Nylon

According to Smart Air test Nylon is said to filter out 77% of large particles and 12% of small ones, and it was breathable

And also layering a nylon stocking over the outside of a mask can boost its filtering capabilities.


Chiffon and Natural slik may also be recommended with these

Fitting:

The Mask you make should be able to fit properly , It should not be Too tight or loose it should be correct fit for your face and you must be able to Breathe properly and that's the Point


Multiple Layer:
