How is this bamboo silver ion face mask better than other cloth masks?
Silver ion is well established as an antimicrobial defense mechanism that is widely used in many industries to inhibit the growth of microorganisms. By spinning already naturally superior bamboo yarn interwoven with silver, you achieve substantially improved hygienic effects that will last for the life of the product (and many laundry cycles). The result is the highest performing fabric in terms of comfort and safety.
Does the bamboo face mask work for pollution and dust?
The dual-layer, tight knit bamboo yarn is an effective covering against dust, pollen, sand, droplets, smoke, and general pollution (i.e., mixtures of particles in the air). When adjusted securely about the face, the mask can help prevent such particles from landing on, or being inhaled through the mouth and nose.
How is the bamboo face mask better than other cloth masks?
Bamboo fabric is ultra-soft and moisture wicking, yet more durable, wrinkle-resistant, and breathable than other fabrics like cotton and polyester. The bamboo plant itself offers natural antimicrobial properties to prevent the growth of microogranisms, including resistance to odor-causing bacteria. Finally, bamboo withstands laundering more effectively so the fabric won't shrink or fade in the same way as other fibers.
Is it safe to use silver in a face mask? Will I breathe in some of the silver ion?
The silver is completely safe and cannot be inhaled.
Does the silver ion affect the breathability of this mouth covering?
Not at all. The breathability is equivalent or superior to the standard bamboo mask.
How is bamboo silver ion material made?
It is actually silver yarn that is spun with the bamboo yarn, not a finish. This means that the silver is intrinsically part of the fabric.
Will the antimicrobial properties of the silver ion deteriorate over time?
Because we use interwoven silver yarn, the antimicrobial effects are long lasting for the lifetime of the fabric. They won't "wash out" over time like finishes.
How often should I wash my bamboo face mask?
As per CDC guidance, you should wash your mask after each use where possible. See our section on laundering details for guidance on how to wash and dry the mask.
What is the expected lifetime of this bamboo silver ion face mask?
30-50 washes depending on care and use.
- Adult: 8.5 inch x 5 inch (22 cm x 13 cm) inch at widest part
- Child (recommended for 8 yrs old and under): 6 inch x 3.5 inch (15 cm x 9 cm) at widest part
CDC guidance on fabric masks states "a washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face coverings." Additional research has also shown that normal detergent is sufficient to disinfect the cloth against the covid-19 virus. If you choose to to launder at high temperatures, we strongly suggest choosing bamboo instead of cotton. Bamboo is much more resilient to high temperature treatment.
- Wash Temperature: in terms of fabric longevity, we recommend wash cool with like colors, lay flat to dry. While it may be the case that hot water is better to clean/neutralize any microorganisms, hot water has adverse impacts on fabric in general. It causes fading or degradation of the fabric, which becomes less soft and looks worn. Cool/cold water is much easier on the fabric in terms of lifespan.
- Handling: if possible, wash inside of a small garment bag to help maintain shape and prevent tangling with other items.
- Detergent: preference is up to you, but we recommend unscented if possible, since any strong scents will obviously be right in front of your nose and be irritating.
- Drying: once again, some recommend high heat, but dryer heat has adverse impacts on the fabric too. Cotton specifically will shrink. Bamboo will be the best to withstand this type of treatment. Lay flat to dry is our recommendation.
