Handmade mask best practices:
- Wash mask prior to use (Hot water, high heat drying, or boil in water)
- Knot elastic prior to wash
- Use only when leaving the house (for essential reasons only)
- Any insert is better than none, understanding that each option has varying protection (3M Filtrete, carbon cloth, coffee filter, tissue)
- Bend wire to conform around your nose
- Wash mask after each use
Some wrinkling and fading are apparent on face masks since they've been washed and dried on high heat to prevent further shrinking.
Please note that you are not purchasing the exact mask in the photos. Pattern placement and inside fabric varies. Colors may vary from the photos due to the nature of photographing and monitor color settings.
This device created should NOT be used as a replacement for conventional and approved Personal Protective Equipment. The device has not been industry tested nor has it been NIOSH approved and does not protect you from bacteria, germs and viruses including but not limited to Covid-19. We emphasize that this device has not been assessed for its comparative efficacy to prevent nosocomial infection in health care workers compared with the standard-of-care, the N-95 mask. The decision to use this device is solely your own.
Message from the CDC on HCP (Health Care Professional) use of homemade masks: In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.
USE FACE MASKS AT YOUR OWN RISK. NO CANCELLATIONS, RETURNS OR EXCHANGES.
