Patriotic Flag Face Mask With Filter Pocket and Elastic Bands To Slip Over The Ears / Memorial Day Face Masks / 4th of July Masks
Regular price $12.45
This listing is for a 3 Layer Red, White and Blue Patriotic Flag Face Mask With Filter Pocket For Adults. (PLEASE NOTE THE MASKS ARE NOT TO BE USED AS A MEDICAL DEVICE). Elastic is used as a fastener to slip over the ears. The elastic slips through the casing on the mask and you will be able to tie for adjustment to fit comfortably around the ears. The elastic can be removed easily if you prefer to change out the elastic that go around the ears to go around your head and neck instead. You would need to purchase your own elastic or other type of fastener. All masks are made using cotton and cotton blend fabrics. A layer of fabric is used as the main front, a secondary fabric is used as the interior liner, and the third fabric is used as a filter pocket which will hold an added layer of face protection for yourself and others when out in public. Some ideas for a filter would be a high thread count piece of sheet, piece od dish towel, Piece of T shirt, piece of Hepa Filter from a vacuum bad or furnace filter. Remember that when you cut up any of these products to fit the filter pocket, they will make your mask warmer when wearing and breathing will be more difficult as they do not allow as much air flow through WARNING: Please do not use masks on children under two or on people who have difficulty breathing as these masks do get a little warm when worn as they cover the face. IMPORTANT TO KNOW: THESE ARE NOT N95 MASKS AND SHOULD NOT BE TREATED AS A MEDICAL MASK TO PREVENT ILLNESS. These masks will help you from keeping your hands away from your face and if you are ill it will keep you from breathing directly on others. INTSTRUCTIONS FOR ADJUSTING MASK: 1. LOOSELY TIE ENDS OF EACH PIECE OF ELASTIC WHEN ADJUSTING THE MASK FOR A TIGHT FIT ON YOUR FACE 2. ONCE YOU HAVE OBTAINED THE CORRECT FIT, TIE THE ELASTIC INTO A TIGHT KNOT ON EACH SIDE. 3. TRIM DOWN THE ELASTIC IF THERE IS TOO MUCH OVERAGE OF ELASTIC. 4. SLIDE KNOTTED ENDS OF ELASTIC INTO THE CASING SO THAT THE KNOTTED PORTION IS HIDDEN. 5. SLIP MASK ON AND YOU ARE READY TO GO. 6. ALWAYS HAND WASH MASK WITH SOAP IN WATER IF YOU WEAR DAILY OR WASH THE MASK IN THE MACHINE ON THE DELICATE CYLE. ALWAYS TAKE ANY TYPE OF FILTER PRIOR TO WASHING THE MASK. DRY ON LOW. IRONING THE MASK WILL REMOVE WRINKLES FABRIC SELECTION CAN BE CHOSEN BY VIEWING ANY OF THE PRODUCTS YOU SEE IN MY SHOP INCLUDING COLLARS, BANDANAS, FLOWERS OR BOW TIES AND STATING IN THE NOTES SECTION TO ME WHEN ORDERING WHICH FABRIC STYLE YOU WOULD LIKE. Adult masks are one size and children’s masks are one size. Elastic is used as bands for slipping over the ears. I have included a filter pocket which can be used to insert additional protection if desired such as a coffee filter, cut up vacuum cleaner filter bag, cut up dish towel, high thread count piece of a sheet or even a cut up T shirt. You will want to use tightly woven fabrics to prevent some air flow through the mask. Keep in mind that cotton fabrics are breathable so you will be able to breathe well while wearing but it will be slightly warm. When you add a filter, the mask will be warmer yet and breathing may be more difficult. It will be up to you if you would like to add a filter to the pocket. WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: MASKS ARE TO BE WASHED AFTER EVERY USE. WASH ON THE DELICATE CYLE AND DRY ON LOW OR HAND WASH WITH SOAP AND WATER IF USED DAILY. IF YOU HAVE ADDED A FILTER TO THE MASK, PLEASE ALWAYS REMOVE BEFORE USING. CONSTRUCTION: The face masks are made using cotton and cotton blend fabrics. A layer of fabric is used as the main front, a secondary fabric is used as a liner, and the third fabric used if for a filter pocket which can be used to add additional safety protection. 1/4”W elastic is used to slip over the ears.
