I went from no gloves working in IT to full on herbicide and pesticide commercial applicator/sales here in Texas. Dealing with some real nasty stuff these days. I have a backpack full of gloves depending on what I'm doing.
We can't use cotton as it holds the chemical next to the skin causing dermal contact. I have some synthetic rubber gloves for mixing chemicals, leather for spraying and dealing with a muddy , wet hose.
What I can't understand is people who don't take care of their high dollar leather gloves. I clean my daily and put back in my backpack with my eyewear, hearing protection, yellow vest and hard hat. I see gloves left everywhere caked in chemical and dirt. Our company springs for nice deerskin gloves.
