    thank you, Serena, for directing me to this well-presented and informative video. i will link it to mine so my viewers can see it too. just as a tip, the gloves i use are made of white nitrile and i get them at Costco. so you too can wear them when making your videos. once again, thank you.

    I found you to be very informative. Thanks for putting the information out there. I do have a question about the mask you have linked in your supply list. The Elipse mask has lots of good reviews regarding the fit. I’m wonder if you use different filters for it. I don’t see where the filters that come with the mask protect against VOC’s. Maybe I’m missing it but just wanted to check before I order one.

    Hi… If you made alcohol ink with markers and 91% alcohol, its still harmful?

    This is a great video! Do you use eye protection? If so, goggles or safety glasses? I wear prescription eyeglasses, and, of course, there’s lots of space between them and my eyes.

    That’s a great video Serena. Where do we go to get fit tested for the mask? Thank you

    Have you checked with safety equipment suppliers like https://www.northernsafety.com/Search?i=1&q1=Safety+Products&q2=Respiratory+Protection&q3=Reusable+Air+Purifying+Respirator+Cartridges+and+Filters&sp_pr=v2&tp=json&x1=category-1&x2=category-2&x3=category-3 for cartridges. The organic vapor cartridges are probably appropriate, but I did not go through the complete listing of alcohols to check. Here is one for Isopropyl Alcohol https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npg/npgd0359.html. You can check others at https://search.cdc.gov/search/?query=alcohol&Submit=Search&affiliate=cdc-main&sitelimit=www.cdc.gov%2Fniosh%2Fnpg%2F. Be sure to mention breakthrough time issues for cartridge replacement and to never leave your respirator in the room containing vapors after you leave because that will kill off the cartidges permaturely. Loved your video on safety.

    Help (pls don’t attack me) I didn’t realize all the precautions about alcohol ink until I noticed how much fumes I’ve been inhaling and have been working inside my small apartment with my kitchen not too far away from me. Will I be okay and my apartment be okay after airing the place out?

    I also use a pair of old socks (toes cut out) over my wrist. One pair of gloves, then socks & a second pair on top.

    I still see people getting the ink all over their hands, etc.
