Three Layer Disposable Masks
Having disposable three layer disposable masks has become the new “thing” to do. One of the main issues facing the country is the spread of CoV-SARS-2, also known as COVID-19 or the coronavirus. We can do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by all making the humanitarian decision to wear a mask when we expect to be near others, especially vulnerable populations.
Bear in mind, these masks are not specifically designed to keep you safe from others. But, instead, masks are mostly working to keep everyone else safe from you. That being said, if you and those near you are wearing masks, and following the guidelines, then the rate of transmission for COVID-19 plummets nearly to zero.
You will keep seeing more and more of these three layer disposable masks, as the pandemic continues. It is never a bad idea to keep plenty these disposable masks around, even when the pandemic is over. Because they also help to protect you from pollutants and other debris.

How the three-layer disposable masks work:
The three layer disposable masks really do offer three layers of protection.
Layer one – The (typically) colored outer layer:
The outer layer, or the first layer blocks visible materials, like droplets and things you can easily see with the naked eye. These tend to be the most dangerous objects, usually containing the highest viral load. These are the things you really do not want inside your body, especially from an individual who is not part of your household.
Layer two – the interior fabric sheet:
The interior layer, or the second layer continues on to block harder to see foreign material, generally it picks up oils and smaller dust particles, as well as viral particles. You cannot usually see the things that cause this layer to change color as it collects debris.
Layer three – the external layer closest to your face:
This layer still helps protect you, but it is mostly designed to protect others from you, as well as keep you comfortable. Cotton is usually used, resulting in a softer, non-irritable layer than can rest on your face, if it needs to. It also soaks up fluids, oils and heat, keeping you dry and cooler. You’ll notice this layer becoming less effective, the longer you have to continually wear the same mask.
