Tim replied to Bob Schwartz's discussion Gear washing
"The biggest thing is to dump the humidifier and let it dry daily. A 50-50 solution of white vinegar makes a good sanitizer for CPAP equipment. Rubbing alcohol can damage silicone and other soft parts."

Tim replied to Kath Hope www.hope2Sleep.co.uk's discussion "Smashed Face Syndrome" - I object to this title. Do you?
"Ihatecpap is a very "special" site, and its entire purpose is to drive people away from CPAP and to an oral device -- that they sell. I have been on CPAP for about 16 years, and I don't have any indication of a "Smashed Face…"

Tim replied to JanSaysHello's discussion Ozonated Distilled Water
"Ozone is very unstable and doesn't stick around very long; there shouldn't be any ozone left in the water by the time you buy it. If there were ozone in the water, exposing the jug to sunlight for a couple of hours should remove it. If you…"
