Small spray bottle with diluted baby shampoo - a quick spritz, rinse, and done.

As you can see there are as many ways as there are members. Cleaning is important, but don't overthink it, and don't go spend money on the so-called cleaning systems. just use common sense and do what you're comfortable with.

Being a "drooler" I first scrub mask under running water and let water flow over it for 5-10min every morning. Once per week I'll soak everything (also hose, headstrap, etc) in warm soapy water, then rinse. Got a "savon de marseille" just for this which is almost as new as it was 1 year ago when I started using it.
