As someone on Facebook pointed out, if masks are so good, how come a Fart gets through a valve, a pair of pants, a pair of jeans etc, etc, and still gets right up your nose? :o :o :o

Malky, who still wears a mask when necessary, even after considering the above.  ::) ::) ::)

I think we should all wear masks in shops and on transport, in my opinion it is very selfish not to, if you think about it they are not on for long when shopping, I have discovered the best times to go shopping, most times almost in and out, BUT at the moment it is a choice but I will continue to do so, made quite a few so I can wash chop and change

As it is now law to wear a face covering here in Scotland I comply, but I am very concerned that Nicola Sturgeon is giving the wrong message to the population.
She seems to be saying if you wear a face covering you are protecting other if you have Covid-19 but that is not true, the truth is you may be providing others with limited protection or in some cases no protection at all.

I wear a mask in a shop, have made a few, one circular more fitted and others pleated, both are very easy to wear except they steam your specs up,  washing up liquid apparently helps on specs, more and more I see people going about with no masks, even shop staff whizz about with no mask, I would prefer if it had been compulsory  from the start

Dry soap has the same effect. Rub a bit on both sides of the lens and polish off with soft cloth.

Soap/detergent break down the surface tension of water, stops the misting on your specs.

You can also buy a spray from motorbike retailers - it's for going on visors of helmets.

Search for "anti-fog visor spray".

As well as the fairy liquid it is really important that the mask is high on the nose and that you pinch the metal strip to get a tight fit to stop your specs steaming up. It the shape of your lens allows it put the mask on first and put specs on top.
Good tip about the micro pore tape to seal, Iím going to give that a go.
I too work with glass as a hobby and had huge trouble with fogging when using the sand blaster.

The FFP3 masks recommended for glass work have a metal piece over the nose and are the top grade so shouldn't allow for any fogging, especially as the sandblaster is in a large glass container with arm holes. I don't use specs but haven't heard of fogging from using that from any colleagues who do  :-\

Theyíre the type I use and they are the best but I still get fogging. I just try to breath slowly when using the sand blaster. Iím definitely going to try the tape addition when ?? we get back to class.
