#diyfacemask #diynosewfacemask #nosewfacemask Using a bandana and two rubber bands, anyone can make a DIY no sew face mask very quickly and easily. Stay safe and healthy everyone! xoxo, Kristin
This mask is intended to reduce the spread of your own germs to others. It is not a replacement of a medical N95 mask.
If you cannot find bandanas or rubber bands, you can cut up a cotton bed sheet or tshirt to 22 in square and you could also use a hair tie. If your rubber band and/or hair tie do not fit comfortably over your ears, loop a ribbon through both of them and tie it behind your head.

Try tying a shoelace behind your head after looping it through both bands. It is way more comfortable than looping the bands behind your ears.

Make sure it's a cotton bandana. Polyester ones (like from dollar stores) are very hard to breathe through.

This is fantastic. People should use masks as possible as they can. If you do not have a medical mask, a cloth mask can protect you to some extent. The difference between wearing and not wearing is huge. I would share a NICE 3D ANIMATION video showing the difference, check the link below.

Awesome thanks for sharing. My grandson came to visit but left his mask in his moms car. Me, not thinking that we would go anywhere today, I realized later ... I needed to make a run to the store! So, we followed this tutorial and it worked great! TFS. Stay Safe & Be Blessed!

Love your video. It's probably the best explained of the several I have seen. I think I am going to try this folding technique today for work as I have tried other folding techniques too and am looking for something that is going to work well for wearing 8+ hours a day while at work in a store. The hair bands behind the ears work great for short-term wearing. However, if you have to wear it for 8 hours straight like I do because of work, those hair ties behind the ears get mighty painful. I've rigged up a makeshift headgear to use with this style of mask using the heavier hair bands for the bandanna part, and then the smaller ones as a strap, and then paracord to tie it. It makes wearing the mask for longer periods a little more comfortable. I also put a small coffee filter in it too (the cone kind). It's not 100% ideal, but it's better than trying to buy 6-7 reusable masks when you have that many bandannas in your hiking/outdoors/camping gear. Looking forward to this virus burning itself out.
David Dietrich
David Dietrich 26 days ago
Just a quick follow-up... Because these bandannas are 100% cotton, it would probably help to iron them first before you told the mask. The one I just made doesn't look as good because of wrinkles and creases. Ironing will make it easier to fold.

Love it, very simple. Since you’re folding it multiple times, material is thick enough you don’t need a filter.

Protip: it doesn't work with hair ties. They just fall off my ears! I guess it has to be rubber bands. :(

Wouldn’t it be more comfortable using elastic hair bands instead of rubber bands?
