Thank you very much,
Daniel and Steve, for all the info on repairing the latex.

I will keep the info for future use.
I cannot spend on the pros-aide right now for this project, as this is a 
test which I am not being paid for, and my budget is at the tightest it's 
ever been.

If I get the repairing contract, I will ask them to pay for the pros-aide.

For this mask, which is already in such a bad shape it is doomed anyway, I 
will try a temporary fix with the cleaning method you mentionned, and 
patching with cheescloth and mould building latex I already have. Or maybe I 
will reccomend them to just apply a good quality duct tape inside.

This is just until they can afford to hire me to make them new masks in a 
much more permanent material. If the masks last 10 years of intensive use, 
they'll be happy, but I aim for a longer lifespan.


This was most helpeful!
Thank you!
