Itchy insulation trick

Messing with all of the fiberglass insulation in the 67' ambassador project reminded me of a trick I needed to share with you. Don't you hate when you work up a sweat insulating and you hate to wear head to toe clothing protection? Then you begin to itch and it becomes difficult to even finish the job. Well in my early years of an apprentice I had encountered a lot of these situations. I had seen a experienced older journeyman dusting himself all over with baby power as if he was a powdered doughnut. I could not help but ask why he was doing this. He had told me that the powder acts as a barrier for your pores in your skin. It doesn't allow the fiberglass fibers to enter the pores thus creating the itch you feel. So what did I do? I covered myself til I looked like Caspar the ghost, and to my amazement I did not have the urge to itch all day long! I felt as if I could roll in the stuff, immune to the itch. So let this be a trick you try next you face the task of messing with insulation.
