This Projet is all about a air Cleaner / Filter I designed myself.

It is realy dusty in my room so I thought it would be nice to have some that cleans it.

Put the Velcro on the inside,

Leave no gaps.
Double it on difficult passages.


When you put in the filter use the more fluffy side for the attaching to the velcro. (if you filter got one)
