DIY Easy 5 Minute Face Mask
If you’re looking to quickly make a face mask from the comfort of your home, you’ve come to the right spot.
The material used in this project is Kimberly-Clark Wypall X80 Disposable Shop Towel material. This is a “hydroknit” material that is a fairly dense non-woven product that is used in commercial cleaning and shops. It is tough enough that it can be used several times and it does not fall apart when it is wet (which is why it makes for a good shop towel or cleaning wipe material). The material has enough stretch that the top loop stretches over the head nicely and the bottom tie straps do not break. It is an odd color and a tad rough against the face but this is a pandemic not a beauty pageant!
We bought a roll of 475 towels from Amazon for about $70. These are the larger size: 12.5″ x 13.4″ and the product number is Wypall 41055×80.
The goal was to create a mask that is easy and fast to make that does not require a lot of sewing skills or extra materials (for example, it is now difficult to find elastic or strap making materials).
