I am trying to make face masks at home for myself and my family to protect us from the coronavirus. I have some cotton fabric lying around and I was wondering if it would be safe to use it for making the masks? I am not sure if it's the right fabric for masks or if it would be effective in filtering out the virus particles.
I am also concerned about the breathability and comfort of the fabric, as we would be wearing the masks for extended periods of time. I want to make sure that the masks are effective in protecting us while also being comfortable to wear.
Has anyone tried using cotton fabric for making masks? If yes, how effective is it in filtering out the virus particles? Is it comfortable to wear for extended periods of time? Any tips or advice on making masks with cotton fabric would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
