Bamboo masks often contain 95% bamboo fabric. Experts suggest the material could make the mask more comfortable and breathable than a typical cotton mask, although no studies have been performed to determine the effectiveness of bamboo in protecting the wearer from COVID-19.
Are bamboo face masks better than cotton?
Bamboo masks may offer a more breathable and comfortable alternative to some heavy cotton face masks. This may be especially useful for those who struggle to breathe easily. The bamboo variety can therefore be a more comfortable option when temperatures are high. As long as the bamboo mask is double-layered, tightly knit and a good fit, protection should be comparable to a cotton mask.
What are the benefits of a bamboo face mask?
As we’ve already mentioned, the key benefit of bamboo face masks is that they allow the wearer to breathe easier than when using a cotton mask. They are also reusable, which means they’re better for the environment than disposable face masks.
How do you wash a bamboo face mask?
Wash by hand with a gentle detergent and allow to dry naturally. Or, machine wash on a gentle cycle (up to 40 degrees) and hang dry.
