How I was cleaning my cpap machine
Cleaning my CPAP machine has always been one of the most dreaded things that I have ever had to do. And it is not just because of the fact that my machine is dirty, but more importantly, that I hate doing it. But how to clean it? How fast to clean it?
Well, the answer to these questions is pretty simple. The fastest way to clean your CPAP machine is to simply go to your local drug store and pick up some dry ice. Now, I know what you are thinking. Dry ice isn't something you would probably use for something as important as cleaning your CPAP machine. However, this dry ice method is actually one of the fastest and easiest ways to quickly clean out the air chamber.
How to do this? Simply place some dry ice into the machine and then attach a hose onto the hose on top of the machine. You will then need to blow some air through the hose while at the same time heating it up. This process is going to help get rid of all of the allergens and bacteria that tend to build up in the air chamber of your machine.
Now, the quickest way to clean your machine is to use a cleaning agent. These cleaning agents come in all different forms. For most people, using a good old fashioned toothbrush is the fastest method of cleaning. Simply take your toothbrush and run it over your CPAP machine a few times per day. After a while of doing this, you will find that the machine will begin to clean itself.
Of course, this cleaning process is only going to be effective if you start when you start experiencing symptoms of allergies. So, it is important that you keep track of when you begin to feel ill. You can even purchase an electronic thermometer that will tell you when you are ready to change the filter or brush in your machine. The reason why these thermometers work so quickly is because they can easily detect a slight temperature change.
After a period of time passes, you should then switch to a cleaning solution. Some people prefer to use Purell, which can be found in most drug stores. You will then just follow the instructions provided with the cleaning solutions to clean your CPAP machine. Be sure to rinse off any cleaning solutions that you use, and keep your CPAP machine clean and properly maintained.
