[Equipment] mask cleaning

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.

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

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