Yes, but (Score: 1) by Anonymous Coward on 2015-10-03 14:47 (#PBPE) Are there better alternatives?Besides, perhaps, single use hand towels.

I know they are used in some air duct systems, but i'm not sure how efficient or quick they are, particularly for such a high volume of air.

Surprisingly, people actually used it.
