TADO VITO Construction:
Tado Vito mask's middle/filter layer is made from Non-woven material (Polypropylene). We designed our masks in a way that does not require cutting or sewing the top (nose) and bottom (chin) parts of the filter. Normally these cuts and stitches are necessary to shape a 3D product. However in this case when stitching, the sewing machine's needle would puncture our filter right in the areas where we breathe and these tiny holes would potentially let more "nasties" to go through, making the mask less effective
We applied only necessary stitching to the areas of the mask that is not primarily/main breathing areas. These are non medical grade masks and not been medically or scientifically tested or proved. We can not guarantee it will 100% protect your health. However we tried our best to create a mask that has good filtration while still being breathable, fits to the face well and properly secures around the nose so there is no gaps through which airborne "nasties" can reach your nose or mouth
Use resealable bag provided, to keep your mask before or after use
Gentle hand wash 30°C
When washing try not to crush the aluminum nose strip. If it's been constantly bend it might break into 2 pieces. Always keep it in "U" shape. Never in "V" shape
Do not tumble dry, do not wring. After washing, mask has to be still quite wet. Lightly stretch the mask's fabric with your fingers to get rid of creases and shape the mask to it's original shape while it's still wet. Use mask's elastic bands to hang your mask. It has to dry naturally
Do not iron. Mask's middle layer/filter is made from non-woven material (Polypropylene). If heat is applied it will harden the filter which also most likely will stick to inner or outer layer of your mask and will damage your product.
We have tested different ways of washing and drying our masks and the best and most easy one is still a classic wash with a natural dry
To further protect the mask's components and extend it's lifetime when machine washing, it is good to place your mask with other laundry. By "sheltering" your mask in places like other clothes pockets, sleeves or bags it should protect the mask from direct contact with hard parts of washing machine. In this case the aluminium strip will be more secured and elastic bands won't get tangled or damaged
Fitting your mask:
Adjusting the nose strip: Before putting your mask on, shape the nose strip to create a “U” shape. Use you index finger and gently press the strip. If required, even out the creases by stretching the material.
Put on the mask and firmly press around your nose until mask properly fitted
Tighten the upper strap of the mask (above your ears). This will tighten the upper part of the mask and enable you to fit the mask appropriately
Adjust the lower strap (under your ears) and tighten it
This is a non medical grade face mask. We can not guarantee it will 100% protect your health. Please take extra care when using this mask and wear it properly. If you have concerns about your health or not sure how this mask will suit your personal situation please discuss it with your trusted medical professional. Wash it before use
