We're finally pleased to introduce a safe CPAP Hose Brush made of silicone, as we've always been too wary of selling the wire ones, due to hearing of many people damaging their hoses.
This new Silicone Hose Cleaning Tube Brush is a welcome product from the Republic of Sleep, taking away the risk of damage to hoses that can sometimes happen with wire brushes. Also, the silicone is more flexible than a bristle brush head as well as safer, and the wire is plastic-coated making it more comfortable to use. There is also a small weight on the end to feed through the tube.
The Silicone Hose Cleaning Tube Brush is compatible with most tubing - both standard 19 mm and slimmer 15 mm hoses, but will not work with the travel CPAP machines with the tiny hoses.
This cleaning brush is more expensive than the alternative wire CPAP brushes, which we've never stocked due to hearing of people accidentally damaging their hoses with them, but this new silicone one is certainly cheaper than having to replace a damaged hose! Instructions for use are included in the packaging, and they do suggest storing it as a coil, meaning less storage space is needed or it can be hung from a hook.
This Silicone Hose Brush Cleaner is compatible with most tubing, but WILL NOT work with the small tubing on travel machines such as the Philips DreamStation or Resmed Air Mini.
CPAP and ventilator hoses should be cleaned at least once a week, as advised by all the machine manufacturers to keep them dust, mould and bacteria-free. This is just as important whether or not a CPAP humidifier is used and if it's not clean and fresh an odour/unpleasant smell can end up being blown into the mask.
I have (very carefully) used a much cheaper 'pipe cleaner' style brush to clean my Resmed hose for the past 4 years. No damage that I am aware of, but the brush is far too stiff to push through the right-angled hose connector, and too short to reach from the other end. This new silicone brush is an entirely different animal - pulled 'backwards' through the hose rather than jammed in forwards. It is therefore long enough to clean the entire length of the hose and critically, is flexible enough to pass through the end connector. It is more expensive, but is a lot safer and in my case more effective too (still assisted with some gentle washing up liquid).

So pleased to hear of yet another excellent review for this new silicone brush, as evidence we've finally found what many of us have been looking for a long time 😊
I was really bad at cleaning my hose and was looking for a brush that would work effectively and not punch holes in the tubing.This IS that brush I was searching for!I added some soapy water to the tube, inserted the weighted end into the tube until it came out of the other end and pulled the weighted end to pull the brush through.It was quite stiff to start with (probably because I didn't know how hard to pull and the build up of gunk!). I threaded it through again and it went through more easily. I could see the dirt lifting from inside the tube. Fantastic job with a great bit of kit.Superbly priced at Hope2sleep - other UK retailers were more than twice the price!Thank you Hope2sleep for another fabulous product at sensible prices.
This review really made us smile Victoria and especially with it being a new product. We agree with you how much we love it without the risk of hose damage. We were sorry to hear it's double the price elsewhere though, but as you know here at the charity, we do our very best to price everything as fairly and cheaply as we can - besides we buy the products ourselves 😊
Brilliant product, easy to use and dries very quickly after use

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3 pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible. Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day. An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list. Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.
All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK. Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders. International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.
Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.
If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.
Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions'), and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold. The Consumer Contracts Regulations 28.(3)(a) confirms exemption as follows:- "exemption in the case of a contract for the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery."
Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage. This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed. A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.
Most of the products we sell are eligible for Zero Rated VAT in the UK and Europe, and in order to qualify, you should meet the criteria for the following HMRC VAT Declaration:-
We cannot advise on individual cases, but more information can be found on HMRC’s website under notice 701/7 on the following link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-7017-vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people.
If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.
Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked. However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.
If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
Any products that our not eligible for zero rate VAT, will not display the VAT Declaration, and VAT will be added at checkout.
