Default Help with fiberglass

Got a good job building boats. Had to grind a bunch of fiberglass today. Question is, How the heck do you get fiberglass out of your arms? Its everywhere and itches like no other.

Bathing in salt is supposed to help. I would suggest cover-alls too. I hate fiberglass with a passion.

I won't go in the same room as the stuff without full skin coverage... It seems like once you get into that stuff it never goes away...

I have taken 2 showers and its still there. As for the job, I like it. Its alot of work, but not a bad job to start fresh outta high school. We are almost done with a $450,000 sailboat right now.

I always used a pumice soap and showered, but I've never done more then a few sub box's and truck fenders at a time....doing a whole boat may require a lil something more, lol.

I worked using fiberglass a couple of places and heard to put a bar of soap in panty hose and wash using that. Also use cold water like the others said.
