South Africans are now mask-free after health minister Joe Phaahla repealed the last three remaining Covid regulations on the 23rd of June 2022.

So what are we supposed to do with all the cloth masks we collected over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic?

Before you think of tossing your unwanted cloth masks into the trash, there's a way in which you can re-use it.
