My Face Mask Stinks: What’s the Best Way to Keep My Face Mask Fresh?
Mask-wearing policies are still in place and for those in the health field, face masks are “part of the uniform.” No matter what line of work you’re in, you likely notice that sometimes your face masks stinks. At the very least, it does not smell fresh, even with daily washing.

How Should I Sanitize My Face Mask?
You can wash your mask daily with water and laundry detergent or mild soap. If you plan to use bleach, use a solution of 4 tablespoons of bleach to each quart of water. However, the smell left behind by bleach is very unpleasant and can cause irritation to the facial skin and to the throat. We recommend spraying our Mask Sanitizer + Refresher on any masks washed in bleach.
How Can I Make My Mask More Comfortable?
- If your ears hurt from wearing a face mask, consider buying one that ties in the back rather than one that fastens to your ears with elastic loops.
- Alleviate ear pains by sewing buttons to the end of a headband or cap and fasten the elastic ear loops to those buttons instead of to your ears.
- Aromatherapy and essential oils can help decrease anxiety and help make breathing easier. Essential oils, however, need to be properly diluted. Mask Sanitizer + Refresher spray by NeverWet has done this for you and made the application easy.
- Consider using anti-fog sprays on eyeglass lenses prior to donning your mask to help stop your eyeglasses from fogging when you exhale.
