Disposable masks can be problematic for those with sensitive or troubled skin since they trap moisture and supply the perfect environment for germs to breed. Bamboo masks are the ideal solution for anyone looking for a comfortable anti-bacterial face mask. Taking diligent care of your bamboo face mask can ensure that it can perform at peak performance. Learn how to care for your bamboo facemask below.
Benefits of a Bamboo Face Mask
The bamboo face mask features dual layers, tight-knit outer construction, adjustable ear loops, and a nose wire. These features help to give the bamboo face mask an advantage over other types of cloth masks. Some of the other benefits of the mask include:
- Improved hygiene characteristics, including the ability to fight odors more efficiently than polyester or cotton masks.
- Guard against undesirable bacteria that can aggravate a variety of skin problems, including acne and eczema.
- Eco-friendly and biodegradable.
- An extra layer protects against the transmission of tiny particles or droplets in the air settling in or absorbing through the mouth or nose.
- Highly resistant to shrinking and fading in the wash.
Caring for Your Bamboo Mask
It’s essential to know how to care for your bamboo face mask. Keeping your mask in excellent condition helps to keep you safe and prevents unnecessary wear and tear. In addition, you should try and wash the mask after each use to get the most health and safety benefits. Masks will typically last anywhere from 30-50 wash cycles, depending on how you handle them.
It is good practice to have at least two at any one time to have a fresh one available while washing the other one. In addition, you should store clean masks in locations where they cannot be exposed to contamination or transmit any contaminants that are already on them. Have a “mask hook” near the front door can be a good place to keep masks for easy access and also prevent them from rubbing against other objects or getting lost.
For washing, it is recommended that you do the following:
- Cold machine wash with similar colors.
- Tumble dry on low.
- Do not use bleach.
It would be best if you washed your hands before and after removing your mask. Try not to touch the front of the mask or your face. Gently pull your mask off by gripping the ear loops. Fold the mask up and either throw it into a laundry machine or a disposable or laundry bag to wash later.
Continued Need for Face Masks
While parts of the country begin to open, there is still a need to wear face masks. Face masks are essential for minimizing the transmission of germs and the COVID-19 virus. You are still required to wear face masks in some parts of the country, such as grocery stores, restaurants, bars, or in the case you have not yet been vaccinated. For people traveling by air, face masks will also be a requirement for the near future.
