Cloth protective mask is CDC recommended, 100% tightly-woven cotton masks double-stitched, with back stitching at the pleats to help them retain their shape, comfortable to wear and durable! We recommend, for best use, to wear them once and then hand wash them in anti-bacterial soap (i.e. anti-bacterial dishwashing liquid) in hot water, and rinse! Lay them in your window sill and allow them to dry in direct sunlight! You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fresh they’ll smell the next time you put them on! Or, you can machine wash them (of course) and dry them on low heat. Each elastic band is 1/4″ for comfort! New patterns are coming daily! Deanna Adelle PPE! Watch for our “New Mask” alerts on FaceBook coming weekly!
