Keeping your CPAP mask and tubing clean is an important step in ensuring your sleep therapy is effective. While there are several ways to accomplish this daily task, the easiest and most efficient way is to use a CPAP cleaner and sanitizer. These devices automatically eliminate 99% of bacteria, germs, and viruses from your equipment. Joining the SoClean 2 and Lumin is Sleep8, a new, innovative travel CPAP cleaner and sanitizer.

Sleep8 Portable CPAP Sanitizer

The Sleep8 CPAP Sanitizer is a handheld, portable unit that effectively cleans your CPAP equipment. It is lightweight and compact enough to use at home or on the road.

How Does the Sleep8 Work?

The Sleep8 CPAP cleaner and sanitizer was designed for simplicity, ease of use. Users simply unplug their CPAP tube from their CPAP or BiPAP machine and re-attach it into the universal port inside the bag. Lastly, just place the CPAP mask and hose inside the bag and seal it.

Using activated oxygen, the Sleep8 cleans, sterilizes, and sanitizes the CPAP equipment without the use of water. The ozone cleaning technique disinfects the equipment, eliminating the breeding ground for germs, mold or other contaminants.

While other models use pressurized air pumps and fans to clean the equipment, the Sleep8 is silent. It also has built-in safety features, such as one-way flapper valves and a safety shut-off to prevent the unit from running when not properly connected.

Does the Sleep8 Work with my Machine or Mask?

The Sleep8 works with all masks, heated or non-heated tubing, headgear, or humidifier chamber. It requires no special adapters or connectors. Simply place the equipment in the sanitizing bag and press start.

How Long Does a Cycle Take?

Once you hit start, a full sanitization cycle takes approximately one hour. The Sleep8 will automatically turn off when complete.

How do I Charge the Battery?

Plug in the Sleep8 with a micro USB charger to begin charging the device. It takes 90 minutes to fully charge the device and each charge will last for two cleaning cycles.

Can I travel with the Sleep8?

The Sleep8 is a lightweight, small device that is cordless and waterless. It is the perfect travel CPAP cleaner and sanitizer and packs nicely in your suitcase or carry-on.

Is there a warranty?

The Sleep8 comes with an 18-month warranty for the device, 12-month warranty for the charger and 3-month warranty for the bag. Replacement parts are available at The CPAP Shop.

What are our customers saying?

“The Sleep8 has worked great! It’s small enough to use for travel. I like that it has a battery and is easy to charge. The best feature for me is the size of the bag. Unlike other small sanitizing machines, the Sleep8 Bag is big enough for me to fit my mask, tubing, and my entire CPAP Machine without having to take anything apart. That’s really convenient! When I let everything rest for about an hour after the cycle is complete, I find the ozone smell dissipates well. Overall, a great product!” – Ant on 4/12/2019.

    How long does the sleep 8 machine last?Do i ever have to get a new one?

    • Chris Vasta

      There is not a predetermined life expectancy for the Sleep8, but it does have a 2-year manufacturer warranty. Eventually, you would need to replace it with a new one.

    Sleep8 bought in 6/18/2019. First used on 7/1/2019. Died on 3/05/2021 after only 20 months of use. Warranty expired on 12/18/2020. Not worth spending $200+ for Sleep8. Will not buy again.

    • Chris Vasta

      Mr. Bierman, we are sorry to hear that the Sleep8 Sanitizer did not meet your expectations. Thank you for your feedback.

  • Ruth-Elaine Blaser

    I use my Sleep 8 every day (I received it December 2). The only issue is that the mask is causing great irritation on my face, leaving rough red marks and swelling everywhere the cushion comes in contact with my face. It is very sore. I have had to apply lotion to the area before putting on the mask and cushion. Now I am told that it is leaking more than it should. What should I do to prevent the irritation and prevent leakage? Thank you.

    • Chris Vasta

      It may be helpful to use a mask liner. You also want to make sure you are still wiping down or washing your mask cushion.

    • Brenda

      I’m having the same issues. First few times I used it, all was good. I just used it a few days ago while traveling and that night I felt an immediate burn on my nose where my nose pillow rests. Today I have dry/rough oozing skin on the bottom of my nose and it’s uncomfortable as all get out!! Looks as if I have been blowing my nose with sandpaper!!

      • Chris Vasta

        Hello, Brenda. We are sorry to hear that you are having this experience. You may be more sensitive to the Ozone than the average person. It may help to take the mask out in the morning and let it air out during the day. It also may help to use a mask liner, or wipe down the cushion once you take it out of the Sleep8 bag.

  • Bill Majka

    Is the machine safe, being it’s cleaned with ozone.

    • Chris Vasta

      The FDA has not approved any ozone or UV light CPAP cleaners or sanitizers devices and is currently working with manufacturers to compile data for a full FDA review on efficacy and safety. Therefore, the safety of using these devices can not be guaranteed. With this being said Soclean has sold a large number of the SOclean2 and most people do not get any adverse reactions.
