HOW TO USE
Always use a clean mask, do not reuse previously used masks without washing them with soap and hot water. Inserting a filter is recommended. Then put the ties over your head and the mask against your nose and mouth – the filter pocket should face your chin). Adjust the straps so it's secure and then pinch the nose wire to fit your nose, adjusting the mask to fit your face. Once you are done using it, first wash your hands before removing the mask by holding the ties only. Do not touch the front of the mask. Wash the mask immediately with soap and hot water and then wash your hands and face as well as a precaution.
Hand wash the mask before first use, and after EVERY use with soap and hot water. Air dry. Do not put the mask in a dryer or dryclean it. Remove any filter before washing.
