Thoroughly clean the humidifier weekly. It is recommended that the unit be cleaned more frequently if tap water/hard water is being used. Using hard water in the unit leaves mineral deposits and creates “white mist”.

Tank cleaning

  1. Fill the water tank 1/3 of the way with clean water and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or bleach.
  2. Set aside for 20 minutes, over a sink, shake the tank every few minutes. DO NOT place the tank on the base or run the unit while cleaning.
  3. Drain and rinse the tank twice with clean water. Use a soft wash cloth to wipe down and dry off the tank.

Base Cleaning

  1. Use a cup to fill the base of the unit with 2 cups of clean water and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or bleach. Set aside for 5 minutes. NEVER submerge or place base of unit under running water.
  2. Carefully use the brush (provided) to clean around the nebulizer and loosen any mineral deposit build-up. DO NOT touch nebulizer with fingers as any fingerprints or other residue can affect mist output.
  3. Empty the cleaning solution by holding the base from the side where the brush holder is located and having the water run the opposite end.
  4. Rinse the base twice using by pouring 2 cups of clean water in the base each time.
  5. Wipe the base and outer surfaces with a soft, damp wash cloth.
