Can I clean my mask with alcohol?

A very frequent question among mask users is, Should I clean it with alcohol? The answer is no, single-use surgical masks are not recommended to be cleaned for later reuse. If you use any liquid to clean it, you will most likely degrade the materials.

Lately many hoaxes have been spread about masks, but we must be careful what we hear or read because it may not all be true.

One of these has been the recommendation to clean your mask before and after its uses to disinfect them and "be safer." The truth is that this would be counterproductive for the use of it since doing this would remove its properties.

Its main function of the is to act as a shield before aerosols and other possible pollutants, that is why these are designed to stop any type of microbe that could affect its wearer.

This is able to do it thanks to its nanotechnology, those that are homologated are not simply a piece of cloth with filters, these filters are designed to attract microbes and be effective against the spread of diseases.


What happens when we use alcohol or disinfectant gel is that we probably disinfect it and kill the microorganisms that we might find in it, but by doing that we also end its filtering capacity.

That is why from Mascarillas Béjar, we recommend the appropriate use of them, avoid using gels and alcohol to clean your disposable masks, that is why they are called like that, they should only be used and as manufacturers it is what they recommend.
