Post-Wear Face Mask Care:
We thought we’d add in a little section about face mask care for you to read through because it’s become an increasingly important subject over the last few months! As per UK government recommendations, you should be washing your reusable masks after wearing them for a day, so if you haven’t been doing so already, please get those masks in the wash!
Many masks will be machine-washable however, some of them have specific care instructions based on the material they’re made from or if they’ve been treated with any antibacterial solutions. Therefore in order to clean the masks safely, make sure to check if the brand has any specific wash and care instructions published online (tip: it’s usually in the FAQ section!) or in the pamphlet from the box. Follow those to ensure the mask lasts!
Keep in mind that some of these face masks require additional filters and protection as they have not been certified to protect against infection. Be sure to look out for the CE certified stamp on the product packaging, if you’re looking for a mask that has been tested and follows regulations!
