The Seventh Generation wipes do not have any scent at all.

RE: Opinions on mask wipes
I clean my nasal pillows and humidifier each morning by putting a few drops of baby shampoo in the humidifier and filling it with warm tap water. I let them sit for however long it takes me to get dressed. Then I rinse both pillows and the two humidifier pieces under running tap water and place them to dry on the kitchen countertop. By night time they are both dry and ready to use once again. I don't use a funnel to fill my humidifier, just pour it straight from the distilled water jug into the base of the humidifier itself.

I read the reviews on Amazon for 7th Generation. One stated they're great poopy wipes. You can't top that! More than one thing you can use them for.

I think everyone would prefer citrus over baby bottom flavor...

Cool

I have yet to use any of these wipes of any variety. Adding water to the humidity is simply pouring from the gallon jug of distilled water for me.

Thanks for providing me with a great plan! I really am at sea about basics like this! I think your method will work with my restrictions.


The state where I live has no affordable housing to speak of, and heat is extremely expensive. Ergo the hotel, which is a great solution, but not an ideal setup for things that have bits and pieces and require any kind of space. I have stuff hanging everywhere and have to move the stuff hanging from the shower curtain rail when housekeeping comes, just so they can clean the shower.

Baby shampoo is great for a lot of things.....

RE: Opinions on mask wipes
I use an emptied bottle of dial liquid hand soap with the pump. I refill it with whatever dish soap the girls have gotten. I think I'm on Palmolive right now. It leaves a little odor that doesn't bother me. It's green as can be so it doesn't get confused with the antibacterial hand soaps. I keep it on the bathroom sink and carry my mask in when its morning duties time. Throw it in the sink and wash it on my way out. Two pumps of dish soap and I rub it with my fingers till clean. It hangs perfectly on the med cabinet knobs. Grab it at night before I hit the hay. I've not wore a mask out yet. Been using the current mask for three months and I don't notice any difference from when it was new. If I'm picky it may have a looser fit just below my lip, maybe.
Can't advise on your machine for filling. I use distilled water in my dreamstation. I fill it with a narrow neck quart Nalgene bottle that's only had distilled water in it. I gotta watch the teenager because any reusable water bottle gets koolaid or some other flavor booster. I stick with distilled water because I'm too ornery to pack the humidifier tub with me in the morning. The tap water here does leave deposits after evaporation.

The tap water here probably has lead in it. The pipes are prehistoric.

RE: Opinions on mask wipes
Halfasleep, if water is limited or difficult to get to because of physical limitations, I recommend the mask wipes. You can make your own wipes with Bounty Paper towels in a container with a little mixture of water and baby wash. Some suggest adding tea tree oil or similar to eliminate bacteria.

Tap water with lead in it is a non-problem unless you are drinking it.

Great idea on the paper towels. I can get around fine, but I live in an old hotel, ergo the leaded pipes.

I believe one would absorb lead through the pores, eyes, lips, and nether parts....
