Frequently Asked Questions
How do I care for my mask?
Nose Tab & Wire Free Masks: Washing machine safe. Use a lingerie bag to protect elastics from being tugged or tangled in other items. It may be helpful to iron/press your mask to maintain well formed pleats.
Full Length Wired Masks: Hand wash your mask 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. It may be helpful to iron/press your mask to maintain well formed pleats.
What are your masks made out of?
Our masks are made with two layers of tightly woven, quilting weight cotton as per CDC guidelines.
They are light weight and breathable so wearing your mask will feel natural.
1/8" woven elastics are thin while durable, and comfortably hook around your ears. Elastics are a standard length, but can be easily adjusted with a simple knot.
Are masks one size fits all?
We offer Standard Size and Large Size adult masks. There is 1" of extra elastic length in the large mask. *see listings for dimension details
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.
My mask is too loose, what do I do?
We use 1/8 inch elastic that can be knotted for a custom fit. You can also use petite hair elastics to cinch the elastic for a similar shortening effect.
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.
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.
