Headgear replacement ?
#1
How long should one go before they replace the headgear. I replaced mine back in July 2015 and was wondering how does one know when it should be replaced

Also who has the best deals for these

Looking forward to reading your replies[/b]

They lose their stretch; and since I buzz my hair, my hair shreds headgear. So, pardon the pun, but a year is really stretching it.

just ordered headgear and cushion from supplier 10 and the cushion sleeves from supplier 13.

Prices from supplier 10 were far cheaper than others, even after adding on shipping costs

Over a year is rather long. Elastic stretches and weakens with age.

It also deteriorates with hair and scalp oils. Your headgear will last longer if washed weekly or so. I do it in the sink, using warm water, hand soap or shampoo; rinse thoroughly, and hang up on a towel rod to dry. Mine even gets a bit tighter after washing.
