WASH AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Note washing of the media can only be done when it’s inside the cotton face mask’s cloth inner/outer layer to keep it from abrasion against heavier garments. The best way is to hand wash in lukewarm soapy water and let air dry. Do not wring or twist the face mask or filter material. Alternatively, you can use an Insta-Pot and put in ¼” water and place the face mask on the wire rack. Put on Pressure Cook for a 10-minute cycle. Let pressure down and your face mask is ready for a new cycle.
Note our Ankara face masks are not intended for clinical use.
The CDC has adopted a safety-first policy and is recommending everyone wear non-medical protective face coverings to help flatten the curve. Despite this remember this SHOULD be used in addition to practicing CDC recommendations on hand washing and social distancing.
