Make sure that the face mask tightly covers your mouth and nose by tightening the elastic cords behind your ears.

When taking off the face mask make sure you only touch the elastic cords, gently removing them from behind your ears. Wash your hands thoroughly and wash the face mask at 140.0 °F (60° C) after each use.

Are the face masks handmade?
Yes, all face masks with the Fancy Faces label are completely handmade in Europe. Because the Fancy Faces are handmade, none are exactly the same.
Why is there a pocket at the back of the Fancy Faces face masks?
In the compartment on the back of the Fancy Faces face masks you can place an extra protective layer/filter, for instance a piece of kitchen or toilet paper. However, this is not necessary as the face mask itself already consists of 3 layers of cotton.
Can the face masks be used by medical professionals?
Wearing a face mask does not make it impossible to contract a virus infection, but it does significantly reduce the chance of infection and specifically of infecting someone else. This also applies to non-medical, handmade cotton face masks as the Fancy Faces face masks and has been proven by scientific research (see Davies, Thompson, Giri, Kafatos, Walker, and Bennett, 2013). Note that the effectiveness of face masks is even higher when everyone is wearing a face mask. Hence, encourage people in your area to wear Fancy Faces face masks in the presence of others, in addition to keeping the 1.5-2.0 meters of social distance.
Is it impossible to contract a virus infection when I wear a mask?
The face masks of Fancy Faces are non-medical face masks and are intended for personal use. Because the face masks are not certified, they are not suitable for professionals in the medical sector.
