What To Do When I Receive The Mask
When you receive the masks please pick them up with gloves. Discard the packaging. Place masks into the washer. Remove gloves and wash hand thoroughly. Wash the masks in cold water. Then dry them on low heat. Press with iron (optional). This helps with protection from COVID 19 being on the packaging or masks. This is the best method we can suggest at this time.
What If My Elastic Breaks
Just remove the elastic. Using the video on the Make Masks page. Using a safety pin feed new elastic through the mask and knot off. If you don’t have elastic or cannot find elastic both cording, shoe laces, and other sturdy string will work. Just feed it through with a safety pin just like the elastic.
Some of the masks being made are not the style here and if that’s the case and the elastic breaks then you will need new pieces of elastic to be sewn in the same places as the old elastic.
