SoClean & other CPAP cleaning machines
RE: SoClean & other CPAP cleaning machines
My wife and I have both used CPAP for nearly a decade. Once a week I wash our hoses and masks and tanks in warm soapy water for at least a half hour. Then rinse and air dry. We live in an arid region with low humidity so no worry about bacteria or mold with a once a week washing. We use distilled water which probably helps too.

Anyone familiar with this CPAP cleaner? It's on sale for $100.00 + shipping. I'm interested in it as a supplemental device I could use in addition to hand cleaning of my equipment. 

It comes with a cleaning kit as a bonus. It's not like I'd be investing a couple hundred dollars. And, it has a 60-day money back guarantee I believe. 

It's simple, easy to use, and only requires a few minutes. Anyways, curious to see what you all have to say.

I went online and found one, brand-new-in-the-box, for $50.00 shipped. That was a price I was willing to gamble on.  Cool

It's just a small ozone generator you throw in a bag with your mask and hose. I wouldn't bother with it but it's your $$

I figure for what I paid for it, and being curious as well, it was worth it. I tend to ignore the hose the most when it comes to cleaning it. It's about the only piece of equipment that I do wonder if it's as clean as it can be. 

Anyways, it's not a big investment and if it should give me a little piece of mind in this crazy world, that's a good thing.  Bigwink

RE: SoClean & other CPAP cleaning machines
I actually can see a very small niche for the ozone cleaners. IF you get a used machine during Covid pandemic, just to be extra safe, for one time only, submit your used machine to an ozone soak as a pecautionary measure.

After that initiate a normal mild soap and water cleaning per manufacturers instructions.
