Face mask | Mondkapje
This anatomical mask is one size fits all and is made of 3 layers.
An outer layer made from eco cotton STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, a middle filter and an inner layer made from 100% cotton.
A small strip of aluminium metal over the nose can be pinched together to get a snug fit with no gaps. DO NOT bend the strip backwards.
A single elastic loop goes above the ears resting quite HIGH ON THE BACK OF THE HEAD, LEAVING THE EARS FREE. The elastic should be worn high enough that it doesn't slip down and the bottom should be pulled back under the chin towards the throat, giving a secure fit.
All the masks are 60ºC machine washable but for convenience can be cleaned by placing in a bowl of hot water with a little washing soap after use.
When washed at 60ºC the mask will have a 5% shrinkage giving the correct fit.
The mask can be ironed.
The filter is made from microfibre HEPA vacuum cleaner bags and can be taken out and replaced with another filter. The mask comes with a pattern and instructions on how to make your own filters from vacuum cleaner bags.
Alternatively you can use a double layer of paper kitchen roll. Cut the kitchen roll in half and fold double to insert in the mask.
Made in Europe.
It is important to maintain a 1.5m distance from each other whilst wearing a mask.
The masks help prevent one touching one’s nose and mouth and also helps protect others from infected droplets, spread through coughing and sneezing.
Our masks are not certified medical masks and come with no assurances or refunds.
Wash your hands before and after putting on and removing the mask.
When removing the mask only touch the elastic.
From 25th May until 1st September the Dutch government will not charge the normal 21% VAT | BTW on face masks. The price of our masks have therefore dropped to €16.75 for this period.
