  • Check the instruction manual it will tell you how often to clean and with what type of product. If you don't have the manual then go online to the manufacturer to find out.

  • I would clean it every time you used it. If not then atleast every other day. Bacteria and such can build up in that and cause problems down the road if it is not cleaned properly. Also, I wouldn't use any cleaning chemicals, just soap and water. Antibacterial soap would probably be best, but you should refer to your manual that came with the humidifier to check for care directions.

  • Does it have the uv light. If not you might want to just get a new one.
