Sock it to me Baby!
Mrs. C thinks I am crazy, or maybe even a jerk. She always gets a bit antsy whenever I pick up a tool...even MY scissors. If come summer this whole thing has blown over I will be happy to admit I overreacted.
Until then, if I have to go to the store (and thank you very much to all those supermarket workers like my step-son for risking your health for others) I am wearing protection...no, not that protection, a mask.
One old sock, two rubber bands, a pair of MY scissors and bingo, protection. At my daughters suggestion I also paper-clipped a coffee filter for added protection.
Stay safe my friends, and wash your feckin hands!
I think you are very imaginative to come up with this mask! Hubby has been reading that it is now suggestive one wears a mask (not necessarily a health related one) while out and about. They here are suggesting bandannas to which he is wondering if that will make everyone look like robbers. I bet if one goes onto ETSY and searches covid 19 masks there will be masks available to purchase. Better safe than sorry right?ReplyDelete
That's a most scathingly brilliant idea! Remember not to touch your face, and WASH YOUR HANDS as soon as you get home. Again after you put away the groceries!ReplyDelete
Our old socks have holes in them, so they are not candidates for homemade masks. We don't drink coffee, so have no filters. Besides, I can never find a rubber band around here.
I decided a mask was essential so I ordered one. BUT as soon as it arrived I heard that they were not necessary. DUH! Sometimes I think I can't win!ReplyDelete
My wife found a procedure on-line for making masks from Crown Royal bags. . .ReplyDelete
The coffee filter is a nice adaptation.
It's weird to me that they are telling us to wear masks now when a few weeks ago, we were told a homemade or surgical mask would do no good.ReplyDelete
My DIL's mother in China told me to use Saran Wrap inside any cloth material for a mask. I don't know if I could breathe?
Very clever. Be sure to wash the mask after use as well as hands. If you are overreacting, I say better than getting sick.ReplyDelete
That might be the easiest one to make yet. Well done Joe. Looks like we will all be wearing masks soon. About time.ReplyDelete
I have been shopping for my elderly neighbours, both well into their 80s, and I don't think they really get the seriousness of what is going on. I wear my surgical gloves, leave the shopping bags on their doorstep and step right back for the required distance - and they look at me as if I'm mad! At least they're very grateful!ReplyDelete
Around My Kitchen Table
How are the rubber bands attached? Anyway, love the ingenuity--and the title. I think that's the first time Ive heard that since Laugh-In!ReplyDelete
The Okie version. Hubby and I are good at Okie versions of many things.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous day, Joe. 😎
That's why I can't find any coffee filters!ReplyDelete
Good idea and to think I snickered when my friends go grocery shopping in their brightly colored-printed gardening gloves.
Good job Joe!ReplyDelete
The point of a mask is more to remind you not to touch your face than anything else. If it does that for you, it is a success.ReplyDelete
I'm using my old "bank robber" bandanna.ReplyDelete
i wonder why you cannot use mask bought from market dear Joe ?ReplyDelete
here my kids and hubby using mask since all this started
i hope your step son is taking all necessary cautions while being active outdoors
