Mask Hack

I really like those medical style dust masks, but the little wire thingy is really wimpy. I never get a good seal around my nose. No comments on the size of this honker! I figured out a way to fix that.

Here's the mask from the package.

Cut a little slit at the edge and fish the lire out. Then cut a piece of baling wire the same length.

Slide that back where the original wire was and that's it. Now it will hold shape and get a better seal.

Then get busy! Don't forget the safety glasses and hearing protection!
