Our High-quality Disposable ASTM Level 2 Medical MasksVS Other No-Brand Supermarket 10 Dollar Masks

Medical masks vs supermarket masks

Medical masks once used to be a rarity in public sight. However, the growing air pollution and nCoV-2019 pandemic entirely altered the situation. If you’re going to use a mask, you need to know which one suits your purpose the most. 

ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) has tested and categorized the different masks that are effective and safe for public use. As per this categorization, an ideal Level 2 medical mask should have these features:

  • Fluid Resistance: Level 2 medical masks show a moderate risk of fluid exposure. They can resist up to ~2 ml thick volume of synthetic blood at an s velocity of 120 mmHg.
  • Breathability: Level 2 masks have medium breathability and are comfortable under most circumstances.
  • Bacterial Filtration: Bacterial filtration of around 3 micrometers has a 98% possibility in Level 2 masks.
  • Particle Flirtation: PFE in Level 2 medical masks is 98% possible for as minuscule as ~ 0.1 microns.
  • Flammability: Flammability is the final parameter here. A standard Level 2 face mask exhibits normal time for flame spread and is safe for use in masks.

Once you’re aware of these indicators, let us show you how our high-quality disposable masks are the best Level 2 masks:

Elastic Earloops

One of the most common problems that mask wearers point out is that the back of their ear hurts when they’ve been wearing the mask for too long. Our masks have straps that are much more comfortable and won’t hurt even after hours of use.

Three Layers of Protection

The first layer in our mask is a thick one, followed by two thinner layers underneath. The three are finely woven together to avoid any openings or to suffocate you in any way. Ordinary drugstore or supermarket masks fail to achieve this precision.

Shape Retaining

When masks don’t comply with the shape of your face and particularly your nose, it’s an uneasy fit. We have designed our high-quality disposable masks to fit with the curvature of your face. Even if you take off your mask and put it back on, you won’t have to readjust it either.

We at Soothy Garden have developed this mask after all the necessary and advanced research. If all else has failed for you, we assure you that our high-quality disposable masks won’t disappoint!

Are You Wearing Your Masks Properly?

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen an increase in the number of people that are taking the necessary precautions. Currently, we’re in a potential second phase of the virus, and if people continue to neglect the new normal, the issues are going to continue. Among the easiest ways to contain the virus is to wear masks and wear masks right. 

While a lot of people are starting to wear masks, a great majority of them don’t seem to wear them correctly. There are tons of videos online showcasing people incorrectly wearing their masks. Whether it’s wearing masks halfway or cutting out holes in the masks, a lot of people are using incorrect techniques.

How to Properly Use a Disposable Mask

When you use disposable face masks, wear them once, and then throw them away. When you take them off, be sure to only touch the loops and avoid touching the fabric. When you’re throwing the masks away, be sure to cut off the loops. These loops can get stuck in the feet of birds and present a massive environmental problem. When you are finished removing the mask and severing the loops, wash your hands thoroughly.

How to Wear Masks Properly

Generally, a mask usually comes with instructions that dictate how to wear it properly and how to dispose the mask when the times come. However, in the absence of instructions, here are all the steps you need to follow to wear a mask properly.

  1. Before wearing the mask, clean hands with either soap and water or hand sanitizer.
  2. Inspect the mask to ensure that there aren’t any tears or holes on both sides of the mask.
  3. Identify which side of the mask represents the top and which is the bottom. On the top, users will see that there’s a bendable edge on the nose that allows users to mold the mask according to the shape.
  4. Secure the loops over your ears and press the nose strip down for a secure fit. Make sure the fabric covers your nose and mouth.
  5. While wearing a mask, do not touch the fabric with your hands.

There are different types of mask, and these are the instructions necessary for each type:

Ear Loops

These are the most common type of face masks that you will find. To wear them, hold the mask by the ear loops and place one around each ear.

Ties

More regularly seen in non-disposable masks, wear them properly by bringing the mask nose level, and secure the ties with a bow.

Bands

These masks typically feature two bands, one that you need to tie at the crown of your head and the other rests at the nape of your neck.

Remember, wear masks in public spaces and always keep them over your mouth and nose. Avoid touching the fabric, but if you must, make sure to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer immediately afterward to prevent the spread of the virus.

Wearing masks properly and following the social distancing guidelines are crucial for navigating through the second phase of the pandemic. It’s the best way to ensure your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
