Boiling Nasal Pillows

Well, I really want to be sure it gets clean deep in the crevices.

Failing that, maybe be sure that I kill off any germs feeding on the residual gunk in there from time to time. I might start doing a quick dip in boiling water.

Improving the drying process would be nice, too. I usually dry the hose on an old CPAP machine, so I may just hook the mask up on the end and blow dry it, too.

I did reject one nasal mask because the flap and the cushion were one piece and there's no good way to clean down in the crevice where they come together. However, I do love my Swift FX mask now.

I don't have a lot of confidence in the cleaning when you soak the parts in soapy water. That seems like a way to just spread the germs around to me.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
