How to Use the Your Total Comfort™ Portable Humidifier
- Advanced Features
User friendly and easy to care for
Over-complicated humidifiers can make for a stressful user experience. The Total Comfort™ Portable Humidifier has a simple easy-to-use design and a straight forward care and cleaning process.
To adjust the mist output simply turn the on/off power/mist knob clockwise to increase the mist output, or counter clockwise to decrease it. The auto-shut off feature will kick in once the bottle is empty.
Cleaning your humidifier keeps it in working order. The humidifier reservoir should be cleaned every 2-3 weeks. Simply remove the water bottle mount and top cover, then wipe out the reservoir with a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water.
Overnight runtime and capacity
Set up and forget it for the whole night. A single 20 oz. or less water or soda bottle provides up to 9 hours of runtime. Make sure you use a sturdy plastic water bottle to help prevent leaking.
Tips and tricks to keep spilling to a minimum
- Make sure to gently twist the gray water bottle mount onto your bottle before attaching it to the unit
- Do not squeeze the water bottle at any time
- Check that the reservoir is empty before attaching the bottle
- Only use water bottles with a long neck, similar to a 20 oz. or less sturdy water or soda bottle--if the neck is too short, it may overflow
- Do not move the humidifier once the bottle is attached
- Keep the humidifier on a level surface. Use extension feet on bottom of unit for extra stability
- Ultrasonic technology allows for virtually silent operation and a visible, micro-fine cool mist
- Uses standard 20 oz. or less sturdy water or soda bottle instead of a refillable tank
- Provides up to 9 hours run time
- Adjustable mist control & intensity
- Features automatic shut off once the water bottle is empty
- Includes a compact travel bag when on the go

TotalComfort® Portable Humidifier is rated out of 5 by 31.Rated 1 out of 5 by Micki from Disappointment!!! I bought this item on Friday; I opened it on the next day, Saturday, to use it. It started to work and a few minutes later, less than 5 minutes, when I looked at it, I noticed no mist. So I turned it off and looked inside the reservoir. It was full of water and leaking. I reread my instructions and reassembled the water bottle to see if that was the problem. It still leaked. I believe the problem is when the water bottle rests upon the base, the spring inside the water bottle mount opens completely up and all the water empties into the reservoir. I would no recommend this product until the problem is fixed. Otherwise I believe it would be the ideal personal portable humidifier.Date published: 2019-05-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Min C from Great personal humidifier for desk I gave it 1 star about 2 months ago due to water leak. Customer service contacted me and replaced a new one. I must say I need to give it 5 star now. The new one does not leak one drop, it is compact and effective. Steam faces me on my desk, my eyes feel very comfortable with this humidifier on. I use it everyday in office. Just bought another one for my husband and plan to buy again for my home officeDate published: 2019-03-20Rated 1 out of 5 by LazFam4 from WASTE OF MONEY This is the 3rd time I bought this product. Works well for a few months and then is super loud and leaks. It is a PERFECT product for a bedside table when sick - but a complete waste of money.Date published: 2019-03-11Rated 1 out of 5 by Tammc from So disappointed! I neeeeed this personal humidifier and so wanted to figure out a solution. No matter what I do to adjust power/location, etc., or what bottle I use (tried about 5 versions), after the first use it leaks all over my furniture. If the bottle is the issue, here's an idea sell it with the humidifier.Date published: 2019-03-07Rated 1 out of 5 by DeboLinquere from Useless - lost money on defective product I bought this over a month ago, right before a multi-week trip. I set it up the first night and woke up to find it had the same amount of water as before. The unit is on, the blue light is on, I can feel air, but there is no vapor coming out. I brought it to the office where I can watch it. Occasionally vapor will come out for a few minutes, or will come out in puffs. I have to squeeze the bottle to get more water into the tank and even when the tank is full the vapor is unreliable at best. I would return except my trip lasted longer than the Target return policy. Lost money with nothing to show.Date published: 2019-03-01Rated 4 out of 5 by SSardine from Initially great, then leaky - awaiting replacement I got this for Christmas, but only started using it February 1. It worked great initially, but then started to leak out the entire bottle of water with no cause. I am very fond of this product and contacted Customer Service for a warranty replacement. They were GREAT at listening to the issue and offering me a free replacement. Totally willing to give this another chance. I HOPE it works well, because this little thing is a gang-buster for its size. I would recommend it with the understanding that IF it malfunctions, you should contact the company for a replacement within the warranty period.Date published: 2019-02-19Rated 2 out of 5 by Rob32 from Already leaking I have had this about 3 weeks and already leaking. Before leaking it was great, but now that it is leaking so quickly very disappointed.Date published: 2019-02-19Rated 5 out of 5 by jjjjjjjjjjibibib from It works great. I don't know what people are complaining about. If you are literate, then read the manual and do as follows, it is a great product, works perfect. Just clean it with vinegar every 3 weeks like the instruction says and you won't have any problem,Date published: 2019-02-18

Does this model turn on immediately when plugged into a power source or does it have a power switch?The humidifier has an on/off power switch, it does not turn on automatically.Date published: 2019-04-29
I just bought this item in the US. I would like to use it abroad. Do I need a converter or will an adapter work?We do not recommend using this product with a convertor. The humidifier needs to be plugged into a 120 volt household outlet.Date published: 2019-04-16
