How to make a DIY N95 type face mask out of things that you can still buy. Can’t find masks anywhere in your local stores?

***UPDATED VERSION POSTED: https://youtu.be/grRqoHxPjaY ***Here is another option for your family. Thanks for watching.

Disclaimer: This is a DIY mask. I feel the need to post a disclaimer, based on so many comments. Guys, this is not a NIOSH certified N95 mask. This is my concept mask, based on the design of these types of masks. I can’t make you any promises about efficacy, other than looking at the basic science of particle filter size, the Coronovirus and available options. I think it’s fair to say that this is safer than nothing, and certainly safer than certain other types of masks, but for the purposes of YouTube, I feel that I have to say that you have to wear at your own risk.

*****Don’t forget that you may always seal the edges around your face with medical tape for a better seal . There is a difference between a pleated filter (what I used in this video) and a fiberglass filter (which would be very dangerous to put next to your face). Please make sure you are using a pleated Merv 13 filter.

I demonstrate that in my ‘How To Wear A Mask’ video:

♥ ABOUT THIS CHANNEL:
———————————————
Hello My Loves ♥ If you love DIY, you just found a new spot to hang out on YouTube. ♥

I’m Raphaela, and I’m the cheapest mom you will ever meet. Lol
(Ok, not the cheapest, but when I was going through my divorce, I had to seriously adjust the way that we lived).

That experience inspired me to figure out how to do everything for myself and my two children with little time and less money. I adopted a ‘Why pay for it ? I can do it or make it myself’ attitude.

I keep my DIY and How To projects affordable and easy to do and I always make sure that you have simple directions to follow and product links if you need them to recreate whatever I am working on. I love sharing my DIY and How To videos in the hopes that it helps you have a happier, more affordable life that you can be proud of creating.

New videos every other week on Wednesday at 1PM CST. Consider subscribing if my videos will add value to your life and join my family.
