That being true too, I think I'd look around at other sources for the problems you're describing. You haven't mentioned where you're from so I can't weigh in on whether or not I would guess seasonal difficulties. If you were here where I am, that's what I would do. Talk to the Docs and the sleep doc folks.
As far as Controll III, or other heavy duty things are concerned: I'm of the very staunch opinion that there still has been no better disinfectant than good old chlorine. So if you add a SMALL amount of bleach to a bowl of water and soak your stuff for an hour or so, nothings going to be alive. Just be sure to rinse everything well before you start sucking on it again.
Hi! Yes, I'm tried just about everything, but I didn't think about a little Clorox! And yes I do use only distilled water. Seasonal allergies could be the culprit and throw in a couple of long haired cats! i work hard to make sure I clean up the cat hair and All. I moved from the south to the northeast coast recently but I was having cpap issues prior to the move. Thanks for your response!
