Frequently Asked Questions

Head over to our Mask FAQ page for detailed answers to many of the other questions customers have had. Topics include shipping, mask fit and related tips, filter specs, our mask donation efforts, and more.

When will kids masks start shipping?

We’re aiming to ship kids masks in mid to late May. Once you order, your card is charged immediately so that we can produce your mask kit. We'll keep you in the loop with shipping updates and send a tracking number as soon as your order ships. Please be patient—we are fulfilling thousands of mask donations simultaneously, and we're working as hard as we can to produce and ship these masks.

What age range does the kids mask fit?

The GIR kids mask is designed for kids ages 4-12. Using a clip (included in the kit), our founder Sam has been able to comfortably fit these on her 3-year-old daughter as well. If your child is under 3 or has any preexisting condition, check with your pediatrician first—most doctors don't recommend putting face masks on children 2 or younger.

Will the kids size mask fit adults with smaller heads?

The kids masks are quite small; if you have a tiny grownup face, they might work for you! But for best fit, you’ll want to ensure that it covers your chin completely. The standard mask is 6" W x 4.5" H (15.4cm L x 11.4cm H) and can be tightened behind your head using the included clip for a snug fit. The kids mask is 3.5" W x 3.8" H (8.8cm L x 9.5cm). It can be stretched quite a bit, but please measure your face carefully. Unfortunately, given the nature of this personal use item and the global pandemic environment, we're not able to offer refunds or accept exchanges or returns for masks—so we encourage you to measure carefully if you're buying a kids mask for grownup use!

How do I use the mask?

1. Insert a filter into the inside of your mask.
2. Pull the mask straps around your ears. If the mask fits too loosely, use the included clip to secure the mask behind your head instead.
3. A tight fit is a good fit. Check for excess airflow and tighten the mask as needed.
4. Replace the filter after each use; discard soiled filters.

Do I need to use a filter with this mask?

Definitely yes. Large holes in the silicone allow for easy breathing… and also let the bad stuff in. Using a filter is vital to the mask’s effectiveness. Each kit includes 5 for starters, and you can get 10-pack refills from us right here too.

What are the specifications of the filters GIR is using?

GIR’s masks are not medical devices. They are general-purpose masks.

Our filters are made from four layers of material: an outer spunbond nonwoven polypropylene layer to block initial large particles, dust, and liquid droplets. A double layer of very fine, electrostatically charged melt-blown nonwoven fabric to block finer dust particles, bacteria, and virus-carrying droplets, and an enclosing inner layer of spunbond polypropylene to block exhaled droplets.

Melt-blown fabrics are available in a variety of densities with different filtration efficacies. We require a >40g per square meter density for the double melt-blown fabric layer, which supports a PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency) over 95% at 0.3 microns and a BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency) over 99% for particles at 3.0 microns.

According to CDC guidance, SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus) is thought to spread through person-to-person contact and through respiratory droplets. Though the size of the individual virus particle is about 0.1 microns, respiratory droplets are many times that diameter. Therefore, filtration efficiencies measured at 0.3μm PFE and 3.0μm BFE may provide acceptable protection against the spread of COVID-19. This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA, and is intended as a general statement about filtration efficiencies rather than a statement of efficacy regarding any specific filter.

Furthermore, it is reasonable to assume that appropriately tested multi-layer nonwoven filters and non-permeable platinum silicone will provide superior protection to non-medical cloth mask barriers that the CDC is currently recommending for public settings.

GIR’s filters pass the following test standards, with specific results listed below:
YY/T 0969-2013: BFE 99.7% filter efficiency
GB/T 32610-2016: PFE 92.6% filter efficiency for 1 layer (we are using 2 electrostatic layers)
GB2626: >95% at 0.3 microns

All of that effectiveness of course depends on a good fit, which is why we are including a clip to fit the mask behind your head if the fit of the mask behind your ears isn’t enough.

This is a general-purpose mask and filter and provides general-purpose protection. Please use your best judgment for wear and care. We are not medical professionals. We are doing our best to interpret, with no claims to medical accuracy or efficacy, the test results provided by our materials suppliers. We are seeking FDA evaluation of our mask kit, and until otherwise stated only offer this product as a general-purpose mask, not a medical device.

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

When/where should this mask be worn?

For the duration of the pandemic, teams and individuals should endeavor to wear face coverings when in public spaces or while exposed to others. The CDC’s guidance encourages individuals to wear masks or face coverings in public settings like grocery stores; we’re all adapting to this as a society. Importantly, wearing a mask can prevent employees from unknowingly spreading disease if they are infected but asymptomatic. Read more here and reference the CDC’s latest guidance at their website here: https://www.cdc.gov/media/index.html

Can these be returned? Do they come with GIR’s Lifetime Guarantee?

These masks are personal use items and cannot be refunded, returned, or exchanged for any reason. Thanks for understanding!

How do we sanitize the mask, and how often should it be sanitized?

First, discard that dirty filter and wash your hands really well! We recommend sanitizing the silicone mask after public exposure, or whenever you take it off. You can clean it in a number of ways:
• Dishwasher: Wash on medium heat with mild detergent.
• Microwave: Microwave for 30 seconds in a bowl of water.
• Hand wash: Scrub with hot, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
• Oven: Place the mask in an oven-safe dish. Bake at 300°F (150°C) for 5 minutes.
• Autoclave: Where available, sterilize using an autoclave.
Dry well before inserting a new filter.

How many times can each filter be used?

Use each filter once, and discard when soiled. The filter is good for a full day under normal conditions (e.g. not in a smoke storm), but use your best judgment; if you think you’ve been exposed, be conservative and discard the filter. If you’ve taken a morning walk down a quiet street, you can probably use it again to go to the grocery store later.

Is this mask one size fits all?

One size fits most, with the straps behind your ears. We are also including a small plastic clip in the package so you can hook it behind your head for a tighter fit if you have a smaller head.
