Hi Palerider: That the first I've heard of OxyClean and CPAP masks (if indeed you are saying it'll work on even thin silicone). Do you think OxyClean and the dishwasher are is a good replacement method for boiling cushions in a water and sodium bicarbonate solution (a huge PITA)... in other words, will it extend the life of those cushions
Anyone else tried OxyClean or have an opinion on that topic?
I don't know... my only experience oxycleaning was with the silicone parts inside the s9, which are pretty sturdy. I'd tried dawn, alcohol, baking soda, vinegar, and simple green (degreaser) at least... and the parts were still yellow/brown, not clear. then I figured "well, why not" and dumped in some oxyclean... lo and behold, a few days later, I noticed the yellowing was getting less, and the stench was a bit less too, so I gave it a fresh batch and let it keep soaking.
as to mask cushions, I don't know, but if you've got an old crufty mask cushion... what's the harm in trying?
