How cool is that so many local makers have jumped in the help with making masks for everyone!
We think its awesome.
At Sofs we too have focused our energy to filling the demand and here is a few things we have learned so far as we have been researching on the topic. For those of you who are curious about our masks you can find a wide selection on our ETSY boutique.
As well, our mask follow the government of Canada's recommendations. Please read more about that here.
WHAT KIND OF FILTER TO USE
It is very hard to speak on this subject as more research is being done all the time.
From what we know thus far, it does seem that many layers are better then just the one. This article seems to be a favortie resources when looking at what kind of material to use, however I cannot speak on the accuracy of their information.
HOW TO HELP ELIMINATE FOG IN GLASSES
SOAPY WATER: Mainly if you need to wear the mask for a shorter period of time washing your glasses in soapy water and letting them air dry will add a layer of film that will help with fog. This tecnique will only last for half hour so you will need to repeat.
USE PIPE-CLEANERS INSERTS: You can use a metal wire or pipe-cleaners to insert in the mask pocket and create a better form around your nose. We found that this combine with the other tricks mentionned here works best.
WEAR GRANNY STYLE: Another way that will help is to lower your glasses all the way to the tip of your nose.
