Choose the Right CPAP Cleaner for You!

Everyone understands the importance of using clean CPAP supplies, but does everyone recognize the amount of effort it takes to keep them clean?! 

How many times have you washed a headgear only to have it still be wet by the time you go to bed? 

How many times have you gone to refill your water chamber in your humidifier and thought the smell was tolerable?

How many times has the tubing fallen off the hanger or towel rack you had it on, so you don’t know if all the water dried?

Imagine those frustrations – gone! The CPAP cleaners we promote offer the peace-of-mind sanitizing that you’ve been looking for. 

CPAP cleaners completely sanitize your most important CPAP accessories, including: your mask, headgear, tubing, and water chamber. The best CPAP cleaners and the most popular on the market today use activated oxygen or ultraviolet light instead of water or harsh chemicals, and destroy bacteria, viruses, and mold. Our four favorite CPAP sanitizer machines are the Lumin, SoClean 2, Zoey, and Sleep8.

So, which one is right for you?

    I bought a lumin cpap cleaner 2 weeks ago. My equipment has a strange burst smell when I sanitizer it? Any idea why?

    It is my understanding that the
    so clean was not to be used with the dream station2. There was a big recall on the dream stations because of this. Why are you still recommending the so clean2 or is there a work around..

    I have an Air Sense 11 machine. What are the machine or bag cleaners I can use. Do I need an adapter if so which one.

    Hello Raymond,

    The Luna 3G CPAP unit is a popular and effective device for managing sleep apnea. While the Luna G3 is incompatible with the SoClean, alternative CPAP cleaning machines can be used to ensure your unit remains hygienic and well-functioning.

    One option is the Lumin CPAP Cleaner, a highly rated and widely compatible cleaning device. The Lumin uses UV-C light technology to sanitize your CPAP equipment, including the mask, hose, and water chamber. It emits high-energy light that destroys bacteria, viruses, and mold, ensuring your CPAP unit stays clean without chemicals or water.

    Additionally, you may use the Papitizer CPAP Sanitizer, which uses the same UV-C light technology, ensuring thoroughly cleaning of your CPAP equipment.

    I have a new Luna 3G CPAP unit. Which Cleaner/sanitizer is compatible with my unit? And are there additional adapters required? I have a So Clean unit that I used with my Res Med Dreamer 2 CPAP—can this be adapted to use with the Luna G3?
