Where to Find Cute Kids and Adult Face Masks
Wearing a face mask has many benefits for both you and me. Studies have shown that it is our best defense is keeping COVID at bay. And while you may not want to wear one, more and more stories, both chain and small businesses, are requiring them to shop, eat or be in the store. If you live in Cleveland, it has been mandated in Cuyahoga County to wear them almost everywhere!!
While many of us are learning what a school day will look like for our kids this Fall, face masks will likely be a part of their daily uniform. So, they might as well look cute wearing them!! Below I’ve lists some local mask makers who have stepped up to the challenge making cute and comfortable face masks for kids and adults!! I’ve also listed some businesses outside of Cleveland because I really like them and I’ve gotten a few masks from them that I like!!
So, make sure you leave plenty of time for making, delivery, or shipping!!!
Local Mom with a background in Biomedical Engineering was on a quest to find a cloth mask that fit well and filters the virus. And she found a method that works and wants to share it with you!! Made of 2 layers of 100% tightly woven quilters cotton with a filter pocket! The filters (included in the mask) filter out 0.3 microns or larger, essentially the size of a water droplet plus a virus particle. The materials have been tested for a 96% filtration efficiency!
Masks come in the following sizes: XS (child), S (youth and teen) and M and L (adult) and are $18 each!
You can find these masks at the Shaker Square Farmers Market on Saturdays or you can check out her website HERE (under construction)!
