DIY *NO SEW* FACE MASKS! (free and easy!)

Hey, guys! Today we are making DIY face masks. One option uses cotton pillowcase fabric as well as coffee filters. These are NOT a substitute for N-95 facemask, they only offer some protection. But some is better than none.

    I agree with some of your views. If you can buy a mask, I still choose to buy some, because it is better than the homemade masks in terms of comfort, breathability and filtration.i just got 2 packs of mask from,its good

    You know that such a mask can't filter out the virus right.

    I know this isn't quite a mask hack, but I often found when wearing my mask that my glasses would fog up everytime I exhaled breath. I stopped this by putting a drop of washing up liquid on each lens and wiped it around the surface of the lens using a glasses cloth, one that you usually get with your glasses. One drop per lens usually is enough for both sides of each lens. Bonus, your glasses come out clean as well!! I found that the anti-fog effect lasted at least 4 to 5 dayson my pair. Hope this helps someone 😁😁😁

    Just like all other DIY masks, protection is solely psychological.

    A week ago, the KN95 mask I bought on the ojomask website was just received yesterday. The quality is very good and the price is not expensive. When I want to go to a place with a large flow of people, I still choose a safer KN95 mask. This self-made mask may be better used in places with fewer people.

    Here is a DIY face mask, that is a little tougher, to make, but not hard. It is almost an N95 mask, using electrostatic polypropolene for the filter media. Here is the instructional video.

    Question. If the mask suctions each time you inhale, how can you even breathe that way, then? I cannot breathe with my mask tightly sealed, for very long, at all.

    So, when you inhale the air will follow the path of least resistance around the top of the filter just like the virus would do. All for the lack of a nose piece that conforms the top of the mask to your face. That doesn't pass muster here missy.

    insert 2 or 3 layers of bounty towels in the pillow case mask that will increase the masks effectiveness tremendously!!

    I wonder if you could breathe comfortably enough if you glued one of those coffee filters inside the cotton filter. It might move the needle up to 75%. This was my favorite video yet of the dozens I have seen, because this is the only one I can actually try to make. Thank you so much for putting this out.

    I have some suggestions for the first bandana before folding the mask put inside a large gallon ziplock back. First cut the ziplock off then cut it down both sides so it makes one strip place it inside in the center the fold it like she did in the video. I used hair ties but I found it wouldn't stay on my ears. On each side of the hair ties I attached a old shoelace on each side of the hairties then tied it to the back of my head above my ears. It stayed on and was a lot more comfortable

    I triple folded a bandanna, inserted a coffee filter, bunched it up a few inches in from the ends and wrapped twine around to create ties that I then tied behind my head. Don't knot the twine and it is easy to take off to launder the bandanna.
