Vicks V790 Germ Free Humidifiers

Mineral Absorption Pads for Warm Mist Humidifiers – Warm mist humidifiers do not release fine, white mineral dust into the air like cool mist humidifiers do. Instead, the minerals remain trapped in the warm mist humidifier's hot water reservoir where, over time, they build up. Left unchecked, mineral buildup can eventually affect the performance of the humidifier, and may shorten its life. Use of a Mineral Absorption Pad placed in the bottom of the humidifier’s hot water reservoir traps and absorbs hard minerals, preventing the formation of hard scale buildup inside the unit. While the humidifier will run without a pad, more frequent cleaning will be required, especially in hard water areas.

Mineral absorption pads fit many humidifier models, including the Vicks V790 Germ Free Humidifier sold by National Allergy, the Honeywell HWM-500 Warm Moisture Humidifier, and most Slant Fin and Enviracaire humidifiers (models listed below). Pads generally last 2-4 weeks depending on the hardness of your water.  Comes in an economical 6-pack.

Mineral Absorption Pad Instructions:

Using mineral absorption pads plays a big role in preventing mineral buildup inside your humidifier. Although the humidifier can run without pads, it will need to be cleaned more frequently.

  • Consult your Owner's Manual for detailed instructions.
  • BEFORE starting humidifier, place a mineral absorption pad in the bottom of the hot water reservoir.
  • Pads generally last between 2-4 weeks. The harder your water, the more frequently you will need to change the pad. To determine if the pad needs to be changed, examine it AFTER the humidifier has cooled down to see if it is still soft and pliable. If it is hard and stiff, it should be replaced. Another way to tell if it's time to replace pad is when scale begins to build up on the interior of the hot water reservoir.
  • If pad appears to be disintegrating (usually due to use of "soft" water), then discontinue use of the pads.


If you have been operating your humidifier, CAUTION should be exercised when handling mineral absorption pads because the water in the reservoir will be HOT. It is best to let the unit cool down before handling the pad, and to use tweezers or long tongs when you do.
