If you use a humidifier then it is very important you deep clean it once a week because stagnant water is a breeding ground of germs and who would want for those germs to get right in the air that we breathe?

Experts say that you shouldn’t use detergents that contain harsh chemicals and I couldn’t agree more. I usually use natural ingredients that I already have in my home like white vinegar.

Let’s start cleaning

Of course, start with unplugging the humidifier and disassembling it completely.

Continue with pouring one cup of white vinegar straight into the water tank.

Then you need to place the water tank on the base and let the vinegar drain into the reservoir. This will help with the build-up.

After 15 to 20 minutes have passed then continue with emptying the water tank and the base from the vinegar. Grab a brush and start scrubbing.

When you are about to clean the small parts of the humidifier you should dip a sponge in vinegar and wipe them with it.

Once you are done cleaning everything with the vinegar make sure you rinse everything well and let it air dry.
