Are your reusable face masks starting to go missing?
The sock monster has been around for years. You put two socks in the washer and only one comes back. We’ve gotten used to this mythical creature hanging around our laundry room, but these days we’ve got the face mask monster to deal with, too! 😲
With children returning to school and with many areas across the country implementing mandated mask requirements due to the coronavirus, we are finding that having one or two masks just isn’t cutting it anymore. But now with all these masks in our homes, it’s becoming easier and easier to lose them during the laundry process! And as we all know, reusable masks are not cheap to keep replacing!
Hip2Save reader, Anna, has come up with a unique solution to keep masks from getting lost in the laundry by placing an old Persil container on top of the washer to stash her family’s dirty masks! So simple, yet so practical! 🙌
“Now that my kids are back at school and wearing masks more often, I need a place for them to put their masks when the masks need to be washed. I do a load of laundry every night after dinner but if they throw them in the washer, they tend to get lost or accidentally put in the dryer.
With the upcycled Persil container my older daughter hand-lettered, I can put the masks in a lingerie bag and make sure the masks are put on the drying rack instead of the dryer by mistake.”
Thank you, Anna, for sharing this idea with us! What a fun and unique way to store dirty masks to help ensure you get them back and without any shrinking! So fun that your daughter wanted to help by creating the lettering on the container!
