Protea Bright Floral Mask
Not only are our masks ON TREND but super comfortable too, with adjustable straps to guarantee they stay in place. Being reusable, they are the perfect alternative to disposable masks which end up in landfill.
Each mask includes 3 x PM2.5 mask filters that should be changed each month or after 60 hours of use, whichever is sooner.
Every mask is designed to fit over the nose and under the chin and comes in a resealable zip lock bag for protection against germs and to help keep you safe.
What is a Fabric Face Mask?
Fabric masks are re-usable. Fabric face masks need to be washed with warm water after every use. Filters within the face mask cannot be washed, these are to be discarded.
Fabric face masks must also be considered in busy settings like when travelling in public transport, shared taxis, Ubers and trains, in workplaces, in grocery stores and other crowded environments.
Who should wear which mask, how and when?
Fabric face masks are also known as non-medical masks; they should be worn by people in public places where a distance of two metres cannot be maintained, in areas where COVID-19 is widespread.
PM 2.5 filters are shown to be effective in blocking the vast majority of airborne particulates, even the very smallest nanoparticles. Carbon filter and water resistant layers are the best protection on the market without being medical grade. Each filter lasts up to 60 hours continual wear or a month, whichever comes first. The PM 2.5 name comes from these filters' original use as protection against particulate.
Are they machine washable?
Yes, MASKiT masks are machine washable at 60 degrees as recommended by the DHHS guidelines. They can also be washed by hand. The PM 2.5 filters are not washable - these are disposable.
