I don’t know if this technically counts as “safety,” but I couldn’t think of a better place to put it.
I’m sure everyone’s reached a point where after a long day in the workshop you blow sawdust out of your nose for the next few days. Allergies and lung health aside, I find it pretty annoying to have a layer of dust caked over my boogers.
A while back I bought one of those Sinus Rinse kits from the drugstore when I had particularly bad nasal congestion (not related to woodworking). It was fairly effective at clearing my sinuses out, as least temporarily.
After one particularly heavy day of breathing in mesquite dust, I decided to give the squeezy-bottle a try. Wouldn’t ya know it, it did a pretty good job of clearing the brown-colored dust boogers right out!
I know some people don’t particularly like the idea of squirting saline water (or anything, really) up their nose and having it run out the opposite nostril, so this probably isn’t the best for them. Heck, my girlfriend can’t even watch me do it or she starts gagging. However, for me, it sure beats turning Kleenexes brown for the couple days following my shop time.
Anyone else have another remedy?
