    I have the cow humidifier, I empty the water each morning, but it looks like it needs a good clean. What do i clean it with and how, the opening is so small?

    The black plastic piece in the base of my cow humidifier is flaking. How do I clean this or do I need to replace this piece?

    I also would really like to know how to clean the internal parts.

    Yes, the black circular piece has been flaking. Now it no longer creates a strong enough mist. Is there a way to replace this piece, or do I need a whole new machine??

Old question but just in case someone goes to looking for an answer:

A good procedure for any ultrasonic humidifier is to switch the unit OFF and unplug it. Empty the water out. Rinse the reservoir and places where water comes in contact with hot/clean water. Do not submerge the base of the unit or anything containing electrical components! Visually inspect for dirt or mineral build up in the reservoir or where watcer comes in contact. If the water your using in the unit is soft water then de-calcifying the unit every 4 weeks is suggested. If hard water is used the unit should be decalcified every 2 weeks. You can use CLR (Calcium Lime Rust) solution or EZ Cal.

I also need some information on cleaning, specifically the base. Not sure if I should use soap or if that will affect the nebulizer?
For cleaning the reservoir, just add a capfull of bleach to some water, and swish it around intermittently for about 20 minutes -- rinse until you don't smell bleach anymore.

How to clean air-o-swiss humidifier?

Gererally according to the booklet in the box.
If you no longer have those instructions, simply clean out the
basin, make sure no mold, dust, hardwater or calcium is deposited.
Use a 10% bleach water solution to kill bacteria, and thats is basically it.
Just dont miss any spots, but humdifiers should be cleaned every few uses.

Hi, Looks like this should be easy to operate. These are the only directions I found for this humidifier: This Crane humidifier operates with cold tap water. Just fill the 1 gallon tank in the sink (fits most common sized sinks) and switch the unit on. The Cow Humidifier will produce cold mist instantanously. The mist output can be regulated with the control button located at the front.
Hope this helps! Hal

I put 1 Cup of bleach in it with warm water and let it set for about an hour. The tank is clean and you can use it over and over again. Good luck and hopefully this has helped you. I just love this machine and am glad I bought it for my son.
