Can a Disposable Mask be sprayed with medical alcohol for disinfection and reuse after it is used up? Regarding the problem of masks, ordinary residents use disposable masks in places with relatively low risks. They can be reused when the masks are clean and structurally complete, especially the inner layer is not contaminated. They should be placed in the room after each use. A relatively clean, dry and ventilated place. In addition, spraying disinfectants, including medical alcohol, will reduce the protection efficiency, so it is not appropriate to use alcohol spraying to disinfect masks.
Speaking of the repeated use of masks, I want to specifically emphasize that it should be divided into specific situations. If you are alone, such as not in contact with outsiders at home, you may not wear a mask, including in a private car, or alone outdoors or in a community You don’t need to wear a mask when you walk around and walk in a park with few pedestrians. However, patients who enter and exit crowded public places, take transportation, including shopping malls, take elevators, including conference rooms, and go to ordinary medical institutions, can wear ordinary medical masks, which are what we call Disposable Medical Masks.
In this case, put the mask in a clean, dry and ventilated place after going home, and you can reuse it. For workers in dense places, including industry personnel related to the epidemic, administrative personnel, police, security, and courier personnel, it is recommended to wear medical surgical masks. The use time and replacement frequency of Medical Masks can be appropriately extended according to the actual situation. In other words, if the mask is not obviously dirty or deformed, it does not need to be replaced every four hours, but if it is dirty, deformed, damaged, or smells, it needs to be replaced in time.
