Weekly Cleaning & Care
CAUTION: Before cleaning always turn power off and unplug the unit from outlet.
DO NOT use any solvents or aggressive cleaning agents. Keep water away from the Air Outlet. DO NOT
tamper with the Water Sensor.
About White Dust - Use of high-mineral content water may cause a white mineral residue to accumulate
on room surfaces near the humidifier. The mineral residue is commonly called “white dust”. The higher the
mineral content (the harder your water is), the greater the potential for white dust. The white dust is not caused
by a defect in the humidifier, but is due only to minerals suspended in the water. If you have hard tap water we
recommend using only filtered, distilled, cold boiled or bottled water to minimize the white dust residue.
Tank Cleaning - Remove the Mist Nozzle from the top of the water tank then remove the water tank from the
unit. Turn the tank upside down, unscrew the tank cap and drain any water from the tank. Wipe the tank with a
soft damp cloth then rinse it with warm water inside and out.
Base Cleaning - Gently wipe the base with a soft damp cloth, do not immerse the Base in water.
Never scrape the Ultrasonic Nebulizer with a hard or sharp object.
White Dust Cleaning - If mineral deposits
“White Dust” are evident around the Ultrasonic
Nebulizer and Water Sensor, clean these surfaces
with a soft, cloth and a small amount of undiluted
white vinegar. If necessary, mix a solution of 50%
white vinegar and 50% water and fill the Base with
enough solution to cover the Ultrasonic Nebulizer (a).
Allow it to soak for an hour and then use the provided
brush to gently loosen buildup on the
Ultrasonic Nebulizer (b). Rinse out the Base with
clean water and wipe clean with a soft cloth.

Ceramic Water Filter Cleaning - Remove the
Water Tank from the Humidifier Base. Remove the
Tank Cap (c) and rinse Water Filter thoroughly with
tap water, then replace on Water Tank (d).
Surface Cleaning - Clean all surfaces of the unit with a
clean
damp soft cloth.
CAUTION: When emptying the water reservoir on the base,
make sure that the water is poured away from the air outlet (e).
If water is poured into the outlet it may damage the humidifier.

battery tray towards the right to unlock the tray. (f) While the the tab is pushed,
pull out the battery tray. (g) Remove the battery from the tray and replace it with
