Our masks are made to be reused again and again, which also means they are designed so that the ear elastics can be easily replaced.
If an elastic has become worn or over-stretched, it can be replaced with another piece of elastic, or even a strip of old t-shirt fabric! To thread the new elastic through the casing use a toothpick, skewer, chopstick, or a loop turner (a very affordable tool used by most sewers), tie a knot at the adjusted loop length, and hide the knot back in the casing.
To encourage folks to repair their garments, we are offering free elastic replacements ordered September 8-10, 2021. Request ear elastic replacement sets for up to 8 masks (must have ordered at least the same number of Selective HA masks in the past), and we will send them to you for free - you just cover the $1.50 shipping.
Repair don't replace!
