This is not a medical-grade mask, toy, or Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and is not intended as a replacement for medical-grade personal protective equipment or other recommended measures to stop the community spread of any viruses including social distancing, washing your hands, and refraining from touching your face. The exterior of the mask can become contaminated, so take precautions including washing your hands after touching the mask.
This is not an FDA approved product. This product makes no claims of antimicrobial protection, antiviral protection, particulate filtration, or infection prevention or reduction. This product is not intended for use in a medical setting.
This mask should not be placed on young children under age 3, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
Our aim is to make face masks that may help. We make the masks of cotton or cotton blends, because we understand (from recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control) that cotton material balances protection and the ability to breathe.
If used appropriately, the masks may capture many (by no means all) bacterial and virus particles so that you won’t breathe them in. However, some particles, such as COVID-19 virus particles, are so tiny that they may not be captured.
WE CANNOT AND DO NOT IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER PROMISE OR GUARANTEE THAT THE FACE MASKS WILL WORK FOR THE INTENDED PURPOSE. THE MATERIALS USED ARE NOT FOOLPROOF AGAINST ALL PARTICLES. FOR EXAMPLE, THEY MAY NOT CAPTURE OR PREVENT INTAKE OF COVID-19 VIRUS PARTICLES. IN USING THE MASK, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU DO SO 100% AT YOUR OWN RISK.
ALSO, YOU ARE COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR USING THEM CORRECTLY!
However, we do suggest that you:
- Wash your mask BEFORE use
- Try to avoid touching the inside or outside of the mask fabric; handle the mask by the straps
- Wash mask after couple of uses
If your mask has an opening for a filter, you are wholly responsible for determining what filter to use, if any (note: some HEPA vacuum cleaner bags contain fiberglass!)
