Fabric face masks are recommended as an addition to hand-washing and social distancing, in order to significantly reduce your risk of spreading a virus. Our masks are designed to cover your nose to chin and fasten by means of elasticated ear loops for maximum comfort.
When handling the mask, only touch the ear loops and avoid touching the fabric and/or filter. Fidgeting with the mask repeatedly is strongly discouraged, as it is important to avoid touching the face with hands.
Our fabric face masks are packaged as 3-packs that contains 3 x masks & 13 x D15 filters. This is due to it being recommended that each person should have at least 3 fabric face masks, so that one face mask is available to wear, while the other is being washed and the last safely stored in a sanitised container, always ready for use whereever you are.
PLEASE NOTE: D15 filters can only be sterilised and used 5 times. Discard D15 filter after 5th use and be sure to sterilise and dry before safely discarding the D15 filter in the trash.
It is, nevertheless important to observe basic rules when using these fabric face masks to ensure that they are used optimally:
The 3 layer D15 filter has been specially developed and manufactured in South Africa for use in face masks for the general population. It works by entrapping 95% of micro particles above 5μm (microns) to help in the fight against viruses. Each filter may be sterilised 5 x times before discarding.
