How do I properly wash fabric masks?

Wash in your regular laundry using hot water. Then tumble dry them in the dryer on a high setting.

We recommend putting masks in a lingerie bag if you have one which will help lessen the wear and tear of elastic.

 

If you don’t have a dryer, air drying works as well as long as the mask has been washed in a washing machine with hot water.
