After all the hype you’ve heard about the free reusable mask that the government is giving, you give the mask the first wash and this came out.
This was what happened to several users who took to Facebook to share their experience.
So what happened? Is it because of defective masks?
According to an Ultramask care video, this is the appropriate way to wash your reusable mask.
- Rinse the front and back of the mask with room temperature water.
- Add a drop of soap and rub gently
- Carefully wash away the soap
- For kids mask, they can be washed with nose strip attached
- Then just hang your masks to dry
The video also highlighted a couple of things that cannot be done to the mask:
- No wringing of the mask
- You cannot use bleach, softener or detergent with a fluorescent agent to wash the mask
- No ironing
In short, you can only handwash your mask instead of throwing it into the washing machine to wash together with your other clothes.
But What If I Did It Already?
Maybe you’re reading this article with your brown-stained mask at the side.
What should you do? Throw it away?
Don’t throw it away.
According to the People’s Association (PA) via mothership.sg, people wit stained masks after wash can make their way to the community club for a 1-to-1 exchange during this week.
109 CCs have mask collection counters open from 10am to 6pm this week (until 1 June).
Bring along your identification card for the exchange.
