Is there a way to make the CPAP machine continue to blow even when I'm not using it?

Letting it run a minute or so a few times a day will probably clear out the smell about as effectively as letting it run all the time.
Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

How much vinegar would you say makes a mild solution?

I think the rule of thumb is 1:10 vinegar to water. It's what I use to do my cleaning. Well, basically I kinda do a "fill the sink and dash some in there" thing. You don't want too much or you are smelling pickles all night.
