How To Clean Your Diffuser

Cleaning is a necessary step to ensure that oil residue doesn’t build up in your diffuser preventing it from working properly. Periodically, it is a good idea to run your diffuser through a cleaning cycle. If you use your unit every day, then running a cleaning cycle monthly is a good idea.

To do so, do the following:

  1. Fill your diffuser half way with clean water.
  2. Add 10 drops of white vinegar.
  3. Let the diffuser run for about 5 minutes to allow the water-vinegar mixture to disperse throughout the unit and clean it.
  4. Drain the diffuser completely.
  5. Using a cotton swab dipped in vinegar, clean the tight spots and corners of the diffuser.
  6. Rinse with clean water.
  7. Use a dry cloth to wipe the diffuser and dry it thoroughly.

Note: These bubbles are not going to provide big fluffy bubbles that last a long time since it doesn’t contain the synthetic ingredients that create the high amounts of lather or foam. However, this chemical-free bath will provide enough bubbles for a relaxing and therapeutic bath you will enjoy even more.
