Does Anyone Use Control 3?
I bought some Control 3 to disinfect my hoses after any kind of respiratory infection or even to do it once a month to keep any nasty germs at bay. I usually just wash my hose once a week in Ivory liquid and my nasal mask and little hose daily and my humidifier daily. I am pretty careful about equipment cleanliness because at my age, colds become pneumonia and worse.
Some have said it is too harsh but it is sold at most cpap stores as safe when used correctly and properly diluted. What say you?

Hi Lukie,
I have used Control III and didn't have any problems with it and I don't think it is too harsh if you use it as directed..
Now I just use Ivory liquid to wash my parts in once a week but if you want alittle extra, Control III is good, too.
Hang in there for more suggestions.

I've used it a couple of times. Easy to use. Gives me confidence that my hoses and humidifiers are disinfected.

There's several people here who use it on a regular basis.

Just follow the directions and go for it.

I've never used it but I've considered it.
