Waterproof Your Mask, Naturally

Beeswax is an exceptional material for naturally waterproofing your cotton fabric mask. Beeswax works by being absorbed directly into the cotton fibers, making the material waterproof without clogging the fabric. This provides the best of both performance and protection, ideal for winter sorts, exercising outdoors, or taking a brisk walk in the snow or the damp winters of the Pacific Northwest.

Application Steps (See Pictures)

Step 1 - Select a Solid or Light-colored Mask

Start with a solid or light-colored fabric mask. We recommend one of our lightweight and breathable Active Masks.

Step 2 - Apply the Wax

Rub the cotton surface of the mask vigorously until coated. Start with a small area, then move on once you can see a whitish sheen coating the fabric. Apply extra to the seams and around the upper trim. Warm the beeswax block for 5-10 seconds first with a hair dryer for easier coating.

Step 3 - Treat with Heat

Using a hair dryer set to low, warm the mask. Move the dryer back and forth across the mask an inch or two away from the fabric. Continue until all of the whitish sheen from Step 2 has disappeared.

Step 4 - Inspect the Fabric

After treatment, the fabric should have a darker, warmer tone. The color of the mask should be uniform from top to bottom. To test that the cotton fibers are thoroughly prepared, run the mask ever-so-briefly under the faucet, shake it vigorously, then put it on and draw a few breaths. You should be able to breathe easily even if the mask appears wet. (Test it out by trying the same thing with a non-treated mask. You'll be amazed at the difference!)

Step 5 - Wash and Reapply

Wash your mask just like you would normally. If machine-washing, make sure to use a laundry bag so the wax doesn't rub against other garments. Re-apply again before use.

Surprisingly breathable
Gave this a try on a lark. It works really well. I like how the fabric gets a little stiffer, so it doesn't stick so much.
