Face Masks (COVID-19)

Post by Alan B » Thu Apr 02, 2020 10:14 am

The following info came from a Chinese friend of mine (they seem to know about these things).

Face masks can be re-used if treated as follows (this assuumes that they are not physically dirty):
Collect about half a dozen (not more) and put them in a bag. Place them in an oven (NOT Microwave) set to 60 Celcius (140F) for 30 minutes (not more). Wash hands!
When 'cooked' remove them and fold so that the exterior surface (blue) is inside. They will then be ready for re-use.

If you wear spectacles, it will necessary to use a de-misting spray on them since the mask will cause them to 'mist-up' from your breath.

I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer proof nor do I have to determine absence of proof because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Before using them as a face mask I assume.

Once upon a time wearing your underpants on your head was a sign of lunacy, but it may soon be the sign of responsible behaviour. :prof:

'Michigan Man Attacked Man Who Made Fun of His Thong Coronavirus Mask: Police'
A warrant is being sought for a 47-year-old Michigan man who allegedly attacked another man who mocked his coronavirus mask, police said. According to The Battle Creek Enquirer, the 57-year-old victim told police he was in his home on Monday evening when the suspect approached him wearing thong underwear over his face. The victim allegedly told the suspect that the makeshift mask looked like the thongs laying around his own home. The suspect left, only to return about 45 minutes later and hit the victim on the side of his head, police said. The two men allegedly wrestled before the victim fell to the floor and was kicked in the ribs. The newspaper reports that Battle Creek police have yet to find the suspect.

Too late, they are already being used to make emergency tents for the homeless.
