I have used DentaSoak in the past but don't like paying $8.00 to ship a 4 ounce box, not to mention that $15.00 price tag is a bit more than common denture cleaners available locally.
I don't want to damage my device, but are there less expensive alternatives that can be used? Possibly one of the cleaners sold by Polident, Fixident, Efferdent or the Equate equivalent?

I searched the site [Moderated. Commercial Link Deleted] of the manufacturer of the Herbst without being able to locate a patient user manual for the Herbst. I located a user manual for dentists, however, it did not contain information on how a patient ought to clean the device!
If you're unsuccessful in getting a manual or actual cleaning advice from your dentist, you may try calling the manufacturer of the device at (800) 522-4636. You may also find information on cleaning the Herbst used in treating sleep apnea by conducting an internet search. Some dentists have advice on their sites on how to clean the Herbst.
I did read advice from dentists advising AGAINST using denture cleaners or mouthwash that contains alcohol as a means of cleaning the Herbst.
