Respirator Style Face Mask with Filter - Blue Marble
1 Respirator Style Face Mask with Filter - Blue Marble
Handmade in the USA!
This is a LIMITED EDITION respirator style face mask.
At this moment there is only enough fabric for 20 masks!!!
The filters (non woven) are sewn within the mask and do not need to be replaced unless they have been damaged or compromised, at which time a new mask is recommended.
Multiple masks are recommended to make sure you have one available as one is being cleaned and drying. Or if one is damaged.
These masks are not meant to last forever! Please replace them as soon as they are worn out. It is advised to replace them after 2-3 weeks of continuous use.
The masks are designed to fit comfortably around your nose and mouth creating a complete seal preventing outside air from entering the mask from the edges.
They should be put on before going out or and adjusted well especially at the nose bridge to ensure no air leaks are coming inside the mask at the edges.
Once on, the mask should fit comfortably for several hours with minimal adjusting.
When adjusting use only one hand at either the top strap at the back of the head or at the front point of the mask. Do not handle mask around face if possible.
The mask should not be touching your mouth and you should be able to speak and move your mouth freely.
If fitted correctly around the nose bridge, it should not fog glasses.
Each mask should be cleaned immediately after any exposure or wear.
They are hand wash only.
Same as you would your hands, using antibacterial soap.
Wash thoroughly, rubbing all over, making sure the soap is throughout.
Soak in hot water for several minutes, then rinse.
Do not wring. Hang to air dry.
Do not place in microwave since there is a metal nose bridge.
You may boil the mask if necessary.
These masks are NOT a proper medical device.
But they are greater protection than basic masks out there that do not properly cover your nose and mouth.
Please make sure when you are buying a homemade mask that there are not open areas that air just flows in and out without any cover.
Just like a home HVAC unit, all air needs to go through some kind of filter even if it’s just a cloth.
Masks which are rectangular have open sides which allow contaminated air to flow towards your nose and mouth.
Any disposable filter would be rendered useless in this type of mask since the air is just flowing in without it even passing through the filter.
The masks in my shop provide a complete seal around your nose and mouth.
