Do you need a filter for your homemade face mask?
What Scientist Say About Filters:
According to a study conducted by Dr. Scott Segal, chair of anesthesiology at Wake Forest Baptist Health in partnership with Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the best homemade masks they tested for filtering the most particles were constructed from a heavyweight “quilters cotton” with a thread count of at least 180 because its weave is thicker and tighter, which allows for fewer particles to pass through.”
What CDC Says About Washing Face Masks:
Using CDC flu virus guidelines, clothing and reusable masks should be washed at a temperature of at least 167 degrees. That is the minimum temperature proven to kill the flu virus. Chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, and detergent are all effective cleaning products.

Why Is It Important To Wear A Face Mask:
“We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms,” according to the advisory published by the CDC. “This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity — for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing — even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.”
♦ Copper Infused Face Masks ♦
Copper is well-known for its ability to stop and kill the growth of bacteria and other infectious pathogens. These masks have 17% copper infused into threads of fabric woven into the cotton and will never wash out - anti-odor and moisture-wicking. The interior is an organic cotton barrier fabric with a very tight weave of very fine GOTS certified organic cotton yarn into fabric. Because our organic barrier fabric is so tightly woven the spaces between the threads are under 3.5 microns, and filters about at least 95% of very small. 3-micron particles. The masks are washable, reusable and sustainable, without any loss of hygienic potency over time. Their copper protection will last through the lifespan of the product and never washes out.

♦ Organic Cotton Face Masks ♦
Our organic barrier fabric is so tightly woven the spaces between the threads are under 3.5 microns, and filters about at least 95% of very small. 3-micron particles. They are not particulate filtering N95 medical masks, but will provide protection and help inhibit the transmission of Covid-19.

♦ Organic Cotton & Silk Face Masks ♦
Silk is the most lightweight fabric and more absorbent than cotton making this the perfect face mask for hot conditions designed for children and adults.
