What’s the best way to clean a mask?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, masks should be washed regularly. Always remove masks correctly and wash your hands after handling or touching a used mask.

  • 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
  • Use the highest heat setting and leave in the dryer until completely dry
  • More information about mask-wearing and mask care can be found on the CDC website.
