Best way to tidy up fiberglass building insulation (pink stuff)
 
Here is a picture of our unfinished basement storage... lots of fiberglass building insulation which the previous contractor just sort of put it up randomly...

Is there any good way to clean it up / tidy it up a little bit so that it would look nicer? Any ideas? Thanks!

probably would have to replace it.

Shameful disaster area. Very sloppy work. Other than covering it, I'd say no, there is no easy way. Yank it out and replace it w/ some Roxul, imo, and air seal while you have that junk out of there, if practical.

jilingel, thanks for your help... I google'd it and found these DIY videos with Roxul. Just a quick FYI for people who might be interested.

buildingscience.com, too. roxul is good insulation, imo. fg is not so good.
