Maptote’s Face Mask Tips

Masks are here to stay, so we wanted to share some of our tips and best practices. We launched a line of adult and kids masks and wanted to share what we have found to be most useful when wearing them!

1. Wash the mask when you get them. Not only will this ensure they are completely clean when you first wear them, but the fabric will soften and shrink a little. It makes the fit a bit more comfortable. You’ll find that with each wash the fabric will get softer and softer!  

2. Fit the mask to your face. We’ve never been big believers that one size fits all, so we made sure to choose flexible elastic and make the ear loops longer than most. If the mask feels too baggy, it is really easy to re-knot the elastic for a perfect fit. The sides should gather a bit and not gap.

3. Add a filter. Our masks are double layered with an opening at the top, so you can put a filter inside. The filter will help with the effectiveness of the mask. You can use anything from a paper towel to a coffee filter to a certified mask filter. We’ve been using filters from Filti. Check them out!

4. Be safe. Follow all CDC guidelines, wash your hands often and wash your mask after each use. And don’t forget to smile! Just because we are all covered up doesn’t mean a smile doesn’t go a long way. Be kind everyone!

Please note, our reusable masks are not FDA approved and has not been tested for efficacy. Mask is not intended for medical use.
