First disassemble the VORTEX. Pull off the mouthpiece unit and remove any other accessories (e.g. one-handed operation aid). If you have used a mask, also detach the mask from the mouthpiece unit. Do not remove the blue connecting ring. Make sure that the blue protective cap is open.
Clean all parts thoroughly in warm tap water with a little dishwashing liquid.
Rinse all parts thoroughly with fresh water.
Alternatively, the VORTEX can be cleaned in the dishwasher. To do this, place the individual parts in the dishwasher plate rack and select a programme with a water temperature of at least 50°C. Note that the VORTEX chamber and the mouthpiece should be placed in an upright position.
The VORTEX can be disinfected together with accessories (e.g. mask) in a steam disinfector.
Alternatively, you can disinfect the VORTEX in boiling water: To do this, place all the parts in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Make sure that the VORTEX and all the accessories (e.g. mask) are completely immersed in the water.
Allow the VORTEX and accessories to dry at room temperature. Due to the antistatic properties of the VORTEX, you can also dry it using a clean tea towel.
Reassemble all VORTEX parts and store them in a dry, dust-free place.
