How do I clean the filter on my aircare humidifier?
- Remove the humidifier filter from the machine and brush or vacuum lightly to remove any loose scale, dirt or dust.
- Combine one gallon of water and one cup of undiluted white vinegar in a plastic pail or bucket.
Consequently, is it OK to run humidifier without filter?
Evaporative cool mist humidifiers cannot be run without the use of a wick filter. However, ultrasonic and warm mist humidifiers that use a water purification filter can be used without the filter.
One may also ask, do you wet humidifier filter?
In fact, we do not recommend using a humidifier water treatment, since it may damage the filter. Just like you would with a paper filter, wet your new Natural-Breeze filter before placing it in your humidifier. Only use COLD water to clean your Natural-Breeze filter. Hot water may damage the filter.
The humidifier filter must be replaced regularly, but hand-cleaning can extend its lifetime and improve air quality. This method will work with most humidifier filters, but keep in mind that paper filters cannot be cleaned.
