Other Key Cleaning ToolsReusable Cloth Masks
Disposable surgical masks and respirators are in short supply for healthcare workers. If you don’t already have these, don’t buy them. You can make a cloth mask at home! Just make sure they:
1. Fit snugly but comfortably against the face
2. Have ties or ear loops to keep the mask on
3. Include multiple layers of fabric
4. Are breathable
5. Are machine washable and dryable without damage or change to shape
Make sure you wash these well and often after use. Save surgical masks for hospitals; they need it most.

Kitchen Gloves
Disposable gloves are also in short supply for healthcare workers. If you don’t already have them, buy reusable rubber or silicone gloves instead. They will work at keeping your hands clean as long as you clean them well after you use them.
