You either love using a humidifier or you couldn’t care less. It seems like there is no in-between! Well, if you indeed love using it that means you need to know how to disinfect it in order for it to work properly, right?
Disinfecting your humidifier is extremely important because otherwise, it will disperse germs in the air which is the last thing we all want!
You need to do so at least once a week. Yes, I know that it sounds like way too much work but trust me – you won’t waste a ton of time or energy. It’s quite easy actually!
Let’s get started!
All you need are white vinegar, distilled warm water, and a microfiber cloth.
Is using distilled water necessary? Yes! Tap water contains mineral deposits which will cause build-up and bacteria growth.
Now, start with unplugging the humidifier. Then remove the water tank, fill it with the distilled water and white vinegar, and let the mixture sit for an hour. Then rinse with warm water and dry with the cloth.
Then conitnue with cleaning the water basin with the same mixture of distilled water and vinegar.
You are almost ready – all you have left is the exterior of the humidifier. Use the water and vinegar mixture and wipe the exterior of the humidifier with it. Don’t forget the air vents!
