anyone with allergic reactions to mask wipes?

anyone with allergic reactions to mask wipes?
I have been using commercially available wipes to clean my mask cushion  (purchased on a large E commerce site.)   There a a whole slew of ingredients in the wipe and never thought that this could be why my mask cushion  itches so much.  Is anyone opposed to using wipes because of the same reason?   Are there better ways for cleaning silicon mask cushions that won't cause irritation ?     I appreciate the suggestions.

Dawn dish soap or hand soap does a great job. Just need a little bit w/ some water and rub the silicone until it gets tacky again. Make sure to wash your face as well for the best seal.

Try getting a CPAP liquid cleaner and using it to wash your masks afterwards letting it airdry. That's what I do. I use Purdoux CPAP Mask & Hose Soap. I fill my sink with water, add some soap, and let it soak. Afterwards ill put all my items on a towel and let it airdry. To dry your tubes though, you can run a mask fit test on your machine and it'll air dry it faster than letting it sit.

Thank you!   How long do you run your tubing on mask fit to air dry?   Does it take all the water drops out of your hose?

You can also just hang your tube behind the shower head.
