With the right insert, this may be used as a physical barrier to protect you from droplets of body fluids.
For effective protection, please ensure that:
A melt-blown non-woven material* is used for the insert
The insert is frequently replaced (Every 2 to 3 hrs)
The fabric mask is washed on a daily basis
The right size is selected for best fit
Melt-blown non-woven material can be commonly found in:
Dried up wet tissue
Diapers, nappy liners and incontinence products
Non-woven microfibre fabric
General Product Care Instructions:
Fabric masks only offer some form of protection e.g. when you go for a quick errand run in a non-crowded place.
If you are unwell or going to a potential crowded place, please use an appropriate surgical mask.
To offer a higher degree of protection, each face mask is made of 100% cotton and a slot at the back where you can insert your own DIY, dispose-after-each-use filter e.g. folded kitchen towel or dried wet wipes.
Please only hand-wash the fabric mask with soap and water; and air-dry it before your first use and after each repeated use.
Do not machine wash or put it in a hot dryer as the fabric will wear down more quickly. Do not soak it with other clothings as colours will run for strong coloured fabrics.
The length of the elastic band is intentionally longer to allow the user to adjust to his/her needs.
If the elastic band becomes loose over time or after each repeated use, you can further tighten or replace it with another elastic band of your own.
