Refill 10-pack filters for your rectangular face mask filter bag i silk. These washable filters come in a simple plastic bag and fit in 10-filters with silk bag.
These washable filters are especially made to fit our Silk face mask with rectangular shape. They fit perfectly in the pocket on the backside of the face mask. The filter has a small wire sewn in the upper part of the filter. This will help to shape the mask over your nose when wearing. The non-woven filters are made by Spunbond.
Instructions for washable filter:
Remove the filter when washing the mask. If you want to wash both , you don’t have to remove the filter.
Wash the filter with hand wash on 30 degrees. Wash the filter with soap and scrub them for at least 20 seconds with warm to hot water before drying.
Air dry the filter
Put it back in the mask before wearing. Make sure the side with wire is inserted first. This results in that the wire can be shaped over your nose.
Please note that face masks filters are considered a personal use item. That means that we are not offering returns or exchanges as we normally do with other items.
The filter will add an extra layer to the mask and will therefor improve the mask filtering functions. However there is not yet a standard for non-medical masks and filters and therefore we are not able to give any more information about the percentage of filtered particles. What we do know is that these filters are used as face mask by ambulance staff in Lithuania.
This is a new product and it’s still being tested by our own team. The recommendations can therefore change. For example, it can be that the filter looses its filtering function every time it’s washed.
We refer to the technical report form the European centre for disease control and prevention for more information about wearing masks in the community.
