Word! Humidifier

Humidifier

Say: hyoo-mih-duh-fy-er

If you get nosebleeds a lot or your nose often feels dry, it may be time to get a humidifier. A humidifier is a machine that makes the air around you a little wetter, so your nose and skin don't dry out as much. Your parent fills it with water and the humidifier pumps out a mist of moist air.
