My Mask

Since it’s basically impossible to find an actual face mask anywhere, I decided to do some research on making one this morning. So here it is! Exciting, eh? I cut up a shirt I no longer wear to the specs in the article and added a coffee filtre inside of the shirt material. I used a stapler to secure the mask to the rubber bands, bingo! It isn’t pretty but it will work.

Yeah, I’m not too pretty, no wisecracks OK! πŸ˜…

  1. This is great job dear John, stay ,n free… in here they don’t let people outside without mask!!!! In everywhere you have to wear mask… you seem sympathetic… πŸ™‚ Thanks and Love, nia

    • I am sympathetic to those who suffer with the virus, and those who suffer otherwise, Nia. Thank you, stay safe my friend. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ

  2. We were fortunate to have a box of dry wall sanding masks on hand Rick uses when he burns brush (or we need to do fine sanding). I don’t know if you can still get those anywhere, but they fit tightly and can be reused (they will have to be, we didn’t have many).

  3. “Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges!” You would make a great bandit.

  4. I did the same thing! Regions of the world where masks are culturally accepted fared better than in the West where masks were, initially, not even recommended. Masks, in combination with social distancing, might have staved off the more restrictive lockdown which forced us to stay inside.

    • It’s not too difficult to make is it. Masks are not so acceptable here compared to Asian countries it seems.
