I have an older house 1935. Can anyone tell me if I have asbestos insulaton? What it looks like is blown in cellulose but its white with fiberlike hairs and most of it is like powder of some sort,almost like baking soda.has the same texture as cellulose and feels like baby powder when you rub it on your finger. Anyone have a clue??? Thanks

It sounds like it could be old, degraded rockwool, but get it tested at a lab, to be sure.
I got mine tested for 30 bucks. It was worth it for the peace of mind.
