Don’t get us wrong, we love cloth masks. They’re durable, washable, and reusable. But depending on the style and how well they were made, they’re not always the most comfortable option for staying safe, especially in hot summer weather.
That’s when disposable, surgical-style masks really shine. With stretchy earloops, they’re designed to fit a variety of faces comfortably. Instead of absorbing moisture from your breath and feeling soggy and suffocating, the material is light enough to protect your mouth and nose without making too much contact. Plus, they have an adjustable nose clip, which keeps your glasses or sunglasses from fogging up.
The best part? When you’re done, no need to clean them. Just throw them away, easy peasy.
Use these disposables when your cloth masks are in the wash or when you’re being active outside to protect yourself and others. Keep the box by the front door to remind yourself to mask up before heading out. You can even put some in zip-top plastic baggies to keep them clean, then stash them in your purse or backpack, in your car, and at work so you’ll always be protected.
