Wearing Gloves Can Be Sticky

When using latex or vinyl gloves while gardening, I find they are tough to open and insert hands. Sometimes after they have been taken off, a finger or two may get inverted.

If I've been handling herbicides or other toxic materials I sure don't want the gloves close to my mouth.
Gardening is cheaper than therapy and you get tomatoes. ~Author Unknown

Good thought! Mostly I just use them when filling containers with potting soil as my fingertips crack (dry out) too easily.

I don't use much toxic at all but will remember this ~ thank you much, Kristi
