Do the masks offer the level of protection as surgical masks do?
No. According to medical practitioners, surgical masks still offer the best protection against foreign particles. However, there is new evidence to support the assertion that fabric masks do offer protection against foreign particles. In addition, by using fabric masks, we are also leaving more surgical masks for the people who need it more – medical frontline staff, who face COVID-19 patients head-on every day.
How should I take care of and wash the masks?
Since they are made of fine cotton, hand-washing with laundry detergents are recommended. This will ensure the longevity of your masks. We also recommend that you wash the filter inside the mask to keep its shape.
