Can I unbend my mask?

I have a dye i3 mask that's been sitting in my garage for about 5 years, and I just found it's been under a heavy object the entire time, so the entire bottom rubber part of the mask is bent on one side. I'm wondering if there's any way to fix this. Would putting it in boiling water work? Since that's what you do to shape rubber mouthguards..

If you put it in water at a rolling boil then lift it out (do NOT put it in cold water afterwards) and let it air cool then you should be good.

Because he likes his and if it's fixable then why not.

Put it in for thirty seconds to a minute, pull it out and reform it with your hand, and then do it as many times as needed. It's a slow process, but it works.

True^^ it's pretty much like when you first get a mouth guard. You have to boil It and form it

Because I paid $100 for it and there's no reason to waste it. Even if I did get a new mask I would have to sell this one, so i'd still have to repair it anyway.

I love people who think throwing money at the issue is the only solution.
