Active ingredients:

  • dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride 10%
  • ethylbenzyl ammonium chloride 10%

Volume: 2 Fluid Ounces of Concentrate

Dilution Mixing Ratio: Mix one (1) ounce of Control III concentrate to one (1) gallon of drinking quality water

Storage Temperature of Mixed Solution: 50 to 120 Degree Fahrenheit

Maximum Storage Time of Mixed Solution: 14 Days

Concentrate Shelf Life: 5 Years in Original Container

After extensive in-house testing and comparison of CPAP cleaning products, we found this to be the most impactful, as well as the most cost-effective cleaner on the market. For instance, it is more effective and less expensive than vinegar and water.

It can be used to disinfect and clean mask cushions, mask parts, hoses or tubing, humidifier chambers, etc.

Since you can store any diluted solution for up to 14 days, we recommend getting a small spray bottle, following the directions for dilution and using the spray bottle for everyday cleaning needs.

You can also store diluted solution that has been used for disinfecting in a small container or bucket with a lid and re-use for up to 14 days.

Items must soak for 10 minutes to actually disinfect. It is recommended to pre-clean your items first with a little baby shampoo or some other very mild soap and water before using Control III as a disinfectant.

Please follow the directions on the Control III label for effective use: Control III label Instructions

Cautionary Tips for Discarding Control III

Use proper care when disposing of the Control III Disinfectant CPAP Cleaning Solution. Dilute the mixture before throwing away the container or pouring out the liquid. The water decreases the potential harmful effects of the solution. Then, rinse and dispose of the container.

Is Control III used extensively for respiratory therapy home care?
Nationally, Control III is the trusted product of choice for disinfecting home care respiratory supplies and equipment.
Is Control III environmentally friendly?
Yes, it is. Control III breaks down quickly when released in septic or sewer systems and does not cause harm to human, plant or animal life.
How long will Control III last?
The concentrated form, in the original container, has a 5 year shelf life.

However, once the diluted solution of one ounce of Control III to one gallon of water has been mixed, it can be used for up to 14 days. If the diluted solution becomes noticeably dirty then it should be changed sooner, even if 14 days has not passed. The Home Care Kit comes with Control III Test Strips which once immersed in the diluted solution will change color to indicate if the solution is still active and effective.
Is it effective against spores?
No, it does not kill any spores.
How does Control III kill bacteria without being highly toxic?
Toxicity does not determine bactericidal effectiveness. The active ingredients in Control III attack the core structure of the bacterium by a chemical method of action while simultaneously having a low toxicity level.
Is it effective in killing Tuberculosis?
No, it does not kill Mycobacterium tuberculosis. However, it is effective against many other common bacterium.
Does it irritate the eyes and skin?
The concentrated form of Control III, as it comes straight out of the bottle, is a primary irritant to the eyes and skin. Direct contact of the eyes or skin with the concentrated form of Control III Disinfectant should be avoided.

However, once mixed with water per the instructions, the diluted solution is not an irritant to the skin or eyes.

If you do get it in your eyes, rinse thoroughly for 15 minutes with water. If redness or irritation continues, please contact a doctor.
Does the equipment need to be pre-cleaned prior to disinfecting?
The most vital step in the disinfection of your equipment is proper pre-cleaning. It removes the initial dirt and grime or other matter which may have caused contamination of the equipment. Once pre-cleaned, all items should be rinsed thoroughly with fresh water before disinfection.
What should be used as a pre-cleaning agent?
A mild detergent such as regular baby shampoo or a liquid dishwashing detergent without moisturizers or anti-bacterial ingredients should be used to pre-clean the equipment. Do not use bar or liquid hand soap. After the pre-cleanse, rinse all of the items to be disinfected with fresh water and then immerse in the diluted Control III solution. The proper dilution ratio for disinfecting home care respiratory equipment or supplies is one ounce of Control III concentrate per one gallon of water.

am i using this incorrectly?

Verified purchase | Jun. 21, 2020 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
Whenever I use this product it leaves my masks and nasal pillows feeling tacky and sticky. I have to clean with another product after I use it. Someone else mentioned it sanitizes and isn't really a cleaner. I follow the directions and this happens.

Frozen

Verified purchase | Dec. 26, 2017 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
I hope that the product is not affected by freezing, when I received my order it was frozen solid. The lid was pushed off the Control III which caused me to loose half of it.
