I found out quite by accident that the material in common
disposable facemasks works pretty well for wiping fingerprints off
of cellphone, tablet, and computer touch screens.
I propose taking all unused,
remaindered stock and turn them into cleaning wipes. They'll
end up in the Pacific
Garbage Patch ... eventually .. just not as
What will mask makers do now?

||Is there any mileage in rendering as much oil as possible into plastics, and shipping it straight to the Pacific and dumping it there into the garbage patch, as a kind of anti-global-warming carbon capture?
||Not by using oil. If you collect CO2 from the atmosphere and
turn THAT into plastic, then you're on to something.
||I'd suggest holding on to those babies till after the flu season
next winter has come and gone. I'm fully prepared to use mine
then if it's particularly nasty. The reduction in the cases of
influenza basically made it non-existent last year because of
masks and social distancing.
||Probably better than having mask burning protests put on
by those who refused to get vaccinated and believe it's all
a hoax, to mimic historic
book-burnings, bra-burnings, Beatles album burnings, etc.
