Respirator Storage

Recommended Posts

Just in case someone else is leaving their respirator on a shelf like I was...be aware that it is probably being contaminated and won't protect you. I just came from a paint store and bought a new respirator because the air flow in mine seems constricted even though the cartridges were pretty new. The clerk explained that the respirator needs to be stored in a air proof bag to keep from absorbing odors while not in use.

It seems like common sense now but I never thought of it. Two years ago, I got bronchitis and said I would be good about wearing a respirator. Well I came down with bronchitis again and I'm thinking it's candlemaking related.

So everyone please be careful!
