About the masks
All masks are made of 100% cotton and are pre-washed, hence some may look wrinkled ; )
I recommend you wash your mask daily, or after 4-6 hours of use. Wash in warm soapy water, if machine washing remember to remove the nose wire (highly recommended) and wash on regular cycle. Air dry, iron, and wear again.
You can make an easy filter with a folded tissue paper, kitchen (or shop) paper towel, a cotton handkerchief, or even with a cut HEPA filter (some manufacturers weave metal particles into filtering material, so do your part and research the material you're using). PM 2.5 charcoal activated filters fit most masks, but their best purpose is filtering dust rather than bacteria or viruses.
For virus protection Halyard Sterilization Material can be used (purchase in my online store) and it is the material that surgical masks are made with. Clean Halyard under UVc light or in a jar with 70% alcohol (just enough liquid to thoroughly soak the material by shaking the jar is sufficient). Allow it to air dry completely before reuse. If you would like to try the Halyard filter write me a note and I will include a sample with your mask order. This is the filter I use.
Nose bridge wire
You can purchase extra nose bridge wires from my store. All masks arrive with the softer more pliable wire. If you are ordering Custom Mask, you will be asked which nose bridge wire you would prefer. If you are ordering from available stock, you can write me a note if you want a stronger nose piece, so I can switch it for no extra charge.
All wires can be purchased separately as well.
