Recycle Mask Material

As cleaning wipes
  [vote for,

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 STILL end up in the Pacific Garbage Patch ... eventually .. just not as soon.

       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.
