Cleaning Your Diffuser

Creating a pleasant, uplifting atmosphere is what diffusers do best—who doesn’t love the delicious scents of Lavender, Cinnamon Bark, or Madagascar Vanilla wafting through the house? However, you might’ve noticed aromas starting to run together over time.

If you smell hints of the Peppermint you diffused a day ago while enjoying the tangier notes of citrus oils, it might be time to clean your diffuser. The more essential oils you diffuse, the more residue builds. Regularly cleaning a diffuser can help you avoid intermingling scents.

Regular Cleaning

Twice a week:

  1. Turn the diffuser off and unplug the power adapter.
  2. Empty any excess water on the opposite side of the diffuser’s air outlet to avoid spillage.
  3. Use a cotton cloth and neutral cleanser—such as distilled vinegar—to wipe down the water reservoir and mist plate, carefully using a cotton swab to cleanse the tight spots around the plate.

Deep Cleaning

Once a month:

  1. Fill your diffuser halfway with water.
  2. Add 10 drops of white vinegar.
  3. Let the diffuser run for five minutes to disperse the mixture and clean the unit.
  4. Drain completely.
  5. Clean the tight spots and corners with a vinegar-dipped cotton swab.
  6. Rinse with clean water.
  7. Thoroughly dry the diffuser with a cotton cloth.

Warning: Corrosive or harsh chemicals may damage your diffuser.
