Solution for Solving Dust Mask Steaming up Glasses

Post by Benchillian » Thu Mar 17, 2016 7:12 am

I'm in the middle of upgrading the loft insulation - horrible dusty job!

I'm wearing a coversuit and a £1 dust mask from Wickes, which work fine. That is, except when I have to put my glasses on - they steam up immediately, so I have to take the dust mask off to do anything I need to see close-up.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is there some kind of dust mask that doesn't cause this?

I've actually finished that particular dusty job, but I'm sure I've got plenty more in the pipeline. The two-mask solution did help a lot, but I'll definitely look into your recommendation.

Many thanks!
