Daily:

  1. Wash mask daily using a mild liquid detergent such as Ivory or Baby Shampoo to remove facial oils that may shorten the life of your mask/cushion.
    • Never use alcohol based products, bleach, lysol wipes or products containing perfumes, lotions or oils on your mask.
  2. Always let air dry.
  3. Empty humidifier chamber daily and let dry. Refill at night prior to use.

Weekly:

  1. Wash and soak mask, headgear, humidifier chamber, reusable filter and CPAP tubing in mild liquid detergent.
  2. Rinse well and allow all parts to air dry.

  2. Replace disposable filter (if applicable).
