Well, part of us-all being One Pocket players is having an imagination, and working with the situation left to us...so...since I don't have a face mask, I made a half-ass homemade one this afternoon - out of an old hoodie o_O :oops: ;)(y)...

It's simple...you just cut the hood out of an old hoodie - turn it around, and cut eye holes into that backside of it, giving it kind of a hockey mask look...slips right over your head easy-peasy...

Maybe I'll take a pic of me wearing it and post it up 👻

We use dust masks for kitchen renovations all the time, so I checked our supplies. In my shop I found one box of originally 100 of the coveted n95 spec, but now has only a couple maskes left in it lol. I did find one high end disposable mask also, ( about $14/each) that was left over from the last renovation. I had switched our guys to the expensive masks on that job because the dust was extra nasty. Those I only bought a few at a time so there was not like a 100 pack with half left over lol. And on that job apparently we pretty much used up the standard masks before we switched. No extra stock here! I might have half a box of 100 nitrile gloves though :):)

Yea, same thing. I didnt stock up on the real good ones that dont fog up my glasses so I only got one left. Along with the valve they have a little extra foam rubber piece on the adjustable nose area that folds out above the mask and you can sit your glasses on that piece which helps it seal the nose better. And of course you cant buy them..
I do have 8 more left of a different brand but they dont fit quite as good. We been using them for store runs..

There are a couple of good videos on You Tube of how to clean the masks and reuse.
