CAN TOWELS SUBSTITUTE MASKS?

The public is in trouble with lack of masks.
Unfair overchanging also became a problem ...

If it can be homemade, can a towel substitute a mask?

Tried with microfiber towel


In the case of a normal face towel, it can be wrapped around the head, but when wrapped around the mouth, it tends to be short.
When I put on a microfiber bath towel, I thought it might work well...

Ordinary pleated masks can block liquid droplets, so they have the effect of greatly suppressing the infection to others. However, as for intake, they say the effect of prevention is poor, according to Japanese media reports.

In addition, even normal pleated masks are made of non-woven fabric with fine fibers, but they have some gaps around the nose anyway.

A coarse towel is also available with fine handkerchiefs put inside.

In this case, you can use a neck warmer or a hair band instead of a coarse towel.

Besides, in the current situation of lack of masks, it seems safer to use a clean towel which you can wash anytime, rather than to use repeatedly used dirty contaminated mask.


But there is a big problem.


that is,






...embarrassed!

It is that.

While I'm proposing, I don't have the courage to walk on the street putting it...



And it's like robbery.


So, I tried various ways of rolling.


カジュアルなタオルマスク
How is it? Is it a new type of freak that appeared in a devastated future world?


フォーマルなタオルマスク
Formal putting style (maybe in the future) 
It can also substitute ties.


Important note:
All proposals here don't based on any medical evidence. But I suppose the towel mask would provide some effect not to infect others, at least, in comparison not to ware a mask.
