Proper care for head straps for nasal mask

Proper care for head straps for nasal mask
How should one appropriately care for head straps for nasal mask? I received instructions for washing my chin strap but nothing for straps to my nasal mask.

Thanks.

I wash mine in warm soapy warm water, rinse and hang to dry
May be every 3 months or sometimes a bit longer, no hard and fast rules ...

You might inspect them for signs of staining and dirt.

I toss mine in the laundry with underwear or towels...wash & dry. Same thing for the hose cover.

If you mean the Airfit P10, you can throw them in with your other laundry. They are just fabric.

I just wash mine with the mask.
The times I put it in the wash I use one of those laundry bags for dedicates. So they don't get too much stretch during spin.
