Reusable Face masks
DUE TO HIGH DEMAND I CURRENTLY RUN OUT OF MATERIALS; I WILL CHANGE THE STATUS ONCE NEW MATERIAL ARRIVES. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR ORDERS AND STAY SAFE!
£1 from each sale goes towards making free masks for those in biggest need.
These are made from available cotton or polycotton. (you can see examples in the gallery here) If you are ordering child size, please order adult if you feel your child might require that size. Child size masks are 2cm narrower than ladies ones.
They are lined and have an opening to insert additional filter material for extra protection. You need to wash them at high temperature after each use and when in use, please DO NOT TOUCH IT until you take it off, and put straight into hot water. WASH AT 60 degrees C.
Fabrics may vary. I try to use appropriate pattern for men and women where possible. Some might be plain. As a filter you can use non-woven materials (grease-proof baking paper, folded tissue, interfacing) but make sure you BIN IT after each use and replace it. Note: Respirator and medical mask filters are typically composed of mats of nonwoven fibrous materials, such as wool felt, fiberglass paper, or polypropylene.
In public, you should wear them to keep the tiny droplets expelled in breath or coughs from landing on surfaces that could be touched by others or as a reminder to not touch your face.
This is NOT a replacement for surgical or clinical masks! They are not clinically certified. I am only trying to help those wanting to do little extra to minimise the spread of sprays from our mouths and noses.
These masks help to create a barrier from water droplets and dust and are a visible but attractive sign that your are trying to self-isolate.
Lots of people wear them incorrectly. Please make sure you do not fiddle with them, do not touch the outside once you are wearing it as this would pass droplets onto the fingers. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask.
Please watch this video about how to put it on and take it off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrvFrH_npQI&feature=emb_logo
- This mask is to help to reduce spread of droplets between you and others.
- Frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water is necessary.
- You should still use 2m social distance in public where possible
These fabric masks should be washed at 60 degrees. You should also steam iron them but avoid ironing the elastic. Please note these masks cannot be returned or refunded.
