Wearing a face covering helps:
1) Prevent some airborne droplets from being inhaled.
2) Stop the wearer from touching their own mouth and nose.
3) Protect other people from you if you are ill or carrying a virus.
4) Keeps precious medical masks available for the people who really need them.

The SilverPlus® treatment is good for 50 washes before it may start to weaken and is OEKO-TEX® certified. Suitable for up to 8 hours constant use between washes.
Hand wash (recommended)
Using warm water and a soap or detergent, gently hand wash your mask by run your fingers or the flat of your palm over the surface areas. Do not pull or stretch the material of the mask, as this may compromise the quality and/or damage the mask. Next, rinse out thoroughly in fresh clean water.
Machine wash (alternative)
If you prefer to machine wash then keep the temperature to a maximum of 30 degrees Celsius and use a good detergent.
DO NOT wring or twist to dry. If necessary, reshape the mask after washing and before drying, to prevent shrinkage. Hang mask to air dry naturally, preferably outside with fresh air. We do not recommend using a tumble drier to dry the mask.
Once you have a clean mask, store it away in a clean place. Do not leave it in a place where it could be exposed to another person.
All masks come with elastic straps that can been hooked around the ear. Straps come with a toggle to tighten the straps to the measurement you find the most comfortable. For extra comfort, try sliding the straps so that the knot sits under the fabric of the mask.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the straps are tight enough that the mask is tight to your face. A loose fitting mask will compromise the efficiency of the mask. We recommend wearing it for 5 minutes to test it before putting it to use in public.
