Now, are you ready to get started? Here's an in-depth look at face mask sanitation:
How To Wash Your Face Covering
In the Washer
If your face mask doesn't contain a valve, one of the easiest ways to sanitise it is by simply throwing it in the washer. You can even put it in with a load of your clothes or other household items.
You don't have to use special detergent or cleaning solutions. All you have to do is use your regular detergent and follow the fabric label's appropriate washing settings. It's as easy as 1,2,3!
To wash your face mask by hand, you can easily do so in a sink. First, turn on the hot water and let your face covering soak for about three to five minutes.
Then add a few small drops of anti-bacterial soap to your face mask. It will help to kill any bad bacteria that are on the mask.
You'll want to use the mask to scrub itself. When scrubbing, make sure to scrub each part of the face-covering, including the bands. Allow the mask to soak in the soap for a few minutes, then rinse it off with cool water until no soap remains.
How To Dry Your Mask
Simply hang your face-covering in direct sunlight, anywhere in your home or lay it down and wait until it dries. It may take some time for the face mask to fully dry; thus, it's best if you have other masks to wear for the time being.
