What are nitrile gloves, and where / when / why should I be wearing them?
I use them for lots of jobs:
- working on greasy pumps, engine
, etc to keep my hands clean. Nice not to walk around with black under the fingernails for a week.
- Painting and varnishing for the same reasons.
- Working with epoxy
, sovlents and other nasties that you don't want in contact with your skin.
- When using bleach or other things that leave your hands smelling and are hard to clean off.
