Why is there a “clean” scent on my mask after sanitizing?
The "clean" smell that is sometimes described as similar to the scent air after a heavy rain or thunderstorm. In-fact the scent in both cases is caused by ozone. Ozone occurs naturally after lightning storms, and is also the sanitizing agent we use. If you do not like the smell, just let the tube sit outside the bag for a while. Further, you can run your CPAP for a few minutes before you put it on to further reduce the scent.
What is ozone?
Ozone is the sanitizing agent “activated oxygen,” also known as trioxygen, due to the fact that it is comprised of three oxygen atoms.
Is ozone safe?
Yes. Once ozone, or “activated oxygen” comes in contact with the air it quickly dissipates. When it is concentrated and safely contained within the PrimeClean bag, it works as a sanitizing agent to kill live bacteria and any living particles things.
