As we become more confident with the idea of not leaving the house without a face mask, consider the myriad re-usable styles from some of our local fashion designers.

Although many aren't medical grade, they are sufficient enough for general use to keep yourself and others safe.

It's a good idea to have at least two face masks — this way you'll have a fresh mask if one is in the wash, and they should be washed after every wear.

Because this piece of fabric is touching your face, think about using non-scented laundry detergent if you're sensitive to perfumes, and focus on washing detergents kinder to your mask and skin.
