Proper Nose Inserts in Face Masks


 I am facing the public at work and many do not know how to wear a face mask properly.

You can make a casing in any mask-if your mask is one of those someone did not put  a pocket you can reach in... just put some bias tape as wide as your casing and stitch it onto the top of the back so you can slip a nose insert inside.

Easy flexible bendable but stays in position above your nose....:

1.  Take two plastic nose inserts  
2.  Put a piece of 22 gauge floral wire in between.
3.  tape the two ends with some magic tape or scotch tape of some kind.
4.  Slide the insert into your sewn casing 
5.  When you put your mask on bend the casing to fit YOUR face and it will not slide down

Please if you are one of these sweet people who want to talk a lot with your mask on put an insert in so that you are really wearing a mask.  If your mask is bopping up and down when you talk you are spreading germs just as if you had no mask on.

Some people say they have an insert, but still they are walking around with the mask falling down under their nose.

Don't take your mask off to eat over an area where other people will be after without wiping down your compromised area.

Don't take your mask off to blow your nose in an area where other people are or where they soon will be without wiping down the area with disinfectant of some kind.


The nose insert should hold your mask above and in front of your nose at all times.... not letting your mask drop down when you are talking.

The mask is not going to perform what it should if you are taking it off when talking to someone or letting it drop below your nose because you think that is efficient to let you breath.

Other Supplies you may want to make the mask for everyone.
