About the Organic Cotton Comfort Breathing Mask
This 100% certified Organic Cotton breathing Mask is made with three layers of soft, natural colour cotton. The mask is very effective at reducing exposure to dust, pollen, mould, dander and lint. No dyes or bleach have been used on the organic cotton. Adjustable non-organic, natural cotton twill ear loops hold the mask in place effectively sealing the area from pollutants. It is naturally latex-free.
There is a possible 3-5% shrinkage if washed or dried with heat. Wash before use.
Hand wash in cool water with an unscented detergent that does not leave a residue to clog the filter. Do not rub as rubbing could rearrange the weave of the fabric. Rinse well. To dry the mask quickly roll it in a terry cloth towel. Alternatively, hang the mask to dry.
Frequency of washing depends upon humidity, activity, and grit in the air. If breathing through the mask becomes difficult or you begin to feel a burning sensation in your chest, remove your mask and wash it. Do not dry clean. As the mask ages (washed about sixty times), the filtration becomes more “efficient,” meaning it needs to be washed more often–about every two to three hours instead of four to six hours of wearing time.
