    Hi,
    I got some disposable masks and gives from Walgreens. I am using that whenever I go out. The disposable ones are little pricey. I got 50 pack for $38. I don't know if it's reasonable or pricey.
    I am planning to get some washable cloth masks. Did anyone buy online? I don't have sewing machine. So, I can't stitch it. I can try hand stitch. But I don't want to try that during pandemic.
    If anyone bought any good cloth masks, please share the link.
    Thank you.

    The disposable ones are re-usable. : ) At least, we re-use them.

    There are so many places you can buy. Etsy.com is a good place if you want to support small-business owners. All the big retailers like Old Navy are coming out with different kinds of cloth masks.

    I like the ones I bought on Etsy.

    We are given disposable masks at my workplace and instructed to reuse them as often as possible. If you want cloth masks nearly everyone is selling them now.

    Thank you.
    I have been going to multiple doctor visits and I didn't reuse them. I thrown it away.
    If you are reusing, how are you handling it? Like you sanitize after every use?

    @Rihana How do you reuse the disposable surgical masks?
    Did you apply sanitiser? I tried reusing. I just left it in the car dash board. And used it after few days. Used it only twice and thrown it away. I haven't used one disposable more than twice.
    Did you wipe or sanitize before re-using it ?
