How To Clean Water Flosser: The Step-By-Step Method
Cleaning The Outside Of The Waterpik
Cleaning the outside of your Waterpik is simple enough that you can do it more than once a month. All you need is a gentle, non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth for this.
Cleaning The Water Reservoir
Read your user manual to find out how to remove the water reservoir from the unit.
If you have a countertop model, you must also remove the valve. You can do this by pushing on the valve’s bottom. Submerge it in running water for 30 to 45 seconds.
You can clean your water reservoir in your dishwasher and then leave it to air dry. You can also use warm soapy water to clean the water reservoir.
Don’t forget to put the valve back in if you removed it.
Cleaning The Internal Components
1 to 2 teaspoons white vinegar in water, then run through your Waterpik until the water reservoir is empty. After that, rinse it with clean water.
Clean The Handle (Countertop Models Only)
Use the eject button to remove the tip from your Waterpik.
Soak your Waterpik handle in a solution made up of two parts water to one part white vinegar. Allow it to sit in the solution for five to seven minutes.
Cleaning The Flosser Tip
Soak your Waterpik tip in a solution of two parts water to one part white vinegar or hydrogen peroxide for two minutes. Allow the Waterpik tip to soak in the solution for five minutes before removing it and rinsing it with cold water.
Replacing Your Waterpik Tip
Water flosser tips should be replaced every three to six months. You may notice that the water pressure changes over time, making your Waterpik a little more difficult to use. This is due to the possibility of mineral deposits accumulating in the tip, necessitating a replacement.
