Rinse and air dry!!: Rinse the nebulizer cup well with warm water, shake off excess water, and air dry after each treatment. . At the end of day, wash the nebulizer cup, mask, or mouthpiece in warm soapy water using a mild detergent, rinsed thoroughly, and air dry. No need to clean the compressor tubing. Every 3rd day mix 1/2 cup white vinegar with 1 1/2 cups of water , soak for 20 minutes, rinse and dry
