What Material Is Best For A DIY Face Mask?
You can source your material from your local fabric store or up-cycle an old t-shirt, dish cloth of whatever you can find! Try to source material that is tightly woven to prevent small particles from breaking through. Researchers recommend either cotton, chiffon or silk.
Cut your material roughly 30cm x 30cm. This doesn’t have to be the exact size as you can cut it to your preference.
Lay your fabric out and fold it 3-4 times so that it is roughly 15cm deep.
Grab your two elastic bands and put them over the ends of the fabric, allowing about 15cm of material between the bands.
Grab one end and tuck in into the opening of the other end to make a loop.
Adjust the elastic bands to sit at the edges of the mask
Gently tug at the top and bottom edges to make the shape of the mask.
