Working Sterile

Hygenic Ways of Working


  • Follow the golden rule: wash your hands often & don't touch your face!

  • Wear one of your own masks while you sew, and gloves if you can

  • If you feel sick, stop work! Take care of yourself, and keep any made masks with you at home.

Pack With Care

  • Wash your masks in hot water with bleach (if available) and dry on high heat. You can also boil and air dry (in a clean location) if there is no washer/dryer available.

  • Use freshly washed hands or gloved hands to transfer clean dry masks directly from drying into an impermeable, sealable bag (e.g. a ziploc bag)

  • Include our shipping label to advise recipient that masks should be sterilized upon receipt
