My diffuser is looking pretty sad! I decided it needed a nice cleaning. All diffusers will come with instructions on how to clean them but if you are like me, you no longer have those instructions! Plus, I wanted an easy trick that I could clean all and any diffusers with.
This is what my diffuser looked like before I cleaned it 🙁

Much better right?!
All I did was fill up the diffuser with half vinegar half water. I then let it diffuse over night but it really only needs to diffuse for a few hours. Make sure you use tap water and not filtered water or distilled water. If your diffuser is acting a little weird I recommend you give it a nice clean and then see how it works. Most of the time it will fix the problem if you are using tap water.
In the morning I just took a dry rag and wiped it out. That was it! Now it looks so nice and clean! This technique can be used with most diffusers. Always try to follow the directions on the instruction sheet first! Has your diffuser ever looked this bad?
Now it’s time to start diffusing again 🙂
