How do washable masks compare to disposable masks like FFP2 or surgical masks?
It is always a compromise between comfort and protection. Both comfort and protection are very important in face masks. Protection is highly dependent on particle filtration and the fit of the mask. Uncomfortable masks lead to non-compliance, meaning people wear them incorrectly or not at all. A perfect mask is one that best suits your personal comfort and protection preferences.
