Abstract
So, you've got your gloves. Ready to put them on, right? Stop. Not so fast! Did you clean your hands first? Your hands might be contaminated. Putting gloves on over these contaminants traps them against your skin. That can lead to irritation and dermatitis. Remember, your hands are your living. Protect them. They will last your lifetime.
