Hi everyone! With this cold winter air, we’ve been struggling keeping the humidity up in our house. I have a small cool mist humidifier, but it’s hard to clean and not really raising the humidity much. I’ve seen a lot of parrot owners talking about this vicks steam vaporizer, and I happen to already own one but haven’t used it because I wasn’t sure if the heating element is Teflon / PTFE free. I’ve seen a lot of parrot owners saying they use this, so I was wondering if anyone knows for certain if this is safe? I will only use water, not the vicks rub inside of course.
Thanks!

Other recent/Older threads about this.

Always best to be sure if materials have changed, especially during a pandemic when businesses are having to make changes to continue offering their products.
