This anatomical face mask (mondkapje) is one size fits all and is made of 3 layers.
An outer layer made from 100% cotton, a middle HEPA filter and an inner layer made also 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.
The microfibre HEPA vacuum cleaner bag filters (made from polypropylene) are 94% effective at keeping out viruses. The filter (which can be washed with the mask) 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 layer of paper kitchen roll. Cut the kitchen roll (8cm x 11 cm) and insert in the mask.
The mask helps prevent one touching one’s nose and mouth and also helps protect others from infected droplets, spread through coughing and sneezing.
Wash your hands before and after putting on and removing the mask. When removing the mask only touch the elastic.
Made in Europe.
Remove the metal strip from the nose tunnel before washing.
All the masks are 60ºC machine washable.
Hand wash by placing in a bowl of hot water with a little washing detergent.
When washed at 60ºC the mask will have a 5% shrinkage giving the correct fit.
The mask can be ironed.
