We are here to support you with all your sleep apnea needs which is why we want to remind you that it is so important to consistently stay clean and away from harmful germs. We all try to stay clean; we shower, wash our hands, brush our teeth, wash our sheets, etc. Why wouldn't you wash your CPAP mask and other supplies too?
Lets face it there are germs everywhere and the last place you want them are by your face! Your CPAP machine is always by your mouth where moisture is present. With so much moisture and bacteria, instead of building a sand castle at the beach this summer, you will be building a castle of mold in your CPAP instead. Below is a guide to help you avoid the germs and bacteria:
Healthy CPAP Guide

Daily Cleaning Tips
- Soak all supplies in a 50/ 50 solution of white vinegar and warm water for 8- 10 minutes.
- After soaking the supplies, rinse thoroughly with warm water.
- You may also use a non-antibacterial soap in place of the vinegar.
- DO NOT USE ANTIBACTERIAL SOAPS, as they can interact with the plastics in the equipment, often causing them to break down.
