Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb", from On Gardening. One of the tools that I like to have is rubber gloves in the garden. And these nitro gloves really help your grip, and they also keep you safe. If you're working with any kind of chemical, you really should be using some type of rubber type glove, because you want to be sure you keep your skin away from the chemical. Even if you're using fertilizer, some people are pretty sensitive to different fertilizers, and especially some of the chemicals that you may use in the yard and garden. In general chemicals become safer and safer. But that being said, you still want to keep your skin away from the products. Many of the labels will say, use rubber gloves in handling. Even some of the materials that are seemingly pretty noxious or not noxious, you can use the rubber gloves and have good results. Some of the materials even like oils, or some of the material that have peppers in them, can be aggravating to your skin, you can have problems with them on occasion. Rubber gloves are a good choice in helping to keep you safe in the yard and garden. For On Garden, I'm Stan DeFreitos, "Mr. Green Thumb".
