DIY Face Mask Keeper Tutorial: Washable, Reusable Case / Holder Very Easy to Make!

As face masks have become a large part of our “new normal," you likely do not leave home without wearing one. But sometimes you need to take it off during the day, such as having a meal. 

The question is, where do you put your mask when it is removed from your face. Is your mask directly in your handbag or on the table? Or, does it rest under the chin, or hang off your ear like an earring?

Health care professionals are concerned about these habits that face masks are stored improperly. If there are viruses trapped on the outside of the mask, they might contaminate your belongings, your face, and the inside the mask. To avoid these risks, you need to be storing your face mask safely in a case when you need to take it off from the face temporarily.
