Mask-wearing has been a way of life for more than a year, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently relaxed its guidelines for wearing masks outdoors. Now, people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer need to wear a mask outdoors, except in certain crowded situations and venues.
If you're out and about a lot, that means you may be taking your mask on and off more than you have in the past. And, while you could simply toss your mask in your bag or back pocket and hope it doesn't fall victim to lint and other gunk, that's rolling the dice. That's where a mask storage case comes in.
A mask storage case is a sanitary way to protect your mask and keep it safe from whatever <gestures broadly> might be lurking in your bag or pockets. There's one in particular that's earned an army of fans at Amazon: It's called the Ananko Mask Storage Case, and it's just $11 — while supplies last.
The mask storage case — which comes in white or blue — is made from food-grade plastic that keeps out just about everything. It's also totally waterproof, so you don't have to stress about your masks getting ruined if it gets wet. And oh yeah: The case can hold up to three masks, allowing you to carry a few backups. You can even stuff your keys inside.
Another five-star reviewer says the case actually fits up to five masks when they're folded in half. "It is slim and fits in my purse very easily and doesn't take up a lot of space," they said.
One user says they leave the case "full and in my purse" so they're never caught without one. "Looks like I just put the masks in there yet they’ve been there for weeks," they wrote.
These cases have been selling fast, and why not — plenty of people need one right now. If you want to protect your masks in the future, act now before they sell out.
