Works well; Documentation could be better
I use a TAP PAP, and my nose was getting red and a bit crusty where the nasal pillows rested on my nostrils. I figured it was probably some bacterial thing and I needed better cleaning, so I ordered some of this disinfectant. It worked beautifully.
The solution is concentrated: it only takes about 1-1/2 teaspoons and a quart of water to make a dunking solution that will last for two weeks (after which you dump it and make a new batch). I dunk my TAP PAP in it each morning for 10 minutes, rinse it in warm water and set it on a clean towel to dry, and no more skin irritation.
The stuff seems to be intended for medical laboratory use, based on the directions. They talked about testing the solution's strength with test strips (not included, nor indeed even described in any detail), and ensuring a minimum strength of 1000ppm (parts per million); the latter begging the question: 1000 WHAT ppm? Then they say to run hot water for 3 minutes before rinsing the stuff off (flushing any bacteria out of the plumbing, I assume). Hey, we're in the middle of a drought, here! Anyway, I'm not too worried about super-sterility; I'm just putting the appliance in my mouth and against my nose, not performing surgery with it. Plus which, the TAP PAP will deform if you hold it under hot tap water for more than a few seconds. For me, a quick rinse with warm water is just fine.
So 5 stars for performance, minus one star for mediocre directions. By Marc, San Jose, CA

Control III Cleaning Solution & Disinfectant
Easy cleaning and disinfectant! Should have purchased this a long time ago! By No More Sleepless Nights, Maryland
disinfectant for cap
I'm sure this works great, however I think this is more for hospital or hostile care, as when I got it, directions said was for stopping spread of AIDS/HIV colds etc. Since I was using for just myself it wasn't necessary, and don't have those diseases. By Shane, Bellevue
This product is wonderful! I was hesitate to use it on my pillows after reading the bottle, but if you follow the diluting instructions, it works just fine. My pillows and cushion did not dry out, came out clean and disinfected and the product left absolutely no odor. I soaked my hoses in the solution for ten minutes, as directed, and they came out nice and refreshed. It was like having new equipment!! By Lynn, Charlotte
