Do Note:

**This mask does not offer 100% protection from any bacteria/virus**, it is just a supplement.

More importantly, wash your hands regularly with soap and water and maintain good personal hygiene.

Dispose of the filter *properly*:

*****************************************************

These are the things that you will need to make the mask:
1. face mask template (see link above)
2. 100% cotton or linen (trimmed to 200mm by 400mm / 8″ x 16″)
for children/teenagers: we suggest 160mm (width) by 365mm (length) ( 6″ x 14″)
3. non-woven fabric for the filter (e.g. dry wipe)
4. 2 pieces of elastic band (18cm each / 7″ each)
5. twist tie (13cm / 5″)
6. tailor’s pencil
7. sewing pins
8. a pair of scissors
9. sewing machine
10. iron

*****************************************************

Why *non-woven* ?
“Surgical face masks are made with non-woven fabric, which has better bacteria filtration and air permeability while remaining less slippery than woven cloth.”
