Governments around the world have ordered shut-ins to protect individuals from the spread of the Coronavirus. Unfortunately, by the time many began to understand the seriousness of the virus, people were unknowingly infected, outside running essential errands like grocery shopping and picking up prescriptions. Now to protect the non-infected from catching it most Governments are requiring essential workers and customers to wear a mask. Masks are in such a shortage that even hospital essential workers are forced to recycle their masks.
We wanted to share a three minute, three items, NO SEW brilliant face mask, which is the second-best option next to an N-95 respirator. The CDC has created a web page explaining how to wear cloth face coverings.
Cloth face coverings should—
• fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
• be secured with ties or ear loops
• include multiple layers of fabric
• allow for breathing without restriction
• be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape.
So why not make one out of a reusable Powerizer's Ultra Plush Microfiber Cloth. Microfiber cloths do a great job replacing paper towel, floor pads and even mop heads. So many disposable masks will end up in landfills which is not a good thing for the environment.
After each use, drop the cloth in a soak bucket to ensure you are not bringing the virus in from the outside. To make a soak mix one (1) scoop of Powerizer; laundry detergent per one (1) gallon of hot water. Cloth face masks can be hand washed or machine washed. When your supply runs low hand wash them on the spot or throw them in the washing machine with hot water using two (2) scoops per load. We recommend you air dry them, so the fibers do not deplete in the dryer. To disinfect the cloth, place it in a bowl of water with one tablespoon of Powerizer. Run the microwave for five (5) minutes. The high heat will kill off any bacteria, germs, or viruses that may have become trapped in the fibers.
Microfiber cloths are super absorbent. The Powerizer Ultra Plush Microfiber cloth can absorb up to seven (7) times more liquid than their dry weight. When wet, the fibers lay flat and quickly rinse clean. When damp, they are great for scrubbing. When the fibers are dry, the magnetic charge attracts dust, so all it takes is one swipe. The split blend fibers allow them to dry a third of the time faster than cotton.
Powerizer's microfiber cloths can be used for microfiber face masks, they are sold in a six-pack so you can be sure to always have enough fresh cloths for protecting your loved ones. Read below to learn about how to create your own 3 Step, 3 Minute, NO SEW Mask.
