You may have to zoom in since I took a quick pic but up close it looks like dry liquid and thats why I assumed it was the humidifer.



Cover off


And me wiping it off which in fact comes over very easy and seems powder like. Has no smell also to it lol.


Edit: The white stuff was also not there on the day that I received it from Amazon on launch day. Noticed it about a week ago but as I said above thought it was the Vicks Rub in the humdifier and just moved it to another room. I'v wiped it down now and will see what happens in another month or so.

I doubt this gets the same amount of attention but this should be interesting to figure out what exactly this stuff is?

This looks like stuff that some air humidifiers spit out, it's extra visible on black things.

This. If it's a "COOL MIST" humidifer, that shit will leave a white, powdery residue all over the fucking place. I one running in my daughters room for a while. Everything had a chalky white substance all over it.

That is most likely from hard water in the humidifier. Used to have this happen all the time in my old home - took forever to figure it out. Try adding a small amount of distilled vinegar to the humidified and see if it helps (not responsible if your humidifier explodes :))

It's pretty common actually, if you have a cold or allergy issues it's very helpful.

The humidifier will circulate Vicks Vapor Rub throughout the air and keep you breathing easy all night long.

Two things that I get out of this story (and the other):

1.) There are liquids in consoles? (Capacitors or whatever else.)

2.) People put Vic's in humidifiers?

Both are brain twisters.

I used it when my kids were babies and would get a cold or congested or something. It has to be one of those hot humidifiers though, can't be a cool mist one.

Regarding the humidifier, does the OP have hard water?
