We are an official distributor of the SoClean 2 Machine, which provides an opportunity for us to have the same disinfecting and sanitising process currently used in hospitals in our homes.
All of our current trustees actually now own a SoClean to use for their own CPAP or Non-Invasive Ventilators, and whilst it's not cheap, it is certainly worth considering saving up for if you are prone to respiratory infections.
Reviews of the product are very high, and it is a convenient way of sanitising the machine as it can be set up to 'go and forget' every morning.
SoClean, the world's first automated CPAP Cleaner and Sanitiser is now here in the UK, giving an opportunity to have the same disinfecting and sanitising process currently used in hospitals in our homes.
SoClean kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria in the mask, hose and humidifier tank with no disassembly, no water and no chemicals. Thereby resulting in a safer, healthier way to breathe cleaner air.
The SoClean uses activated oxygen to eliminate any mould, bacteria, and viruses that may be lingering in the CPAP system, and is the same process used in hospital sanitising, water purification, hotel housekeeping and produce handling. To see a demonstration of how it works, see the video below:-
Hope2Sleep have trialled the SoClean on Respironics, Resmed + Devilbiss machines and so found it certainly appears to be doing its job well, in that the air in the machine feels much fresher than with regular sanitising. In fact all our trustees who use CPAP or Ventilation actually now own a SoClean themselves. It is easy to operate after the initial setup, and can be left connected for easy frequent use. We cleaned the facial oils off the mask as usual with the CPAP Wipes after putting into the SoClean, but this is personal choice, and apparently doesn't matter which way around it is done, according to the manufacturer, but it is better for the mask to be completely dry before placing into the SoClean.
The reviews are very positive, and especially for people with sinus issues and who are prone to viral infections, nasal stuffiness and allergies.
Some of the Important Questions relating to the use of the SoClean are below, and there are more on the manufacturer's website:-
The warm moist environment in the tubing being a perfect environment for hosting nasties was a concern and I could see drying the tubing to a satisfactory level (to inhibit bacterial growth) was going to be a daily grind so I did a bit of googling and was led back to Hope2Sleep. As a nurse I might be a bit more prone to being concerned over whether things are safe cleanliness wise but then I have seen disastrous infections that in some cases are likely to have been avoided with better hygiene. I am happy now that if there is moisture still in the tube I know it has been disinfected. I was concerned about the comments over the smell but I only had the faintest whiff of an ozone smell which didnít last a moment and I found reassuring. Iím also pleased that the distilled water I use (so as not to scale up the humidifier) is also taken care of as it having no chlorine in it makes you wonder how long its safe to use the same bottle for. For whatever reason CPAP users do suffer from more chest infections than the average person and this little bit of kit means I can chuck the mask in close the lid and forget about it.O3 is widely used in industry and known to be a very potent steriliser. You do get a little ozone smell if your close when its running so I always leave the room and give the CPAP a little blast before putting the mask on, mainly to reassure myself as 2 hours should be more than ample to allow for its breakdown. Fast friendly service from SoClean and the voucher took a bit of the sting out! Expensive- yes definitely, worth it- yes definitely.

Well worth getting £25 off my purchase of the SoClean CPAP Sanitiser machine and the gentleman that I spoke to at Hope2Sleep was extremely helpful.
Was nervous due to the cost as very expensive but everything does smell very clean my hose never has any wet particles in it anymore which I was concerned about for spores going into my lungs. It's very easy to use once set up has a times for daily cleaning but can also manual clean hope I get many many years use out of it

Expensive but feel happier that my equipment is sterilised daily. Really easy to use.
After using the mask has an unpleasant smell. I have to wash it to get rid of that which defeats the object as I wanted to use it because I forgot to wash it often.

Sorry to hear you're affect by the smell Richard. We've only heard of 1 other person this happen with. I guess it's due to some of us being more sensitive to smells than others....I actually find it kind of a pure smell. If you bought it from the UK supplier within the last 30 days then contact them as they will refund you.
An easy process to clean the parts prior to first use. Each morning I simply pop the mask in, close the lid, when I get home it has done the job. Yes, there is a bit of a chlorine-like smell, but it isn't unpleasant and after a few seconds you don't notice it. I feel reassured that I am breathing air through clean equipment. As I spend around a 1/4 of my life breathing through the c-pap, this is really important. Highly recommended.
I'd had my CPAP about three days before I succumbed and splashed out on this machine. Life's too short to spend time messing around cleaning a mask and hose every day and anyway, I wasn't convinced I would get the equipment clean - even though I'd bought the cleaning wipes. I needed an adaptor which increased the cost of the machine but I still think it's money well spent. Having said that, I've knocked off one star just because it's so much more expensive in the UK than it is in the USA. My Barclaycard statement arrived this morning which gave me a bit of a jolt, but I'm still glad I bought the machine. Highly recommended.
This thing is so easy to use and seems to work extremely well. Cleans everything right into the cpap. You could use it to clean other things to as it has quite a lot of internal storage.
Excellent device wish I'd had this long time ago, I'm certain it'll stop me having as many colds as I've had since I started using a CPAP machine. Delivered on time, everything in the box & very easy to use.
I purchased this item after moving to a hard water area, and finding new problems. I continued my same cleaning routine, but found I was getting sores in my nostrils, no matter what I did. I got new masks, hoses, humidifier, etc and even a water purifier, but the problem continued. So, I purchased the Co Clean. The smell was strange, but clean, but I soon got used to it. However, I no longer get sores in my nostrils. Although it seems expensive, it is worth every penny to me! Might buy myself the travel version later in the year. Excellent machine, with fantastic service.
