How to clean your Ceramic Replacement Disc [or disk] with or without a keytool
THE #1 THING TO REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR FOUNTAIN MIST MAKER MISTING LIKE IT SHOULD
——-NEVER TOUCH THE DISC WITH YOUR FINGERS
the oils from your fingertips can ruin your replacement disc, a new disc or old one. The DISC is what makes the mist!
Our replacement ceramic discs come with a black rubber protective washer around the disc.

The solid white side goes facing UP toward you, after it is placed in your mist maker.
