The 8210 Plus is a step up from the standard dust mask, although still just intended for (sanding, grinding, and sweeping) dust rather than oil based aerosols (spraypaint, etc.). You need a better mask for these — Fix It Tools has a 20 Pack of 3M 8210PLUS N95 Particulate Respirators for $11.89.

The N95 means it has 95% filtration efficiency on solid or liquid aerosols that do not contain oil. It has a braided headband (strap) and adjustable (bend the metal bridge…) nose. It’s a lot better than shoving your nose in your shirt, that’s for sure.

    It’s also the ones the CDC recommends for flu pandemics. Double bonus.

    “Respirators: Unless otherwise specified, “respirator” refers to an N95 or higher filtering face piece respirator certified by the CDC/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).”

    I have yet to find any disposable dust mask that does not fog up my safety glasses. So I’ll stick with my Darth Vader respirator.
