cleaning the TAP PAP
I have been using a TAP PAP nasal pillow mask, and really like it a lot, BUT even though I clean it regularly, I have a problem cleaning the area inside the mask frame (the piece that the pillows fit into). There is a line where the parts of the frame are glued together that are impossible to reach with any brush I can find, and there is starting to be a build up along those mold lines. Any suggestions on how to thoroughly clean this part?

Hi dpaschall52,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Have you tried soaking your mask in warm water with control III?
You can find that at the suppliers on the suppliers list here on the board at the top of each page.
Hang in there for other suggestions and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
