How to clean the HandiHaler®

When is the HandiHaler® empty?

When you have run out of capsules, you will have no more medicine. The HandiHaler® should be replaced yearly. 


How to clean the HandiHaler®

  • Once a month, you should:
  • Open the dust cap.
  • Open the mouthpiece.
  • Open the bottom part by pressing the green lever in and up.
  • Rinse under warm water to remove dry powder.
  • Shake out excess water.
  • Leave to air dry for 24 hours with the HandiHaler® open.


Dry the outside with a clean cloth, if needed.


Remember that as the HandiHaler® takes 24 hours to dry, you should wash it immediately after a dose to ensure that it is completely dry before the next dose.
