We’ve discussed the three methods of cleaning your CPAP device:
1: Manufacturer’s Recommended Cleaning
Manufacturers recommend cleaning daily to weekly with a hot soapy water wash and rinse, followed by an astringent (vinegar solution) soak weekly.
2: Ozone Sanitizers
Ozone sanitizers use ozone gas to disinfect the CPAP device. As discussed here, there are many negative side effects reported by users.
3: Ultraviolet (UV-C) Technology
UVC technology utilizes the power of ultaviolet light to clean and disinfect the CPAP device.
