Here's How To Sanitize Your Mask In Your Instant Pot!


Let's face it: masks are a way of life. NONE of us clean and sanitize them as much as we should. Here's a life-hack that should help out. You can actually use your Instant Pot to clean that nasty mask you've been wearing for WAY too many days and it even works on disposable N-95 masks!

To start, you'll put the water in the Instant Pot, then place the rack inside. With your gloves on, you'll want to put your N95 mask inside of the paper bag. You can nest up to three masks for sanitization at a time. Once the masks are secured in the bag, you should dispose of your gloves properly and close the paper bag with a stapler or paper clip. Then, you'll put the paper bag in the Instant Pot, making sure the rack is tall enough so the bag and mask doesn't touch the water and get wet.

You'll want to use the sous vide function on the Instant Pot, which doesn't use pressure. Once this function is selected, set the temperature to 149 degrees Fahrenheit on a 30-minute timer. After the time is up, it will take about one hour for the masks to dry and then they'll be ready for use again.
