How to care for your face mask so that it’s effective in protecting you.

Now that all over the UK, people are expected to wear face coverings when in public, we need to be mindful about how effective our face coverings are to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Hopefully by now, you’ve already got a face mask in your possession, but you might not know how to look after it to ensure that it is providing you with the best protection. 

 

How many face masks should you own?

Whilst having a single mask is a good start, it’s often a good idea to have at least two. This is so if you have one in the wash or you have misplaced yours, you can leave the house and protect yourself and others. 

Make sure you wear your face mask wherever you go out in public whilst at the same time, aiming to maintain physical distancing. 

When is it safe to take your mask off?

It’s always best to keep your mask on until you have finished your errand and you can remove it safely away from others. Before you remove your mask, make sure you wash your hands or you use alcohol based hand sanitiser, then grasp the ear loops and remove the mask, finish by washing your hands thoroughly. 

 

How often should you wash your face mask?

In an ideal world, you should wash your face mask after every wearing as this will reduce the risk of spreading germs. Bear in mind that certain masks, such as single use surgical masks cannot be washed and reused and will need to be thrown away regularly. 

Best practice is to always check the instructions that came with your mask in regards to cleaning to ensure it is protecting you efficiently. 

 

How often should I change the filter in my mask?

As a general rule of thumb, the inner filter in your AirX Coffee Mask can be used for 30 days. Always follow the guidelines from your mask’s supplier, as requirements  differ. Sticking to those rules will maximise your mask’s effectiveness. If you need any replacement filters you can buy them from the AirX store.

What makes the AirX Coffee Mask so sustainable?

AirX isn’t your typical run of the mill face-mask, in fact we’ve made key decisions to make our masks as sustainable and as eco-friendly as possible with a key philosophy that defines the AirX Coffee Mask;

Recycle, Reuse, Return

The AirX Coffee Mask seeks to minimise its impact on the planet through its Recycle, Reuse, Return philosophy.

RECYCLE

The AirX Coffee Mask is unlike any other mask on the market as it is made from 100% recycled materials. The core material is coffee-yarn, which is a natural and biodegradable material created by using upcycled coffee grounds which would otherwise go to waste and end up in landfills. Coffee yarn is waterproof and robust whilst remaining a sustainable fabric. The robustness of the fabric means it will last for an extremely long time so you won’t need to replace it. 

Even the inner filter in the AirX is made out of sustainable coffee yarn, only creating waste that is biodegradable.

REUSE

The AirX Coffee Mask is washable and reusable, lasting at least 10 years, reducing single-use waste. With proper care the Coffee Mask can last you a lifetime allowing you to protect your health as well as the planet simultaneously. With more and more of us choosing to live sustainably, wearing this upcycled, reusable and biodegradable mask offers a stylish way to minimise our impact on the planet.  

RETURN

The AirX Coffee Mask is biodegradable returning its natural components safely to the earth so you don’t have to worry about what will happen to your mask once it’s been thrown away. This also applies to the biodegradable inner filter which has an effective life of 30 days, much longer than competing filters. 

If you’re worried about your impact to the planet and you want a product that minimises environmental footprint – look no further, this might be the perfect face mask for you. If you have any questions about the AirX Coffee Mask, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help.
