Cleaning Humidifiers Without Vinegar

Vinegar is a magic cleaning product, but what if you didn’t need to use vinegar to clean your humidifier? Ideally, you should be cleaning your humidifier 2-3 times a week, but having to soak your humidifier in vinegar can be time-consuming and vinegar is just an additional item on your ever-growing grocery store list. Using purified or distilled water can help minimize the amount of limescale buildup and further delay the need for cleaning, but even then your humidifier still requires that weekly descale. This where Miro humidifiers come in. Miro humidifiers don’t require vinegar to be cleaned thoroughly and don’t need hour long soaks to break down any gunk hiding in your machine.

Why Miro Humidifiers Don’t Need Vinegar

Miro humidifiers come apart completely, meaning that every component can be disassembled from the main body. This might seem intimidating, because how many parts do humidifiers actually have? The answer is not many. Miro Humidifiers are comprised of twelve parts altogether, including the noise muffler and splashguard. Miro’s simple design allows for easier, quicker, and more thorough cleaning. Then, when you are done washing each piece you can put it all back together with a few twists and snaps.

Miro has two models of humidifiers available in the United States, the NR07G and the NR08M. Both have similar designs and performance, deciding between one or the other is simply a matter of preference in looks.
