MrNoBody, thanks, I needed to restock because our box of 10 was running out. We switched from cloth to KN95 this past week, skipping over the surgical style masks which were recently recommended by the feds over cloth.

I've been using these KN95 masks a lot recently since my county is up to 3% positive infection rate as of today. It's a nice firm fit with comfortable ear loops. I feel the mask sucking in and out with my breathing. Whenever I'm in public indoors. Running errands in a store, supermarket, Target, Costco, etc. I use the KN95 masks.

I use the surgical style masks for outdoor things. Pumping gas, dropping kid off at school, walking exercise, curbside pickup, etc.

Once these masks hit a certain price point, they really are a no brainer to use and discard like a tissue. No need to pause for that second about whether or not the situation is "KN95 worthy".

I've been to too many funerals cemetery burials this past year. Please wear a mask. Even when most everyone else is not wearing a mask and you feel uncomfortable wearing one because you're in the minority. And you think everyone is looking at you. F-em. I hope I bought too many masks. I hope the pandemic will be over before I use them all. I hope I overbought and the masks will sit in the closet gathering dust for years.

I'm also in. Need these to augment my 3M N95 that I try to save for the most risky situations. I only use that one at most once every few weeks, but we are now in the hand basket....

Me too. I've been using cloth masks or the 3-layer surgical type. Will be interesting to see how these compare. Thanks for posting.

Although listed as 'disposable', is anybody washing and reusing these?

LOL, I was just thinking that as I clicked your reply.

Thank you.

I re-use even the cheapest of masks unless they break or get dirty or smell. The last reason is mostly why I discard them. Why throw them away unless you venture into a high risk environment? With the caveat that if that is necessary, I'm probably going for my N95.

FWIW, when researching masks at the start of the pandemic, I remember reading that what breaks down in the mask is the blown layer's density and also its ability to attract molecules. These properties break down from humidity and temperature, which occurs from the exposure to one's breath. IIRC, these "disposable" masks are designed not to break down for an 8 - 12 hour shift. After exposure to the heat and humidity of breath for that time period, reductions in effectiveness occur. This is not my area of expertise, so take it with a grain of salt.



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

I’m in for one. If I like them, I may switch away from surgical masks entirely (at this price, anyway). Thanks for posting!

There is a protocol of rotating masks. After you wear one, set it aside for 72 hours. The viruses don't last that long on mask material.

Grain of salt added, but as many of us (meaning me) wouldn't be wearing a mask for anywhere near that amount of time in a single instance, putting it in a rotation as jonny mentioned above, would seem to be a reasonable practice.

Two boxes of these are on their way.

I have four boxes of another surgical type that were mentioned here.

I also have four Smart Pro (?) masks.

As I tend to shelter in place a lot, these should do for awhile.

We got a set with the original post and wore them yesterday for the first time when we were going to be relatively close to people getting a new cell plan and buying iPhone 12 mini's (they're great--yeah!). They are noticeably harder to breath in. I suppose that's a good thing if you're going to be close but I did get a bit light-headed once or twice. Also, they fog our glasses much more than do the surgical masks. I got some no-fog wipes that work very well for several hours at a time. We'll continue to use them when we know we'll be close to people and the regular surgical masks for generally being out and about.

I don't have a fat or large head but I do have a beard. I got some KN95 masks from a different seller and they don't fit well at all. The ear loops are really tight and pull my ears forward, the mask is too short (chin to nose) and if I open my mouth it tends to pull it down on my nose. But the real problem is the tightness of the ear loops undoes the bend of the nose piece so my glasses fog up.

I might try an order of these to see if the fit is different.
