I made DIY improvements and mods with the two PM 2.5 Pollution Dust face masks with valve to follow up with the prior review
. It cost about $5 to10 ( https://amzn.to/2xy8hWj ), but I have seen this used when i was traveling 2 years ago with traveling to Beijing China due to the dust and pollution.
Disclaimer: For tech and safety specifics on respirators check with http://www.osha.gov or manufacturers such as 3M (www.3m.com) for info. For the Corona Virus I believe people should follow the Center for Disease control’s guidance. Here is CDC website on the Corona Virus ( https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/ ) .

I would use this for allergy , dust, or pollution mask, but not for wood working or DIY projects as its not rated for N95 or paint or anything. It is very light weight and will get dirty during DIY painting or wood work. I believe this is more fashionable for urban environments as they come in a variety of colors. Use a proper respirator for what you are working on.
Its washable but you need to remove the plastic valve. I noticed that the valve replaceable filters are single use and have adhesive to attach. I dont like this design and plan to modify it if i do use as a pollution mask. Stay tuned for that video.
I made a video previously of all the different masks I use for DIY projects:
as well as P100 mask review
. Soon i will review the 3m Aura 1870+ so stay tuned.
Its washable but you need to remove the plastic valve. I noticed that the valve replaceable filters are single use and have adhesive to attach. I dont like this design and decided to modify the design. The filters it included used an adhesive and the paper filter was harsh. I decided to modify the design by cutting a slit on the bottom part of the mask to be able to slide the filter into the mask like a sleeve. After cutting the it, I sewed back the edges and trim. In addition I also reinforced teh area where the valve sandwiches the fabric to prevent fraying.
Overall the mask is comfortable. but the inner fabric some sort of poly fabric and fleece material making it difficult to breathe. Also the valve is behind the poly fabric to air does not exhaust effectively. I may modify the cloth covering the valve in the future.
