This protective mask is made for people who are using a mask for brief periods to run errands. The elastic ear loops make the mask convenient to take on and off, but can be irritating if you have to wear the mask all day. The lining is flannel to reduce irritation. Alternatively, a two part cotton lining is available that allows for the insertion of your own disposable mask if you have those on hand but want to conserve them. Please indicate if this is what you want.
