As the Coronavirus pandemic spreads, you might want to be able to provide effective masks for yourself and your family. There are many tutorials on YouTube showing how to make masks from cloth using a sewing machine. But what if you don’t have a sewing machine handy, or you want a mask that is more effective at filtration than can be achieved with ordinary cloth or paper towels?

Here is a way to make an effective mask using common household materials in just a few minutes. You will need a wire coat hanger or similar pliable wire, tape, rubber bands and a paperclip to construct a mask frame that conforms very well to your face. Then you can use any type of cloth or paper that you have available that will work as the filter. In a pinch, several paper towels are a lot better than just breathing in an invisible droplet of spit and Coronavirus recently coughed out by a passerby.  ""
