Keep your wallflower plug in working great with this simple method to clean it…
Have you ever looked at your wallflower plug in after the scented oil runs out? Usually there’s an orange waxy build up all over it and unless you want to throw it away and buy a new one, you have to clean it to keep the plug in working right. I used to just use a paper towel and some water, but it never seemed to clean everything off, especially on the inside of the plug in, so I talked to one of the sales associates who told me this easy method that they do, and sure enough…it works like a charm! Here’s how…
First, remove the plug in refill and throw it away. See all that orange gunk? That’s on the inside of the diffuser and needs to be cleaned off before we put a new wallflower bulb on.
To clean it, you’ll need some rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs. I like using the medical ones so I can really get inside the plug in since they’re longer.
Starting from the under side, push the cotton swab through the hole and clean the underside of the grates. this will push any waxy build up through the holes up top so you can wipe them away.
Once you flip it over and wipe the wax from the top, then push the swab through the holes and swirl it around to clean in between.
You’ll see how much residue comes off.
Once it’s all clean, you can put on a new wallflower bulb and plug it back in. It will be as good as new!
It may seem silly to do this when you can just go out and buy another, but I fell in love with the style of mine and want to keep it running great as long as I can. So if you’ve been looking at your wallflower plug in thinking it’s time to be replaced because it’s looking dingy and gross, try cleaning it first instead! You’ll save a few dollars and be amazed at how well it works again after you’re done.
