Mask Cleaning Tips (and tricks) - Shop Home Basics

Did you know that you can include your masks with your regular laundry?


What the CDC says: 

Masks should be washed after each use. It is important to always remove masks correctly and wash your hands after handling or touching a used mask.


Machine Washing instructions:

  • Place your mask in a Sunbeam intimate bag
  • Use regular laundry detergent
  • Use the warmest recommended water setting for the fabric used to make the mask (the hotter temperature helps sanitize)
  • Use deepest cleaning setting
  • Dry as instructed on mask


Was your mask home-made? 

Hand-sewn masks can be extra delicate, let's wash those by hand.

  • In a Home Basics Bucket, or a sink dilute liquid detergent in hot water, submerging the mask in the solution and agitating it for 30 to 60 seconds to lift dirt and body soils.
  • Allow it to soak for 20 minutes.
  • rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.

Pro-tip: When hand-washing masks, be careful not to overuse detergent & rinse very well, so there’s no residue that could cause skin irritation.
