But how do you know if your fabric mask is the right one.
It’s very simple, just do a check list for your fabric mask, it does not matter if you bought one from the market of stitched one at home.
Fabric mask should:
Fit tightly but comfortably against the side of your face
Must be safely secured with strings or ear loops
Always include multiple layers of fabrics for filtration.
Breathing should be comfortable without any difficulty.
You should be able to be wash the fabric mask without damaging them or distorting its shape
While removing your face mask, make sure you do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth. Wash your hands after removing your face mask. Make sure to wash and dry your masks regularly. Ideally it should be everyday to be safe.
