With a little care and maintenance, you can keep your CPAP machine clean and functional for years.
Every morning, you should hand wash the mask with a mild soap. Give the mask, headgear, and tubing a weekly bath. Hang the tube to allow all water inside of it to drip and dry. If your CPAP has a humidifier, empty and wash its chamber daily, and sanitize it every two weeks. 如小心使用及清潔你每天使用的鼻罩等配件，可使你的呼吸機更耐用。
Cleanning Your CPAP Mask Daily 每天清潔你的呼吸機鼻罩
Use the CPAP mask wipes to wipe it down then let it air dry for a minute or two DAILY. 每天使用呼吸機專用濕紙巾清潔鼻罩，然後風乾。
Wash Your Equipment Weekly每星期清洗呼吸機配件
Give the mask, tubing, and headgear a weekly bath.
Disassemble the mask, frame, fabric backstrap, and tubing. Fill a clean sink or wash basin with warm water and a few drops of mild soap. Submerge your equipment in the sink or basin, gently swish them around with your hand, and let them soak for five minutes. 每星期浸洗你的呼吸機配件包括鼻罩，頭帶及氣喉。
Remove the soapy water, then use the tap water to wash them. 浸後再用清水徹底沖洗。
You can just air dry your mask and headgear on a towel, but you must hang your tubing to dry it. Shake off excess water and manually dry the exterior with a towel. 用毛巾抺乾鼻罩頭帶，再放置風乾。喉管先用力搖晃把積水排出，再掛起風乾。
Reassemble your machine when they are dry. 風乾後重新連接上呼吸機。
Change the Disposable Filter and Wash the Non-Disposable Filter更換及清洗隔塵棉
Many CPAP machines come with two filters: a non-disposable (white or black foram filter) and a white fine replacement filter.
Wash the white/black non-disposable fitler by water and mild soap, squeeze excess water out of it, blot it with a dry towel, then let it air dry. Do that weekly.
Don't wash the white fine filter, replace it monthly or when it appears discolored.
Replace the wihte/black foam filter at least yearly. 市面上的呼吸機普遍有2塊隔塵棉(可重用海棉及即棄隔塵棉). 可重用海棉普遍為白色或黑色，每星期用肥皂清洗再用清水沖洗，風乾再用。建議每年更換。 即棄隔塵棉不能清洗，建議每月更換，或當發現變黑時就需即時更換。
Caring for a Humidifier清洗加濕器水盒
Wash out the humidifier tub after each use. Empty out any unused water from the humidifier chamber each morning. Hand wash the tub with a mil soap water, rinse it well to remove all soapy residue, then let it air dry on a clean towel away from direct sunlight. 每次使用加濕器後，倒去水盒內的剩水，用肥皂水清洗水盒，再用清水徹底沖洗。用毛巾抺乾後再放置風乾，避免陽光直接照射。
Disinfect the tub every two weeks.
Every other week, give your humidifer tub a sanitizing bath in a vinegar and water solution. Mix together one part vinegar and five parts water and soak your tub in the solution for 30 minutes. Rinse it well, then let it air dry away from diret sunlight. 每2星期清洗消毒加濕器水盒，先預備一盒加入白醋的清水(1份白醋加5份清水), 放入水盒浸30分鐘，再拿起用清水徹底沖洗，風乾再用，避免陽光直接照射。
Check your humidifier at least monthly for deterioration.
Check the tub for any signs of wear, deterioration, or mineral deposits at least once a month. Replace the tub if any surfaces are cloudy, pitted or cracks. 每個月檢查水盒有否損毀，如有嚴重花痕，破裂或變形，需即時更換。
