I’ve just been through the only other sous vide for face masks thread, read everything, watched all the videos, etc., but that information only seems to deal only with N95 masks. But most of us who are not healthcare workers are wearing cotton masks (or some other fabric material).
My partner and I go out infrequently, and I’m trying to come up with a good way to sanitize our masks as soon as we walk in the door so we can get in the habit of doing it. I figure, with SV, we could start the water bath before we leave, then it would be ready when we return. I’ve looked at the rice cooker and instant pot approaches and want to compare those with sous vide.
Can anyone who really knows about this topic post temperature/time and method for SVing a fabric face mask? If sealed inside a ziplock bag with as much air pressed out as possible, would SV work? Or should they go directly into the water, then be hung up to dry? Should the disposable filter that so many masks come with now be removed, or could it be sanitized as well along with the mask?
