Wear nitrile gloves to protect your health
1 of 1
Buy nitrile gloves by the box and use
them for all auto and household repair
jobs. They cost about 15¢ a pair.
In the old days, guys called you a
wimp if you wore gloves when you
worked on cars. Aside from the wimp
factor, gloves were too clumsy for fine
work. But we now know that some
automotive fluids contain caustic or
even carcinogenic chemicals. That's
why most auto techs now wear nitrile
gloves, as should you.
Nitrile is a durable synthetic material
that protects your skin from the chemicals.
The gloves are available at auto
parts stores and online for about $7.50
for a box of 100. That's 15¢ a pair—a
small price to pay to protect your health.
