    I take an old, large but still usable stew pot and fill nearly to the top with plain water. Bring the water to a full rolling boil and set my loudest timer for 20 minutes. I check on this pot constantly. My house fills with moisture and we all feel so much better and can breath clearly. after an hour or two, I empty the pot, rinse it out with vinegar, dry it and store it away until the next time we need extra moisture in our home. Cost? Running a burner on medium for an hour or so.....

    "use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough" -- That's all the CDC actually had to say on the subject.

    If you get an ultrasonic humidifier, buy distilled water. You won't have to clean it as often.

    Why would I want to add more moisture to an illness that results in a build up of moisture in the lungs.... I'll stick with my air purifier and dehumidifier. They keep my chest open and nasal passages clear.

    Aircare cool mist is the same as the Crane and is $10 cheaper. It helps me breathe better at night when the air is dry

    And the media finds another way to capitalize on the panic they keep stoking.

    I use a cool mist humidifier at night to ease allergy symptoms! Love it and a bonus, the moisture is good for your skin and hair!

    Put a large kettle of water on the stove and let it slowly boil. The steam from it will ad humidity to you home_DUH
