What do you people do (if anything) to muffle the noise of your cool mist?

One is VERY close to the neighbours apt. Is there anything that can be done?

Yeah, and having a humidifier aint illegal. It's not like they're going to call the cops and be like "Ahh ... my neighbor seems to be operating what appears to be a cool mist humidifier." Even if they did the cop would do nothing about it. Never have I heard of anything even remotely close to that happening, haha.

"Ahh ... my neighbor seems to be operating what appears to be a cool mist humidifier."

:lol:

As I held the dark syringe close to my ear I heard a small voice, "If you build it, they will grow." With a quick jab at each jar, I injected two cc's in each. Soon enough, I was chomping on the sexiest handfull of nipples I had ever seen. A tear ran down my face. I could feel their warm touch soothing my soul. It was so beautiful that all I knew to do was cry out with laughter. All the love I had shown them was returned with the most concentrated and potent form of love known to man.
great sex

Well you see, the cool mist is ancient. And even if it was just a cool mist, why would someone be running it 24/7 in a closet? WHat if the neighbours were known as friends and they asked: whats that new noise thats eminating from your apartment closet??

Buy a new, quieter one or don't invite friends over.

I put a HEPA filter in front of my closet door where my cool mists/fans are. You can say its a HEPA or a fan or get one and have th noise they hear actually be that.

You can also put it in a large box and fill the box with polyfil. It will act as both a filter for incomming air and be like putting a pillow over your cool mist. Try and surround the whole thing in polyfil. Worked for some airpumps I used once.

The bearings are shot. Actually it is one "Sleve bearing", used because they are cheap to manufacture and last almost as long as true bearings. The noise you hear is the unbalanced motor/fan wobbling around, similar to a cheap bathroom fan after one year of use.

Go to any deep-discount warehouse or even a new store to find a newer model. Essentially the design hasn't changed in years, but the motors are a lot better and quieter.

I have found some mini ultrasonics for about $20.00, and have seen the cool-mist humidifiers for about $15.00.

Time to upgrade to the quieter and cheaper to operate "Poor Mans Pod".
