Are fabric masks any good?

25 posts in this topic

I saw many people wear the fancy2 one.Some from designer and premium brand. I think it is reusable masks more cost-effective option in the long run but need to be cared properly for them to be effective. Im still prefer surgical facemask. How bout you guys?

i think they comes with disposable filters, so you have to change filter everytime you wear.

I heard some fabric mask are qualified to filter out the virus, but must find from the right sources like pharmacy la.agree to what you mention just now, i think fabric mask also eco-friendly and save cost in long run. Those really has tight budget still can use this as alternative,as long as we follow the SOP.

I thought is that we just need to wash it, I did not know that there are filters that we need to change it every time we wear it 

Then do we still need to wash the mask ??

As said above, check their quality (safety), did they complied to the requirement and get from trustable source (pharmacy)
If you really have no confidence on the fabric mask, then just continue with surgical mask because it is more complied to the safety guidelines.Maybe you can check Medicos brand. That one also 3PLY and from local brand,so no doubt on all material used.

Checked with watson online store, Vicras Medic fabric mask less than RM15 and can wash up to 30 times, so you can do calculation yourself, for me is it not expensive

If you really did not trust the fabric mask, then just continue with surgical mask as long as the surgical mask is complied to the safety to protect you from virus

again as i said if the mask is complied to the quality (can safe you from the virus) then it is good to go, dont just go for cheap and ignore the risk, and most important it is not only risking you own life also person near you, your family
