Below are some fun face mask facts and questions about face masks.
Recently, the president of the United State has strongly suggested individuals wear in public some form of face protection during this vital time in the slowing down of the spread of this deadly pandemic. Though some of the masks that we offer are helpful in medical environments, we make NO claim that our masks prevent our customers for contracting the virus.
Please practice social distancing and wash your hands often. Please refer to the guidelines on the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/
For our washable masks only, please hand wash in cold water and mild detergent. Hang dry only.
The KN95 masks are not washable but can be worn up to 30 days depending on the environment and the air quality.
We have had customers tell us that they sterilize the mask with Isopropyl alcohol. They put the Isopropyl alcohol in a clean or new small spray bottle and spray the mask on both sides after each use.
The filters will last a while depending on the use and the environment they are used in.
An average daily use would be 1-2 weeks and then discard.
The filters are not washable.
Cloth face coverings should—
• fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance. Should cloth face coverings be washed or otherwise
Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing.
