Ah ha, back again!

So I broke down and bought hosting for a year so the shopping cart works again and all. I'll use the opportunity to update the listings, etc. So please do share the site with your friends.


In the next few days I'm going to add some washable filters which I haven't seen anywhere else. They contain a layer of batting, 2 layers of non-woven interfacing and a top and bottom layer. Washing them increases their effectiveness, I've read (will find the link!), so you can use them instead of the disposable kind for protection for pocket masks you already own.


We just received a very promising mask from Harrisons, the Ultrarmour 7 Layer. Here's a video link to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HT5JnWuuy4 And here's where I bought ours: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Adult-7-Layer-Face-Mask-Breathable-Washable-and-Reusable-Protection-face-mask/293681443489?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=592491134354&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

We chose black, but the coloured ones are quite attractive.


What's good: My husband tried it on with his glasses and no fogging!

What's not as good: The fabric has a strong smell, which I'm guessing is due to the composition. I've washed it in hot water, but the smell lingers. It's not a deal breaker, unless you're really sensitive to chemical scents.

Aerosols and Their Role in the Spread

This new article is very compelling evidence about how the virus is spread, and aerosols are singled out as the main spreader, making the case for wearing a mask even more crucial. https://time.com/58
