Fit Life Mask
Hi I am currently using the Fit Life XL and to be honest its a good mask for me and I have tried a few. But it leaves me with marks down my cheeks which look like two big scars. Has any one made a liner for this mask and if so what material is best to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Hi skullduggery,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You can make your own mask liners out of an old TShirt..
Check the supplier list at the top of the board at the lef side of each page and see what they have.
another thing you could do is, google either Padacheak or RemZZZS mask liners and see if they make them for your mask.
Hang in there for more suggestions and much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy.

RE: Fit Life Mask
we have made some mask liners for other type masks. tee shirt not really effective without stabilization. It is just too stretchy, but added stabilization implies you'll likely be sewing. I tight flannel may work.

The one I am using right now is tee-shirt material, ironed onto a thin fusible interfacing. inner edge is rolled over the reverse side, and stitched down. the rolled edge is a comfort (itch preventative) feature.
