Since the beginning of 2020, one of the most debated subjects has been about the effectivity of mask, and whether they actually work.

While there’s still much more data to explore, we list here below a few recent studies that acknowledge the efficacy of mask-wearing, focusing particularly on washable cloth face masks.

Washable Reusable Face Masks FAQ

How to wash a reusable mask?

Fabric reusable face masks should be cleaned after each use. They can be washed in the washing machine or by hand. If the mask has a filter pocket, remember to empty it before washing the mask.

It is possible to use a regular detergent that can remove dirt and sweat from the surfaces of the mask. Both hot and cold water is fine for rinsing. Finally, the masks can be dried on a drying rack in direct sunlight.

When the mask is dry, it should be kept in a sanitized container until the next use.

Which is better, washable or disposable face masks?

Reusable masks are effective and recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization), US, but they must be made of at least 3 layers to protect properly. A filter pocket is also very important.

A good quality reusable face mask can be used several times, and therefore it is a better investment from an economic point of view.
Furthermore, washable masks are more environmentally friendly because are less likely to be dropped on the street.

Where to buy reusable masks in Amsterdam and in the Netherlands?

Washable masks are available in many stores and online shops. For example Etos, Bol, Ako, Hema, Bijenkorf, C&A, Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss, G-star and Zalando.
We recommend supporting small local manufacturers who, like Mondkatjes, make quality handmade face masks. Read the story: Top reasons why some people are anti-masks. Rant of a small masks shop's owner.

Why face masks?

The use of masks helps to limit the spread of the virus, as recognized by the WHO and the Dutch RIVM. Face masks must be used in addition to other protective measures to reduce infection, such as physical distance and constant and careful hand hygiene.

How much do reusable masks cost?

You can buy reusable masks for 5-10 euros, though pay attention to the quality.
Many cheap cloth face masks are made from poor quality fabrics; they do not protect well because they have only one or two layers; and they tend to become loose very quickly. That is why many people prefer to invest in a good quality reusable face mask, made of three or four layers of cotton 100%.

What reusable face masks are best?

A washable face mask has at least three layers of 100% cotton.
It shouldn't be too big or too small and it should fit snugly against your face. For this reason, it is better to choose a mask with adjustable ear loops and a nose clip.
It should also be easy to wash and disinfect.
