What is the best way to get fiberglass out of your hands?
And what is the best thing to use to keep it out of your hands?.. I wear gloves for work but its still getting my hands.

chainsaw just above the wrist

The best two that I have heard is using tape and "pulling" the glass out ouf your skin, and taking a cold shower. And for keeping it out this is what I heard works best cover exposed skin with a heavy coat of talcum powder before work(supposedly closes the pores) and wash work clothes separate...

Get better gloves. They must sell some for that kind of work. Or double the gloves, wear two pairs at once.
As far as I know, fiberglass has to work itself out of the skin and you just have to put up with the irratation till then.

depending on how bad ...wash with warm water...if its really really bad...hospital.....and to keep it out wear 2 pairs of special gloves they sell at home depot

Do you wear the thin, elastic gloves, the material gloves, or those rubbery yellow ones.
I would think that the rubbery yellow gloves would work best, because the thin elastic gloves are too shear, and the material gloves are well, material. Which leaves ways for the fiberglass to get in. Also, make sure the ends of the gloves are closed off and dont have a big gap, which would make room for the fiberglass to enter that way.

In my experiences with fiberglass, if it was really annoying I would use duct tape and press the tape on and off my hands. I would only use a small piece at a time ( so not to just keep moving the fiberglass from one spot to another ). As for gloves at work, you might try a different material, and style. Maybe try latex gloves ( like doctors etc. wear ) under regular gloves. You might want to try a gauntlet style glove, like a welders glove that are much longer, and cover the wrist.

The best way to get it OUT is to use cellotape - the fibres will stick to the tape. Buy the widest tape you can and cut five strips, each 8 inches in length, overlap these lengths side by side (so they make a sheet) and then join the ends to make a circle, with the sticky side out. Put one hand through the circle and roll or "dab" the area (on the other hand) with the fibres in. Even embeded fibres will come out.

To stop fibres getting IN, use surgical gloves under your other gloves. Your hands will get quite warm but it will keep the fibres out.

soak them in salt water (warm) for no less than 10 minutes then take them out and rinse under warm water and repeat if needed and it should work.

It may sound stupid, but try this. Use warm water to open the pores then wipe your hand or arms with a pair of panty hose, The fiberglass fibers will hook the hose and pull from your skin.

two ways..
take some duct tape...reverse it around one hand and pat your other hand. The sticky side will pull up the fibers.

second way is take some Elmers school glue.... Spred it on the area that is contaminated...let it dry... Then pull it off.. The fibers will come with it.

as for keeping it out of your hands in the first place... Wear the Yellow Fiberous Gloves. The big ones that look like big birds hands... And tape your long sleeves to the gloves.

hope that helps
