Living Dangerously - Nebulizer Cleaning

Amanda, perhaps a year. The lynchpin of the process is a brief initial white vinegar bath during which the mouthpiece is dismantled, placed in a Tupperware container with enough vinegar in it to cover the parts. Lid on, I briefly agitate the container to insure every surface gets some vinegar, enough I hope to drastically shorten the life expectancy of what ever might be camping on the surfaces. Then rinse in warm water with a little soap on the part that enters my mouth. Allow to air dry. I leave the vinegar in the container and reuse it several times before replacing. As you can surmise, this is really Rocket Science. 😂 Don

@thumperguy, Don, that's exactly what I clean mine in! A vinegar and water mix but I'm really bad and don't even rinse in warm water and soap. I keep a bowl also with a lid on it on my kitchen counter and put all the pieces in there and slosh them around a little and let them sit there until I remember to take them out and let them dry on a paper towel that I then cover. Sometimes I've forgotten to take them out and they sit overnight. And I reuse my vinegar/water mix for a couple of weeks. I've been doing this for a couple of years. Nan
