aiRmask cleaning

Make the most of your aiRmasks with our cleaning instructions.

To provide adequate protection to you as a reusable cloth face mask, aiRmask has a protective water-resistant layer to repel water.

It is important to note that the nanotech on your aiRmask can be worn off after repeated washing.
Naturally, you want your aiRmask to last for a long time so you can enjoy them for an extended period of time, not to mention get your money’s worth. To do so, however, you have to care for them properly. That means learning how to wash by hand. Check out the following steps for the basics of handwashing aiRmasks, as well as some tips on drying aiRmasks by hand.

Step 1: Hand-wash your aiRmasks

Fill up a plugged sink or a small basin with water. You’ll add about a measuring teaspoon of detergent to this. Place your aiRmasks in the soapy water and gently swirl them around with your hands for about two minutes.

Keep in mind that while handwashing aiRmasks, it’s important not to scrub, twist or bunch them. You could possibly damage the fabric and prematurely wear off the nanotech.

Step 2: Rinse and repeat

Fill a second bucket or sink with clean water, or drain the first container and refill it with fresh water. This should be the same temperature as the water you used to hand-wash the aiRmasks.

Dip aiRmasks in and out of this water until the soap has been rinsed away completely. You may need to repeat this a few times to make sure all of the detergent has been washed out of your aiRmasks.

Step 3: Prepare for drying aiRmasks by hand

Remove your aiRmasks from the basin or sink and gently squeeze the water out of the aiRmasks.

Make sure you’re not twisting or wringing the aiRmasks, as this can tear or damage the nanotech on the aiRmasks.

Step 4: Dry your aiRmasks

You can drape your aiRmasks over a drying rack. Please do not dry under direct sunlight as this would cause faster deterioration of the nanotech layer.

If you don’t have a drying rack, you can DIY one by hanging your aiRmasks over a shower curtain rod.
