How to take care of your mask:
It's recommended to wash your cloth mask after every use, which is why many people have more than one. Here's how to wash your mask, either in the washing machine or by hand.
Machine washing the mask: Since cloth masks are handmade and feature straps or earloops, it's a good idea to place them inside a laundry bag to wash them in a washing machine. These zippered mesh bags ensure straps and loops won't get tangled inside the machine.
If you don't have a laundry bag on hand, you can use a pillowcase. Zippered pillowcases function the same way as the laundry bag (as long as they aren't waterproof), and you can fit several masks inside at a time. If you don't have one on hand, you can use a regular pillowcase, tie it into a knot, and use a hair elastic or rubber band to secure it.
Hand washing the mask: If you have to hand wash your mask, you'll need to fill up a sink with hot water and detergent. Another option is using a laundry basin or oversized food storage container. Whichever container you choose, make sure your hands have enough room inside to rub and scrub the mask for no less than 30 seconds. Then, let the mask soak for a full 30 minutes and rinse it thoroughly to remove all traces of soapy residue.
