It's summer and a humidifier is now more important than ever. These 10 are on sale now

You might not instinctively think of making sure you've got an air humidifier when the summer months roll around, but especially these days, it's a smart idea to keep in mind. With summer here, indoor humidity levels go way down — and that means more potential irritants for spiking skin allergies as well as more cold and flu germs floating through your air and on communal surfaces.

You can strike a blow against all the summer nasties with the use of a solid humidifier like any of these 10 models all available now at up to 72 percent off their regular price.
