Care instructions

When in use, the mask accumulates skin cells, fat, make-up and small particles. Don’t let that crap irritate your glowing skin and weaken the fabric of the mask. By washing the mask after each use with detergent, you keep the mask tight and your breathing air benign.

  1. After putting the used mask in the washing machine, wash your hands with soap. You can wash the mask at 60 degrees with other laundry. The moistened mask penetrates bugs more easily than a dry one, so after washing, the masks should dry properly with a clothesline or in an drying cabinet. However, you should not use a tumble dryer.
  2. If you are in a hurry for a party, for example, then another good option is to cook the mask for 1-2 minutes in boiling water with a mild detergent. Lift the mask out of boiling water, eg with grill tongs, and rinse the mask thoroughly. You should also rinse the pan if you do not want the detergent to be a new spice in your future soups. Allow the mask to dry well before use. The mask can also be ironed, so it dries faster and is like a new one!
  3. If you are alone and unsure of your washing skills, we recommend starting a dating app instead of a washing machine. You might get advice and in the best case, a home visit by someone! It is also never wrong to ask your mother, husband or wife for help.

Store used masks in either paper or cloth bags according to the zero-waste lifestyle. The coronavirus survives 3 days on plastic, so using plastic bags only transfers viruses into your hands and from one mask to another. If you use cloth bags to store masks, wash or cook them as well.

Temperature significantly affects coronavirus survival. Below is a study conducted about coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 survival in different temperatures. Based on this, even a minute in boiling water is a ticket to hell for a coronavirus.

A permanent mask also sometimes comes to an end of its lifetime. As a Mask Mary customer, you know what to do even in this situation.

  1. Ear loops belong to the energy waste. You can easily remove them by cutting them in one place and pulling them out.
  2. The nose band belongs to the metal waste. Cut the fabric in the nose part and pull the nose band out.
  3. The fabric itself, with the exception of deluxe and sport masks, is cotton, so it is a high quality recycled textile. Cotton fabrics can be taken to either a textile recycling place or a clothing store that collects used textiles.
