How to Clean Your Ultrasonic Diffuser, Sink, Shower and Tub

This is a well loved, slightly neglected ultrasonic diffuser in dire need of a good scrubbing and descaling. What if I told you that you can clean your ultrasonic diffuser AND, the shower, sink and tub with only two ingredients that you probably have under your sink. Just look at the results!

This is the happy ending and an easy solution to stubborn hard water and soap scum residue. This DIY cleaner is a slight variation of an A M A Z I N G tub and shower cleaner that my sister Jill came up with several years ago. It just so happens that it's A M A Z I N G on gunky diffusers too. Best of all, no scrubbing is required and, you can shine up the bathroom and kitchen sink.

Simple, Basic and Versatile!

  1.  Add equal parts white vinegar and Palmolive OXY Dish Soap to a spray bottle, blend gently to keep the bubbles from multiplying. Optional: add a few drops of CW Essential Oil like our CW Deep Clean for their antibacterial benefits, especially if you're going to use the same solution to clean your sink, tub and shower.
  2. UNPLUG diffuser.
  3. Spray the inside of diffuser, coating sides and base of water vessel thoroughly. The solution will eventually pool at the bottom but that's just fine.
  4. Let the solution sit 30 to 45 minutes.
  5. Rinse out the diffuser well with warm water. Keep any exterior controls and electrical receptor dry.
  6. Wipe out well with a microfiber cloth.

I love this cleaning solution, it cleans, shines, removes hard water residue (hello, well water) and keeps my diffuser purring. I can't guarantee that it's safe for every ultrasonic diffuser made but chances are it just might work for you too. If you're apprehensive, start slowly, try it on your cast iron, porcelain, acrylic tubs and sinks. Trust me, it's amazing and so economical.

Reading between the lines in the previous comments,would I be correct in guessing that it doesn’t matter what kind of detergent you use? I’m in Australia and none of the above detergents are available here.

Thanks

I have been using this for years with the original blue Dawn dish soap and vinegar! Love it for my shower doors and the track and the build up around the bathroom faucets! I also use 2 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 part original blue Dawn dish soap to remove stains from laundry. I use a toothbrush to gently work up the bubbles, rinse, and then throw it in with the rest of your laundry. (Sorry if this is posted somewhere else) I absolutely swear by this mixture. I have even used it to successfully remove set in baby blow out and spit up stains. Just let it sit a bit before you wash.

It might, although I haven’t tried it. It might be worth your while to do a test area on your stainless sink first. Also, have you discovered Norwex microfiber cloths? They’re the only thing that will get my stainless spotless, no cleaner needed.

Will this work to remove hard water stains on stainless steel sinks and fridge (where water drips down from the water pour spout and ice dispenser inset)?
If not, what have you found that works and is relatively chemical free??
TIA!

A good grease cutting dish soap is best but you certainly can experiment with what you have.

Would Generic dish soap work?
