Help! - My mask was not washed in 7 weeks

Post by Thinktank »

Today I just realized my life was at risk. The mask I bought seven weeks ago, which I wear
for between half hour to an hour a week - was never washed.

:panic:

That means hundreds of millions of coronavirus particles that are on the mask from the air in Walmart,
Superstore, and the Bay and 7-11 where I bought that lotto 6-49 ticket last week - could have endangered my life
because the mask was not washed. I also touched that mask after touching the door in all those stores.

So do I just throw it in the washing machine with other stuff like socks? Do I buy a new one?

Or what? Can someone phone Bonny, who knows all about the science of this pandemic - because she's a scientist
and ask her how often should masks be washed? And let me know - fast.

I won't do that ever again.

That disposable mask ^ has fibres. Not good if you breathe them into lungs.

:-X BSUDS!

Thinktank, just wash it in strong hot soapy water. Hang to dry. I'm sure you don't need Dr. Bonnie Henry, "Bon bon" to those who have a crush on her, to tell you that.

I say Don't Wash it.
But then again, I just invested in a coffin manufacturing company.

Isn't it like a frying pan? No need to wash it - just wipe it off and you're good to go.

If the mask stops me from spreading covid to everyone in Walmart then I'll have covid on the inside of my mask, which will poison myself - with covid.

If the mask stops other people in Walmart from spitting covid on me, then the outside of the mask
will have covid, and I will get covid by touching the outside of the mask, which I do - always - I touch my face ten times more than I would if I never wore a mask, and I touch my mask ten times more than I would if I never had a mask.

In one year, my mask was only washed once, and I never got covid from the inside or outside of the mask.

Do you think masks are the biggest scam ever?

I have ski gloves, which I bought at Lake Tahoe in 1996. In twenty five years my ski gloves were never washed.
Do you think they can kill me?

Could but maybe that's what made you sick:
Also, never use your teeth when taking your gloves off! You might as well lick a doorknob.

Which means that you already have covid. So be responsible and stay away from Walmart.
