Question covering insulation in ceiling basement

hello all,
i just moved to an old house. The full unfinished basement has fibergalss insulation on the ceiling with the pink fiberglass exposed facing the unfinished basement. I want to cover the fiberglass as i am concerned with it becoming airborne (if it hasn't already). I have my washer and dryer down there as well some other stuff. I was told i could staple tyvek homewrap on joists as it allows the moisture through. As opposed to using regular plastic which would trap the moisture (i have a humid basement). However, i just found out that tyvek is combustible and shouldn't be placed close to heating sources (i.e, my furnace). Any other ideas what i could use?. I dont want to put something too permanent such as screwing in sheetrock since i also have my plumbing and electrical up there and may need acceess to it.
thanks for any advice

Al

How about put a drop down in. That way you can get back into it anytime. Thats all we use in the basement anymore.

Home depot and lowes have them you just put up the T bars and drop in the tile. Can put a clear plastic in and just let a light above it shine down. Have put Xmass lights above the clear panels in the ceiling turn them on and its Party time.
