After every bi-weekly grocery store run, I encounter the same problem. I load up my car with groceries, slather on some hand sanitizer, take off my face mask, then get stuck wondering the best place to put it. Should I stick it in my purse? Toss it on the passenger seat? Both options carry the risk of misplacing my mask or contaminating other surfaces with lingering supermarket germs. I’ve also seen masks hanging from a rearview mirror, but that might block my view. Is there any truly safe, practical option that keeps your face mask at the ready for when you need it?
Enter: face mask chains, a new accessory designed to keep your mask conveniently strung around your neck when you take it off. Similar to those made for eyeglasses, the chains connect to the straps on each side of the mask and wrap around your neck like jewelry.
