I remember as a child my mother always put the Wrights vaporiser in our bedroom whenever my sister or I had colds, coughs or congestion causing breathing difficulties and it was so effective she never used anything else. I now have a seven month old grand daughter with croup and I cannot believe this vaporiser is no longer available. Please can someone re-introduce this harmless and drug free device which brought so much relief to suffering children like me 50 years ago. There is nothing on the market to compare its effectiveness. Surely it must be beneficial for thousands of children particularly those suffering with asthma, bronchitis, and other chest infections ... Read the complete review

All 3 of my boys had terrible croup as babies, one of them also had asthma, which thankfully he's now grown out of. I'm not at all sure how we would have got through those dreadful nights without our trusty Wrights Vaporiser. Anyone whose child has ever had croup knows what a nightmare it can be, and how terrible it is listening to them trying to draw breath and how exhausting it is when they can't sleep for coughing because you can't either. I can't remember how we came across our first vaporiser - I have a feeling someone lent us one early on in my eldest child's life and finding it had such an amazing effect we went and bought our own. ...

The Wright's vaporiser originally came in the form of a unit which was heated up using a tea light candle. The special vaporiser fluid would be measured out and spooned into a block at the top of the unit which would soak up the liquid. The heat from the candle underneath would then heat up the block and release vapours into the room which would clear up any nasal or chest congestion up a treat. These were then replaced by electric versions which I believe have been reviewed by a lady in another opinion on this site. I went to read this opinion because I had some old candle lit vaporisers which my father-in-law had kept from when my husband was young and I wanted to . Read the complete review

Come on someone - please reintroduce something like t Wright's vapouriser. I've just had need to drag mine from the cupboard - thankfully it was still there - and use the last remaining drops of fluid. I've been keeping it for an absolute emergency. Struggling with pleural inflamation and a painful cough nothing else had given any relief! 2 nights with the vapouriser have truly helped to shift it all. PLEASE come back on the ...

Wrights Vaporiser - I have just got it out the cupboard and it's a while since I last needed it but my young son has croup and I thought I'd use this as I did my older two children because it genuinely worked unlike the plug in vaporisers on the market now, unfortunately my block needs replacing as does the fluid as it is out of date and I am astonished to see it is no longer produced what a loss of an excellent ...
