    Doesn't seem to be this article, but I remember seeing a rebuttal that included some input from a physicist with a background in respratory dispersion or some such relevant field, and their comment was, loosely translated into non-scientific speech, "yeah, I mean, it would actually fly against everything we know about material science for diffusion to be worse with some sort of barrier, however porus, than no barrier at all."

    Honestly, this is how science is supposed to work - someone tests something, other people try to replicate and test their hypotheses themselves. I saw the original study and found the results concerning, but also my immediate response was more science needed to be done.

    I've noticed that if I leave mine in the center console with some gum or mints, it takes on the smell of the gum/mints when I grab it to put it on.

    Left mine in the garage for a couple days... stank-breath/ motor oil/ pesticide blend.

    Robust flavor but would not recommend.

    FWIW, the Buff filter masks are actually pretty decent - I'm not really sold on the filters, they're fine once on but if you want to take a mask on and off repeatedly (say, a socially-distanced beer garden where you take it off at your table) the filter doesn't stay in place well. But, they xan be worn wirthout a filter, and while they don't meet medical protection criteria without one, they DO offer double-layer protection.
