•If you wear glasses (or eye protection), you know how much trouble airborne sawdust can be. It only takes a small amount of sanding or cuttingbe-fore a thin layer of dust covers the lenses.
To avoid the trouble of having to clean my glasses every time I turn around, I first wipe both sides of the lens with a sheet of fabric softener — the type used in clothes dryers.
The fabric softener leaves a thin film on the lens that helps repel the dust And wiping your lenses removes the static electricity that builds up. It keeps the dust from being attracted to your lenses like a magnet.
