How To Wash A Silk Face Mask Covering

Silk Face Coverings are now highly sought after due to their soft texture and antibacterial properties. While silk masks are perfect for wearing over long periods and prevent irritation against the skin, it is important to wash them properly so you can retain its silky texture and keep you safe.

How Ofter Should You Wash Your Face Mask?

It is recommended that you wash your face mask after each wear. This means that even if you remove your mask for only moment, you should not put the same mask on and instead use a clean one.

Once you take off your mask, you should wash it straight away. Alternatively, if you are not home, you should put your mask in a zip lock bag immediately after taking it off and keep it sealed until you are able to wash it.

Check with your local Department of Health for more information as recommendations regarding this may differ depending on the country you are from and the severity of COVID-19 in your area.

Wash Bag


Always wash your face mask inside a wash bag to protect it. If you don’t have a wash bag, a great alternative is putting it inside an old pillowcase.

Gentle Soap


Use a mild soap, silk detergent or gentle shampoo to wash. It’s important that you use a detergent or soap that doesn’t contain enzymes or bleach that will damage your silk. The Laundress Silk Delicate Laundry Wash is great for remove perspiration, body oils, and stains while cleaning and preserving fabrics.

Machine Wash


Put the washing machine on a warm delicate cycle. The cycle should not exceed a water temperature above 30 Celsius. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling your mask.

Hand Wash


If you are opting to wash your pillowcase by hand, submerge the mask in a tub of warm water, no hotter than 30C Celsius. Lather the mask with your gentle soap or detergent and gently scrub for at least 20 seconds. Rinse with hot water.

After Wash Care


After washing, hang your mask up to air dry. Once it is dry, you can then iron it to remove any creases. Ironing it will help to prolong the quality of the silk.
