weirdneighbour: SumoJeb: I leave them in the store parking lots so birds can use them for nest material.

That's funny, that is where I get my masks, they don't look dirty so all is good.


That seems like a risky thing, sure they're pretty common and relatively easy to spot, but wouldn't it be easier to just snatch them off the ground instead of raiding the bird nests?

Tr0mBoNe: I have about 20 cheap Haynes masks I use for work and 4-5 dressier masks. They all get washed regularly like the rest of my clothing. I think of them as underwear for my face.


That's why I prefer wearing women's masks.

Wash it? That would remove the skin oils. They help to provide a barrier against the virus. The oils fill in the pores of the cloth. Duh.

/S :)
