3D model description

*Update: Blue shop towels might be more effective than cotton/paper towels, based on this article https://www.businessinsider.com/homemade-mask-using-hydro-knit-shop-towel-filters-better-2020-4 *

This frame helps convert a standard paper towel to a DIY face mask. Paper towels may not be as effective at filtering particulate matter compared to other materials in DIY masks (100% cotton, vacuum bags, Tyvek), but may be more readily available in most households. Best use of this mask is to stop people from touching their face.

Use this mask at your own discretion.
