So I washed the Airtouch F20 Mask with Memory Foam
#1
So I washed the Airtouch F20 Mask with Memory Foam
I know these manufacturers recommend throwing away the mask but I think masks generally can last much longer than what they recommend.
I thought I share something I found out with the new  air touch f20. For those finding it tough to make money and have the F20 mask with the memory foam but want to clean it. I did an experiment on one I had used for about 2 weeks as it got dirty and I was about to throw away. I used the soap free detergent that sleep clinic sold and washed it with that. Fortunately, I have had great success with cleaning it as no one likes a dirty mask but it will take longer to dry out and go back into shape but it's worth it if you want to expand the life on it. I soaked it in the detergent water, though be very gentle with it and wash it thoroughly. You can squeeze the foam but but don't do really hard presses and you can tear the foam. Just note though, the foam maybe out of shape for a day, but it should be back to shape once it's let out to dry. See if this works for you in one that you are about to throw out.

Thanks for sharing.  How long does your foam mask normally last? ( without this type of cleaning)

Resmed says that you should replace it after 30 days. That to me is ridiculous. They cost 30 dollars a pop

So I’ve been washing the mask and all and putting in vinegar as instructed for all my masks and tubes. Received no instructions to NOT wash. Anyway, seems to work just fine.

I'm at 60+ on mine and all I have done is wipe out the mask with a Clorox wipe. Looks and feels like it has plenty of mileage to go.
