Gloves In The Workshop

Always wear the proper glove for the task at hand. Maintain a supply of good-condition gloves of the following types, and add special purpose gloves as needed.

  1. Heavy Work Gloves: for handling building materials and general interior and exterior wear.
  2. Jersey or Heavy Cotton Gloves: for yardwork and general wear.
  3. Rubber-Dipped Masonry Gloves: for working with concrete and mortar.
  4. Disposable Plastic Gloves: for painting and light finishing and for handling hardwoods, like cherry, that are sensitive to oils in skin.
  5. Neoprene Rubber Gloves: for working with caustic chemicals, such as chemical paint stripper, and for working around electrical current.
  6. Household Type Rubber Gloves: for painting and finishing and for working with cleansers.
