What specific type of soap do you use to clean Cpap tube?
I'm with PaytonA. I don't wash my cpap hose. The only thing that ever goes through the hose is filtered air that has passed over distilled water. I am still using my original hose that is almost two years old. No problems.

I use a few drops of Johnson's baby shampoo in a half sink of warm water to clean the face mask. After it is rinsed well and air dried, it is pleasant to sleep with.

YMMV, Jeff
Sleep is worth the effort.

But what happens if you snarf during the night? Don't you want to clean that grunge out?

There's a flap that closes if you exhale, cough, or sneeze. I'm not sure it blocks everything, though.
Please organize your SleeyHead screenshots like this.

The flap is part of an anti-asphyxiation valve that allows air in and out of the mask when no air is not coming from the blower. When air is coming from the blower the flapper closes off the anti-asphyxiation vent and everything runs normally

Best Regards,
