Pipe cleaners for masks

Recommended Posts

I am making masks for high risk responders, nursing homes, etc.  I am running out of pipe cleaners to secure the mask over the nose.  Does anyone know where I can find some or would be willing to sell or donate some to me so I can continue?  Thanks.

Thanks for the hints.  I fear that paper clips would be too stiff and be uncomfortable to wear.  I'll check out the place in Ajijic, if they are open.  I appreciate all the suggestions and support.  Thanks.

My wife made my last mask with pipe cleaner for the nose and it made a huge difference. As a side note unless your using transparent fabric it shouldn't make a difference what the color is. The pipe cleaner is encased in the hem across the top.

What about the twist ties that have the metal wire inside like a bread twist tie sealer. I don’t know where you can get them but just a thought.
