#1
Well,after several year's of trying this&that.I've finally found it.Has a mouth breather.I've struggled trying to find the perfect chin strap.Well,finally got it.The Deluxe strap is great.But,a month or so ago I was struggling with being stop'd up.Thought I would try a little vick's vapor rub.Wow!!!This stuff work's like a charm.Sleeping thru the night 6-8 hour's&also my leakage rate has drop'd since switching chin strap's.Haven't had any problem's with the vick's messing up my nasal mask.Told a co-worker about my find&he stop'd me last week&said Thank You!!..He tried it&it work'd for him too..I don't worry about messing my cushion up.I get a new one every 3 month's.But,I've been washing them has normal.Once a week&haven't seen any problem's.Just thought I would share.

Thanks Hoseman for sharing.
I used to use that on my kids when they were stuffed up and swore by it. I had forgotten all about it. Thanks for the reminder.

Way to go, Hoseman! I might give Vicks a try next time I get stopped up. Mom used to rub it on our chest when we were children and had a stuffy "cold". I haven't used it in years - but think I'll get a jar of it next time I'm at the store. THANKS for the reminder.

I just read this tip, so will pass it on to my husband. He gets a sore nose every night from his P10 pillows. We've tried everything, and now will try this. Thanks so much!

Hi Hoseman,
Glad to hear that the Vix is helping you and that you are getting a good nights sleep now.
Keep up the good work.

Vicks works but after reading a Mayo clinic report on it I stopped using it with the pap machine. It contains camphor. Granted a small amount of camphor but camphor is toxic and absorbed directly thru mucus membranes like inside the nose.

Dont know if using it night after night would really hurt a person or not but with all the other stuff I already got dont need no extra from that. Honestly its not a decongestant. It just gives a cool feeling that tricks the brain into thinking its breathing easier.
Though it does feel like it opens you up

Don't put this in your nose.Will only work if you using a nasal or full face mask.I just put a little around the tip of my nose.I use a nasal mask
