How to wear a face mask?
1) Wash your hands with soap before applying the face mask.
2) Place a face mask on your face, holding the ear loops. Avoid touching the mask.
3) When you no longer need the mask, remove the mask by pulling on one of the earloops and place it in a closable cloth bag. (plastic bags are not a good option in this situation [link to health instructions])
4) Wash your hands again with soap.
Can the mask be adjusted?
Of course it can! A good fit is one of the essential elements of a protective face mask. The ear loops on the mask are loosely attached, allowing you to cut the stitch off and/or tie the loops to the tension that works best for you. You can rotate the knot to hide it under the side seam. That way it doesn’t cause any pressure behind your ears or feel uncomfortable.
How do I wash the mask and how often?
You can find a link to the care instructions in the footer.
