Any face mask is bound to get dirty after a period of usage. Totobobo Mask has been praised by many users that the mask is super easy to clean.
The mask can be clean and disinfect with soap and water, 70% alcohol, diluted bleach or the latest UV-C light.
The easiest of all, the mask and filters can be disinfected under UV-C exposure. UV-C devices are growing in popularity following the COVID-19 spread. Follow the instruction of your device for the duration. One of the concerns is UV light may damage the filter structure or the electrostatic charges. For that reason, we did a 5-hours, high-intensity UV exposure test. The test results show there is no detectable impact on the filtration efficient on all the filters tested (F94, F96 and Pro99)
Alcohol (70% diluted)
For daily cleaning, wipe the mask with 70% alcohol. Do not touch the filter when you clean the mask body.
When it is time to change filters, wash the whole mask with soap and water after removing the filters.
