Now, to our second pick:

Top CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizer

Top CPAP, like Sleep8, is compatible with a wide range of PAP machines. Though small, this device has an enviable battery; the battery offers an incredible eight cleaning cycles at full charge.

Also, thanks to Top CPAP portability, it fulfills several purposes. Be it home, office, or travel; Top CPAP got you!

The sweetest deal: Top CPAP offers all the goodies with no noise!

Lastly, about the working principle, Top CPAP uses an activated ozone system. And with it, the device eliminates up to 99.9% germs in your CPAP machine.

Affordable — currently at $139 (at manufacturer’s price), Top CPAP is the best prized on our list. And when you consider this device being all-in-one, that’s a sweet deal!

Cleans and deodorizes — Top CPAP does not only clean your masks, but it also deodorizes such — all in one-click. In essence, you get a disinfected CPAP, with no odor after-feel.

No insurance — oops! Sorry, you won’t be having insurance against damages with a Top CPAP. However, the manufacturer compensated for such shortcomings with:

  • 18-month warranty

3B Lumin CPAP Mask and Accessory Cleaner

Our third product, 3B Lumin, is the fastest cleaner on the market. Its cleaning cycle only takes a maximum of 5minutes. As such, there is no waiting time.

More importantly, Lumin leaves no time for the accumulation of dirt on your CPAP machine.

Unlike Top CPAP, Lumin works with an ozone-free system. Instead of ozone, Lumin adopts UVC. UVC?

The Ultraviolet-C is a medical-grade, human-safe light. Lumin uses the widely-used ray to give the instantaneous kill to the microorganisms on your masks.

Easy to maintain — with Lumin, you have no filters to clean or replace. As such, it requires almost no maintenance duties from you.

Several applications — in addition to your CPAP, you can use Lumin to clean and sanitize your household tools (such as hearing aids, toothbrushes, and even toys). As long as the objects fit inside your Lumin, it does the rest!

After-use odor — despite all the sweetness of Lumin, it often leaves an unpleasant residual impression on your nose. Though harmless, the odors remain displeasing.

SoClean 2 Go Travel Equipment Cleaner

If you’re looking for a CPAP cleaner from a reputable company, look no further than SoClean 2. SoClean (the company) is arguably the father of automated CPAP cleaner and sanitizers.

So, rest assured you can do no wrong acquiring SoClean 2 for your travel needs. This device also promises a 99.9% eradication of germs off your CPAP masks.

Compact designs — SoClean 2 is a sleek device that fits virtually anywhere. For that reason, you can use it at the home, office, or on the road.

Easy to use — compact designs also means the SoClean 2 has little complexes. Other than being battery-enabled, the device has a simple layout. Within seconds of purchase, you’d crack the use even without a manual.

Inferior material — for the price SoClean 2 demands (currently almost $300), the make-up material is of a low standard. The product is a mix of cheap plastic that wouldn’t survive a full year of consistent usage.

Genmine Portable Mini CPAP Cleaner Disinfector

Like SoClean, Genmine is compact-size and a product from one of the market leaders of CPAP cleaners. Also, it operates with a single click of a button.

As a result of its simple design, Genmine is easy to maintain and use. It is also a perfect fit for the road, thanks to its 2200mAh battery.

Several applications — in addition to your CPAP machine, Genmine also cleans and disinfects humidifiers as well as ventilator tubings.

Takes too long to clean — Genmine’s single cleaning cycle takes at least 25minutes. What now happens in urgent cases? In essence, such time-wasting will frustrate you!


Now, you’ve seen our top CPAP choices. But don’t be in a hurry to pick any!

Consider your current needs and conditions first. Where do you need the cleaner? What purpose would it fulfill? Would you have time to maintain its pipes and filters? Can you even afford the device?

After carefully analyzing those questions, only then would you make the best decision for yourself!
