What is the best way to clean a diffuser? Fill the diffuser halfway with plain water and a teaspoon of white vinegar. Run it for 5-10 minutes so the vinegar has a chance to disperse through all components of the system, and then empty the reservoir again.
How often should you clean your diffuser? Ideally, a diffuser should be rinsed clean after every use, especially if you are changing the oil scents. Then, depending on how frequently the diffuser is used, it should be thoroughly cleaned at least monthly to remove dust and build-up that affects how well it works.
How do you clean gunk out of a diffuser? Fill the water reservoir half full, and add in 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar. Run the diffuser for 5-10 minutes to allow the vinegar/water mixture to work through and loosen up the gunk.
How do I clean my diffuser without vinegar? Combine warm water and several drops of castile soap or a gentle dish soap in a bowl. Using your cloth, clean and wipe the entire top and pieces. You can use a Q-tip or a soft brush to get at those tricky little nooks and crannies. Rinse, dry and set aside these pieces.
