Make Your Own Homemade face mask

You can make your own homemade face mask by using a old t shirt which you don’t wear any more. The cloth face mask will cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.

Here is how you can make it:

Step one: Cut a straight line across the width of the T- shirt including back & front approximately 22cm from the bottom of the shirt.

Step two: From a point of 2cm below the top right hand corner of the fabric, make a 16cm horizontal cut through both sides of the fabric that is parallel to the top of the rectangle.

Step 3: Cut down towards the bottom of the fabric until you reach approximately 2cm above the bottom of the edge. From there make another 16cm cut that runs parallel to the bottom of the fabric to make a rectangle that can be thrown away.

Step 4: To make the ties, cut open the edge of the 2 long strips of fabric. Unfold the main piece of fabric and place over your mouth and nose. The 4 strips acts as ties to hold the cloth face mask in place and it should be tied behind the head and around the neck.
