I live in a house where the previous owners made boats. I am building a saw bench and I took a board down from the rafters and it had fiberglass on it. I have taken care of the roll of fiberglass but my questions are: 1st, How to get the fiber glass strands off the board? 2nd, is there a way to get them off my leather gloves? They are the split leather ( suede stuff inside and out) can I get it off or should I get new gloves?

My first try would involve tape!

Hey! I’d recommend just buying new gloves. It’ll save you a lot of time and hassle in trying to get the fiberglass off.

Wrap the gloves in a plastic bag and toss them.

I would recommend you use a separate pair of gloves when working with fiberglass.
