Wearing your covering

How do I wear my face covering?

  1. Wash your hands well with soap and water.
  2. Optionally insert additional filtration into the filter pocket if desired. Read about filters here.
  3. The filter pocket opening is the inside of your covering - with this side towards your face, place the cover over your nose, mouth and chin and loop the elastics over your ears. The nose wire should be at the top (on the bridge of your nose) and the chin tuck should fit below your chin. 
  4. Adjust and spread the pleats and shape the nose wire until you find a comfortable and secure fit. Shaping the wire as close to the bridge of your nose both ensures a proper seal and will improve comfort. 
  5. Do not touch or adjust your face covering while wearing. Remove the cover from the ear loops.
  6. Wash after each wear. See care instructions here.

For Mini coverings

Our Mini style is made for smaller faces and features a tie-to-fit ear loop. For the initial use, you'll need to fit the elastic following these steps:

  1. Determine what size you’d like the ear loop to be by holding the face covering up to your child’s face. Pinch the elastic behind the ear where you’d like to tie it
  2. Tie a tight knot in the elastic in the determined location. Trim the ends no shorter than .75”.
  3. Rotate and slide the elastic loop so that the knot is hidden inside of the cotton casing. Your knot should not show when complete.
  4. If desired, place an optional additional filter into the filter pocket. 
  5. Place the covering on your child’s face with the filter pocket on the inside. On the outside, the pleats should be pointing downward.
  6. Do not touch or adjust your face covering while wearing. Remove the cover from the ear loops.
  7. Wash after each wear. See care instructions here.
