With masks seemingly becoming the new normal, and people scrambling to procure them, we wanted to send out a simple template that you can use at home. All you need is a pair of scissors and an old tshirt. You can print out our template, but you could probably just eyeball it as well. The result is a simple, single use face mask, and a re-purposing of your old Tshirts.
According to the Washington Post, the Coronavirus is extremely small, and still able to pass through most fabrics. However, it’s most transmissible when stuck to larger water or mucus molecules that can leave a person’s mouth. So while this Tshirt mask is no where near perfect, it is somewhat effective. If everyone wore something that was somewhat effective, the R-naught (rate of infection) value of the pandemic would be slowed.
100% cotton is not ideal, so if you have a polyester cotton blend Tshirt, that would work best. For better results, cut out two masks and double them up. This template can also be applied to other household fabrics like pillowcases, tea towels, linens etc.
