HOW TO USE

Make sure to properly fit the mask to maximize the amount of air that enters the mask through the filter. Everyone's face is slightly different. Follow the instructions on the download page to print a mask that has the best fit for your face.


Loops

Tie two elastic straps or rubber bands around the four loops. Do not use string, it can make it difficult to make and maintain a tight fit against your face.

Fit

Confirm that every edge of the mask fits firmly against your face. The goal is to get as much air as possible to enter the mask through the filter.

Custom Fit

Place the mask in 2" of hot water for a few seconds. Be careful as mask will be hot. Cover inside edge with a cloth, before bending to press against face until it hardens.

Filter

Cut a square of the most suitable filter media available that is slightly larger than the filter insert itself.

Breathing Port

Cover the filter insert with the filter media and insert it into the breathing port, making sure to line up the “bump-outs” on the insert with the indents inside the breathing port.

Disposal

After each use of the mask or whenever the filter media gets moist, remove the filter insert by pulling from its tab and dispose of the filter media into a closed trash container.

"Any filter material (HEPA, polypropylene) should be sandwiched in between two additional layers of fabric (cotton, silk or nylon) to prevent inhalation of filter materials.” -Stanford physician Sudeb C. Dalai 

Pay special attention to how easy it is to breathe through your mask.

While this mask is meant to be reusable, depending on the material and type of disinfectant used, the mask may begin to deteriorate. Once the mask shows signs of deterioration, it should be disposed of.

HOW TO DISINFECT

rs=h_1300,cg_true.jpeg


The USA government’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) website recommends using a bleach solution or alcohol with greater than 70% alcohol content as a disinfectant against COVID-19.

Find Details Here:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/cleaning-disinfection.html A bleach solution can be produced by (cdc.gov) 5 tablespoons, (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water, or 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water.
Thoroughly clean out any disinfectant after soaking the mask with clean water! 





MUST READ

It should be noted that this mask is not meant to replace N95 respirators or surgical masks.

Procedure masks fit loosely to the face and act as barriers to splashes or aerosols (such as the moisture from a sneeze). Respirators create a seal around the mouth/nose and filter out particles such as viruses.

No government approved testing has been conducted to prove the effectiveness of this mask.

All people associated with the conception and design of this mask —as well as with the publication of this website— make no medical claims that using this mask will prevent catching COVID-19 or other viruses.
