I like Practical Farm Ideas Magazine because it's an amazing source of cast effective and well thought out ideas covering all aspects of farming, especially machinery. It is a great bonus to me in the daily running of the farm!

DIY Coronavirus Face Mask

Has your stock of face masks run out and you now need to protect yourself with something? 

Editor Mike Donovan experimented with a 2L milk bottle and came up with something which stops the spread of contamination and is comfortable to wear. He cut the bottle at an angle, cut string holes at the top by your nose. Kitchen towel pushed into the spout makes a replaceable filter, and the inside is easy to disinfect. 

"If this prevents somone else, or me, from becoming a statistic I don't mind if it looks unusual."

People don't mock but approve and some take pictures. They can see the potential to reduce cross-contamination and save lives.
