Mask quality levels:
Level 3 (All the masks we sell here)
My BFF Masks are at the top quality level for washable and reusable cloth mask, employing 3 layers to work for you.
My BFF Masks employ a layer of comfortable tight-weave cotton fabric against the face that is a rare textile to obtain and a top choice to control the COVID-19 spread. It has some stretch to it so it will form-fit to the face with adjustable ear elastic bands and includes a nose bridge sealing strip for a good seal.
My BFF Masks are pocket masks. We include 5 filtering inserts cut from of ToolBox brand shop towels that filter well and are very breathable.
My BFF Masks have a tight woven colorful cover layer to start the protection process, trapping large and medium size (larger than 5 microns) droplets.
All layers together still provide excellent breathability. Shining a flashlight or sunlight through this mask will show NO sparkles of light through it.
My BFF Masks also contain synthetic fibers that have anti-static properties which scientists have proven to be a great benefit.
Level 2 (white and grey only)
Medium level of washable and reusable cloth mask with only one layer that filters out small droplets and particles.
It employs one layer of cotton knit filtering fabric that does much better than most fabrics. It has stretch to it so it will form-fit to the face with adjustable ear elastic bands and includes a nose bridge sealing strip for a good seal.
Shining a flashlight or sunlight through this mask will show MINIMAL sparkles of direct light through it.
Level 1 (We DO NOT make or sell Level 1 masks)
This level filters out small droplets. Bandannas and masks made with some common household fabrics are in this category.
Each of possibly many layers of fabric may be easily breathable, but do not efficiently filter small particles. The face covering may not include the important nose bridge sealing strip for a good seal.
Shining a flashlight or sunlight through this mask will show many sparkles of direct light through it. This mask may provide legally acceptable face covering, but it will provide little protection.
This is the level of masks most commonly sold commercially as well as some hand-made masks and may do little to slow the pandemic spread.
Wearers of this level of mask are advised to pay special attention to social distancing.
