How often do you change your mask? Are you reusing the same mask over a period of days or are you swapping them out more frequently.

Probably a better measure would be how many hours between washing or changing it.

When I haven’t gone to the office and wear it less than an hour a day it can happily go for a week.

Before and after a whole day in the office I wash it.

I take a new one daily. However I am not working in the office. I work at a friends place most days. Mask is for picking my son up from school and in case I need to go to the shops. I just grab one each day before I leave. I leave them in the car door though so at the end of each week i have a handful of masks to take inside for washing. It also serves as an emergency mask stash if I forget to take one when leaving home.

I also keep a spare one in my laptop bag.

Wash whichever cloth masks I've been wearing once a week - although I only wear them for a max. of about an hour a day, every two or three days, to pop up to the shop with.

I have only had to wear a mask 6 or seven times since Covid hit (I hardly ever go near other people or to populated places). I have worn the same main mask but with disposable masks underneath my main mask. I chuck the disposable ones after one use.

Going to be a different story when I am back in SA next week.

I have 4 masks which I rotate per use and then their filters on every 5th use. Everything is fully washable, but filters you need to replace at some stage.

If I have been to a friend or just to walk the dog, I will wear it again
Visit shops, then it is washed
We have 12 fresh masks on a tray near the door, so can pick one up.
