Everything about your mouth-nose mask

Why wearing a mouth-nose mask makes sense.

If all people in public space wear mouth-nose masks, the spread of SARS-CoV-2 can be slowed down.

Because the medical masks belong in medicine, we have made masks for you from our cotton fabrics. 

Although you don't have any symptoms, you can have the virus and infect other people. This is especially true when you are young, because young people often do not notice the disease at all. So one mask protects the others prophylactically from you.

How can wearing a mask protect?

Cotton fabrics filter 70% of infectious particles and even very small viruses, an additional filter (which you can make from a vacuum cleaner bag) holds even more back. Almost all of our masks have a slot in the interior, in which you can put a filter. 

How to put the mask on properly?

It is very important that the mask is tight on your face. The masks have a wire that allows you to adjust the mask to suit your face shape. You can also adjust the rubber bands so that the mask covers your mouth-nose part safely. 

Which filter do I need for the mask?

In almost all of our masks there is a slot in the interior of the mask into which you can insert a filter. For example, you can use vacuum cleaner bags as a filter. 

Examples of commercially available vacuum cleaner bags that can be used for this type of respiratory protection:

You cut the filters to match the size of the mask and then insert them into the slot. Important: The filter must be changed after each wear. 

How and when does the mask need to be washed?

It is ideal to wash the mask after each wearing. It is advantageous to wash the mask with a laundry bag so that the metal does not damage the washing machine. 

The mask should be washed at at least 60 degrees. In addition, we recommend a hygienic detergent, but this is not necessary. It is important that the mask is cleaned in the boiling water.
