How to Clean Your Mask:

Washing machine

  • You can include your mask with your regular laundry.

  • Use regular laundry detergent and the warmest appropriate water setting for the cloth used to make the mask.

 

Washing by hand

  • Prepare a bleach solution by mixing:

    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) household bleach per gallon of room temperature water or

    • 4 teaspoons household bleach per quart of room temperature water

  • Check the label to see if your bleach is intended for disinfection. Some bleach products, such as those designed for safe use on colored clothing, may not be suitable for disinfection. Ensure the bleach product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser.

  • Soak the mask in the bleach solution for 5 minutes.

  • Rinse thoroughly with cool or room temperature water.

How to Dry 

Your Mask:

Dryer

  • Use the highest heat setting and leave in the dryer until completely dry.

 

Air dry

  • Lay flat and allow to completely dry. If possible, place the mask in direct sunlight.

Make sure to completely dry mask after washing.

Wearing a Cloth Face Mask

  • Wash or sanitize your hands before & after putting on & taking off your mask.

  • Place your mask over your mouth & nose. Tie it behind your head or use ear loops & make sure it's snug.

  • Don't touch your mask while wearing it.

  • If your mask becomes wet or dirty, use a clean one.

  • Put the used mask in a sealable bag until you wash it.

  • Remove the mask by untying it or lifting the ear loops without touching the front of the mask or your face.

  • Wash your hands immediately after removing the mask.

  • Regularly wash your mask with soap & water by hand or in the washing machine.
