Face masks are now an essential part of our daily wear. Storing masks in your car’s glove compartment is ideal, but it’s a hassle and quite dangerous if you are driving to your destination to fish one out. Use a tissue dispenser to store your face masks and you can place it at the pull out shades of your car to have easier access to them.
There are a lot of wonderful hacks from all over the internet to make our COVID-19 lockdown a little less boring. Who knows what the hack trends of 2022 would be?
