I decided I would add some insulation to the bedroom. My lovely friend 8ch had a bit of a bubble wrap insulation frenzy a couple of years ago. He loved the stuff so much he lined his slippers out with it. The success story was so incredible that I decided I would add some bubble wrap to my bedroom ceiling. I had a roll of it in the workshop waiting to be used and this afternoon in-between doing sums I found myself with a handy 'sticking bubble wrap in the ceiling' break.
It took a bit longer than I expected. When I took the lining down there were a few gaps in the insulation already there. The solution was simple - spray foam, especially as I had a tin of the stuff.
Everything was going swimmingly well.
I positioned myself and sprayed away. I was incredibly careful not to get any on me until I suddenly realised I had somehow, heaven knows how, got it stuck in my hair. When such things happen there is only one thing to do.
So I did. I panicked straight into the bathroom with shampoo and water.
It wasn't terribly effective because I couldn't see the spray foamed mass as it was at the back of my head and I wasn't really getting anywhere. I needed help. With visions of shaving my head and wondering if that was such a bad thing, I decided I needed to make an effort to get the stuff out. I levered my neighbour out of his boat to come and assist - I handed him my thinners and a rag and eventually I managed to get it all out. Copious amounts of shampoo followed to get rid of the thinners too.
What a pain.
Anyway. I finished the job without any further ado. I think it went OK.
but I still smell of thinners.
