2020-03-11 06:19:06 UTC  

@Karnivore thank you, I should be ok. I got gloves, mask, I wore today when I went up. Just going when they are empty too.

2020-03-11 06:19:31 UTC  

@Amaria do you have a functioning oven at home?

2020-03-11 06:20:02 UTC  

@Deleted User it's very hard to get off it. Takes a long time n has to be done gradually

2020-03-11 06:21:04 UTC  

Actually my oven just broke, lol land lord is good about fixing things ..said he needs a part. It will be fixed soon bbn

2020-03-11 06:21:19 UTC  

Herion withdraw is less painful than methadone . My friend is considering going the suboxine route but not sure. He is almost 💯 dependent on that methadone

2020-03-11 06:21:44 UTC  

Suboxone works for some ppl

2020-03-11 06:21:56 UTC  

Sorry to say but it's mental

2020-03-11 06:22:00 UTC  

@Amaria do you use the paper-type of n95 masks?

2020-03-11 06:22:46 UTC  

@Karnivore yes paper ones

2020-03-11 06:23:22 UTC  

I did old school wafers

2020-03-11 06:23:54 UTC  

@Deleted User yes alot of it is mental in coming off. But some is physical. The doctor in clinic can help guide ppl off.

2020-03-11 06:24:07 UTC  

Never, NEVER touch the outside of your mask, after you put it on. Treat the outside as if it were completely tainted, because it is. Never wear the paper-type masks for more than 6-8 hours, and don't take it off in between. If you have limited number of masks, and can't simply throw them away after using them, then you will need to bake the paper-type masks in the oven for 30 minutes at 160 degrees, in order to disinfect them. Here is a short video discussing what to do and NEVER do to disinfect your mask:

2020-03-11 06:25:13 UTC  

If you try to reuse these paper-type masks without first disinfecting them, then it's most likely just as bad as not using one at all. (I am not a doctor, so research this on your own)

2020-03-11 06:25:13 UTC  

@Karnivore , Thank you for that information

2020-03-11 06:25:20 UTC  

You are very welcome.

2020-03-11 06:25:50 UTC  

Notice when he says to never get them wet with anything, including NOT putting any alcohol on them.

2020-03-11 06:26:26 UTC  

Put used facemask back in the box after use and resell them.

2020-03-11 06:26:29 UTC  

The reason is that the fibers will move and stretch, creating much larger holes than will stop anything.

2020-03-11 06:26:34 UTC  

Bite down and cleanse

2020-03-11 06:27:47 UTC  

@Karnivore oh ok, I'm glad you told me that. Cause I seen somewhere someone was talking about spraying them with peroxide

2020-03-11 06:28:29 UTC  

the n95 mask is capable of filtering down to 0.3 microns

2020-03-11 06:28:44 UTC  

The Covid-19 has been measured at 0.1 microns.

2020-03-11 06:28:52 UTC  

so, the virus alone will pass through

2020-03-11 06:29:15 UTC  

the good thing is that the virus will mostly be adhering on the surface of spittle, when sneezed out

2020-03-11 06:29:28 UTC  

so, your n95 mask will catch that spittle and filter it

2020-03-11 06:30:11 UTC  

but until you sterilize that mask by baking it at very low temp of 160 for 30 minutes, it's still got that virus clinging to the outside of the mask

2020-03-11 06:30:33 UTC  

I sure hope so, cause that's best I can get right now

2020-03-11 06:30:33 UTC  

if you set it down on your countertop or touch it, then you have just transferred the virus to yourself

2020-03-11 06:31:27 UTC  

So I should have a tray ready near my oven when I come in

2020-03-11 06:32:20 UTC  

Using a UV-C light would also work, but I'm not sure how long it would take for the UV to destroy the virus. (Don't use UV-A or UV-B, because they will blind you, damage your skin, and destroy the item that you are trying to sterilize)

2020-03-11 06:32:35 UTC  

@Amaria how old are you?And do you have any underlying problems?

2020-03-11 06:32:47 UTC  

precisely. I figured that I would just toss mine on a cookie sheet or a baking pan

2020-03-11 06:34:35 UTC  

Also, my other fear is, I must travel I am 53 years old, I have COPD. Ashma, I've been exposed to TB before ..had a few lesions on right lung from that, I previously had pneumonia 2 years ago. So yeah I have some medical issues

2020-03-11 06:34:39 UTC  

Hi use this on facemasks.

2020-03-11 06:35:04 UTC  

Oops my fear is I must travel by cab a few times per month

2020-03-11 06:37:01 UTC  

@Karnivore I was thinking of getting one of those lights , but I dont know much about it.. thanks for letting me know

2020-03-11 06:39:54 UTC  

@Amaria The UV-C light won't necessarily be easy to find right now, and certainly not cheap.

2020-03-11 06:40:23 UTC  

@Hennessy by applying that to your mask, you probably turned it from a 0.3 micron filter to a 1.3 micron filter.

2020-03-11 06:41:07 UTC  

the superhydrophobic coating will most likely allow the virus to pass even faster through the mask, into your nose

2020-03-11 06:41:57 UTC  

I was just looking at that repellant, pretty cool but yeah I'd be worried it would change the mask itself

2020-03-11 06:43:47 UTC  

But it's good to use it on everyday items like keys and car keys?
