Your CPAP mask, headgear and tubing must be cleaned weekly to prolong their lives. Products within the cleaning and comfort section will sanitize and help eliminate body oil, dirt, dust and/or bacteria which will aid in comfort and compliance. DO NOT USE alcohol to clean CPAP masks as it may adversely affect performance. DO NOT USE any cleaners containing fragrance or harsh soaps. This will leave residue on the CPAP mask or tubing which effects efficiency. Rinse thoroughly to insure that no detergent/soap residue remains. Headgear can be washed but only air dried. DO NOT USE bleach on headgear.
