Hanes has come out with new USA-made cotton face masks.
Politics aside, a lot of businesses and venues require the public to wear reusable or disposable face mask to reduce the spread of COVID-19 during this pandemic. Those are the guidelines we must abide by at this time.
There are many brands making masks in the USA, and we’ve tried a couple. Some are better than others.
What caught my attention about these Hanes masks is that 1) they’re very inexpensive, and 2) they’re made in the USA by Hanes.
We’re having a blast over here, thinking about how hilarious it is to consider whether these are made out of Hanes underwear material. Triple-layered underwear material? Maybe they’re made from their t-shirt material? Something else?
Either way, you can buy a 5-pack for $12.96, which comes out to $2.59 per mask. Shipping is a flat $5, or free on orders over $49.
These masks have earloops on the side, and are universal one-size-fits-all sized. They are built with 3 layers of fabric, and are washable.
If you’re only buying this, the order total comes to $18 including shipping, plus tax. That’s still less than $4 per mask, which is a good price for a USA-made 3-layer cotton mask.
Update: It turns out these masks are not made in the United States as advertised on Zoro, but made in Vietnam.
One of the types of masks we’ve been wearing too closely resembles the underwear that company also makes. I’m really glad that isn’t true with these Hanes!! For the price, I’ll be ordering a pack.
Alternately, you can order a pack of 50 disposable flat medical-style face masks for $32 plus shipping.
