SoClean is a CPAP cleaner and sanitizer machine that automatically cleans and dries parts of the CPAP and BiPAP machine by using activated oxygen.
If you use a CPAP machine for sleep apnea, you’re already taking a step on improving your health. But part of having a CPAP machine involves routine cleaning, otherwise, you may be harming your health, rather than improving it.
CPAP machines typically require daily cleaning of the water chamber and mask, and at least weekly cleaning of the tubing, depending on the manufacturer. Cleaning usually consists of warm water with a mild soap, and always letting the parts hang to air-dry thoroughly to prevent bacteria or fungi from forming.
The amount of time it takes to clean and completely dry a CPAP can be time consuming and because of this, many people with CPAPs are not compliant with daily care.
Fortunately, there are now cleaners on the market that can clean and sanitize your CPAP machine for you, and in a lot less time.
SoClean CPAP sanitizer
The SoClean is a CPAP sanitizer that does not use chemicals and water. It uses activated oxygen to sanitize, just like in a hospital setting. When this device generates activated oxygen, it pumps it through your CPAP mask, hose, and reservoir. Activated oxygen is known to kill germs and bacteria it comes into contact with. This machine is 99.9 percent effective in killing the germs in your CPAP machine.
What sets the SoClean apart from other CPAP cleaners is the ease of use. To use, you simply place your CPAP mask inside the SoClean device, close the lid, and it will start cleaning and sanitizing automatically. You won’t even need to disconnect the mask or tubing from your CPAP.
The SoClean CPAP cleaner easily connects to most PAP devices, and if it is not compatible, they offer an adapter you can add onto your purchase, with no extra charge. Their website offers a list of common CPAP machines and whether it will need an adapter or not.

With the increasing popularity of CPAP and increasing awareness of sleep apnea, equipment manufacturers regularly try new marketing tactics in order to gain market share. Machine discounts and coupons are one of the ways that they try to compete.
