Cleaning Tips

Here are some helpful tips for cleaning your humidifier. The mist from your humidifier is only as clean as the water in the tank! For cleaning tips on other humidifiers, please visit the product detail pages.


Empty your humidifier daily and refill 
with fresh water.


Use undiluted white vinegar to remove scale (mineral buildup). Then, if desired, use a solution of 1 teaspoon bleach to 1 gallon of water to disinfect your humidifier.


At the end of the season, or if not using, descale and disinfect your humidifier (as outlined in 'Weekly') before storing. Never store humidifier with a used filter or other accessories.

Additional Cleaning Tips

If you have hard water, be sure to check your filter regularly (for evaporative humidifiers) for mineral build up that may reduce output. Filter-free cool mist (Ultrasonic) and warm mist humidifiers should be cleaned regularly to reduce mineral build up on the nebulizer or heating element.
Consider using a humidifier cleaning ball to keep your humidifier cleaner longer between cleanings.
Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for regular cleaning.
