Help solve my dust issue? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
You can always go pick up some panty hose (of whatever color), and cut it to fit. Dead serious by the way. It's only like $2 or something stupid like that at Wal Mart. And it'll work well.

Just saying though, you're still going to be cleaning just as often. But now you'll be washing panty hose instead of just blowing it out with the air compressor.

Was hoping that my vacuum would clean off all the dust easily if i went with the panty hose idea. what about using the same fabric that's used in those dryer filters? (where u dry your cloths)

Honestly, the most commonly used stuff to make dust filters is panty hose. Reason being, it doesn't obstruct airflow too terribly badly, easy to clean, its cheap, and comes in a variety of colors. You just have to cut it to fit, and figure out a way to mount it.

My fiancee is a clean freak. I never get dust but then I also don't run 24/7. The panty hose is a good idea. There is also a 3m anti-cling spray that prevents dust build up
