The wearing of the mask is limited to 4 hours or when it is humid, after this period its effectiveness is no longer optimal. You must wear another and wash the previous one.How to wash and maintain the masks.
The mask, after being soiled or worn for more than 4 hours, must be washed at 60 ° C, always according to AFNOR
recommendations. This is why we have provided a kit of 21 barrier masks, because you will have to perform frequent rotations. thus you will gain autonomy and will be able to group washes. Although the fabrics can be washed at 60 ° C, the intensive frequency of washes necessary for its use will prematurely degrade the fastness of the colors.
