Sawdust clinging to face shield.

Does anyone have any tips on keeping my poly-carbonate face shield from attracting sawdust? It's not fogging up but getting coated with dust like static cling. Right now the best I've come up with is using a soft bristled paint brush and brushing the dust off every few minutes

I have heard of people using stuff like RainX meant for car windshields on their visors to reduce dust clinging and fogging at the same time. I have not tried it myself as I just wipe off the shield now and then which also gives my hands a little break. Most times when the shield starts getting loaded up my hands are getting tired also.

I agree with that. I was thinking about the anti static spray for clothes and or hair.

This is what I used on my full face motorcycle helmet. It kept the dust off as well as helped with bug cleanup.

BTW I think the dryer sheet idea is good too, and worth a try.

"Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer, 'Am I worth dying for?'"

Has anyone actually tried the dryer sheets? It sounds like a good idea but I'd like to confirm that it actually works before I put something on my face shield that I may regret. Not that it matters but the main ingredient in dryer sheets is animal fat.

I use the dryer sheets after they've been thru the dryer. I keep several in a baggie in my workbench drawer and keep one in my pocket at all times. I wouldn't want to use one straight from the box.

Not to mention the wonderful aroma they have, try snuggles

I measured it once, and I cut it twice, and it's still too short......

dryer sheets

I use dryer sheets. fresh ones, on my Triton Respirator which is fully enclosed. They are the best I have come up with. I use the unscented ones, the others would drive me right out of it, even with the fresh air. I also wash all my work cloths with fabric softener, to keep dust from clinging. I learned that as a Corian fabricator for many years

I forgot to mention that it should be "used" dryer sheets. Fresh ones from the box can scratch some plastics.
