It's 2020, which means the "new normal" includes PPE accessories sold by our favorite home brands. The latest to offer a pandemic-inspired product is cult-favorite Japanese retailer Yamazaki, which debuted a face mask dispenser today.
The sleek steel box, which comes in black and white, is designed to keep your face masks clean and organized. Simply pop open the top, load your masks in, and seal it up. You can pull out the fresh masks from an opening in the bottom, just like a paper towel dispenser. It's good for both disposable and reusable masks, though we think the former makes the most sense!
As for installing the dispenser, it can be wall mounted, magnet mounted, or it can stand alone on a surface, so you can really put it anywhere in your home or workplace.
Since we'll likely be wearing face masks for the foreseeable future — even after we develop a vaccine, it's probably going to take some time for it to roll out — this is probably a pretty savvy investment, especially if you have a large household!
The Yamazaki Face Mask Dispenser retails for $22 and can be purchased here.
