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.

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
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
