100% Cotton, 2-ply face mask with pocket for a filter. I prefer to use a blue shop towel as a filter, but facial tissues can be used as well.
Child – 6″ across face
Petite/Womens – 8″ across face (Choose this option if you prefer a tighter fit)
Average – 9″ across face (Choose this option if you will be using an ear saver or prefer a looser fit)
Generous – 9″ across face, made longer for men with beards
The mask is serged on the edges for durability.
I have done my best to try to make masks that will fit everyone, but if you find that it is too big, IT IS EASY TO ADJUST THE MASK BY KNOTTING THE ELASTIC!
This mask is not a surgical mask or a medical mask. As such, not being designed for medical purposes, its usefulness might be limited and is not proven; you should not rely only on wearing such a mask, or any mask for that matter, to protect yourself and the ones around you.
After use, it should be removed and washed with detergent and then ironed with a hot iron, or soaked in a special antiseptic solution. After changing the mask, hands should be thoroughly washed with soap or treated with an alcohol-based antiseptic gel.
It’s recommended to wear face masks indoors, in places with a large crowd of people, when you are in a room with a sick person.
Even with a mask, please DILIGENTLY follow all CDC guidelines. Wearing a face mask does NOT mean you don’t have to follow social distancing!
Hand washing is recommended, but mask can be machine washed. Use a hot iron to sanitize between uses is an easy way to make sure you always have a clean mask!
