Please wash your new cloth face masks

Seriously. I was thinking about this the other day when a friend gave me a cloth face mask she made and again today when my wife bought me a couple of new cloth face masks.
Whenever I buy new clothes, I always wash them before wearing them. I especially became aware of the wisdom of doing this in the late 1980's when I worked in men's clothing at a Macy's. One of the other workers told me that new clothes have formaldehyde and other chemicals in them to keep bugs out during shipping.
So if you have a face mask made from new cloth and you put it on and breathe through it... yeah. Gross to think about, right? So, please, wash them first at least once and maybe even hang them out in the air to dry before wearing them.
