Better than just reusing without doing anything. You can do this with any cloth that doesn't have metal, if you have some reason to. If for some reason you don't have time to wash it.
What kind of precautions are you taking besides just washing your hands to help prevent Corona virus from infecting you? Today I rolled our shoes over and sprayed the bottoms of them with a bleach solution.
Any suggestions to keep the virus out of our houses?
As long as you take this for feel-good and nothing further. Self preservation ain't exactly my forte...
Tomorrow will be my 40th day of quarantine, a term I use loosely because I am an essential employee and also, apparently, live a life of quarantine as I find almost no measured difference in routine. That, of course (IMO) is the biggest step. It can't get in ya if you ain't there. That includes The Others. Don't be where they are, don't let them where you are.
Nearly anything that goes Out There goes through some sort of process upon returning. If it's non-essential, it sits outside. Packages, some groceries, there's very little you need, and even less that you need right now. I won't quote numbers I heard for Covid, but other variants of corona lasts up to 9 days, and I'm at that level of effort these days, like many here. So f#$% it. You can store the Cap'n Crunch next to the PB Blaster for a week because that's not gonna kill ya.
Has-to-go-in stuff gets ye olde wipe down. Milk jugs. Bread bags. Rub the brand name clean off. If the box is cardboard and can't, then it's not needed. I use straight alcohol.
Grocery is order and pick up. No going inside. No going in anywhere, unless you can be damn sure it's gonna be you and the shopkeep, and even then only if needed. Not "American" needed, not effing Maslow's needed, but food-water-shelter needed.
Get grimey when Out There. You sneeze, you cry, got eye boogers, crusty lip, you leave that s#$% there. That is Sink Work, no exceptions. And for the love of f#$%, keep alcohol on you at all times. It's midge and no-see-um season, and you're gonna take one to the eyeball. You're gonna need to get clean before you go digging for it.
Clothes gone Out There stay Out There. Strip in the garage, directly to the shower without touching a thing. If this is too much work, you're going out too gd much.
Consume nothing Out There. Not mints, not gum, not vegan Whoppers, no thing. You're not gonna desiccate in a day let alone 3 hours, leave the water at home. Fat bong rips in the man cave, sure. Cigs? Out of doors? Yer bleedin' mental.
Stop. Touching. Your face. Christ's sake. Mustache tickles? Shave it off. Bit your nails for 38yrs? Too gd bad. Shut it down!
The caveat, of course, is f#$% knows if any of this is actually working. Could just be luck of the draw that's kept me good for 40 days and nights. But I'm in the s#$%. Literally surrounded. Coworkers on quarantine, coworkers families on quarantine, indirectly contact about 1,700 Others a day and directly contact just a touch under 100. And I Ain't Dead Yet, #*%$#@!! If Red Devil means anything to you, you can understand the level of neurosis. But 40days later, we're ALL still breathing...
Not sure if you could or should microwave one of those n-95 masks. Never looked at one.
If you google it, some university did a study and you can safely sterilize an N95 mask in a 160F oven for 30 mins
I have to suggest at least 165°, because that is the minimum temperature to kill bacteria in meat.
