Masks are Like Knickers

It’s been said before – but it’s true.

We’re all getting used to wearing masks these days, but for them to be effective they have to be worn properly – just like knickers.

Here’s my handy guide to wearing masks (and knickers…)

  • Don’t go out in public without them.
  • Change them every day
  • Wash them regularly
  • If you’re wearing disposable ones, dispose of them discreetly – in a bin
  • Make sure they’re not too loose or too tight
  • Don’t wear them on your chin
  • Don’t dangle them from one ear
  • Don’t leave bits of your anatomy hanging out
  • Don’t leave used ones lying around
  • Don’t share them with a friend
  • Don’t drop them in the street
  • Only remove them in private

The big difference between masks and knickers is that you take your mask off when you eat…

If you’re unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, you have my deepest sympathy. I hate having to wear a mask, but not being able to wear one must be worse – I know I would feel very vulnerable, and trying to maintain a 2-metre distance from everyone must be a nightmare.
