I have just received my new Resmed Quattro FX mask, for when I have the flu, like now, when neither pillows or nasal masks work for me. Kudos to supplier 10 for getting this to me in 4 days!
Like the nasal mask - this thing reeks of plastic out of the bag and this shuts down my sinuses. fortunately I could air and wash and air the nasal mask before I used it over a couple of weeks - using my pillows instead.
However I will have to use it tonight as my nose is just too clogged up to think of any nasal only approach.
I have given it a quick wash a soft soap which has helped a fair bit - is there any other tips to de-stench this quickly?
Usually when I get a new mask I soak it in warm soapy water for quite a while and then I dry it.
Sounds like you have already done that from what you said in your post.
Hope you get to feeling better soon and in case I forgot, WELCOME! to the forum.!
You've done all that I would do. Wash with soap and let air dry. I've always wanted to try putting in plastic bag with baking soda to see if it does any good.
