We are not experts, or have definitive knowledge about the effectiveness of cloth masks. Listed below are guidelines and suggestions we have found doing non-expert research.
When putting on your face covering, use the ties to place it on your face and cover your face and mouth snugly, making sure you can breathe easily.
Face coverings should be snug, but still comfortable, and cover your whole nose and mouth, and extend underneath your chin, according to the CDC. You should be able to breathe normally, but the sides of the mask should fit close to your face.
Be extra careful not to touch the front of your mask and your eyes, nose and mouth when removing your face covering, and wash your hands after handling your mask, according to the CDC. Remove your mask by taking the straps from the back of your head and pulling it forward.
Wash your hands with soap and water before and after touching your mask.
As per Dr. Daniel Griffin, an infectious diseases expert at Columbia University, you should wash your mask as often as you do your underwear. (To that end, you may want to have multiple masks so you can still stay protected while it's in the wash.)
According to the CDC, machine-washing your mask is enough to disinfect your cloth face covering. Masks should be machine-washed frequently using hot water and regular detergent. Dry at a hot setting.
In truth, wearing a mask can be a little bit annoying. Glasses-wearers may struggle with masks steaming up lenses, and it can make breathing somewhat uncomfortable or stuffy. (Kids under age 2 and people who have trouble breathing shouldn't wear cloth face coverings, per the CDC.
