Always taking care.
Stay safe and stress free with easy filter changes and cleaning.
For a person who only has occasional contact with the public, and can stay physically distanced, we recommend:
- Change Original filters at least every 2 weeks.
You should change your filters more often if:
- You interact daily with the general public, such as for a job
- You or someone you care for is immunocompromised
- Your filters get wet while in use
- Your think your filters may be contaminated
These are guidelines only, as you know your personal situation and risk level best. Please note that no mask can eliminate the breathing in of all particles or the possibility of getting sick. We have previously stated that our Original filters can be used for unlimited wear time, but felt that did not adequately account for the pandemic-time risk of contamination or degradation due to humidity.
The facepiece, filter caps, and fabric overlay may be washed by hand using a mild soap or detergent. Alternatively, you can place them all in a laundry delicates bag and machine-wash them on the delicates cycle in cold water.
When not in use, the Breathe99 Mask can be folded in half with the overlay straps used to secure it closed. Alternatively, the mask can be left on a clean surface or hung somewhere that is out of the way. Do not store in a sealed container because this prevents moisture evaporation.
