Cleaning the Spacer

Clean your spacer about once a month and after you have recovered from any cold or respiratory infection. Your spacer may become a bit cloudy over time, but it should not be mouldy or brown.

To clean your spacer:

  • Dismantle your spacer, if necessary
  • Wash all the parts in clean warm water with liquid dishwashing detergent.
  • Allow the parts to air dry without rinsing – drying with a cloth or paper towel can result in static building up on the inside of the spacer, which makes the medication stick to the sides.
  • Wipe the mouthpiece clean of detergent, if needed
  • When completely dry, reassemble if necessary.
