FITTING YOUR MASK
These masks have not been tied so you can adjust to your own size. For masks to be most effective there should be little to no gap on the sides. So, make sure you tie your elastic tight enough.Once you have the correct size and have tied a knot, slide the elastic around so the knot slips into the seam. This hides the knot and prevents irritation. If you need to readjust the size at any time slip the knot around again, untie and readjust.
WEARING YOUR MASK
The mask should be worn with the folds pointing down and fit snug over your nose and chin. Masks should only be worn once for a maximum of 4 hours before washing. If the mask becomes damp or wet in that time you should remove it immediately.
REMOVING YOUR MASK
Masks should be removed by the straps only, avoid touching the fabric.
WASHING YOUR MASK
It is safe to wash fabric masks with your regular washing and detergent. Ensure that the mask is fully dry before wearing again.
Please remember that these masks are handmade so there may be slight variation from mask to mask.
