Those filters have fiberglass, you absolute fuckwad.

I legit thought filtrete filters didn't contain fiberglass.  I swear I researched it and confirmed that before purchasing a filtrete filter. 
If you notice in my original post, I said "some filters contain fiberglass.  you don't want to breath that shit"

I thank you for pointing out the danger of fiberglass in filtrete filters, so now I am re-researching to confirm that the filter I bought indeed, does not contain fiberglass.  I admit that I am now having a hard time confirming 100% that the filter I purchased doesn't have fiberglass in it.

I have found some Filtrete brand filters that 100% do not contain fiberglass.  It looks like Honeywell also makes some strictly polypropylene HEPA filters.  I have also found some information indicating that even if your HEPA filter does contain fiberglass, it is not that dangerous.  I am an essential worker who cannot work from home.  There's no more N95 masks.  I'm simply trying to make the best of the situation with what I have.

So, I appreciate you pointing out the risk and I will continue to try to make sure I'm not using a HEPA filter with fiberglass in it, but you don't have to be a dick about it.

Don't forget eye protection. The droplets touch your eyes it's as good as done. Might as well swish the virus around in your sinuses.

Sealsed goggles are ideal, but ANY splash guard like common safety glasses will be better than nothing.
