Important note: A spokesperson for the CDC tells Finder most people should wear cloth face masks "in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household" — especially when social distancing isn't possible.

Finder vets each mask retailer as a legitimate reseller prior to listing by confirming business and item documentation. We also request a physical sample to compare against what is advertised. We do not test any mask for its filtration capabilities, and none of the masks listed here are NIOSH-certified to our knowledge. Read the CDC's page on counterfeit respirators to learn more about NIOSH certification

The World Health Organization (WHO), along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), advises the public to wear cloth face masks where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

While not as effective as an N95 or KN95 mask, cloth masks are easy to make yourself or find at bridal and fashion retailers. Shop washable makeshift masks from the sites below.

Can’t find face masks? Where else to shop

Face masks may be temporarily out of stock at many retailers due to increased demand. But a number of higher-end retailers are now offering designer cloth face masks — including Citizens of Humanity and wedding-gown designer Katie May. Many online stores are also selling bulk disposable masks.

Some boutiques like these have added new cloth mask options to their inventory. A few are even donating a portion of the profits to charity.

American Blanket Company

This bedding brand is now offering American-made face masks that look as cozy as you’d expect from a blanket company. American Blanket Company is donating face masks to healthcare workers and first responders with every purchase made. You can buy a five-pack for under $30. Note that shipping times are currently between 15 and 30 business days, due to heavy order volume.

Custom Ink

Custom Ink specializes in personalized t-shirts, but has expanded its inventory to now include jersey cloth face masks. These items are made in the USA and are available in packs of 12 or 120.

Buck Mason

This American-made clothing brand now has antimicrobial, non-medical cloth face masks available for preorder on its website. For every mask sold, the company is donating a mask to someone in need. So far, Buck Mason is set to donate over 225,000 masks.

Arm the Animals

Get an American-made cloth mask that sports your favorite animal and helps to join in the fight against the spread of coronavirus. For every mask sold, Arm the Animals donates a mask to California hospitals, medical facilities and emergency workers.

Sanctuary

This online clothing boutique is now selling a five-pack of fashion-forward cloth masks for $28. A portion of the profits go towards donating masks to those in need.

Will a cloth mask protect me?

While a cloth mask won’t guarantee the same level of effectiveness as an N95 or KN95 mask with a valve, the cloth is there to prevent moisture from breathing and coughing from traveling too far in the air. According to KK Cheng, a public health expert at the University of Birmingham, “It’s not to protect yourself. It’s to protect people against the droplets coming out of your respiratory tract.”

Wearing a cloth mask can at least help you from spreading the virus to others. As you look for masks online, be wary of scams. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to equipment shortages, especially N95 masks. Some unscrupulous sellers are selling fakes to try to profit from the situation. 3M, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of masks, offers a tool to check if a product is genuine.

You can find cloth masks at several retailers listed above.

Are cloth face masks washable?

Yes — most, if not all are machine washable or can be washed by hand. Check the washing instructions for the cloth face mask you’re interested in.

How often should I wash my mask?

Cloth face masks should be washed daily, according to the CDC. Here are some tips for washing your mask:

  • Use hot water and a mild laundry detergent.
  • Dry your mask completely in a hot dryer.
  • Store in a clean container or bag.

How to remove your mask properly

First, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before putting on your mask. When you’re ready to take it off, do not touch the front of the mask — it could be contaminated. Instead, remove it by pulling the bottom strap over the back of your head, followed by the top strap. Discard the mask, and then wash your hands.

How much do cloth face masks cost?

You’ll find options ranging anywhere from $5 to upwards of $20. Typically, options with stylish embellishments or from designer brands tend to be more expensive than plainer options.

What’s the difference between P2, N95 and KN95 face masks?

The difference lies in the testing requirements for each country of origin. P2 masks adhere to European testing requirements, KN95 to Chinese requirements and N95 masks follow US guidelines. All offer nearly the same level of protection, according to a study by respirator company 3M.
