Been using my Tusa mask for about 4 years now. Clear silicone goes a milky white after a while and there are some black mould growing on it despite dismantling and cleaning it every once in a while. I noticed that the longer you leave the mould stains without washing, the more permanent they get and are a b*tch to get out. So if you notice mould stains between the lenses and the frames/silicone, clean them quick. I believe its because of residual spit that goes onto your mask that may contain bacteria that contribute to mould buildup. But I'm just guessing...

No one ever told me that cockroaches have a taste for clear silicone!  >:(
Found that out the hard way. After a week leaving my mask out in the open, I came back to find my mask chewed on on the thinner sides of the silicone! Minor damage since it still doesn't leak, but please seal your mask in the container it came in if you don't plan on using it for a while.
