It’s difficult to articulate just how much COVID-19 has affected everyone’s life. Whether you or a loved one contracted coronavirus, have suffered financially from shutdowns or ‘just’ feel the emotional toll of isolation, it has been a tough, tough year. It would be remiss to talk about COVID-19 and not mention masks, which are mandatory in most states and counties across America and throughout the world.
I don’t think anyone enjoys wearing a mask — it’s more of a necessary evil that enables us to return to school, work or go to the grocery.
• Implement a best practice for your family, like a drop point for masks upon entering the home. Whitmor’s Mesh Wash Bag is a great option for containing masks because it can be tossed directly into the wash / dryer.
• You don’t have to hand wash masks or launder them alone. Toss them in with a regular load on the warmest appropriate setting.
• It’s best to dry masks in the machine vs. air-drying — the longer something stays wet the more prone it is to bacteria.
• Keep clean masks easily accessible. Find a common place to hang masks for easy grab’n go. Whitmor’s Clip & Drip Hanger is a great option, as it can hold up to 16 masks.
