What Gloves Do You Use???

Hi, I just got my license for AR 2012. I have been in the green business since 2004. Got a truck and a spray rig. Haven't started spraying yet. Have about 80 customers I mow for and landscape, and am hoping to get there accounts. What I was wondering was a couple of thing.

What gloves do you use? My hands sweat a lot.

How do you keep the gloves clean on the jobs?

So are these a throw away glove. You peel them off and at the next job you get another pair ?

Yup

They also got buckets of 15 mil PVC gloves that
Are fine for some uses

I guess it's a bit expensive but its time saver

I don't think there is any way around it. I have used a black surgical type glove, every rubber glove from Depot and use a rubber glove now with a cotton liner glued in it. My point is use them for a few rounds and swap em. They all will stink your hands will stink. Keep some Dawn handy.

I have a few pairs of the 15 mil green nitrile ones from gemplers that I use when mixing and every truck has a pair in case of spill cleanup. I also use these if I have to change or clean a nozzle.

Most of the time when I'm applying I use 6 mil disposable black nitrile gloves. I get mine from car quest. I forget the brand. They put them on sale once a year and I stock up. They are very strong. I use them when working with any kind of granular pesticide and when using a backpack or skid sprayer. I just use a new pair on every job. With the green ones my hands sweat so much that the gloves are soaked after one or two jobs.

I used green heavy nitrile gloves, that were a couple of sizes too big. I built 3 inch diameter cubby holes on the truck near the reel, to store them in after I was done spraying. I wanted to be able to write invoices and drive without gloves. Use then again for next job. Once a day, rinse them off in a bucket of soapy water and put on wooden drying spikes to dry. (Or hang by the fingers with clothespins. On the truck or inside the cab. They dry overnight).
