What type of gloves should I use and are there any guidelines on how to use them?

It is recommended that you avoid latex gloves since it is estimated that 10% of the population contain latex allergies. Polyvinyl, nitrile, chloroprene or Polyethylene are recommended as alternative materials to latex. Make sure to use high-quality durable gloves to minimize leaking and tearing, and have different sizes available to ensure a proper fit. Always make sure to wash hands thoroughly before and after glove use, including when changing into a new pair of gloves.
