Washable Face Mask ? Yes!

The biggest question we receive about the cloth face masks we carry is "Is This A Washable Face Mask ?"

Well, I couldn't have a more simple answer for everyone .  Yes, these are washable face masks .  And therefore, reusable.

It's really that simple.  Our Defendair cloth face masks from Airbandit reusable.  They are made from charcoal bamboo cloth which provides antimicrobial properties and are safe to wash and reuse.  

In fact we highly recommend this.  Cloth face masks are in high demand and a really important resource.  Under no circumstance are our masks considered one time use garments  but I want to make it clear that they are made to be reused.

We all hear a lot of news stories about health care workers being forced to reuse their PPE and more specifically, their face masks.  Those masks are considered one time use masks and of course, that is how it should be.

I just don't want customers to think that's what they are buying from the Social Distance Mask Company.  We do not sell the masks so desperately needed by front line workers.  Although we selling masks with a filter pouch which is fitted to 3m™ 5N11 NIOSH-Approved N95 Filters.

It's really important to note that we do not sell face mask with filters included. Only the filter pocket.  If you can source your own 3m™ 5N11 NIOSH-Approved N95 Filters.  

Washing Your Face Mask

We recommend washing your new face mask before your first use and after wearing it outside of your quarantine area.

The instructions are simple.

Hand wash with soap and water, hang or machine dry.


We are hearing more and more that their will be requirements that citizens in large cities such as New York and Los Angeles will be required to wear face masks for some time.  Having a quality washable face mask that provides antimicrobial protection will save a lot of money.
