If you can find one with a properly fitting pinchy bit that goes over the bridge of the nose it should help to reduce that problem.

I use a strip of Micropore tape across the top of the mask - there's an old Surgeon's trick for ya. Just prepare to wince when removing it :B

Yes, apparently all face masks have to programmed as to what date they are effective from and none of them will work on the 23rd July.

This was the reason there was a shortage of masks, the Government had bought them ready for winter but they specified they should only be operational from 5th November to 1st April.

Home and Bargain seem to have the cheapest masks at £9.99 for 50.
I don't know if they are in store or online only.

I'm not using disposable because as I say sick and disgusted at people who don't get rid of them properly and just more waste for this planet to absolve. I'd go with reusable cheaper and environmentally better.
You can get them online, cotton with pinchable nose wire I've just ordered one. I have same problem Mikeeb with foggy glasses.

Cools, does the pinch wire ones stop your gigs steaming up? I work on a building site and have used too many different types and It doesn’t matter which ones I use because it still happens. It looks like I will just have to put up with it. Ah well!

Wouldn't say it stops them completely but it helps , another tip wash your glasses with a bit of soap rinse and gently dry. That helps abit but as you say it's an ongoing problem . Glasses Bain of our lives eh!

I think this government just follow other countries, if it works elsewhere then we will do it, we have Gove and Johnson aka Laurel and Hardy (another fine mess) we have Patel on about immigration, denying work permits for NHS workers, yet presiding over an invasion of illegals by rubber boat, paddling pool and canoe, if we can't control that then we can't protect our fishing grounds, I think they just follow each other to see what will happen next, aka whackamole.

"Russian spies are targeting organisations trying to develop a coronavirus vaccine in the UK, US and Canada, security services have warned."

Every country in the whole world should be collaborating on this and not keeping their research a secret FFS. Also, a vaccine will be found a lot faster and the whole world can move on from this pandemic once and for all.
F##k all this secrecy and trying to make money off a cure.

Research costs a lot of money, research departments need a way to recoup their money.

It’s the one major field where there is no practical way to avoid monetisation.
