Since I started using a machine over a year ago I have had on;y a few nights where I didn't struggle with major leaks as the pressure ramps up. I've been told about a product that applies to the mask that seals the mask to your face. Has anyone ever tried this product? Comes in a tube like silicone. it is called: "CPAPgel Mask Sealer"

Can't say I have heard of it. I do recall that when ResMed was developing the first CPAP machine, they used glue to attach the masks to the faces of volunteers.

Have not personally used them, but some report good results when using thin cotton mask liners, which you can buy, or make yourself from t-shirt material.

There is a dime a dozen leather cleaners https://cleanhomeguide.com/best-leather-conditioner-for-cars/ in stores and on the Internet. Some are good, some are worse, but each has a different composition. Nobody copies each other blindly. Therefore, starting cleaning with one cleaner, do not switch to another until the interior is completely dry. Cases of burns on leather seats are known due to the incompatibility of the components in the cleaners, which led to an undesirable chemical reaction.

I tried mouth tape, but that gave me a very claustrophobic feeling. I also tried a bunch of chin straps. But don't bother with the cheap neoprene ones they sell on Amazon. They wrap around the tip of the chin and push your jaw directly into the joint. Very uncomfortable. Get the Knightbridge Dual Band chin strap. It lifts from under the jaw and the two bands (one elastic and one non-elastic) make it very easily adjustable to be comfortable. Now my mouth leak rate is very low.
