How to use the CareAline Everyday Mask
Pull the bottom end of the elastic (with the cord lock) over your head and place behind your neck.
Put the mask up to your face and position over your nose and mouth.
Pull the top loop of elastic over your head and place at the crown of your head.
Adjust the fit of your mask by pressing the nose wire to fit snugly around the bridge of your nose, and tightening the elastic using the cord lock so the mask fits snugly on your face.
Wash your CareAline Everyday Mask using the following method in your home washer.
All EPA-registered bleach products have instructions for laundry sanitization on the label. Most of them indicate that the proper concentration is 1/3 – 1/2 cup per standard home washing machine load of 14-20 gallons of water. Some of the bleach products may vary in concentration and recommend a different level, so please check the label of the bleach that you are using. Do not use color-safe bleach.
IF YOU ARE WASHING THE MASKS ALONE AND HAVE A WEIGHT SENSING WASHER, PLEASE REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF BLEACH YOU ADD. We recommend washing with some towels and setting your washer to deep water to make sure the concentration is not too high. If the black binding on the mask fades, or you can smell bleach after the mask has been rinsed, you need to reduce the amount of bleach you are using in your load.
Use a regular laundry cycle and be sure to include the rinse step. Failure to rinse the fabric can result in local concentrations of chlorine bleach that may cause irritation to sensitive individuals. After the rinse, you may not be able to smell a bleach odor, but the chlorine bleach is still bound to the fabric.
Detergent is not required for the initial charging wash, but should be used for all maintenance washes along with the EPA-registered chlorine bleach.
The mask can be dried in any manner (tumble drier, line dry, etc.) without affecting the performance.
*The technology is durable up to 75 launderings.
Purchased four masks nearly a year ago and they are just beginning to show their wear now. Delighted that I did not have to bother with paper masks but unhappy that I have boxes of paper masks that I never used.
I am an average weight woman and need to wear the large, to be comfortable. It is GREAT (though the elastic is a little short). The medium is too tight - it rides up on my chin and pulls on my nose... The quality is terrific. Doesn't retain the bleach smell after it's been washed (in bleach).
