As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise across the country, it’s still just as important as ever to wear your mask when you’re in public. Even knowing that, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked outside just to run back into the house to grab my mask. But, this granny-approved hack makes forgetting your mask impossible.
Glasses chains have already been making a steady comeback and many have started to repurpose the chains as a mask holder.
When using a glasses chain as a mask holder, the goal isn’t to make it easier to take off in public—it should stay on when you’re out and about and you wouldn’t want to contaminate the inside by walking around with it exposed. (And be sure to wash it after every trip outside). But when you’re in your own space, a chain makes it much easier to keep your mask handy. Alison Freer wrote for The Strategist that getting a glasses chain for her mask was one of the best purchases she’s made in months.
