Saran Wrap Eye Protection???

Intro: Saran Wrap Eye Protection???

No! this is not OSHA approved.

But I had forgotten my specs at home, and crap* was falling in my face while working under a kitchen sink. This even keeps that stuff out of your nostrils if you pull the edge down a bit.

I do not recommend this with power tools, just for work with small low velocity particles.



* crap, in this case was probably minerals from the water, schmutz  from the disposal, mold, mildew....

    a few times I forgot my safety glasses and just needed to rip a quick piece of wood and all I had was some 2 inch box tape so I made some temp glasses and stuck it to my face. It worked great. I really dont recommend doing that, but it was better than getting something in my eye. I was just thinking about using some to replace the lens in an old pair of goggles.... and do some testing before actually using them!

    I saw this and thought "this is a terribly unsafe idea", but if it worked, that's awesome - did they fog up?

    They did fog up. But I know where everything is at under a sink, so, I could almost do this job by braille if I had to.

    Today, I was doing more work on the same sink. I remembered my glasses, but I don't think they work as well as saran wrap when lying on one's back looking up at falling dirt.

    If it worked, it was well!

    Years ago I made something like this using a clear PET bottle and a rubber band.
