How often do you clean or change your mask? Well for me I keep plenty of masks in rotation and I wear a clean mask everyday. To ensure that all my masks stay clean, I have designated  a mask wash day- just like laundry day. 

If you have seen the recent news, cases of COVID-19 have surged in Michigan.  Good people, we can not afford to go back. Wearing a mask and socially distancing ourselves is how we are going to slow spread of the virus. There may be a lot of controversy over wearing a mask, but I would rather wear a mask then to be in the hospital on a ventilator. Michigan’s motto is Spread Hope, Not Covid and I want to do just that. So how do we adjust to our new norm?

Masks and face coverings can help to reduce the spread by about 70%.

If you’re hand washing your mask..

I prefer to hand wash my mask. I have a lot of different masks for different occasions. Some with rhinestones and pretty design. To ensure the integrity I hand wash those masks.

1: Prepare the Solution: I mix baby wash and antibacterial soap alongside warm water. I mix that together to I get nice foam!

2: I dip my mask inside the solution and I scrub scrub scrub !

3: After scrubbing I let my mask sit in the solution for 3 minutes.

4: Rinse my mask in room temperature water.

5: Let the mask air dry or throw them in your dryer.

If you’re washing your mask in machine..

If you are also a person on the go, you definitely wash your mask in your regular laundry. Just make sure you are using the warmest  water temperature for mask cloth material. I usually use the warmest temperature. In addition, I use my laundry detergent alongside the Lysol laundry sanitizer. After you wash you can air dry or throw them in the dryer 🙂
