How do I Clean a Bionaire Humidifier Filter?

You can clean debris and mineral deposits from a Bionaire humidifier using a common household cleaner. Over time the filter inside a Bionaire humidifier builds up lime and other mineral scale from the water that passes through. These deposits clog the filter pores and slow the filtration process. Get a Bionaire working as well as the first day it was plugged in by cleaning out the filter in less than half an hour.

    Lower the filter into a shallow tub that contains a 50-50 solution of vinegar and water until it is completely submersed.

  4. 4

    Flip the filter over in the shallow tub and swish it around after it has soaked for 10 minutes.

  5. 5

    Remove the filter from the tub and rinse it thoroughly under cool running water.

  6. 6

    Dry the cleaned Bionaire humidifier filter in a warm location with good airflow overnight before returning it to the unit.

    Plug the Bionaire humidifier back into the power source or replace the batteries and turn it on.
