Odor of plastic

by Marilynn B

Am desperately trying to learn to use C-pap (I'm exhausted) but cannot tolerate the mask--FitLife with headgear. Before even addressing the fit, I cannot get past the horrible plastic odor of the mask. Any suggestions to remove this stink? I washed it as directed to no avail.

Thanks for any help.

• I am so sorry Marilyn but I don’t have a good answer for you. However I do recommend you to go the source of the problem for a solution.

• Respironics Fit Life in my clinical experience has a very low success rate.
As far the smell is concerned, the best advice I have to offer is call the Manufacturer - Respironics directly at 1-800-345-6443.

• You could also reach out to the many CPAP forums and connect with other people who have that same problem. They can perhaps share with you their solutions first hand.
