Note – This mask is not intended to replace a N95 mask. It will not protect you at the same level, but it is better than nothing.
FILTER INFO – Every 3 days there is a new opinion on the best filter material for homemade masks. Please use what you have on hand, what is convenient, and makes you feel safe.
ADULT MASK – Cut a 5 inch square of filter material for your mask
If the filter material is washable (like flannel fabric) – wash the filter in the mask.
If the filter material is NOT washable (like paper towel) – remove the filter before washing and throw it away.
