Default Carbon Fiber Woe

I worked on a carbon shaft for my car this weekend. I had to some drilling out of the carbon from the aluminum ends.

I worked wearing only shorts and thin shirt. Now my legs and forearms itch!!!! I'm suspecting some tiny carbon particles are stuck on my skin.

What are the available remedies?

Dont do it carbon fiber is very bad for you. I read your suppose to wear gloves when you shave it or use a dremel on it.

Seriously try some duct tape and dab it on your skin to try to pull the fibers out of your skin.

Of course I took a shower afterwards The itch started when I rubbed soap on the skin....

hmmmm. I was thinking of shaving my legs hopefully the razor blade can pull some of the dusts out.

wagonman:

that's a nice idea but its starting to sound like waxing. I've heard that hot wax is always better than shaving your legs. Now I'll have smoother legs to add to my nice tan.

I used to work with insulation, same senerio(sp), small fibres. Take a cool shower first to wash it from your skin, hot water opens the pours allowing the fibres in. Also baby powder works good to keep this from happening. Put the baby powder on liberaly BEFORE hand. I now these are preventitive measures, all I can say is don't scratch it. Makes it worse.

Itch on my friend, itch on.

Hey, you have to try the duct tape some time. I'm doing it tonight. Smooth legs, nice tan....

RC is good for the skin.
