How often do you wash your reusable face mask? Every day, once a week, every now and again? Although reusable masks are a lot better for the environment, if they aren’t washed regularly enough, new information has found they could be bad for your health. So, how often should you wash your reusable face mask?
A study by YouGov has found that just 13% of reusable face mask wearers aren’t washing their masks frequently enough. This is because your reusable face mask should be washed after every use. Yes, that seems a lot! But for your own safety and to stop cross-contamination every time you wear a mask it should be put in the wash.
