Before you make an antiseptic at home, remember that it will act only if it contains 60-90% alcohol. Also, the product will not be effective for heavily soiled or greasy hands. First they will have to be washed and degreased. This is why it is considered safe and proper to simply wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. This procedure protects against the virus more effectively than using a sanitizer.

If there is no access to water, an antiseptic will come to the rescue. Take it with you when going outside, to work, to the store, etc. Put 3 ml of the solution on your hands so that it completely covers them, and treat them with skin for at least 30 seconds. Pay special attention to the area under the nails, since a lot of dirt accumulates under them and the virus can survive. And so that from frequent use of the antiseptic, the hands do not dry out, use a moisturizer. And remember: sanitizers are toxic, so keep them away from small children.

Wearing a medical mask is recommended for those who come in contact with sick people, show signs of a respiratory illness (especially a cough) or visit public places (for prevention and protection). It should tightly cover the chin, mouth and nose. Change the mask every 3-4 hours. Sewn at home can be worn again after washing and ironing at the highest temperature.

  • bandage or gauze;
  • cotton wool;
  • thread, needle, scissors;
  • essential oils (optional).

How to do:

  • Cut 80 cm of the bandage, fold it four times and sew along the edges.
  • Make 4 ties from the bandage and sew them to the mask. This is the easiest option.
  • To make the protection more reliable, put a layer of cotton wool 14 cm long inside the bandage.
  • Some doctors also recommend applying a few drops of pine, juniper, tea tree or fir essential oil to the dressing. But you can do without it.

3. Mask with filter

For its manufacture you will need all the same as for a fabric dressing + non-woven material as a filter. It can be found on the Internet or in a sewing store. The filter will more reliably protect against pathogens. Just put it between the layers of fabric while sewing the mask. By the way, the filter can be made removable, for which cuts are left on the inside of the dressing so that it can be pulled out and changed.

4. Paper mask

What do you need:

  • paper towels or napkins;
  • elastic bands – 2 pcs.;
  • stapler.

Preparation method:

  • Fold a paper towel or napkin with an accordion.
  • Tuck the edges, put on elastic bands and fasten with a stapler.
  • Remember that such a mask is the most unreliable. It quickly soaks, so it is not recommended to wear it for more than 30 minutes.
