Is there any way to clean that tubing?
I used to use it for months before replacing it but took the advice of someone on this forum and replace it more often now.

It's not necessary to clean the tubing – just keep it dry. Unlike Rosalynn, I would consider it a miracle if my nebulizer lasted 6 months – 6 weeks is usually my best – and new tubing comes with the neb, so I just replace it then.
As for mask-wearing, ever since diagnosed, well before Covid, I have worn one in dusty/windy conditions, whenever doing yard & garden work, and during bad-air or high allergy conditions. It never seemed odd to me as my brother (who is also my winter neighbor) wears one too. So does one of my MN neighbors – we have noticed more & more of the landscape guys around here doing it too.
I continue to use N-95 masks in the garden, but just wear my 3-layer cloth ones now for everyday use. I just came in from raking the winter leaf cover off the gardens, and will put on the N-95 before I begin loading the leaves into compostable bags.
