It is being highly recommended to wear facial coverings, such as masks, in public settings. But with all the different kinds of masks out there, which one you should choose?
Most of you are opting for surgical masks thinking it eliminates the possibility of catching the virus. But truth be told, these surgical masks are reasoned for use and throw, and since it has only one filtration layer, it doesn't rule out the possibility of protection from the virus. It is here when washable and reusable masks come in the picture.
For all everyone, except for the medical experts, a washable and reusable face mask will provide enough coverage to follow the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommendations. There must be several questions popping your mind, and we are here to tell you all the reasons why reusable masks are best for you.
Reusable face mask lasts longer
With a disposable mask, people are often readjusting the mask. Given that the outside of every disposable mask should be considered 'dirty', as it is most likely to get contaminated. While adjusting your disposable mask, people are transferring pathogens from the surfaces they touch to their faces, mouths, and noses. That's why the CDC advises that people should constantly wash their hands and avoid touching their faces.
But with ECO AIRMASK comes five layers including three filtration layers. The mask can be easily taken on and off without directly touching the filters. Thus protecting you at all cost from the viruses and bacterias.
