How to clean your spacer

Every two weeks or at least monthly, separate the two pieces of the spacer and wash in warm soapy water.


Do not rinse as the soap helps to reduce the static charge in the spacer (static causes the medicine to stick to the sides of the spacer reducing the amount of medicine delivered to the breathing tubes or airways).


Allow to drip dry thoroughly after washing.


DO NOT dry with a tea towel and DO NOT wash in dishwasher as these increase the static charge.
