    Homemade Mask

***PLEASE READ***

Extra tip for homemade face mask. Sow in a paper towel that won’t dissolve.

    Homemade Mask

I’m going with bandana and hair tie approach plus adding the n95 filter fabric layer as seen in video below. I was able to find the n95 filters from home depot.

    Homemade Mask patterns – suggested for Healthcare workers in need of masks

Here are videos, patterns for no-sew and sewn masks. Note that two seem to be suitable for healthcare workers (not as good as manufactured but acceptable) who otherwise don’t have masks. Of course, these are not “approved” by officialdom, but the doctor in the first video said, “Any mask is better than no mask.”

Pattern and video for close-fitting Olson mask, simple to sew with an inner filter pocket, developed and approved by a U.S. hospital.

    Homemade Mask

Cossack silver masks:

I spray my masks with silver dihydrogen citrate to leave a residual amount of silver both outside and inside the mask. Since SDC is non-toxic, I also apply it to my face and hands.
