The COVID-19 worldwide pandemic has made it mandatory to cover your airways with a protective mask. This protective measure is for both the wearer and the potential parties he or she would meet and be in proximity with. Close is now the operative word, as close now means 6 feet and beyond, where it formerly meant within inches of one another. Face masks are now a common accessory, much like tissue or lip balm. Everyone has one or two tucked away in a pocket, around the neck, or in a purse ready for deployment at the entrance of someone unknown.
Disposable face masks Canada is just like face coverings all over the world. They are made of fabricated materials layered on top of one another and strapped across our noses and mouths to stop the escape and/or entrance of droplets expelled from the mouth or nose from affecting us. These masks are equipped with a nose frame which is pliable so that it can fit tightly across the bridge of our noses and keeping a tight fit of the mask around our airways and face.
The fact that these masks are disposable ensures that we keep a clean mask against our faces as we must wear them for hours daily. This could easily become an additional cause of disease if we didn’t dispose of these used masks.
It is possible to wear these masks for more than one day, especially if you aren’t exposed to anyone and only wear it for a few minutes to a couple of hours a day. However, dispose of them after 24 hours of usage. Or if you have a cold or sinus infection and use it, it’s a good idea not to continue using the same mask two days in a row.
Some miserly people think that these masks can be laundered, but that is a no-no. Washing disposable masks cannot clean them as a cloth mask might be cleaned. Instead, washing will break down the fibers and if the disposable mask has been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, you can only spread it by laundering your mask. The best step is to simply throw it away and get a fresh new disposable mask to wear.
Disposable face masks Canada were made disposable for a reason. That was to pull all the bad elements from the environment into the fibers of the mask. Knowing that, don’t you want to throw that thing away.
