Repeated wear of cloth masks can cause unpleasant odors, discoloration and deterioration of the fabric. Antimicrobial masks aim to solve that issue, in addition to self-sanitizing — basically, the face mask includes materials that help keep it clean as it helps keep you clean. These masks are designed to be odor-resistant and to help prevent the growth of bacteria on the surface of the fabric.
When you cough or sneeze into an antimicrobial mask, positively charged ions in the fabric will inhibit and eliminate bacteria on the surface of the mask, said Keane. Antimicrobial masks also help to eliminate odor from use.
Particularly popular among antimicrobial masks are copper masks which helps kill bacteria and viruses that come in contact with it. A recent study from the New England Journal of Medicine found that the COVID-19 virus died within hours when placed on a copper surface.
Please keep in mind that in order to ensure your mask is functioning at its best it needs to be properly and regularly cleaned.
