Pleated Face Masks by Chic Stitch
All fashion, some protection and better than nothing !

Studies suggest that the flu virus is spread in large droplets not small aerosolized droplets in which case you would need a N95 rated respirator to filter out the virus from the air you breathe.

Thus it can be concluded that any type of face mask can provide some protection from the flu virus entering your body through your mouth or nose.

The heat range to kill the flu virus on fabrics must be between 167 and 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
The air in a clothes dryer gets up to about 130 degrees Fahrenheit, hence the washing detergent is more likely to kill the flu virus or wash it down the drain then the dryer heat

Did you know that you increase your risk of catching a cold or flu if your mouth, nose and on your lips dry out? This is what inhaling dry winter air will do. Our face masks will help keep you hydrated by trapping moisture leaving your nose and mouth when you exhale. Then when you inhale, your mask warms and moistens the air.

The good news is, a hot iron can generate a temperature of upwards of 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, steam kills bacteria, such as e-coli and salmonella. Hence, hand wash your mask, because it’s gentler on the fabric then a clothes washer and dryer, then use a steam iron to press in those pleats while killing any germs that remain.
