Circadiance recommends using a mild, non-abrasive detergent that is not anti-bacterial to wash the SleepWeaver masks and headgear. Liquid Tide is one example of a mild, non-abrasive detergent product. However there are many other appropriate products available for use.
Circadiance also suggests not to use an oil based soap when washing the SleepWeaver masks and headgear.
Hand wash the elan and headgear using warm (never hot) water and a mild, non-abrasive, non-antibacteril soap. Remove the elbow and rings before washing. After washing and rinsing, allow the mask to air dry, laying flat. Do not place the mask in the clothes dryer. The manufacturer suggests washing the elan daily and the headgear once a week.
"the velcro would not work well after a few months on the headgear that I just replaced."

"I had to order this because the velcro closings on my first one did not hold well. I'm not sure this will be much better. The velcro seems to be not adhesive enough to hold when I roll over in bed"

"Overall I am happy with the mask with two exceptions: There needs to be one size larger for those of us with large noses. The fit, for me, is too tight around the ala and the seal is too easily broken. The velcro fasteners on the headgear wear out way too fast. Some improvement should be investigated."
