    Just wondering how many of you get on using spray basting, if you are asthmatic?
    I am not good at all with anything which comes in a mist spray type container.
    Would love to hear from others regarding this.

    Anything I use in an aerosal can makes my asthma act up.

    Would it help to use a disposable face mask?

    Yes I am thinking I will have to do this, but if it works it will sure be a big help.

    If you wore a mask AND sprayed outside AND waited til some of the spray smell dissipated before bringing your project inside THEN you would be okay. Please, those of you who are asthmatics take all precaution to protect yourself from the fumes, we don't want to trigger an attack. Safe and happy quilting to all.

    I have to make sure that I open the window and there is lots of fresh air in the room when I'm using the spray. It doesn't help that I have nasal polyps to go along with my asthma so really there are days that i'm just a mess! I only use the spray for small projects but I recently have been using a basting gun instead. Anything to not have to take the inhalers!

    I can't live without my inhalers! I have to take medication every day!

    My son is VERY asthmatic. He leaves when I spray baste. It just gives him fits while I'm spraying. He is ok to come back when the spraying is finished.
