How to Clean Warm Mist Humidifiers:



For routine cleaning and maintenance, see the video below for your specific unit.


To clean the heating element of your humidifier, follow these steps:


  1. Make sure the unit is off and unplugged. 
  2. Remove the water tank, the cooling chamber, and the removable tray. 
  3. Fill the base with undiluted white vinegar so the heating element is submerged. 
  4. Do not submerge the whole base in any liquid. 
  5. Let the heating element soak in the vinegar for at least 20 minutes, never turn the unit on while you are cleaning. 
  6. If you have a lot of mineral buildup on the heating element you can soak it longer, such as several hours or overnight. 
  7. While it is still soaking in the vinegar, take a soft bristled brush and scrub off any minerals on the heating element.
  8. Empty and rinse thoroughly with water.

For ultrasonic humidifiers, periodic cleaning of the nebulizer will help it perform at its best. The nebulizer, which is a round disc found in the base of the unit, vibrates at ultrasonic speeds to create mist. Over time, minerals from your water may collect on the nebulizer causing it to slow to a pace that is not sufficient to create mist. At this time, we would recommend cleaning your nebulizer using these steps:


  1. Please make sure the unit is turned off and unplugged.
  2. Remove and empty water from the tank and then empty the base of the unit into your sink.
  3. Fill the base with undiluted white vinegar (just enough to cover the nebulizer) and let it soak for at least 20 minutes.  If you see a strong mineral build up, you may want to let it soak longer.
  4. While the nebulizer is soaking in vinegar, take a cotton swab and wipe around the nebulizer to remove the mineral deposits.
  5. Empty the vinegar and rinse the base with water.
  6. Please do not run the unit with the vinegar in it.
