I recently had a leak in my bathroom that led to a lot of mold. I am in the process of tearing down drywall/insulation and replacing.
One of the pockets between the studs has water pipes (hot & cold). Is it safe to put insulation in this area touching the pipes? I noticed that there is no insulation in this section of the wall, so I am hesitant to put it there.
The insulation I bought from Lowes is fiberglass that is wrapped in plastic (instead of being faced with paper). It said this was more resistant to water and safer to handle than the paper-faced kind.
Here's a link to the insulation I purchased:
