SoClean 2 CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizing Machine Review

November 12, 2019 | CPAP Reviews & Ratings |
SoClean sanitizing device.

For patients who use CPAP machines, the masks and machine parts need to be cleaned daily. Traditionally, CPAP users were encouraged to wash the parts of their machine and mask with mild soap and tap water. In addition, the lengthy process included washing by hand and then allowing the parts to air dry before putting away for the next day. With the introduction of the SoClean 2, users can now thoroughly sanitize their equipment without disassembly and sleep knowing their equipment is 99.9% germ-free. 

Key Features of SoClean 2 CPAP Cleaner & Sanitizer

The SoClean 2 is an automated daily equipment cleaner. The small, bedside unit sanitizes and disinfects CPAP accessories including the mask, headgear, tubing, and water reservoir, without chemicals or water. Instead, the machine uses activated oxygen to eliminate mold, bacteria, and viruses that come in contact with the CPAP equipment. The unit was designed to accommodate any mask type. 

SoClean 2 Cleaner & Sanitizer Ease of Use

The SoClean 2 CPAP cleaner and sanitizing machine was designed to be user-friendly. The machine can accommodate all types of masks, from nasal pillow to full face. And no disassembly is required. Just place the mask directly into the SoClean 2 chamber and press start. The cycle light indicator will tell you every stage of the cleaning process. 

SoClean 2 Maintenance/Cleaning

First, when first using the SoClean 2 CPAP cleaner and sanitizer, begin by applying the pre-wash included in the kit. The pre-wash eliminates any pre-existing odors or residue from the manufacturing process. 

To keep your SoClean 2 CPAP cleaner operating properly, you will need to change the check valve assembly and filter cartridge every six months. The SoClean 2 cleaner will also alert users when they are close to needing a replacement.

Pro & Cons: SoClean 2 CPAP Cleaner & Sanitizer Machine

Most CPAP machine manufacturers and sleep physicians recommend rigorous cleaning procedures for CPAP equipment to minimize the risk of infection and illness. There are a couple of ways your CPAP machine and mask can cause illness. For example, the bacteria from dead skin and oils can build up on CPAP masks and spread to the tubes. Or, contaminated standing water in the chamber can breed harmful germs you end up breathing in.1

The SoClean 2 CPAP cleaner and sanitizer meets the highest hygiene expectations by destroying 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, and mold in an automated, time-saving disinfecting cycle. You’ll be less likely to have colds and infections, more likely to keep sickness at bay, and the air you breathe will be cleaner. Note: Sanitizing equipment does not replace the need to clean your machine parts and masks.

Certainly, the cost of yet another piece of CPAP therapy equipment might seem unnecessary. Plus, CPAP cleaners are not covered by Medicare or insurance. As our customers can attest, the health benefits and time-savings are worth the additional investment in your health. And with The CPAP Shop, there are always promotions and sales plus financing to offset some of the upfront expenses.

What Are Our Customers Saying?

 “Waited and read multiple reviews before buying SoClean…love the machine wish I had bought sooner!!” – Review by Michaelene on 9/7/2019

“I’ve had mine for about a year now and wouldn’t be without it. Also, it is so easy to use and saves me a lot of time not having to clean my equipment manually. It gives me peace of mind to know that 99.9% of all germs are being eliminated. The SoClean is worth every penny, a great investment for your health.” – Review by Rick on 7/14/2019

“My life has changed so much since using this machine. No infections and goop in the back of my throat, no more bronchitis! Thank you SoClean!” – Review by SuBee on 1/30/2019

“I have used this product for a little more than a year. And every night I look forward to the benefits this machine offers. I no longer wake up with the “uckies” in the back of my throat (which I assume is the many germs that gather there each night in my mouth). I absolutely love this machine. Wish I had it for my entire CPAP life (about four years). If you don’t have one of these – you need to get one.” – Review by trecardtony on 9/29/2018

“This machine is great, it works as advertised, and is just the right size for my full face mask. I have used it for less than a month and all my problems are gone. No more stuffy noses, no more headaches and no more sinus problems. Here in Hawaii we have a big problem with molds and fungus growth, so the ozone does the trick. I recommend this machine for every CPAP User.” – Review by Clark on 7/2/2017

    Smartest thing I did buying So Clean2. Headgear I wash everyday and it has extended the life and functionality easy beyond 6 months.

  • Antoinette Feldman

    My So Clean machine make my CPAP equipment smell, I wake up with a headache, sore throat, my chest hurts, when I take deep breaths, Is it normal for the smell to be so strong, am I breathing ozone gas can you help me please, Thank You

    • Andrew Rivenbark

      Make sure you are allowing your CPAP equipment time to air out between running the SoClean and starting your CPAP therapy. Do not remove your equipment until the light on the SoClean is green. The ozone contacts the equipment only, so you are not breathing any in. If you feel that your device may not be working properly, contact our customer care team at 866-414-9700.

  • Marian

    I have had my machine for several years. My so clean use to have an ozone odor when it was in operation. It no longer does… is this a problem? Or sign it’s not working? I use to notice the smell would subside when it was nearing the time to replace the filters.
    It has a new filter and still no odor.

    • Andrew Rivenbark

      Per SoClean, the device has been tested successfully to run longer than 5 years. As long as the filter and valve are being replaced every six months and the unit is still running properly, there should be no reason to suspect that your SoClean is malfunctioning.

  • Linda L Buckwalter

    I have had my So Clean for a couple years. Went to use it today, plugged it in, pushed the button and it runs for maybe 5 minutes and turns off. Can you please tell me what I can do to have it repaired.

    • Andrew Rivenbark

      Hi Linda. Sorry to hear you are having those issues! Contact our customer care team at 866-414-9700 and they will be able to help you troubleshoot the problem, or facilitate a warranty claim (if eligible).

  • Anthony Amin

    My machine doesn’t detect when my hose is in and will not clean.
    What should I do

  • Steven Rice

    Owned one for almost 2 years had to stop using it. Caused sinus problems. Will never use again

    • Chris Vasta

      We are sorry to hear that the Soclean machine did not work out for you. The Lumin sanitizer using UV light instead of ozone if you are looking for an alternative. Thank you for your feedback.

  • Roberta

    How do I know when machine is done? the yellow light has been on for over an hour. Does that mean it I’d done

  • Theresa

    I was noticing that while looking over the pros and cons of this product it states that the equipment still needs to be cleaned besides using this machine. Stated above under Pros: Note: Sanitizing equipment does not replace the need to clean your machine parts and masks. My question is, why would I need to also clean everything as usual (without this machine) if that is what this is for?

    • Chris Vasta

      The sanitizes will get rid of bacteria and germs, but they not have a physical agent like water to be able to remove dirt, oil or other solid material.
