Where To Order & Buy Reusable Fabric Face Masks

Now that wearing face masks is considered absolutely necessary when we go out into public, to work and do our essential shopping, it’s time to stock up! You can make your own at home, but if you wish to get professionally made fabric masks delivered right to your door, here’s where you can get them.

Why You Should Rather Buy Cloth Face Masks

We see a lot of people wearing those blue, surgical masks when they go out in public. But, if you think about it, restocking on these and using them daily are neither affordable nor eco-friendly. Here’s why we suggest you order fabric masks for you and your loved ones to fight the spread of COVID-19:

  • Fabric face masks are reusable. After you’ve worn them, simply pop them in the washing machine for a clean then hang them in the sun to dry (this will also assist in killing germs).
  • Fabric face masks are affordable. Instead of spending a fortune on the single-use medical masks, stock up on a few fabric masks that you’ll reuse repeatedly. No single-use face masks for us!
  • Fabric face masks are eco-friendly. Instead of throwing away single-use face masks every single time you return home from braving going into public, use and reuse the fabric face masks. This will have a better impact on the environment as well as lower the amount of litter we create.
  • Fabric face masks can be customised. When it comes to face masks, it’s not a one-size-fits-all scenario. Plus, considering this is going to be an essential accessory when we go out into public for the next few months, we would like them to look amazing and match our style. These new accessories can be completely perosnalised, just ensure they are worn and used correctly. Here’s the NICD’s guidelines on fabric face masks.

Here are a few places where you can order your own fabric face masks online and have them delivered right to your door.
