How to make Your Own N95 Mask – Easy Tutorials for Everyone.
I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now, large chain stores like Wal Mart, Costco & Lowes are starting to turn people away at the door, specifically turning away those who aren’t wearing masks. Since we’re in the middle of a worldwide crisis, sometimes finding a mask is a lot harder than you would think.
Suppliers all over the world are running out of products and materials to keep up with demand.
