Face masks are one of many items that have become a part of our daily lives to protect ourselves from the virus, to prevent the spread of tiny droplets when we speak, breathe, or cough. Now, it's part of the "look."
However, how can we ensure that our face masks are free of dirt and bacteria, especially when we're outside? That's a little tricky, isn't it? Wearing face masks to protect yourself, but not knowing how effective they can be? We know the answer to that question.
Like clothes, face masks should be changed, washed (if they are made of cloth), and stored properly. There are tiny particles that we can't see, so we don't know what our face masks are exposed to.
Keep your face masks clean by following these simple steps when you’re outside:
- Hands must be washed or sanitized
Be sure to wash or sanitize your hands before touching anything, because our hands can be a breeding ground for bacteria that can spread throughout our bodies or to other people and surfaces we come into contact with, including the face masks that we wear directly over our mouth and nose.
- Use face mask lace or chains
There's no need to worry about where you'll put your face masks once you remove them before eating, drinking, or driving. Instead of leaving them anywhere when not in use, you can wear them around your neck with a face mask lace or chain. Their purpose goes far beyond mere decoration!
- Store your face masks when not in use
Some of you may take off your face masks when you're outside and leave them in your purse or bag, or worse, on a table at your favorite restaurant, not realizing that they're exposed to cross-contamination. The face mask case with a tight seal was created for this reason! They're worth the investment. And, you'll never forget where you put your face mask again!
- Face masks should be changed regularly
Is it okay to toss out a disposable face mask after each use? Your disposable face mask must be thrown away after each use because it filters our saliva, sweat, and the particles that come out of our mouths and noses.
Use the loops or ties to secure your face masks when you remove them instead of touching the inside.
Isn't it simple? As always, Wanderskye takes good care of you, as well as the things you use!
Do not forget to wash or replace your face masks regularly and to keep them clean. We'll know you're safe no matter what you do outside!
