Using Underwear as Face Masks: Genius or Disgusting?
I don’t know about you, but if I find my way to Facebook video, I waste about an hour of my day being entertained. Puppy videos always lead me down a path of enjoyment. Then an hour later, I end up on a video like this “You will never wear your panties the same way AGAIN.”
I am all about life hacks. An easy way to do something, count me in. I keep a folder with various life hacks. The one I am about to introduce to you is probably the unique use of panties you have even seen.
Watch this video first!
Ok, now that you have watched this video from Justin Flom on Facebook. The best part is when the women asked where did he get the panties. His response was “from the panties store.” [Insert laughter here].
So, if you need a quick fix for a mask, here you go. Several people in the comment section of the video asked about the level of protection that panty masks will provide. So, I headed over to our friends at the Mayo Clinic for some tips.
There are tons of different masks, from cloth to surgical masks. The Mayo Clinic noted that “a cloth mask is intended to trap droplets that are released when the wearer talks, coughs or sneezes. Asking everyone to wear cloth masks can help reduce the spread of the virus by people who have COVID-19 but don't realize it.”
If you plan on repurposing panties (underwear) into facial masks, the Mayo Clinic advises that you include “multiple layers of fabric.” Don’t forget to wash your masks, wash your hands and practice social distancing.
