What supplies can be washed in hot water and what can’t? I definitely know that the cushions cannot but what about tubing? I already have washed the water chamber though but I’m assuming that the clear soft silicone part that goes into the water chamber can’t either and I’m not gonna try to wash it like that but wondering about the rest of the supplies.

I wash all my stuff in hot water with a bit of liquid detergent. Likewise, rinse in very hot water.

I think it's OK for everything except memory-foam cushions, which should be kept dry.

Yup ditto. I wash all the hoses, humidifier tub, and cushions in hot water and Dawn dish soap.

I soak the parts in hot water and soap. Then come back in a few minutes lightly scrub and rinse with clear hot water and set aside to air dry.

When I do decide to wash its always in hot water...When I used the Quattro mask, I boiled the cushion every few months...I haven't tried it with my Simplus because the silicone is attached to plastic.
