Why You Shouldn’t Wash Your Reusable Masks Beyond 30 Times

On Sept 1, the fourth nationwide reusable mask distribution exercise was launched to help keep the Covid-19 spread under control.

A Temasek Foundation initiative, the masks can be collected from StayMasked vending machines at about 800 locations by scanning the barcodes of an NRIC, a school smartcard, birth certificate, FIN or any government-issued identification with a barcode. People can find out information on the closest vending machines to them at this website. The collection over two weeks will last until Oct 4. Although a useful and sustainable alternative to single-use disposable masks, reusable masks should be washed regularly and replaced after a recommended period of time. Here are some things to note about reusable masks. Photos Showbit This article was first published in The Straits Times.
