How to take care of your mask

Face masks have become a standard accessory these days. As lockdown restrictions have eased, we are going out more and this raises the question how often we should clean our masks, as well as what is the correct etiquette when it comes to wearing masks.

Many people have opted to wear reusable, fabric face masks which are economical, environmentally  friendly and even stylish compared to disposal surgical face masks that come in drab colours and need to thrown away after use.

It’s a good idea to have at least two masks. This way you can have a fresh one while the other is being washed. One way to ensure you won’t have to replace your cloth masks too frequently is to purchase high quality ones with several layers of fabric.

When it comes to wearing masks and mask hygiene here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • If you have spilt coffee or smeared makeup on your mask, you should definitely give it a clean. You should also aim to wash or change your mask every day.
  • Do not pull you mask down to talk to somebody. It is important to keep your face covered at all times, especially in enclosed areas.
  • Make sure you wash your mask properly, either in a washing machine or by hand.
  • Make sure your mask is comfortable and fits snugly over your nose and mouth.
