We have been producing cloth facemasks to combat COVID19 and provide protection for those in need. Yellowcakeshop has manufactured over 15,000 + masks for Clevelanders and essential businesses alike.
Our mask is based off the highly tested Olson mask pattern. We developed and tested our mask with Case Western Reserve University’s think box to ascertain the highest effective quality.
It features an interior pocket for the wearer to insert their filter of choice. It is made from 100% cotton though some colors may only be available in cotton blends. All masks are machine washable and reusable. It features elastic ties on the sides to loop over the ear comfortably and easily. In the event your mask needs to be adjusted for size, threading a simple shoelace through the side channels works just as well for a quick and easy modification.
The design focuses on comfort and safety while still being sanitary. The masks feature a pocket for extra filtration and are safely launder-able.
Please note filter material is not included. If you would like to place a filter on the interior pocket of your mask we suggest the following:
1) HEPA filter material commonly used in vacuum bags
2) filter material from a furnace filter. Simply pull apart from the wiring and cardboard
3) clean unused swiffer sweeper dry cloths
Masks are machine washable best cleaned with cold or warm water. Air dry to reduce risk of shrinking. Wash as needed, interchange filters regularly for optimal effectiveness. Some organizations also recommend double stick tape at the chin or under the eyes at the cheeks for an added element of protection and a tighter seal in the event that a mask may not fit as snug as preferred.
Note: cloth masks are not a replacement for N95 masks. Nor are they medical grade. These masks can provide protection up to 85% efficacy when used with a proper filter. You can also utilize cloth masks to cover and prolong the life of your current N95 or NIOSH masks.
