Tap washers

Hi everyone.

I know this probably sounds daft but is there any technique to replacing tap washers. Everytime I replace one it seems to have a very limited life span. The washer appears to get detached from the jumper and gets stuck in the seat of the tap. This has to be prised out with a small screwdriver?

Furthermore when I've changed the O ring in the headgear it is really difficult to reassemble the headgear.

Thanks in advance
