face shield

This may be a silly question but everytime I reach for my face shield there is a layer of dust on it that I must wipe off. It's almost like it is static cling on it. I was wondering if there is anything you can clean it with to prevent this or at least reduce it? Do you guys use any product that will help?

I'm not sure what, if anything, you can do, but I would think anything that you could do would be more work than just wiping it off before use each time.

I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks.

Try wiping the shield with a used dryer sheet, like Cling Free.

I use the anti static dryer cloths, but mine still gets dust on it. I think that because of the way I store though.

I use the used dryer cloths but the way mine is stored I have to clean it off anyway. It does clean off a lot easier.

They are a dust magnet. I blow mine off with an air nozzle, and also spray it with glass cleaner and wipe it off with a soft cloth.

Thanks for the replies. I wasn't sure if there was anything that could be done but thought I'd ask. I think I'll try the dryer sheets, can't hurt right? Thanks again.

Pledge furniture polish will do wonders!
It doesn't prevent the dust, but it seems to fall of easier, with less build up. I use it on anything clear hard plastic ....like guards etc. It covers up all the small scratches and makes it look like new again

Get yourself a large size ziploc bag and store the face shield in it when not in use. That will help a lot.
