. Here's alink[cdc.gov] to the official US CDC writeup on reuse of masks. This page includes relaxed rules due to critical mask supply shortages. All major disinfecting procedures are tested and rated. Please read before making health-related decisions based on the hodgepodge of conflicting info in this thread. Note that metal nose pieces and microwaves don't mix.
BE WARNED: many who placed orders back on 4/5 from first deal thread have not received their product. No answers to email, no one picks up the phone. You can enter a callback queue but no one calls back. They made a shipping label, but the product is not being shipped. Merchant blames USPS. If you are outside your delivery window period, you can file a dispute/claim whomever manages your original payment method.
This is a crap deal @ ~$4.60 each with shipping.
**EDIT** SOLD OUT only kid sizes available Bombay Electronics has a 10 pack for $38, so 3.80 each with free shipping (it says free on $50, but it ships free with just one 10 pack, see for yourself.
CDC recommends [link needed or it's not true] sterilizing N95 masks for coronavirus using the steam bags that are sold to sterilize baby bottles, etc. Target sells the Medela quick clean micro steam bags. The bags can be used 20x and likewise in testing the CDC found that most N95 masks survived 20x sterilizations before their protection was compromised and the mask needed to be thrown out. DO NOT USE DRY HEAT [not true either, see here https://news.stonybrook.edu/sb_medicine/dry-heat-ovens-can-effectively-disinfect-n95-masks/] or CHEMICALS (Lysol, etc) to sterilize N95s, it will compromise their effectiveness or flat out not kill the coronavirus that may be on the outside of them after use.
