How to wear and care for your fabric mask

Wearing your mask:

  • Choose a side and always wear the same side against your face
  • Make sure your mask fits snugly against your face, covering your mouth and nose
  • The more snugly your mask fits against your nose, the less problems you may have with glasses fogging
  • When you remove your mask, don't touch the front of it and wash your hands afterwards

Cleaning your mask:

  • You should clean your mask if you wore it for more than 4 hours or if it is damp
  • Masks are washable; machine wash or hand wash with detergent
  • Masks can be air-dried or machine-dried on high heat
  • You can sanitize your mask by ironing it (with or without steam)
