The pantyhose layer, helps creates a tighter seal around the face to reduce how much air leaks around loose edges — similar to the seal on an N95 respirator. Pantyhose is a sheer garment. Pantyhose can range from 8 to 30 denier (the measurement used to denote thickness or thinness of fabric). Tights, on the other hand, are 40 to 100 denier.

If someone were worried about packages, mail or objects being contaminated, placing them into the oven like this would probably work if allowed to reach that temp internally for that time.
