The trick is to have one in every pocket.
With face masks now mandatory on public transport and in places where social distancing isn’t possible, it’s more important than ever to ensure you have one with you at all times.
Now Aldi is coming to the rescue, with a new collection of fashionable face masks to keep shoppers covered.
The discount supermarket’s new range of 100% cotton and breathable reusable face masks will be landing in Cork stores on Thursday, July 30th priced at just €4.99 for a pack of three.
Made from machine washable (at 60°C) and reusable fabric, the Reusable Adult Face Coverings are double-layered “ensuring a safe and comfortable wear”. Perfect for popping in your glove compartment or handbag.
While the regulations on face coverings do not apply to children under the age of 13 (they won’t be compulsory in primary schools in September either), Aldi has kids’ sizes too if you decide to give one to your child.
“There is also a range of children’s face masks, which come in one size and two different sets, also on sale from 2nd August.” said a spokesperson for the brand.
