Pretty Frazz. I bought too many last year, there are two that are very comfortable that I wash’n’wear and they don’t steam up.I will save the rest for that Saved & Remade programme. Needless to say I had to buy masks for Mr FP as he wasn’t shelling out.
I find the disposable ones more comfortable too . At first, they rubbed behind my ears then we discovered ones that have a softer tape - it looks almost like wonderweb but is very light and doesn't irritate. After having to wear one 24 hours a day for a week when I was in hospital, I barely notice them now but I am dreading the summer. It was only 21c yesterday and the mask, while not uncomfortable in itself, made me feel hot.

That’s a good point cassandra. I can’t get on with disposable ones either Liv. I have noticed some people just discard them as litter in the car park when they have come out of the shop which is horrible.
I’ve got quite a few 3 layer cloth ones, but now prefer the disposable ones as I don’t get so hot in them. I twist the ties once before putting them on and they fit well. Without doing that, the mask used to poke me in the eye when I looked down. 😳
I dispose of them at home. For a quick visit to a shop it’s easier to dispose of them, rather than having to wash them which I used to do after a single wear.
The surgical ones I use are not uncomfortable as such, just fit so well it gets difficult to breath. I will probably still use them next winter for shopping, but needed something lighter and prettier for the summer.
I wish I could wear ones like that at work but we are not allowed. I've tried nylon ones and they were awful. I use the cotton ones now, so many different ones but they do make you sound muffled after a time.
