Introduction: Simple No Sewing Facemask From Old Shirt Using Staples for Coronavirus, Version 2
- Using the scissors, cut 4 strips of cloth 1 inch (3 cm) wide by about 12 inches (30 cm) long
- Cut out a square of cloth that can cover your face.
- Using the stapler, staple one end of one of the strips of cloth to one corner of the square of cloth. Be sure to use 2 or 3 staples.
- Repeat for the other 3 strips of cloth on the other 3 corners of the square of cloth.
