    If you keep your resperator in your garage or whatever, check to make sure there are no spiders in it before you strap that mother fucker to your face.

    Spider bites hurt like hell :zombie:

    here's a better tip... you mask is CONSTANTLY filtering whatever air surrounds it. If you keep it laying around in your garage then the filters are dead and worthless after about a week or so.

    Keep your mask in a tupperware container, no spiders, fresh filters.

    good call SMARTha stewart.
    but is that a dramatic estimation, or a near exact amount of the longevity of the filters?

    Yeah, good question....is a week the average life expectancy of a mask filter if left out?

    or does it matter from brand to brand how long it lasts?

    make sure the respirator you use is designed to filter out paint fumes.

    ...this is pretty acurate...it's all covered in the safety thread i think...your mask filters two things...one: paint particles...chunks of overspray that can get in your lungs and nose and whatever, pretty damn bad...two: chemical particles...this is the more dangerous part, the stuff that gives you brain cancer and nerve damage and shit like that...this is also the part that wears out as your filter gets exposed to air...it's a good idea to keep your mask in some sort of air tight container (i use a ziploc freezer bag and a tupperware container) and replace filters every few months...you'll notice when your mask isn't filtering chemicals anymore, because you'll feel your head being buzzed even when you wear a mask...so go buy more filters...

    unfortunately it seems that there isn't a set period of time that filters go bad after, so like porque said you just have to try and keep them airtight and change them as soon as you notice that you're buzzing or you smell fumes.

    "Organic vapor filter cartridges stop working when their carbon granules become saturated with solvent. Most respirator users need to replace their cartridges more often than they realize. Also, individuals vary in their ability to smell solvents. If solvent odor is detected inside the mask by the wearer at any time, it means that the filters are saturated or that the fit is inadequate. Train workers to correct this situation immediately." --California Department of Health Services
