Proper wear of your mask is important. Follow these instructions to correctly wear and care for 3M’s reusable cloth face masks.

Tips for Wearing a 3M™ Daily Face Mask

Follow these steps to put on, take off and wear your 3M daily face mask.

3M Daily Face Masks are suitable for everyday wear in public places, are hand washable and reusable for long-lasting value. Our non-medical cloth face masks have two layers of cotton fabric, adjustable ear loops and nose clip designed for comfort.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  • Practice good hygiene

    Wash your hands with warm, soapy water for 20 seconds before putting on and after removing your 3M daily face mask to avoid transferring any dirt or germs to the mask. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if you can't wash your hands.

  • Ensure mask is in good condition

    Take the mask by the ear loops and inspect before putting it on. If you see any holes, tears or other damage, throw it away and use a new one that’s in good condition.

  • Do not pinch the nose strip

    3M daily face masks have an adjustable nose clip. Rather than pinching the nose clip shut, use both hands to bend the nose clip so it rests snugly against your nose and face.

  • Full coverage is important

    Your mask should cover your nose and mouth at all times, even when you’re moving your mouth or head. The mask should rest comfortably and snugly against your face.

  • Once it’s on, keep it on

    Taking your face mask on and off creates an opportunity for germs to spread — to and from your body. While in public, don’t pull your mask down from the bridge of your nose or let it dangle from one ear. Masks are only as effective as the user, so keep it on for as long as you’re around others.

  • Clean your mask immediately and properly

    3M daily face masks should be washed after every use to help reduce the spread of germs. Hand wash these masks vigorously with warm water for at least 5 minutes. Rinse and air dry. Our convenient multipacks mean you’ll be set for several outings.
