Why Cloth Face Masks Are the Smart Option
Sunday, 03 January 2021

We are living in a world where taking good care of your health has never been as important as it is right now. With a pandemic spreading across the world and infecting large numbers of people, we are taking every precaution that we can to make sure that we stay safe. One of the things that health authorities are telling us to do is cover our faces properly whenever we are in public areas. To do that, we all need to buy face masks, that too in large quantities. However, if you have been to the store or decided to search online, you might have noticed that masks have become a rare commodity. You usually do not find the right one and if you do then it is being sold at ridiculous price.

However, there is one type of mask that has somehow survived the "pandemic effect" and it is still being sold for reasonable prices. The mask we are talking about is the cloth face mask and you can find them practically everywhere. Here are a few reasons why we think buying masks made of cloth might be a good idea.
 
 

They Are Reusable

 
One of the best things about masks made with cloth is that you can use them repeatedly. That is not the case for pretty much any other type of mask and that gives you an idea of how versatile they are. With the cost of masks going sky high, being able to use one mask for a long time means you do not have to allocate a significant part of your budget to it. All you need to do is wash your mask with soap and it could be ready for reuse.
 

Great for Socializing

 
One of the biggest concerns there are a lot of people have is the way a mask looks on your face. There is a fear factor attached to wearing a mask in public and a lot of people feel uncomfortable about being in or creating such an environment. It is the same as one would feel when they visit the hospital and see medical staff wearing masks. Cloth masks are highly customizable and make it a lot easier for people to wear them in social settings. You could even buy masks that have designs on them that are of your choosing. There is no denying the fact that it has certainly become a fashion accessory as well.
 

Value for Money

 
As mentioned earlier, one of the biggest problems with medical masks is that they are almost never available. Even if they are, you pay a fortune to get them and that is something that a lot of people do not want to go along with. Cloth masks provide a great alternative in this regard as you can buy them for an affordable price and reuse them as well, providing a great value for money in the end.
 

You Can Add Filters

 
As the pandemic has progressed, so has the performance that you get from face masks made of cloth. There are a lot of cloth masks available now that come with an opening in the middle where you can slide in generic filters for added protection. This makes their effectiveness rise to almost the same level as you would find in a surgical mask, maybe even better in some cases.
 

Conclusion

 
If you are facing a situation where getting your hands of good quality masks is simply not an option, we highly recommend that you look for cloth options. These are cheaper, easily accessible, and an all-round good investment. At the very least, they are better than going out with no mask at all in case medical masks run out.
