Starting Friday customers are required to wear a mask when entering any store.

Hoping this will make people take it more seriously.

Yaaaaaay! Although the one time I’ve been in a store in the last 3 weeks was Sunday and EVERYONE wore a mask, both employees and shoppers.

I don't have a mask. I tried to make one and it fell apart. I'll try again, but I wish I could get my hands on a real one.

homemade mask

My son used one of my fabric stretchy headbands while we wait for some masks I ordered. Not the best, but better than nothing.

And after he put it on, he put on some reading glasses because, he said, he "didn't want to look like some bad robber guy."

By the way, he's the only one going shopping now. I sit in the car and people watch because I have to get out of the house. Otherwise, I would be lock up for sistercide. Seriously. She is dancing on my last nerve.

My local grocery store requires gloves and a mask now. If you don't have, they give you (then you have to pay an extra dollar at check out). I think it's a smart policy.

Where are people supposed to get them if they don't have one? I don't have a mask, or a bandanna, or anything like that. I have no idea what I would use.

No sew mask

This does work. I made a couple of these until I was able to sew some. I used a bandana and rubber bands. If you donít have a bandana, find something to use that is 100% cotton.

Old t -shirts work well too. Find the one you were going to toss in the clothing drive and use it. You can cut one bandana size piece from the front and one from the back, and then use the directions in ZipLine's link.

Adding
Here's a great link from the Washington Post (free link, no subscription required) about masks. Lots of good information on material and making. And what not to use for filters.

Fashion scarves too

If you don't have a bandana, anything you can cut or fold to that size will work. I've seen bandanas (of course,) t-shirts, shop towels or large washcloths, fashion scarves, ski masks, winter scarves, and even one made from a sock.

My DH has a turtle neck cap for turkey hunting and used that.
