These are made to the guidelines from the referred medical websites what material to use, and they will be standard size and available to put your own filter in.
these are strictly 100% cotton, which provides a tightly woven fabric of natural materials. You can slip your own filter in this. It isn’t as effective as the n95 but it provides protection when most are running out completely!
Not ineffective..Just not as effective.. But still filters 50%https://smartairfilters.com/en/blog/diy-homemade-mask-protect-virus-coronavirus/?fbclid=IwAR1m4_vY2G0TmjPmNzmqfvN3jMpqsFVqwPz_WsCbYCgiMTRih-TdKXfE-qo

CDC link and comments..
HCP use of homemade masks: In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.
And while not ideal. Today our local hospitals are reusing the same mask 5x before they are allowed to toss them. They can wash and sterilize fabric masks.
I made masks for my aunt who is going through chemo and can’t access any. She has a little wiener dog and a fairy garden- hoping it brightens her spirits.
