Clever Gardening Technique

Glove Care
To clean your garden gloves after working in muddy soil, simply wash your hands with your gloves on. Use a bar of soap, just as you would if you were washing skin. Once the gloves are clean, remove them and set them in a warm location to dry; the top of the water heater is perfect. Leather gloves will dry stiff, but once you put them on your hands, they will soften up in no time flat!
