I’ve been wearing my respirator for a while now and I put on a normal trifold mask because I need to do a lot of talking and I forgot how hard it is to get a seal on these things. I keep on adjusting it because I breathe and get a jet of air in my eye.
right? that’s the worst part imo
Have you tried putting a strip of medical tape (or a band-aid) over the top edge?
It’s still more annoying to seal than an elastomeric, but a lot less annoying than trying to seal a mask *without* tape.
