Our cloth face masks have a pocket for a filter. If you’ve tried to find them in stores or online, you know that mask filters can be hard to find and tend to be pricey.
Did you know that you should replace your filter (and wash your mask) each day that you wear it?
Fortunately, my handy hubby came up with a simple, inexpensive way to add a filter to a mask. It’s pretty smart, so I wanted to pass this idea along to you!
We are using unused vacuum bag liners to make mask filters. Turns out, we had a stack in the house already. Here’s how to do it.
Cut open the bag and lay it flat.
Cut into wide strips.
Cut strips into rectangles, and save for when you need them.
When ready to install, separate the filter lining from the paper by peeling it off.
It’s easier to install if you turn the mask inside out.
Simple as that! Remove and discard the filter before washing the mask.
We love our cotton fabric face masks, which were lovingly handmade by my daughter Kerrie. See her blog for her tutorial on how to make your own mask.
