To properly put on a face mask: Wash hands thoroughly. Take the mask and fold it in half lengthwise with the color side facing out. Unfold the mask and hold it by the ear loops with the colored side facing away from you. Place a loop around each ear. Press the nose wire on each side and mold it to your face. While holding the nose wire with one hand, pull the bottom of the mask to cover your mouth and chin. To properly remove a face mask: Wash hands thoroughly. Avoid touching the front of the mask. Hold both ear loops and gently lift and remove the mask and discard. Wash hands thoroughly again.
IMPORTANT: Please be advised that due to hygiene and sanitary reasons, Brilliance Air disposable face masks are non-exchangeable, non-returnable, and non-refundable.
The CDC recommends wearing a mask when in a public setting where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain such as grocery stores, doctor’s offices, and gas stations. While wearing a mask, even a three-ply disposable face mask may not prevent the spread of COVID-19, it does help to slow the spread. The fact that you may have COVID-19, not show symptoms yet but still able to spread the virus is a good reason to wear one while out in public. Our three-ply mask has fluid resistant outer layers in addition to the meltblown in the middle which offers great protection.
There are some three-ply face masks that look like a good quality one, however it could be missing the important meltblown layer which makes it thoroughly ineffective against germs and bacteria. To verify if you are using an efficient disposable face mask, you can do two things: Firstly, when you put on the mask properly, see if you can blow out a candle or small flame. If you can extinguish the flame then the mask does not stop the flow of air, meaning if you can blow air out, it can also leak inward just as easily. Second, cut the mask and open it to check if it has three layers, including the meltblown, which is white. The meltblown cannot burn. If you put a lighter to this layer and it catches fire, then it is not a meltblown fabric.
While some cloth masks work fairly well, there are some difference between them. In order for a cloth mask to perform well, they need to be made with a tightly woven material and should have at least two layers. In a report from Duke University in August 2020, it was found that a neck fleece and bandana type of face covering is actually worse. When talking while wearing these type of face coverings, it is shown that the largest droplets disperse into a multitude of smaller droplets. Since smaller particles tend to stay airborne longer that the larger droplets, the use of these masks are counterproductive. A good quality three-ply mask made of nonwoven materials work best for the public. The outer layer is fluid resistant to help prevent droplets from entering and leaving the mask and the middle meltblown actually filters the very small particles that get trapped within it. As mentioned previously, you should NOT be able to blow out a flame with a good quality three-ply face mask. Since it tends to trap germs and bacteria particles, it should be disposed of after using.
As mentioned above, a good nonwoven mask is a disposable, three-ply face mask with a fluid-resistant melt-blown layer. Most of the fashion masks made from washable cotton or sponge are reusable. They are mainly designed for air pollution or pollen allergy, but inadequate against viruses and bacteria. An ordinary two-ply hygiene mask made from fabric or nonwoven material is also disposable but lacks a melt-blown filter layer, so these face masks are also ineffective against haze, viruses, and bacteria. Obviously, the biggest difference between three-ply face masks and ordinary face masks is the melt-blown layer in the middle.
