What size should I choose?

We sell different kinds of masks. Please consult the product info in our webshop. 

My mask does not fit well and is slightly too big. What now?

Try tying a small knot in the elastic loops of your mask or connect both loops behind the head using a small piece of thread.

At what temperature should I wash the masks?

Our masks should be washed at 60 °C, the temperature at which the virus should be inactivated. Research shows that the virus becomes inactive after 30 minutes in an environment of 56 °C. If you really want to be 100 % sure, you can follow the tips underneath: 
- Iron the masks with a steam iron, this generates a temperature high enough to neutralise possible viruses.
- Don’t use the masks for 3 days, the lifespan of the virus. 
- Wash your masks by hand and immerse them in a pot of boiling water.

Can I wash the filters together with the comfort masks?

Yes, you can wash them at 60 °C. We do recommend you to put your filters and comfort masks in a separate laundry bag.

 

How can I extend the life of my comfort masks?

Wash your comfort masks at 30 °C and keep them in your closet for about 3 days before using them again.

 

Can the central layer withstand high temperature washing?

We recommend washing the masks at a temperature of 60 ° C. At a higher temperature, the product cannot be guaranteed to withstand 50 washes.

Are these masks in accordance with the government’s regulations?

There are no official regulations face masks for personal use. Our masks are no surgical mouth masks like those used in healthcare. They are not standardised like the FFP2 / FFP3 masks. Our masks are based on what specialists indicate is important when making (reusable) cloth face masks. The masks are not suitable for medical staff, but for the general population. It is not necessary to add an extra filter. The mask already contains an antibacterial filter based on silver ions.

Is it possible to add an extra filter?

All masks have room for a filter. We work together with different producers. If you haven't received a filter with your mouth mask, do not worry. Your mouth mask has a filtering intermediate layer. An extra filter is,therefore, not necessary.

What FFP standard do the masks meet?

Our masks are no surgical face masks like those used in healthcare. They are not standardised like the FFP2 / FFP3 masks. Our masks are based on what specialists indicate is important when making reusable cloth masks. The masks are not suitable for medical staff, but for the general population.

Is there a piece of metal in the mask to minimise the space around the nose and are the earloops adjustable?

Yes, this is the case for our premium comfort masks and Smurfs masks.

They are individually packed.

 

Does the packaging happen in a sterile environment?

Yes.

 

Can I have an order delivered abroad?

No, this is not possible.
