Remzees?
#1
I have been using Remzees mask liners to get a better seal on my Quattro air which I love but leaks and causes bright red cheek spots. The Remzees work like a charm.
But they are expensive. I have been washing and reusing them. Does anyone else use Remzees? Do you wash and reuse? They are expensive.

Lukie try this with your liners:
Use fine elastic thread and sew a single strand around the outer perimeter of the liner. Pull it just tight enough that it pulls in and puckers a bit. Now it will stay in place on the mask. It also helps to keep it from ending up in your mouth.

I don't use liners anymore since switching to nasal pillow Swift. BUT once upon a time I used a liner for a pattern and cut some out of an old Tshirt. Worked fine. Oh, it was a clean old Tshirt.

Lukie, here is what I do, I bought some Remzzz’s mask liners a 6 pack and although they say to only use them once you can wash them and get about 5-6 uses. I then made a template of what I needed from their liners and went to a fabric shop and got 3 ft of 50% cotton / 50% poly fabric and cut out my own and they also last 5-6 uses, the next time I bought 3 ft of 50% cotton / 50% lycra fabric. That last me about 3 months and costs about ten dollars. No need to do any sewing.

In the US, some can claim them on their insurance you may want to check that.
