35dB.

The dimensions are 12-inches tall x 7.5-inches wide and it weighs about 1.5 pounds.

Gift-wrapping is available for family and friends. You will receive a User’s Manual with detailed graphics, A/C cord, a 45-day money back guarantee, and an 18-month Warranty. If you have a defective unit, Seneo will replace it or refund your money.

As a youngster, I have vivid memories of walking through the large fantastic garden my dad kept for his entire life. It was there I learned about all the plants and the varied, important properties they can offer humanity. A cool morning misty walk down the meandering paths was a child’s delight, and something I still do to this day in my own sprawling gardens. While I have stepped back from the day-to-day managing of Wellness Appliances, I intend to continue contributing articles on subjects that matter to me from time to time. My days are largely filled volunteering at the local co-op, tooling in my vegetable and fragrance gardens (which I attempt to keep as a year-round gardens), writing, and being the leader of the pack to my two dogs Jacko and Lea. Thanks for the years of great readership! - Melissa
