Mr. Pink’s is a sister company of our hospitality company, BANGTEL. For seven years, Bangtel has hosted and looked after guests in their curated vacation rentals. Our primary focus has always been design, function, practicality and our guest’s safety.
When there was a mask shortage, our family who is in healthcare expressed a need. We knew we had to do something.
Mr. Pink’s Three Layer with Filter Pocket is how we got started. There are three layers as advised by the CDC to provide the most protection. There is a filter pocket that allows you to regularly switch out your filter and wash.
Our Nightider and Happy Hour Canvas Series are made from a 100% Cotton Duck Canvas. The fabric has more structure and makes a house around the face that allows the wearer to breath easy. It is more durable and used often by essential workers in the construction and labor trades.
According to the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) website, “cloth face mask coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others”. This is because having layers of cloth and cotton between your face, the air you breathe and the others around you helps reduce transmission of droplets. While it is not 100% guaranteed to prevent infectious spread, it is effective to reduce chances of transmission.
Wearing a cloth face mask is more than just tying a knot. Johns Hopkins Medicine recommends following these steps when wearing a cloth face mask;
Wash or disinfect your hands prior to touching the mask.
Touch only the lanyard or elastic loops when you pick up your mask.
Fasten the mask to your head or ears, making sure the mask covers your nose, mouth and chin.
It is good practice to speak out loud before leaving your home, to ensure the mask remains in position while you move your mouth. This should help you avoid touching your mask later, after your hands have touched public surfaces.
When you are ready to remove your mask, first wash or disinfect your hands.
Remove the mask, being careful to only touch the lanyard or elastic loops.
Place the mask in a reusable, sealable plastic bag for future washing, or directly into the washing machine.
There are some simple ways to check if you are wearing a cloth face mask properly.
Hold it up to a light. If you can see the light through the fabric on the mask, you should consider adding a filter or getting a new mask.
Try to blow out a candle, match or lighter while wearing your mask. If you are unable to blow out a small candle in front of your face, then your mask is suitable. If you are able to easily blow out a candle, consider adding a filter or getting a new mask.
Washing a cloth face mask is just like washing your delicates. We advise to hand wash only to avoid fabric fraying and prolonging the life of your face mask. Treat the mask as you would any other delicate garment.
For the longest life of your mask, we recommend hand washing your face mask in warm or hot water with detergent or dish soap. After, lay your face mask flat to air dry.
Once the face mask is dry, you may iron your face mask on the Cotton or Polyester setting, whichever fabric content your mask fabric is. Make sure to double check your fabric content before ironing. You can always reach out to us to double check your fabric content. The information can also be found on our Mr. Pink’s website in the description of your face mask.
We have customers that have reported to regularly machine wash their face masks and tell us that works great. We advise not doing this, but understand if you need or want to. It is your mask and you can do what you want with it. We recommend putting the mask in a garment bag and washing on the delicate cycle on warm or hot.
We can not stand behind the quality or life of the mask, if you machine wash and the item starts to fray.
A cloth mask with a filter will suffice for hours of wear. Filters such as PM2.5MASK Activated Carbon Filterwill wear out over time depending on usage. For example, wearing your mask for eight hours per day on a daily basis will deteriorate the filter much quicker than if you wear the mask for only two hours a day. Ideally, you should wash your mask after every use to fully rid it of germs. It is best to have multiple masks so that you can be equipped with a mask while the other one is in the wash.
A common problem for people wearing glasses is that the lenses may fog up while wearing a face mask. Mr. Pink’s face masks are designed to be a tailored close fit around the nose and eyes allowing for a clear view while being completely covered. Some customers like the addition of a nosewire. For this, we offer a complimentary service to add on some of our masks. There may be an extra lead time for this addition.
