After each use:

  • Clean the upper and lower tanks, nose pillows, and nasal dock by detaching them from the white mechanical module and thoroughly washing them with anti-bacterial dishwashing soap (the major brands all make this and they are clearly labeled on the front and available at most supermarkets), or with a solution of one-half white vinegar and one-half water.

  • Wipe the underside of the mechanical module with a cloth dampened with anti-bacterial soap or vinegar and water.  Do no immerse or run water onto the mechanical module.

  • Rinse the crushing chamber lid (A and B) under very hot water for 30 seconds.  This will melt away salt crystals, if any.

  • Rinse the drain and drain pipe by lifting the drain pull (C) and running hot water through it.


  • Don’t place the Naväge Nose Cleaner in a dishwasher. It is not dishwasher safe.  Exposing the tanks to dishwasher heat may warp and prevent them from sealing to the center module.  Running the Nose Cleaner through a dishwasher voids the warranty and will likely damage the device.

  • Don’t rinse the underside of the white center module with running water, as this may damage the pump. Instead, wipe it with a damp cloth.


We’re trying to be very thorough with the cleaning instructions above, but please be assured that in practice it’s a pretty simple process.
