Best surgical masks

When you are infected with a virus or bacteria it is best to wear a mask to prevent further infection for others. Or, as care giver or doctor, protect yourself to prevent infection.

With the corona-crisis raging, surgical masks are sold out all over the world.

People are posting many creative and inventive ways to coop with the lack of masks.

Just a few examples:

Some even propose solutions with toilet paper. Forget it. It does not work and is even dangerous.

Here comes mine.

How to make a surgical mask

All you need is a bath towel, some elastics and eventually a stapler.

  • The bath towel should reach from one ear to the other and cover your face from under your eyes, to under your chin . 
  • The elastics should be strong. When making your string, make sure it is not too thight . You will need between 4 to 5 elastics for the string and 2 extra elastics to tie the edges of the towel . 
  • Use a stapler to lock your edges. If you have none, you can use 2 extra elastics to tie the edges of your towel.

Adjust the towel to your own face or that of your kids: from one ear to the other and from under your eyes to under your skin.

Once you have a towel that fits your face,  fold it properly and tie its ends together.

Folding your towel is essential.

You need three folds!
And your begin and end flaps need to face up.
This is essential!!

Once folded, you need to tie the ends with a stapler or elastics.

Make your string with several elastics and tie them together as shown in the image.

How to tie your elastics

Depending of your head, you will need more or less tied elastics.

The average is between 4 and 6 elastics for adults. Just make sure to add 2 extra elastics to tie the ends.

Once done, your string looks like this:

Once your towel is folded and tied and once you have your string, it is time to tie them together.

Tie one end of your string at one end of the towel and the other end at the other.
It looks like this:

Towel and string tied together

Notice the fold of the towel.
It will unfold when putting it on your face
