Cleaning the Skins

So I’ve been looking for a better way to clean and re-glue my skins.  I like to wear wool gloves and one of the things I’ve found is that every time I rip off a skin or handle it in any way I’m often leaving wool fibers in the glue.  This has resulted in a serious lack of stick especially when I need it most (while climbing).

Searching around I’ve seen a lot of people suggesting I go ahead and clean and re-glue using cold water bath and Gold Label.  This is what I’ve done in the past, but the problem is that it doesn’t seem capable of removing the fiber from my gloves.  I did however discover a method that I’m going to try tonight.  Looks time consuming, but it also looks like its going to really leave my skins close to or better than they were when new.
