Learn the simple steps to make a quick, DIY no sew face mask using the dense fabric of a Norwex window cloth.
Never in a million years did I dream that one day I would do a DIY craft tutorial for a face mask here on the blog! But, like many of the rest of you, I found myself needing to make one today. I was thrilled to discover this quick and simple method!
This method can be used with any type of fabric. However, as I’ve mentioned before, I personally use Norwex cloths and products in my own home on a daily basis. I’ve been using them for years and am thrilled with the results. Not only do they make cleaning tasks quicker, easier, and less expensive, they have given me the opportunity to eliminate harmful chemicals from my home!
Disclosure: I am a Norwex Independent Consultant.
The other day, I heard the CDC’s recommendation of wearing a cloth face covering in public settings in light of the current world situation. (You can read CDC’s full article regarding homemade cloth face coverings here.)
Just hours later, Norwex announced that they have begun production of personal use face masks that will be available later. (Exact date yet to be announced.) I was thrilled!
They are being made out of their window cloth material – which is very dense and contains their built in Baclock system.
I’ll be honest, I want one!! However, they have already carefully stated that the demand will be far greater than they will be able to supply at first.
I am putting together a list of people who would like to be notified when they become available for purchase. Would you like to be on that list and notified as soon as I know? If so, fill out the form below and I’ll email you as soon as I find out!
In the meantime, I discovered a super easy DIY method!
I’ve recorded a quick video to demonstrate, or you can read the step by step instructions below.Or, to make 3 separate face masks, cut each cloth into 3 identical sized pieces. (Cutting the cloth will make a less bulky and hot mask.)
**Update: Upon further experimentation, it is recommended to cut apart the cloth and make multiple masks for breath-ability purposes. For detailed video and written instructions on how to do that, click here.
2. Slide a rubber band or hair tie onto each end, stopping at about 1/3 of the length of the fabric.
The center will then become like a “cup shape” that will go over your mouth and nose.
3. Fold each end toward the center.
Hold up the mask to your face, center the “cup” portion over your nose and mouth, and attach the rubber bands around your ears.
Ta Da! You did it! See that was easy…
