The face cover has a printed outside cover made from quilting weight cotton fabric and a non-woven fabric interface. The lining is made from a high thread count Egyptian cotton. There is a pocket for a filter (optional and not supplied) between the two layers plus a pocket for a nose wire (included)
Filters should be made of non-woven materials. Suggested filter materials include:
The cover should be washed, using your usual detergent, either in the machine with the rest of your washing, or by hand. Air dry or in the machine. Some agencies advise that washing and drying should be at a high temperature. Before washing, always remove the filter and nose wire. Dispose of the filter but the nose wire can be re-used.
The hand sanitiser bottle holder comes with a split ring and a lobster clasp so that it can be attached to your bag or perhaps a belt. It will take the majority of small sanitiser bottles but as they come in so many shapes and sizes, fit cannot be guaranteed. I can remove the lobster clasp if you would prefer not to have it.
Keep your face cover clean in your zip topped bag while you are out and return it safely after use so that it doesn’t contaminate anything else you are carrying. When you no longer need your face cover, you can use your zip bag for a make-up bag or wash-bag. Your bag can be washed at the same time as the face cover if you wish.
Remember to wash or sanitise your hands before putting your face cover on and taking it off. Further guidance can be found on the Government website at gov.uk/coronavirus. It should be noted that these are not surgical grade fask masks and Hemiola Crafts takes no responsibility for the incorrect use of this face cover. All advice is given in good faith and taken from reputable sources. If you are in doubt then there are many research articles available online.
The sets consist of a face cover, a handy holder for your hand sanitiser bottle and a waterproof lined zipped carry bag or pouch and costs £12. Sold separately, the face covers and the carry bag cost £6 each and £3 for the sanitiser bottle holder. You are therefore effectively receiving the bottle holder free of charge when you buy a set.
