When coronavirus broke out, many of us were told that wearing a mask was not necessary unless you had tested positive for COVID-19 or were sick with any other disease. However, as cases of coronavirus-positive people have skyrocketed in the past few weeks, the U.S. Center for Disease Control now says that everyone should be wearing masks when going out of their house.

However, masks have proved to be a scarcity even for medics themselves, so how and where the hell are you supposed to get them? Well, if you’ve got some skills and a sewing machine, this shouldn’t be a problem. But what about those who don’t have one? Well, this woman comes to the rescue with an easy and informative DIY guide on how to make protective masks by using your old t-shirts!

For those who want an even quicker method to make a mask, there is a popular one including a handkerchief and a hair tie. This option requires no sewing at all—just take a handkerchief and fold it a few times. Then, slip the hair ties over each end, fold those edges in toward the center of the mask, and loop the hair ties over your ears. Voila, you now have made yourself a simple and slightly uncomfortable face mask!
