MAKE YOUR OWN FACE MASK WITH FLOUR SACK KITCHEN TOWELS
100% cotton tea towels can be utilized as a quality fabric for constructing a homemade cloth face mask. While any cloth can help stop large droplets from getting in or out, avoid knit fabrics (e.g. jersey T-shirts) because the material stretches and creates holes. The best fabric for homemade masks is a tightly woven, 100% cotton fabric. According to a 2013 Cambridge study, dish towel material is 82 percent as effective as a surgical mask.
Where do I buy flour sack towels?
Our selection of flour sack tea towels are perfect for homemade masks! With no minimum quantity, you can choose from a variety of sizes. We recommend our Premium towels with a 130 thread count as the best material for mask making. It is a breathable 100% cotton flat weave. Our Premium 20” x 20” size (folded in half) can make one mask. For bulk discount towels, add at least 12 or 50+ to your cart for an average savings of 30-60%!
It is recommended to pre-wash in hot water and high heat dry to allow shrinkage before constructing so the mask will keep its shape through multiple uses and washes.
Cloth face coverings should—
- fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- be secured with ties or ear loops
- include multiple layers of fabric
- allow for breathing without restriction
- be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

How It’s Made and How It Works
Safe-Care Basics face masks have a two-layer construction of a cotton-blend face using SILVERbac antimicrobial technology with a non-woven polypropylene filtering inner layer. The antimicrobial property is made when silver particles are permanently infused with polyester molecules to create a silver fiber. The new silver fibers are blended with cotton to create a yarn for weaving. These is made into the mask’s first fabric layer to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria. The negatively charged bacteria are attracted to the silver’s positive charge. The silver ions then break down the cell walls and destroy the odor-causing bacteria as soon as they come in contact. The silver in these fibers are permanent and will not wear or wash out. Tested in an internationally certified microbiology laboratory and GSA compliant.
