Topic tags/keywords: question

Is the dust bee gone dust mask any good? Does it really work as advertised or just slow down the big stuff? It looks more comfortable than a respirator in the heat. The disposable ones don’t seal on me, so are actually worse than not wearing one at all. I don’t know anyone who has one, so hoping a fellow lumberjock can give me some feedback on it.

Hey Kaybee
I have a couple they work great and you save a lot on dust mask because dust be gone is washable you just use it over and over

i use one everyday for sanding and it works great, and i have a beard , so those little paper ones don’t seal at all for me.

Great! glad to hear that they really work, not just a good idea. Woodcraft has them on sale for $33, so I ‘m going to order one now.

I love mine. Doesn’t fog the glasses. Rinses out easy.

I also have one and have used it for the past 5-6 years. I wash it regularly and it seems to work great. I have a beard and glasses and it is the only one that does not fog my glasses.

I’ll be the devil’s advocate on this one. I’ve had one for a year and don’t really care for it. It doesn’t fit very tightly so fine dust can seep around the edges. I think this has more use for a turner (big curls) or when working on machines that don’t produce super-fine dust.

I do agree that it helps immensely when it comes to fogging the glasses. It doesn’t funnel the air up to cause fog.

Just a couple thoughts.

I know they come in different sizes and I had some of the same problems until I bought the larger size.
