How to Use a Nebulizer : How to Deep Clean Nebulizer Attachments

With regular use of the nebulizer, you want
to do a deep more thorough clean of your equipment about once every one or two weeks. What is
recommended is a mixture of one part vinegar and this vinegar is distilled white vinegar.
So one part vinegar, two parts water. So what I’m going to be doing here is I’m going to
add one cup of vinegar and then I’m going to add two cups of water. And again, obviously
you want to use clean water, purified water, distilled water if you have that. Then what
I’m going to do is take the equipment, you want to make sure that the equipment is able
to submerge fully. You might want to turn it a few times. So the container has to be
deep enough to allow for that. Get out like the air pockets, that kind of thing. You’re
going to want to let this sit for about 30 minutes. And then once it’s been in there
for 30 minutes, you just take it out and the same instructions as before, you’re going
to let it out and air dry. You do not want to put this equipment in a dish washer. You
can read the specific recommendations for the parts that you’re using but in general
the dish washer is going to be a bit too harsh. So this is what the recommended cleaning is.

  1. I'm glad she said not to put the parts in a dishwasher. Me and my fiance almost put the parts in the dishwasher. Yikes, that would have been a nightmare.

  2. Actually, this needs to be done daily (for those that use it daily). Also, it needs to soak for at least a couple of hours, or overnight. This nebulizer is designed to nebulize anything in this cup. Therefore, this is why it is important NOT to use detergents (ie dishwahser, bleach, … ) as in other video. Simply rinse with water before using. It does NOT need to be dry (unless you plan on not using for awhile). Air drying is actually where nebs get contaminated.
