Getting dressed up for the job

Gloves, mask, hat and… masking tape!

Wear old clothes that cover your body, preferably with thick enough material to protect your knees and so that strands of fibreglass cannot get through and make you itch.

The higher your collar the better, and you should try to avoid gaps where dust or fibres can get through. It is probably a good idea to tuck in your top into the trousers and to use masking tape to fix the bottom of your trousers to your socks.

The best gloves are probably the Marigold ones.

You will get hot and look silly but it may save hours of itching. After the job you will need a long bath.
