Grammar question - using the word "that" more than once in a sentence

Reply Mon 6 Nov, 2017 03:58 am
Is the following question grammatically correct?

"A mask is something that you wear that covers your face."

It seems wrong to me. I don't think "that" should be used more than once in this sentence, but I can't explain why. The first "that" seems unnecessary but acceptable, while the second "that" seems flat-out incorrect. Am I right or wrong? Please explain. Thanks in advance!

You don't need the first "that"

If you must leave it, then delete the last "that" and say "to cover"

I believe that the second "that" should be "which".
