Nose Breathing in Smoke-filled area

Nose breathing is more effective in filtering dust and smoke, therefore when in an area filled with smoke
such as a forest fire, try to breath through your nose, preferably with a wet cloth in front of your nostrils. This is something children should be instructed to do. Within the nose are mucus deposits and  nose hairs that are quite effective in preventing particulate matter from entering the lungs.
