    I need mask advice

    I've got a couple of washable masks, and a bunch of those paper temp masks, but I need something better. What I need should have the following:

    1) A string (or strings) which go around the head, not just the ears.
    2) Are cloth and washable
    3) Are adult size
    4) Have something which will fit around my thin, semi-prominent nose (like a metal bendable element), giving a good seal around my nose so my glasses don't fog up.

    Does such a mask exist?

    If your looking for something to filter the air you breath, just get a painters mask.

    3M, with p100 filter cartridges, filters 100% of over .3 micron particles. Filters particulates and chemicals. Highest available without attached air supply I believe. Also comfortable and long lasting.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    The Tekk 8210 N95 masks from 3M are pretty good. You might already have some in the garage (we did.)

    They seem washable but I haven't tried that. Usually wear it for less than an hour at a time every couple of days, often just for a few minutes.

    ^This. The N95s are good, if you can find them.

    And truth be told, I did just that, in my basement; I had a box left over from home improvement projects.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    There are 2.6 million covid cases in the United States (as of June 30), five months after Donald Trump said it was "totally under control," and that "it's gonna be just fine."

    My sis-in-law made few masks for me, enough to rotate through weekly wash cycle; not medical grade but sure keeps me from touching my face while going outside.
    Been using them for the last 2 months, washing them nearly twice a week.
