What to look for when buying a reusable mask in Australia

Before buying a reusable face mask, it's always a good idea to compare your options. Here are some key issues to consider:

Cost. With a fresh wave of COVID-19 currently sweeping parts of Australia, the demand for face masks has drastically increased. Compare prices to ensure that you aren't paying too much.

To help you out, we ran our own analysis on how much a standard reusable face mask costs and found the average price to be around $22.47. You'll also want to consider how much the shipping charge is, as some sellers may hike up their prices. On average, shipping a mask costs $10.92, so be aware of any stores charging significantly more than this. You'll often get free shipping with larger purchases.

Size. To be effective, your mask needs to properly fit your face without any gaps. Because of this, you may want to look for masks that are available in a range of sizes rather than a "one size fits all" option. You can also opt for a mask with adjustable ear straps, which can then be easily altered to fit your face.

Thickness. While any mask is better than no mask, opt for a triple-layered mask if you can. According to the Mayo Clinic, "masks should include multiple layers of fabric" to be as effective as possible.


Will a mask protect me from COVID-19?

While a face mask will not make you immune to COVID-19, it can stop particles that are released when you cough or sneeze from travelling too far in the air. According to ABC health reporter Olivia Willis, "COVID-19 is mostly spread via respiratory droplets" and "face masks can help to catch some of these fluid splashes".

Face masks also serve as a reminder to stop touching your face, which the World Health Organization (WHO) has said is important in preventing the transfer of the virus from surfaces to your nose, eyes or mouth.

It is important to remember that masks will not stop you from contracting the virus. You should continue to adhere to recommendations on personal hygiene and social distancing when wearing one.


How do you wash a reusable face mask?

To find out how best to wash your face mask, it is a good idea to check the product description on the site that you bought it from.

If this information is not available, the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria recommends the following steps to clean your mask:

  • Handwash your mask with soap in the warmest appropriate water setting.
  • Lay the mask out to air dry and let it dry completely before reusing.
  • Wash your hands before and after handling your mask.
  • Wash your mask after each wear.

How to safely wear and remove a mask

For your mask to be as protective as possible, it is important that it is worn properly. According to the WHO, this means that the mask should cover your nose and mouth and have no gaps around the sides of your face. You should also wash or sanitise your hands before and after touching your mask.

When wearing your mask, you should avoid touching it or taking it off to speak to others. Once you remove your mask, it is advised that you place it in a zip lock bag until you are able to wash it, which you should do after each wear.
