While there are other methods of cleaning your humidifier, it is probably best to stay away from types of chemical cleaning solutions, such as baking soda or hydrogen peroxide. Baking soda does not work against most of the germs and bacteria, especially E.coli and salmonella and this could eventually cause a real threat to your health. Also, concentrated hydrogen peroxide can be dangerous to use in a home setting improperly. At the end of the day, bleach also has it's own disadvantages and precautions to keep in mind but it will still be the most effective disinfectant readily available in most homes.
Lastly, always remember to make sure to use ANY type of chemical cleaning solution carefully! Read the directions and precautions printed on the containers and be sure to take care in handling the contents by keeping yourself safe with gloves and other protective accessories when necessary.
