RE: Hygeine
I suppose putting the bits and pieces in the dishwasher are out of the question?

I think that depends on what you have. The Resmed humidifier tank is supposed to be dishwasher proof, though I haven't tried. I don't think the hose would go well in a dishwasher, especially the heated type. And I don't think I'd trust my Quattro Air in there either - the seal seems pretty delicate.

I hang my mask and hose every day. I give the mask a wipe with Resmed wipes mid-week, then as a Saturday ritual I wash everything in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Everything air dries.

Each night before going to bed I shave and wash my face well to get the skin completely smooth and clean.
