Shockingly, you can snag a pack of 50 (yes, 50) for just $31. That breaks down to only 62 cents per mask.

The masks are made from 100 percent jersey cotton and feature three layers, so they comply with the CDC’s guidelines for face masks. They’re also made with secure elastic earloops, And the extra-special part? They contain an antimicrobial finish to kill germs and bacteria on contact for added protection.

Since they’re machine washable, you can re-use them again and again—the antimicrobial coating lasts up to 10 washes. More than 13,000 Amazon shoppers are smitten, and here’s what they have to say.

“Very good quality cotton mask. Comfortable too,” wrote an excited face mask fan. “It provides good coverage of the mouth and nose from just under the eyes to under the chin without concern it would slip as it’s somewhat form-fitting. Can breathe easily and if I blow out hard or cough, can barely feel anything outside the mask, so it’s effective at preventing you from spewing respiratory droplets into the air.”


“I like that they are machine washable and can also go in the dryer. I've washed one multiple times just to see how sturdy it was. It didn't shrink and held up well. I only left it in the dryer a few minutes and then mostly air dried as a precaution,” added a happy reviewer of the Hanes reusable cotton face mask.

Passed the ‘light test’

“They are made from 100 percent cotton, so they are very comfortable to wear. The size is good for an average adult face and the masks fit me nicely. I can breathe through them without too much effort,” shared a five-star shopper. “The masks also passed the light test that doctors recommended. If you hold up a cloth mask and light can go through all the layers easily, it’s not protective enough.”

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
