Clean your inhaler once a week after your evening dose to keep it working well. Even if you don’t see medicine buildup, it’s important.
Step 1: Remove the Cap
Take off the cap from the mouthpiece. Keep the canister inside the plastic part.

Step 2: Use a Damp Cotton Swab

  • Dampen a cotton swab with water.
  • Gently clean the small, circular opening where the medicine comes out. Twist the swab to remove any medicine.
  • Use a new damp swab to ensure there’s no leftover medicine.

Step 3: Wipe Inside

  • Use a damp tissue to wipe the inside of the mouthpiece.
  • Let the plastic part dry overnight.

Step 4: Put on the Cap

  • Once it’s dry, put the cap back on the mouthpiece.
