"If the heated tube works with your machine I would try that.  They also make covers for your tubing which may help some.  I think the heated tube may be your answer.  Keep us posted."

"Richard, some folks just use the humidifier in a Passover mode.  They just don't turn it on, but let the air pick up moisture without heat."

I have been using RemZzz's mask liners and like them for the most part. The smallest size is still a little big and touches the corner of my eyes so I trim it. Has anyone tried Quietus? Or are there other brands I'm not aware of?

I've not tried the Quietus ones, but believe if they work well they're better value than the RemZzzs due to being able to wash them - unlike the RemZzzs :(  Lots of us in the UK make our own from old t-shirt-like material.  They're easy to make, great to wash and cost next to nothing.

Pad-A-Cheek makes liners, strap covers, cover for hoses, and all kinds of things.

To Kathy Hope

Can you please give instructions or steps how to make them out of old t-shirts. I have ordered a box of Remzzzs but I want to use something until I get them in mail. I like the idea of being able to reuse them.

my email address rathlaptop@gmail.com

Thank you once again

That's good to hear Buddy.  I've just emailed Victoriya.

I have only used Quietus & understand from others on this board that they are the best & least expensive. Mine are also a bit big & the edge does come up by my eye. I persistantly smooth it around my mask edge & by the 2nd or 3rd night it seems to curl abit and doesn't bother. I would imagine that you can cut it down in size, but the smoothing seems to work for me.

I've tried to wash the Quietus ones, but with little success. Seem to loose the sizing even with additional. I can use one for 7-8 days without any problems. I wash my face well before bedtime so I don't hesitate to do that.
