Where to buy washable, reusable face masks in New Zealand

Find out where you can purchase a mask to be ready in case of another coronavirus outbreak.

Updated . What changed?

Fact checked

Retailers are offering delivery and click and collect services but some orders are taking longer than usual with the increased demand for online shopping. You may experience delays with orders coming from overseas retailers as there are limited flights coming into New Zealand.

Since disposable masks should only be used once, purchasing a reusable mask that can be washed each day may work out to be more cost-effective.

Will a mask protect me from COVID-19?

While a face mask will not make you immune to COVID-19, it can stop particles that are released when you cough or sneeze from travelling too far in the air. According to ABC health reporter Olivia Willis, “COVID-19 is mostly spread via respiratory droplets” and “face masks can help to catch some of these fluid splashes”.

Face masks also serve as a reminder to stop touching your face, which the World Health Organization has said is important in preventing the transfer of the virus from surfaces to your nose, eyes or mouth.

It is important to remember that masks will not stop you from contracting the virus and that you should continue to adhere to recommendations on personal hygiene and social distancing when wearing one.


How do you wash a reusable face mask?

To find out how best to wash your face mask, it is a good idea to check the product description on the site that you bought it from.

If this information is not available, the Ministry of Health recommends the following steps to clean your mask:

  • Wash the mask in the washing machine at 60 degrees Celcius with washing powder or liquid.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Dry your hands before touching the mask.
  • Make sure your mask is completely dry before using it again.

How to safely wear and remove a mask

For your mask to be as protective as possible, it is important that it is worn properly. According to the World Health Organization, this means that the mask should cover your nose and mouth and have no gaps around the sides of your face. You should also wash or sanitise your hands before and after touching your mask.

When wearing your mask, you should avoid touching it or taking it off to speak to others. Once you remove your mask, it is advised that you place it in a zip lock bag until you are able to wash it, which you should do after each wear.
