I have heard using the wrong materials can warp the mask and cause leaks. I am sure their are cheaper methods then the wipes found on CPAP websites.

Thanks for the Info.

I was told by my unit supplier to use warm water with a small amount of Dawn dish detergent. He said use only Dawn because it was milder than the others. Hope this helps.

RE: mask cleaning
Use Dawn Liquid every morning on the nasal pillows.
The rest of mask and hose get cleaned once a week.

RE: mask cleaning
I took my mask and hose into the shower with me and dribbled some Dawn over it.
