3B Lumin CPAP Cleaner Overview
Never hand wash your CPAP mask and accessories again. With the 3B Lumin CPAP Mask and Accessories Cleaner, you eliminate the need for soap and water.
With the push of a button, get completely cleaned and sanitized CPAP accessories in just 5 minutes.
How Does the 3B Lumin CPAP Cleaner Work?
Smelly, harmful chemicals, or water is not needed. The 3B Lumin uses ultraviolet light to zap germs that may be making you sick.
UV radiation is the same method used by hospitals to sanitize equipment. You get medical industry grade cleaning every time in your own home.
Why is UV Light Better than Oxygenated Cleaners?
Oxygenated cleaners use ozone to sanitize CPAP equipment. This can sometimes result in a lingering odor on CPAP masks or tubes. Additionally, these cleaners sometimes require a 2 hour wait time before you can use them again. The ozone-free 3B Lumin is ready to use minutes later.
How Efficient is 3B Lumin CPAP Cleaner?
In just 5 minutes, the Lumin destroys 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, mold spores, fungi, and other germs that settle into your CPAP mask and linger in your water chamber.
Why is the 3B Lumin Necessary for CPAP Users?
Handwashing your CPAP mask and accessories takes time and makes you less likely to clean often. Using dirty CPAP masks and water chambers may be making you sick without you knowing it.
The Lumin saves time and lets you sanitize and clean your CPAP accessories and mask daily. You can easily put yourself on a regular sanitizing schedule without any hassle. You will feel the difference in your CPAP therapy with cleaner, fresher equipment.
What Types of Accessories does the Lumin CPAP Cleaner Clean?
- All types of CPAP masks (no more scrubbing at the sink)
- Your humidifier water chamber (no more vinegar and water)
Lumin CPAP Cleaner - Cleaning CPAP Hoses
The 3B Lumin can sanitize most CPAP hoses. Longer hoses (over 6 feet long) and most heated hoses cannot be properly cleaned by the Lumin sanitizer. For the best results, it is recommended that you continue with proper hose maintenance and cleaning.
3B Lumin CPAP Cleaner - Sanitizing Other Than CPAP
The 3B Lumin is so versatile it goes beyond cleaning your CPAP mask and accessories. You can use it to clean and sanitize other items in your household. Not sure about that old toothbrush? Wary of dirty dentures? Maybe your hearing aid needs sanitizing. All these items can be dropped into the 3B Lumin for quick and easy cleaning.
3B Lumin CPAP Cleaner - What Do Users Like About It?
Reviewers agree that their masks and accessories are odor-free. Handwashing masks leave behind residues of harsh chemicals or the unpleasant odor of vinegar used for cleaning humidifier chambers. 3B Lumin’s odor-free ultraviolet light makes your CPAP equipment a pleasure to use.
3B Lumin CPAP Cleaner - User Reviews
“I love the five-minute quickness of the Lumin. I use it for my humidifier chamber, and you can sanitize toothbrushes and other items in it. I have tested positive for coronavirus or COVID-19, so I am even more grateful to have the Lumin which can quickly sanitize a number of objects. I am using it daily for my humidifier, so I am not breathing in my old COVID-19 particles each night.” - Review by ClaireWithLove
"I bought this cleaner because I was getting irritations on my eyelids and the back of my ears. I eventually traced it to my CPAP humidifier and face mask. I have only used it a few days, but it seems to work well, and the irritations are going away. Now with COVID 19, we use it to clean our paper facial masks that were outside for the pollen, etc." - Review by Tom
“Both my husband and I are CPAP users. Despite multiple cleanings, replacing cushions, etc., I never felt the equipment was sufficiently cleaned. The Lumin takes care of that. No odor, quick, and simple to use." - Review by Cathy
|Works With Any CPAP||No|
|Clean Mask Tubing||No|
It is best to empty the water from your chamber before inserting it into the Lumin because UV light is diffused when it travels through water.
Yes! The UV light used in the fully contained disinfection tray will kill all the harmful bacteria on your equipment without letting any UV light escape and potentially harm anything. The tray drawer has an automatic shut-off feature that prevents UV light from escaping. For additional information about the method used in Lumin's disinfection process, please refer to the White Paper at https://www.3blumin.com/assets/uploads/2018/01/White-Paper.pdf.
The UV Light does not have an odor but when the bacteria is destroyed it can leave a slight sulfur smell which can be eliminated by washing the equipment with dish soap and a damp cloth. Dry with a paper towel. If you do notice an odor, run the Lumin one time with an empty drawer and let it alone overnight. By the next day there will be no odor.
No attachment is necessary but by the nature of the shape of a CPAP hose, it is difficult to get UV light to enter every nook and cranny of the hose, and the company can not guarantee that the hose will be 100% sanitized. Of course putting the hose in the Lumin is better than no cleaning at all. Even special tubing such as the Resmed AirSense 10 ClimateLine Air, when properly fitted into a neat coil with nothing overlapping and inserted into the cleaning tray is at least somewhat disinfected by the Lumin UV light process. The company also suggests turning the hose over and running the Lumin again with the other side of the hose facing up just to be sure the UV light permeates both sides, killing bacteria. If the UV light can successfully penetrate the hose, it will kill all bacteria. However we recommend that you take additional steps to clean your CPAP tubing by using soap and water and hose cleaning brush.
No. Studies have shown that silicone and other plastic weakens when exposed for long periods of times to UV light however the Lumin UV light cycle lasts only 5 minutes. There is simply not enough exposure time to ruin your CPAP equipment in the Lumin.
The Lumin does not remove oils or makeup from the mask. You will need to wash any oils from the mask before or after using the Lumin. It will only sanitize the mask and remove bacteria.
