How Does SoClean Work?
SoClean works to kill the bacteria, virus, mold, and other pathogens by creating activated oxygen inside. The activated oxygen is one of the most powerful sanitizing agents. The life of the activated oxygen too short, around 2 hours maximum but in the mean time it can destroy all kinds of organic matter. It is this ability that has been utilized in SoClean and SoClean 2 Go to kill all kinds of pathogenic microbes to create a healthy and hygiene breathing tube for a peaceful sleep at night.
SoClean must be connected to the reservoir of the humidifier of CPAP machine. From there the connection goes through the mask and through that to the SoClean device. Once all the connections are done, switch on the device. The device will create activated oxygen molecules and they flood all through the mask, tube and then to the reservoir and runs in a loop for 7 whole minutes. During this time the entire interior of the mask and humidifier will be flooded with the lethal activated oxygen that kills all organic matter on its way.
After the 7 minutes, during which the oxygen concentration is maximum, the device switches off the activated oxygen supply. The created oxygen molecules will work on to kill the bacteria and viruses in the mask. It runs its course for another 2 hours. During this time the oxygen slowly loses its lethal capacity and turns back to normal breathable oxygen. After precisely, 2 hours and 7 minutes from the time it started working, the mask will be once again ready to use.
SoClean sanitizes the mask that is in contact with the skin, the tube, water used for humidity and the interiors of the reservoir where the possibility of bacteria, virus or mold formation is more likely.
How To Use SoClean?
SoClean device can be used with a CPAP with water reservoir for humidification or one without it. If there is a humidifier, disconnect the CPAP tube and connect it directly to the reservoir.
There is a port at the bottom end of the water reservoir of humidifier. With one end of the CPAP hose connected to this reservoir, place the face or mouth mask directly into the SoClean. Take the hose through the port provided and close the lid.
The device can be pre-set with a time at 10 am or operate manually at anytime. You can also change the timer as per convenience.
Insert the CPAP hose from the left or the right side. The unused side can have a plug to close the groove provided for the hose to close the device tight.
The sanitizing time is 7 minutes and the device should be left undisturbed for another 2 hours to complete the process.
Light indicators are provided depicting each stage of sanitization. The red light indicates that the activated oxygen is in full flow. Yellow light indicates that the device is currently running for the stipulated 2 hours resting time. Green light says the sanitization process is complete and the device can be opened to take the mask for its use.
Pre-cleaning the mask and tube is necessary. SoClean is only a sanitizing device it does not remove the dirt or dust. So, clean the CPAP equipment as instructed by the manufacturer.
SoClean 2 Go contain a pre-wash liquid that can be used for cleaning. Mix a little of the liquid in one gallon of water and wash every part of the mask and tube to remove all filth accumulation. Use the SoClean device after this initial cleaning for best results.
All the usage instruction and connections are provided with the manual in the SoClean product package.
Finally, once you take the mask out of the SoClean device to use, blow some clean air through the mask to remove any lingering smell of the activated oxygen in it. Not that it will be there, some people can detect the smallest amount as well. So blow the air for a good 15 seconds before use.
Importance of SoClean
Continuous positive airway pressure-CPAP is a sleeping aid that allows continuous flow of oxygen for the person. People with sleep apnea, a sudden stopping of breathing can have continuous oxygen supply with this equipment. Since the CPAP has a mask that is in close contact with the body, it can get contaminated. The tubes through which the air passes would also be vulnerable to contamination if you are not careful.
The CPAP equipment must be cleaned every single day and an elaborate cleaning is called for once a month. But all these cleaning cannot ensure complete sanitation or elimination of bacteria, mold and viruses. SoClean is the best solution to remove these pathogens.
The season of cold and flu can be harmful to the people who use CPAP as the device can be contaminated easily. It would need to be cleaned thoroughly, every single day which is no less than impossible and time consuming. SoClean does this job easily without any fuss.
Moreover, CPAP devices use a humidifier that provides a moist environment. This moist environment is a favorite place for bacteria like organisms and is most likely to grow in large. SoClean with its activated oxygen can kill every single one of that bacterium and create a healthy path for the breathable air for people suffering from sleep apnea and for those who rely on any PAP devices.
Even if you are an ardent cleaner and clean the CPAP device every day it may not be 100% clean. If you clean the device daily but yet suffer some kind of sickness or can feel a nasty smell through the device or have some kind of skin irritation, maybe it is time for you to get a SoClean sanitizer for your CPAP. The mold inside the hose or humidifier and the oil and dirt from the skin to the mask can cause these problems.
After all people use a CPAP device to get some sleep and is healthy. If these devices are being a main source of contamination they become a curse for those who use it. We don’t want that. So use a SoClean device to clean the PAP equipments for a healthy and sanitized air for breathing.

I finished my masters in finance and worked for the Largest Private sector banking company in India. When the time came, I moved on to something less demanding and more creative. The influence of Indian culture asks us to put satisfaction upfront and I was in search of it. Writing struck me as a possibility and soon a passion. I am not creative but I am very thorough. Technical writing is my forte and at times I do delve into the creative side, though the stint usually lasts not more than a day! I enjoy traveling, reading and shopping.
