30x Washable




MaskSafe DET30™ Masks are reusable, antimicrobial, and washable up to 30 times. Wear one while you wash one.

The antibacterial performance is ≥ 99% before washing and decreases to ≥ 90% after 30 washes.

After 30 washes, the reusable masks can continue to be used like ordinary masks even though the antiviral and antibacterial performance will be gradually reduced with each additional wash. For more protection, you may wish to add another layer of surgical mask or filter.

The masks are effective against 94% of the Influenza A virus, which is an enveloped virus like the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Collection Questions
Will there be another round of distribution after the initiative ends?

There are plans for future rounds of distributions under Stay Prepared, so do keep a lookout for updates!
Product Questions
Who manufactured the masks, and what are they made of?
The MaskSafe DET30™ masks for adults and kids are produced by DETERMINANT, a retail brand of Hong Kong-based textile manufacturing company Esquel Group.

The masks have three layers of protection: the outermost layer is water repellent and antimicrobial; the middle layer performs particle filtration, while the innermost layer is made of light woven cotton fabric for comfort.
Are the masks safe? What’s the efficiency level of the mask?
All masks distributed under Stay Prepared’s StayMasked initiative have been tested by multiple laboratories to pass required safety standards. The MaskSafe DET30™ masks for adults and kids have been tested against various bacteria and viruses, with 94% effectiveness against Influenza A virus, an enveloped virus like the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
How long can I use the mask for?
Each MaskSafe DET30™ mask can be washed up to 30 times. Each mask kit contains two masks and on the basis of a “wear one, wash one” principle, should last for 2 months of daily use.

After 30 washes, you can continue using them like ordinary cotton masks. However, their antibacterial performance and bacterial filtration efficiency are reduced to ≥ 90% and ≥ 80% respectively. This may decrease with more washes. So please remember to clean your hands before and after touching your mask.

Do ensure that the mask is washed according to the guidelines provided in the mask kit after every use. Washing and drying is very simple but needs to be done correctly so the mask remains effective for a longer period of time.

When you do dispose of your DET30 mask, please do so thoughtfully. Applying the principles of circular use, you can repurpose it as a cleaning cloth or for some other suitable use, and then dispose of it in the rubbish properly. Please do not contribute to our waste by littering.
Are there sizes to the masks? Are there child-sized masks?
The free Kids White masks fit children between 3 and 12 years of age. As children aged 2 to 6 may not have the coordination to use masks properly, their parents and caregivers can decide if face shields or masks provide a better fit.

Adult: 17.5 cm (width) by 9.5 cm (height) for those more than 12 years of age
Kids: 15 cm by 8 cm for children aged 3 to 12, or adults who prefer smaller masks
My child is below 2 years of age. Can he / she wear the mask?
Face masks of all types are not recommended for babies, children with special needs and for young children below 2 years of age, for child safety reasons.

Children ought to stay at home and if they need to travel out, maintain a safe distance (>1m) from people whom they do not live with. Parents should also ensure children practise hand hygiene, by washing their hands with soap and water frequently or using hand sanitisers.
The stickers provided in the kids mask kit are a nice touch. Are they available for pre-order and can we select our preferred designs?
You won’t be able to select your preferred designs, but children can have some fun swapping stickers among their friends.
