Before you try that mask on in the store, think of how many other people put that on too. Yeah, gross huh?

I remember as a kid running from house to house with a rubber mask over my face, the sweat dripping down my cheeks and the constant smell of pressed rubber filling my nostrils. But I needed to forge ahead to get that candy.

A T.V. station 3 On Your Side in Mesa Arizona, did a little research with a variety of masks purchased at various stores and tons of bacteria was found on them.

Now I know as a parent when our kids were younger we would have been hard pressed to pick out a mask for them before they would try it on in the store that is half the fun. So I guess bring some hand sanitizer with you if they must try them on before you buy it. :)
