MUSLIN CURTAINS AS AIR PURIFIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 4 March 1914

MUSLIN CURTAINS AS AIR PURIFIERS. Doctor John Brown, the Medilcal Off. cer of iiHealth at Bcru.p, has drawn at tention to the usefulness of muslin 2urtains in altering the air of rooms. The amount of solid matter removed from the air by the muslin window rlrtain has surprised him, and it f. common knowledge in the northern manufacturing towns that in dark. foggy weather they are no sooner up than they are dirty enough to come I down again. As he says, they are cheap and easily washed, and should Ibe changed frequently. One condition lhe advocates, but does not Insist on, i: that they should not be dressed or ironed. The advocates of neatness and trimness would assent to this un :-Illngly. Hie says it would conduce to the healthiness of our homes If all air inlets had muslin filters. He also advocafes the use of muslin to filter the air for greenhouses, for though aseous impurities would not-be re moved there would be a distinct gain by excluding the solid particles.
