GIR Reusable Face Masks- the only mask I wear anymore!Posted: January 3, 2021
My GIR mask is now the only one I wear! They run a tad small and I ordered a medium, which fits me perfectly. BUT they run small!
All of you who follow my blog know that I very rarely endorse products. However I have to share this! We are 11 months in to the pandemic and I now have a fabulous collection of masks. But wearing glasses with them is tricky and so is he fact that every single mask has to be modified because my face and especially my nose is SO tiny. I wear children’s glasses and my nose width at the tip of my nose is only 1/2 an inch wide. I have long been a fan of GIR kitchen utensils. As a Chef and an environmentalist I do not use plastic and love the well designed silicone utensils.
And then when the epidemic started they added a mask to their repertoire. HOLY COW, it is perfect! The silicone seals the mask around my face, the ear straps are perfect and the cleaning is a cinch. Just wash with soap and hot water and you are set to go. All of my cloth masks are wearing out at this point, this solves that problem. My glasses do not fog up because no moist are is escaping EXCEPT through the vent in the front of the mask. That means I am breathing in and out completely filtered air!
The filters are great but are pricy, so I use my own charcoal masks with 2 non-woven paper filters.
