Bin Maintenance

Wash it in the dishwasher or by hand with warm soapy water. Dry it with a soft, dry cloth.

Removing the Filter

To remove the filter, simply put your hand through the hole in the lid and grab it. Then you just have to change or wash it. To replace it, you can do the same by putting the filter back through the hole with your hand. It’s very straightforward.

Filter Change

Obviously, this depends on how much you use it. You should plan to wash it every month and a half to three months. Then, replacement also depends on how well you take care of it. With proper maintenance, your filters can last for over a year.
