While we are primarily a clothing line, we have switched to KN95s in light of the emergency situation.
We have been working primarily with medical distribution companies as we wanted to support those on the front lines, but we have a few left from our last shipment.
These masks have an active status with the FDA and have a CE (Europe's version of the FDA) certificate.

Are these masks washable?
The masks are disposable.
For civil use - washing the masks and wearing them again is up to your individual discretion. If you notice the mask loosing integrity it might be time to grab the next fresh one.

How long can these masks be used?
Keep in mind, most face masks are intended to be used once and replaced as needed. Due to the limited supply, the CDC has a list of recommended reuse methods.
- Discard N95 respirators following use during aerosol generating procedures.
- Discard N95 respirators contaminated with blood, respiratory or nasal secretions, or other bodily fluids from patients.
- Discard N95 respirators following close contact with any patient co-infected with an infectious disease requiring contact precautions.
- Consider use of a cleanable face shield (preferred3) over an N95 respirator and/or other steps (e.g., masking patients, use of engineering controls), when feasible to reduce surface contamination of the respirator.
- Hang used respirators in a designated storage area or keep them in a clean, breathable container such as a paper bag between uses. To minimize potential cross-contamination, store respirators so that they do not touch each other and the person using the respirator is clearly identified. Storage containers should be disposed of or cleaned regularly.
- Clean hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after touching or adjusting the respirator (if necessary for comfort or to maintain fit).
- Avoid touching the inside of the respirator. If inadvertent contact is made with the inside of the respirator, discard the respirator and perform hand hygiene as described above.
- Use a pair of clean (non-sterile) gloves when donning a used N95 respirator and performing a user seal check. Discard gloves after the N95 respirator is donned and any adjustments are made to ensure the respirator is sitting comfortably on your face with a good seal.
How long you can reuse a mask for is something that is not specified by the CDC. Therefore, how long you reuse your mask depends on your personal comfort and a few other factors.
Please advise, the following is merely a suggestion for how long you can reuse different types of masks and not reviewed by any medical studies or evidence.
If you are frequently cleaning your mask, it will begin to deteriorate just like many other materials would and will affect how long you can use your mask.
Rather than an exact count for how many times a mask can be reused, we can provide a guideline.
If you notice any deterioration of your mask, it should be discarded. You should thoroughly inspect the mask after each use and cleaning. Pay special attention to how well the mask is fitting—if your mask straps begin to lose elasticity it will no longer cover your face effectively and should be discarded.
