How to Make a Face Covering
Our talented designer Angela is here to show you two easy ways to make your own face covering.
The first is a no-sew method using hair ties and some cloth you have around the house. The second is geared toward those with a little more sewing experience. Whichever one you choose, you'll be secure in the knowledge that you're doing one more thing to help slow the spread of Covid-19.
How do you wear it?
Angela gives you a quick peek in the video, but the full CDC guidelines are as follows: Your cloth face covering should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face. It should be secured with ties or ear loops. It should include multiple layers of fabric, allow for breathing without restriction and be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape.
To remove it, they say that "individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing."
How do you wash it?
According to the CDC, a washing machine should suffice for proper cleanliness. Read their full article here.
It's important to remember that, even with an appropriate face covering, you should still maintain a six-foot distance between yourself and others when outside. Read the full CDC guidelines here. And keep watching to see how they're made.
