How to Build Your Lightbox DIY™
Reusable masks have become the norm and easy ways to sanitize PPE are needed.
There are many effective sanitizing solutions at a range of price points and requiring different levels of skill. Dry heat is a versatile, efficient and cost-effective way to sanitize different types of masks.
Building your own Lightbox DIY™ does not require any hard-to-find parts, engineering know-how, or specialized tools. The Lightbox DIY™ cabinet can be built in about a day using common tools and simple components that cost around $200.
