Hi

Can you recommend a good boiler suit for DIY:
Taking off plaster,
Building working
Getting into crawl spaces under floor
Sorting out the attic space full of dirty, dusty 50+ years etc.

Been told I can't keep coming back in my Jeans and jumper covered in crap, so can hopefully leave overalls at the house.

Cheers

You can get disposable coveralls from decorating suppliers. Just bin when they get torn of dirty.http://www.wholesaletoolwarehouse.com/safety-and-workwear/clothing/656617-disposable-overall

com - get a poly/cotton mix boiler suit BUT, BUT, BUT make sure it's well oversize. Back in the day you could get them with removable button toggs for washing but most of the ones I see these days have press studs. When they get filthy rinse-out in a bucket to get the thick off before putting them into Mrs coms washing machine.
