Finding ways to store your face mask isn’t probably something you’d have anticipated for 2020, but in these unprecedented times, it’s now a common way to stay organized.

The CDC says face masks are a crucial tool for slowing the spread of COVID-19, with a growing number of states making it mandatory for people to wear masks in public. Between uses, the CDC recommends storing your face mask in a clean sealable paper bag or breathable container. There are a range of handy drawer organizers and compact bins you can use to keep your masks orderly. When using these storage methods, it’s best to fold the corners of your face mask together to prevent the inner cloth from making contact with any potential surface contaminants.

You can also hang masks on hooks in your bedroom or entryway, so you can easily grab them and go. And when venturing outside, avoid rummaging through your bag to find your mask with handy items like pocket-sized pouches, slim plastic storage cases and eyeglass chains that double as mask holders.

Remember, as tempting as it may be to reuse your cloth mask multiple times without cleaning it, the CDC recommends washing it after each use.

Here, find 16 clever items that are perfect for storing your face masks. And for those concerned about aesthetics, no need to worry — all the options included are design-friendly to seamlessly blend in with your decor.
