I am not a doctor nor any type of expert in the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) field, so I have been reticent to offer advice on what sort of filter to use. I can, however, tell you what type of material I use for filters in the masks I wear when I feel like I need added protection.
I use unscented baby wipes that I have dried in the sunshine!
The patterns will look like image below. Keep in mind that the top pattern should be 4.5 inches wide to be the correct size.
After you download the patterns, cut out the one that is the correct size for your mask and use it to cut a dried baby wipe to the correct size.
To put the filter into the masks, begin by opening the chin and nose flaps. Inside you will find 2 more flaps. Pull those back.
Insert the baby wipe filter and smooth as flat as possible.
While you're at it, maybe put a drop of essential oil on the filter (or on one of the internal flaps). Choose one that brings you peace or comfort. I choose Good Samaritan blend as it makes everyday smell like Christmas! Orange ginger is my close second. What will be yours? Lavender?
As always, if you purchased one of my masks and you have a question or concern, please feel free to contact me through our contact form or with the email address: info at wintercraft.com
Enjoy the glow of knowing you are protecting others and looking good!
