To clean the mask, pass it through the washing machine and dryer after use. The water does not need to be very hot, but detergent must be used.

If you cannot use the washing machine, you can wash your hands with soap. Another option: Put the mask in a paper bag and leave it in a warm place for at least two days. After that, the virus will become inactive and will not spread.

When wearing a homemade mask, remember that wearing a mask is not to protect yourself, but to minimize the spread of virus particles to others. Even if you feel no effect, you may not have symptoms.

Homemade masks are less effective in protecting the wearer, because most masks have voids near your nose and cheeks, or space to inhale tiny droplets, and the pores in the fabric alone are usually not enough to capture the tiny atomized liquid drop.

Some materials are better than others. According to published research in disaster medicine and public health preparations, homemade masks manufactured from kitchen tissues proved to be the most effective in removing particles.

On the other hand, T-shirts or pillowcases may be the best choice because they can be stretched to provide a better fit. Avoid using old fabrics, as washing and drying may stretch the pores and allow more particles to enter.



In any case, face masks and masks are generally updated after cleaning 3 to 7 times, and masks of particularly good quality can be cleaned 10 times. Activated carbon adsorption masks should pay attention to regular replacement of the activated carbon interlayer. If the activated carbon interlayer is not replaceable, it must be replaced after 7 to 14 days. This type of mask cannot be reused after cleaning.
