Right now, what’s important and matters the most is our health as well as the health of our family. And since the world is currently battling against the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19, we must prioritize taking care of our health. For this reason, having a face mask is a must. It is pretty obvious that wherever you go, you will now always find someone wearing a face mask, not only because it is required EVERYWHERE but also because people are worried about the consequences of not wearing one. Furthermore, wearing a face mask doesn’t only protect you from others but it also protects others from you. In that case, you can find a lot of face masks sold in the market and even online, and that includes Amazon. So in this article, we listed down 10 handmade face masks that can protect you from COVID-19.

Main Different Types of Face Masks Used During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Homemade Cloth Masks

A homemade cloth face mask can filter out about 35% of small particles if they are two layers. However, the effectiveness of this type of face masks all depends on their construction. For example, densely woven cotton fabrics are the best choice, then single-layer fabric masks are of course less effective than double and triple layer masks.

Cloth Masks with Filter

During this time of the pandemic, specifically, now that we have the coronavirus aka COVID-19, you can find a lot of face masks with filters online and some of them are even handmade. If you have the skill, you can also make these by yourself. On the other hand, the best filter to use, according to experts, are filters with polypropylene material which is a durable synthetic fabric often used in upholstery. For this reason, it increases filtration efficiency from 35% to about 70%.

Disposable Surgical Masks

Meanwhile, surgical masks are usually the most recommended mask to wear because these types of masks filter out about 60% of smaller, inhaled particles. Remember that they are not designed to wear more than once. In short, dispose of the mask after wearing it.

N95 Masks

Among all the mentioned types of face masks, the n95 masks offer the most effective protection against the Coronavirus as well as other respiratory diseases. This is because these masks filter out 95% of small particles from the air breathed in.
