The coronavirus pandemic has taught us a lot about our safety and protection. Wearing a face mask in public is one of the strict rules for the same. If you don’t wear a mask in public and crowded places, then the chances are that they will get affected by this virus or any other diseases that are either airborne or waterborne.
Nowadays, the market is flooding with varieties of handmade face masks. However, many people still don’t know about the appropriate ways to wear a face mask. Even if you have the most expensive and well-designed face mask, and you don’t wear it properly, you failed to protect yourself in the first place. That is why some specific do’s and don’ts need to be carefully considered when wearing face masks in public or social places.
Do’s And Don’ts Of Wearing A Face Mask
Wearing a mask in the right way will keep you away from getting infected by the coronavirus and will become your shield against it.
Go ahead and check out the do’s and don’ts.
Make sure to cover both your nose and mouth
Both the nose and mouth should be covered properly when you wear a mask. Otherwise, there is no point in wearing it. A 4-layered handmade face mask from Anek will be much more durable than any other facemasks available in the market. This will give you the best protection at the cheapest rates possible. For example, this brick-color Jute handmade face mask offers 4-layer protection and a carbon filter layer as an added protection.
Wash your cloth face masks in hot water
Reusable handmade cloth facemasks should be washed in soap/detergent using hot water (minimum 60 degrees celsius) every single day. Alternately, you can first wash your mask and leave it in boiling water for a minute to ensure all germs, bacteria, and viruses are killed.
Clean your hands before touching your face mask
Sanitize or wash your hands before touching a clean mask you are about to wear. Wearing a clean mask with dirty hands would transmit any germs from your hands onto the mask.
Try Making Your DIY Masks
For convenience and comfort, you can also opt for DIY face masks online and then try them according to your nose and mouth size. This will give you much more specificity in your mask-making. Also, you will not avoid wearing a mask because of any inconvenience that it is causing you. If handmade facemasks are something you love, then you’ll be glad to know that all of Anek’s facemasks are handmade by the most talented Indian artisans.
Wear a cloth face mask
The disposal face masks are very easy to handle but may sometimes suffocate you to a great extent. That is why using cloth face masks will undoubtedly be very helpful for you in the case of protection as well as comfort. Anek offers pure cotton masks that are soft on the skin, highly breathable, and easily washable.
Avoid the Contact of your neck and the mask
Do not let your neck and your face mask get in contact with each other. If this happens, then the germs present on your neck will get attached to your mask and will eventually enter your nose and mouth. This will give you exposure to germs and will make you prone to a lot of diseases. So, try and skip this as much as possible.
Don’t let your mask get wet at all
If your mask gets wet, then you will get exposed to all the harmful chemical ingredients that are used in making that mask. Therefore, make sure that you remain away from wet places when you wear your mask in public places.
Never pull down the mask while talking
While talking with others, you might be tempted to pull down the mask to your chin. Doing this means you are not taking the preventive measure properly. Just one incident like this could transfer germs or viruses from one person to another.
Do not share your mask with others
Don’t share your own mask with others when you have already worn it once. Ensure your used mask is kept away from the reach of anyone and wash it as soon as possible.
When you learn to wear a mask most appropriately, you can get a great amount of protection for yourself. This will become the external shield that will not relate you to the infectious virus world and will instead keep you away from it.
Also, using handicraft items in the case of face masks will save a lot of your money and will be much more durable for you.
