  1. The mask order doesn't specify what type of mask other than to say a face covering. Why not just tie the bandana behind your head? Wear it like they did in the old western movies when the stage coach was getting robbed by the bad guy. That's what I do. Funny how if someone tried to go into a bank with a mask on they were probably going to rob the bank but now its required! Life sure makes some funny turns, don't it?

  2. Since I believe wearing a mask is useless, but being made mandatory, I will use this mask WITHOUT all the unnecessary folds. I can't stand not being able to breathe fresh air, so mine will be made paper-thin. Thanks for the design idea.

  3. I followed the instructions, however the hair ties fold my ears over and fall off. This mask does not stay on my face! Anyone have a clue why that's happening?

  4. This did not help me at all. You did it too fast I had to slow it down extra slowed. And I followed all the steps correctly but my mask didn't come out good. I rate this 1 out of 10.

  5. It's mandatory tomorrow so thank you for putting this up. Big help.

    I "stole" some rubber bands from work but I wonder if fishing line would work too. Heavy/Thick fishing line.
