    Just wandering how your PPE is stored on your vehicle from the time you put it up, til the time you put it back on. Do you just lay it in a toolbox/tote, or in the back of a truck?

    What's your process once you arrive at a lawn in terms of putting PPE on?

    Looking for better ideas on how to store stuff.

    Nobody has a serious reply? C'mon. I use one of those Rubbermaid totes from lowes or wherever and keep it on the trailer or back of truck with something on top so the lid don't blow off.

    I'm don't spray daily though so it's easy for me to keep clean but I also wonder myself how chemlawn guys or those that do mainly pest and fert aps all day keep the cab of the truck from getting residue all over the seats and steering wheel when they get in and out all day.

    My old truck I just threw my gloves in the bed. Now I keep them in a fiberglass box where the hoses are. Boots stay on all day.

    I keep all but the gloves on as long as I am spraying. I wear two pairs of gloves when spraying. An inner pair of nitrate gloves with another pair of regular dish washing gloves over the nitrate gloves. When through with a yard I take off the outer pair and put in a small bucket in the bed of the truck
