... that doesn't cause my safety glasses to continually steam up!

I'm fine with a proper filter mask for painting but this is when I'm using the basic paper disposable type for sanding and body prep etc, there must be a slightly better mask that works with glasses. Any recommendations?

Yup we use those at work and the good thing about the bag they come in is it can be resealed as well to keep things clean.

I've used the 3M one for several years but as a fellow glasses wearer found it sometimes steamed them up. 

 

I've since bought this https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - which has replaceable filters and you can even test the seal before you start grinding your asbestos :-) - Its very easy to use, and feels like your breathing mountain fresh air!

 

got it from Amazon, but screwfix also sell them and the replaceable filters. 

 

Happy (filtered) breathing

A bottle of rain-x anti fog I saw some in aldi pretty good stuff.

I have had several masks and nothing beats the 3M! (Unless it's more money!)
