Back to the subject, so now I also own a vaporizer. And, I never remember seeing my mom cleaning the vaporizer. Obviously, she must have, because as I have jumped on the white vinegar cleans everything craze, I thought I should try it on the vaporizer. GLAD I DID! After one night, (and I wish I would have gotten a picture of this) the vinegar had turned brown and there was a lot of "floaters."
What I did: took a plastic container and filled it half way with the white vinegar, then I placed the top of the vaporizer into the white vinegar, I left it in the white vinegar over night:
This next picture was taken after the second vinegar soaking...
I'm sure this wasn't a good thing that I have owned the vaporizer for over two years and never cleaned it. I'm not sure how I will know when it is actually clean, but I am going to soak it one more time and rinse it.
Bottom Line...."soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur..." Just Kidding...but seriously, if you have a vaporizer, make sure you are keeping it clean!
