We use the crane animal humidifiers. We get the filters for them, and change them every month. Once a week I get out the water pick and use the high pressure water to clean it out + the recommended soak in water and vinegar.
WaterPik! So smart!!!!
Oooo water pik or toilet sprayer, I’ll have to remember those as options for cleaning if I ever start using the humidifier again…..
nah I’ve never seen one that was easy to clean. I don’t get it, seems like an important thing to be able to clean
Frida Baby makes a humidifier that we like. Really easy to clean too.
I have the Fridababy as well and it’s pretty easy to clean.
We started using our filtered water tap and now it doesn’t get as grimy and do a wipe down once a week
