Searching for masks has been a frustration for all of us in these challenging COVID-19 times.
It is a new world where a mask is now an essential wardrobe accessory.
I have been shopping for a well-made washable mask for weeks, navigating eBay and retailers online.
The lightweight paper-thin dust masks found at my local hardware store would not be a long term solution given the quality and cost. A 10-pack of disposables is now $20. Adding $60+ per month to my budget is not an option.
And, the available alternatives, creations by local organizations and sewing clubs averaging $8-$15 each, are risky.
I gladly invested in one. But after only a few weeks and washes, the mask lost its shape and simply did not hold up for the task at hand.
The reality hit hard. Returning to the new normal would require not just one mask but an arsenal of masks for everyday wear.
Who could imagine an unrelated conversation on the safety and health benefits of a GREEN mattress would lead me to a fabulous find?
