Frequently Asked Questions

Mask FAQ's

What are your masks made out of?

Our masks are made with two layers of tightly woven quilting weight cotton, a third 100% Polypropylene (Spun-bonded & Anti Microbial) interior layer, a nylon coated nose wire and 1/4" elastics with adjustable toggles.

Spun-bonded polypropylene is the Public Health Agency of Canada’s most recent filtration material recommendation.

Masks are light weight and breathable for easy all day wearing.
.

How do I care for my mask?

We recommend that masks are hand washed daily with soap and water. Masks should be soaked in hot water with dish soap or laundry soap for a minimum of 20 minutes. Scrub thoroughly, rinse well and air dry.
.
Polypropylene is heat sensitive and cannot tolerate temperatures over 50 degrees C. Please keep this in mind if choosing to machine wash. As a non-woven thermoplastic polymer material, Polypropylene will (literally) melt!


Are masks one size fits all?

Adult Masks are one size fits most! Adjustable toggles on the elastics allow for an easy custom fit.

Do you feel like you have a "small face?" Big Gradeschooler Size is equivalent to a "Ladies Small" size. We're always happy to accommodate an adult print in a kids size, if materials are available. Just ask us!

We offer three kids sizes, Preschooler (3-5yrs), Little Gradeschooler (6-8yrs) and Big Gradeschooler (9-12yrs) *see listings for dimension details

**The CDC advises children under 2 years old should not wear a face covering.

 

Will my mask filter viruses and bacteria?

These masks DO NOT meet Infection Prevention Standards. Handmade, reusable masks are suitable to use as a measure to prevent face touching, and to contain spray from your own mouth or nose.

 

Pouch FAQ's

How do I care for my Pouch?

Daily Washing: Turn the bag inside out and wipe liner to remove any food debris. Hang to dry.

As needed: Washing can be on a hot or warm cycle. The use of chlorine bleach is not recommended. Hang to dry or tumble. High heat can cause the liner to soften and fuse to itself.

*Can be wiped clean with sanitizer on the go
*Foods like avocado and carrots can (and likely will) stain the liner.

Your Pouches ARE washing machine safe!?

Yes! Our pouches are washing machine safe. The liner is rated for up to 300 industrial washings. Keep in mind - using less heat will extend the lifetime of your liner.
