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.

Sounds like a pretty big issue for you.

Wrap the gloves in a plastic bag and toss them.

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

Sounds like you’re going to have to clean out the whole storage room before you get back in there to do anything. Who knows what other stuff might be sticking out of anywhere. But I would try the tape if you’re particularly sentimental about the gloves. Otherwise just get a new pair mate.
