Re: gloves

Auralie and Kitty,
I use the Nitrile gloves, blue, underneath the cheap rubber coated stretchy gloves. I am so bad about pulling my glove off for something and then my hand is so dirty that I hate to put it back in the glove. If I wear my thin nitrile glove underneath I won't pull it off so my hand stays clean and dry. I love the mix of the 2. My hands do sweat underneath the nitrile glove but if I just leave them off until I am finished it doesn't bother me. I hate what happens to my fingers, fingernails, cuticles, and thin skin hands without gloves. I figure I can always buy a new pair of gloves... but not hands!

Libby, my glove fix probably came from the AHS discussion.  Like
you, I like to feel what I am doing, and also have large hands so that
the average women's gloves don't fit well.  I had used latex gloves
given me by a medical friend, but found I'm terribly allergic to the
latex - my hands were just a mass of red rash.  Someone on the
list, possibly Marge, suggested Nitrile gloves, and I have been
using them with much success ever since.  They aren't terribly
sturdy, though a bit sturdier than the latex.  Thorny material will
rip them, but if I;m reasonably careful about that sort of thing a
pair will last through some pretty rough stuff.  It is possible to
wash and reuse them, but I usually don't.  They are cheap enough
that I don't feel the need.  I order them by the box of 100 from
Gempler's, and a box lasts the season.  They have been most
satisfactory for me.

My question to you all is: do you wear gloves for gardening and if so,
what kind? I generally can't wear women's gloves because the fingers
aren't long enough, and if I could wear them I'd need women's XL which
isn't usually available. My DH thinks I'm nuts not to have worn
