How Do I Clean My Humidifier?

Always clean your humidifier according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  Many vaporizers can be cleaned with some vinegar or a little bleach, depending on the model and the design.  If the humidifier has a removable tank free of electric parts, it may be recommended to clean with bleach and water.  Always completely rinse out all bleach before using your humidifier again.  Again, to clean parts that are more delicate, follow manufacturer’s instructions exactly. Some tell you soak specific parts in a vinegar and water solution to dissolve hard water buildup.  Follow your user’s manual or get one from the manufacturer’s website.
