    Updated Pool Tip - Itchy Fiberglass on Arms...

    So - I change a lot of filters... And no matter what I do I always wind up walking away with itchy arms. As it comes that time of year when a lot of people on the forum should be considering filter maintenance, I thought I would throw this out there.

    My old trick was to use a roll of duct-tape: Put the duct-tape on the roll backwards (sticky-side out) and just roll it over the itchy areas. The sticky will grab the invisible fibers and leave your arms no-longer itchy.

    My new trick (I was out of duct-tape ) - I was in the garage after a filter cleaning and had one of those stick-and-peel lint rollers on the shelf:



    Just peeled off an old "skin" from the roller, rolled the new sticky side over my arms... and no more itchies!

    Hope this helps.

    Neat tip. Certainally seems easier on the bod than the duct tape.

    Have you tried the hair spray prevention method?
