Made of cotton, the Stöhr face mask is washable at 60°C and thus reusable! The mask can be worn over your mouth and nose and can be secured behind your ears using the elastic straps. The metal wire helps to keep the mask from slipping off your nose as quickly.
However, before wearing the mask for the first time, after using it or after it being saturated with moisture, the mask should be washed. For storage, you should use airtight containers (e.g. a bag) to prevent contamination. To kill the virus, wash your masks at 60°C and then heat them up in the oven at 80°C for 10 minutes!
It is generally recommended that you wash your hands with soap or disinfectant before and after removing the mask or touching it in any way. Even with a mask on, you should keep a distance of at least 1.5-2 metres from other people.
