Yes I made a liner out of an old t-shirt. Trace your mask a little bigger than it is on the shirt. I did an extra inch all around. Cut that our then cut a whole for mouth and nose. It worked great and didn't leak during the night

Hi RedX, GREAT to hear that you have resolved your problem for now but if that should stop working you still have the silicon earplug rope to try, in any case, keep us posted on your progress, CONTINUED SUCCESS.!

Rex how wet is your face? On warm humid nights I turn off the humidier. That reduces the moisture and allow the mask to sit tight. It could also be too much air pressure.
