Our cotton masks 100% shirt Cotton, 90% cotton with 10 % silk textile or T- shirt cotton. We suggest client use 2 layers of your own kitchen paper used inside as a filter and giving extra support with filtration efficiency (according to the suggestion of a Hong Kong doctor).

For the filter, our masks have pockets where your own kitchen paper can be inserted.

Usually, the front textile and lining textile have three layers for minimum protection and we would recommend that you fit the kitchen paper inside to prevent the oil and water effect and increase protection.

OUR REF from HK

Hong Kong doctor K Kwong developed this DIY reusable mask with changeable filter, everyone can make it at home if they have a bit of sewing experience; you can as well sew it by hand if you don’t have a sewing machine, just gonna take a little bit longer.

 

"The HK Mask is composesd of a cotton mask cover and a specialized filter. The cover can be reused after decontaminating it with hot water or with ironing, while the filter, utilizing nano technology, has to be changed at a recommended rate of once every four hours. standard tissue paper can also be used in lieu of the specialized filter if the filters are not available, and explained that using two tissue as filter along with the cotton cover can already achieve 70% of the effect of N95 masks, filtering 70% of 0.3 micrometer particles in the air."

In his research he found out two layers of regular tissue paper has 70% of the filtration efficiency of a N95 mask; it’s recommended to change the filter every 4 hours or so as it lose its effectiveness when it gets damp.

And of course, wearing glasses is also recommended to block some of the droplets.
The above method is of course not as effective as professional protection gears. You should decide for yourself if it’s worth it. To me the less droplets I receive, the less virus for my body to fight off.

For fashionistas, you can also use pretty fabrics.
