The main objective of a material mask is to avoid YOUR bodily fluids from being expelled or you being splashed on by somebody else’s bodily fluids. It is my (non-medical) understanding that air still streams through the masks. The best fabric for surgical face masks is cotton that can be easily washed and NON woven fabric as a filter that can be changed a number of times during the day. You can acquire readymade carbon filters too. (for more details about filters read this short article here)
Don’t wish to make your own but buy a readymade mask? Why should you purchase a handcrafted mask? Because obviously you can’t stitch one or you would be making your own, so put a couple of dollars into somebody else’s pocket and keep a handmade company alive.
