Wear & Care:
Trying on your mask for the first time
*Wash and dry your hands before putting on and removing the mask
- Those black things in your ziplock are your single use woven filters, don't pull them out and get them dirty!
- Remove your mask and tie your bands loosely on each side.
- Try on your mask, it should fit snug! Tighten as needed.
- Feels stiff? After you get the bands how you need it for size hold both sides, hold both sides of your mask by the elastic and pull outward a few times.(like you play the accordian). These masks are fresh from a sewing machine and made from various cotton fabrics that act differently. This helps relax the tightly wove fibers and pleating to do what it needs especially where the elastic is threaded into the sides.
- Try on your mask again and distribute the top and the bottom to open and cover your nose/chin.
- Lastly: Lay your mask flat with the exterior facing down, open the double layered pocket lining until you see the exterior fabric, place your non-woven filter flat inside. When you have done so, that filter will be placed between the exterior and the double layer lining pocket
Caring for your mask
- Wash fabric masks daily, hang dry! You can iron your mask but not the elastic
- Do not contaminate the interior of the mask by pulling it down to rest on your chin.
- DO NOT WASH your single use filters!
- DO NOT IRON your single use filters!
- Replace non-woven filter with a fresh one-- do not reuse!
- Any type of masks (N95, surgical, fabric) shouldn't be worn too long. When it gets damp, you should replace it. So, if you're sweating a lot, prepare replacement masks/back up masks.
- Do not wear masks if you have respiratory illnesses
- These masks are designed to reserve surgical masks for medical professionals who are on the front liners of healthcare
- Washing your hands is more important than wearing a mask. Yes.
