What CPAP cleaner is the best?
CPAP cleaners are devices that sanitize and disinfect a CPAP machine, tubing, and mask to prevent bacteria and viruses. Proper cleaning by hand is effective, but users often don't have the time or follow the correct procedure when cleaning their CPAP machine and related supplies by hand. A CPAP cleaner can automate the process and is very effective in sanitizing your equipment and supplies.
They are 3 good options, but take a look at our comparisons, to help you choose the best CPAP cleaner.

** This can now be a 1 step process, with the New Lumin Bullet. Click Here to See
2. Can have a burnt smell if CPAP mask is dirty, or if dust, the skin is on supplies. This is also a Pro since the UV light is doing its job. This isn't always the case for every patient depending on the environment.
