What can I use instead of headgear? Or fix?

I can pretty much guarantee that if you do the above, you'll see a much longer service life from your headgear.  Big Grin

One other note: I don't wash my headgear each & every day. I use a Clorox wet wipe on the mask and cushion about once a week or so. When I do wash the headgear (straps), that occurs about twice a month, and when that happens, as I mentioned above, it gets washed as a complete unit.

Thanks for the advice. I now see why I've needed to replace the blue headgear every few months. But when you say you wash the whole thing twice a month - is that enough for the P30i frame?

I'm not familiar with the P30i. 

The F20 and F30 are both very simple masks and cushions to keep clean. The P30i may be more complex.

Gotcha. I think my P30i frame needs more frequent cleaning.

Yes, I can see yours is much different than mine. Can you leave the straps on while you wash it?

You asked "What can I use instead of headgear". Look at the Bleep mask.

Stacey Burke, are you sure that the headgear with arms works on the n30 mask?  If so it should work on the p10 as well.

I've never used the P10 myself, but I understand that the headgear with arms mentioned is supposed to work on that.

As has been said, leave the headgear attached when you clean it. I wash my frame and headgear weekly and leave it attached and I use a n30i mask. Keeps me from messing up my sizing/fit and having to spend time getting it reset.

I would like to thank you for suggesting the Dreamwear headgear with arms.  I have been using it for about 2 months and it has held my Resmed N30i mask in place better than than the Resmed headgear that came with the mask.  I am an active sleeper, and this has been a huge help.
