Make YOUR OWN Surgical Masks!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage~ Ginger Harper Real Estate Team 93383

Hello ActiveRainer,


It is possible to make your own surgical mask.  I understand tht hospitals are running out and that those of us that are getting them are causing real problems for those that really need them.

I have attached a You Tube Video that will show us how to make them.  Keep in mind that the mask does not protect us from flowing germs....but helps us in keeping our hands off of our face.


The best thing, as I understand, it to wash your hands a lot.


Be Safe and Stay Well.

Good morning Ginger. I am abroad now and while there are masks everywhere, the only ones that really work are no longer available. The people who should bewearing them are the ones affected.

Now I get it. All those people snatching up toilet paper just want to make their own masks

From what I understand, the masks aren't as important as keeping your hands washed (correctly) and away from our faces.  And to Debe Maxwell, CRS 's point, this is why my niece shared a photo of empty toilet paper shelves in her grocery store.

Morning Ginger.

I watched the video, very simple, but like Kathy Streib said, I wash my hands a lot. I also carry hand sanitizer
