Jason was over one night and I was getting ready to clean the cat box and I put on a pair of rubber gloves. He laughed and said “what are you doing?” So I told him I was doing litter. He thought my rubber gloves were hilarious. I told him I use them all the time. Sometimes upwards from 5 pairs a day. He looked at me like I had three heads and told me I was nuts!! I should note that I cared less.
I know I probably do carry it to the extreme but I find these gloves mighty useful though I have often thought of the waste. I do recycle them however.
I use these things for many things. First on the list would be when cleaning the bathroom. Understandable right? Cat litter understandable too. But I use these things when I do the dishes. Not so much in the summer months but my skin gets so dry in the winter that I have to. I also use them a lot when handling meat. Chicken especially. I also use them when I fill my bird feeders. I mean I have more than 20 feeders and also have a lot of suet ones and that stuff gets gross.
But he made me feel I was crazy. I will admit I’m not the type to see Oprahs’ show on bed bugs or those “type” shows. I obsess HUGELY somewhat over things like that. Ask my brother. I made a cross country trip with him last year and was armed in each and every hotel room with my rubber gloves and Clorox wipes. I know normal germs are necessary and I don’t use them all the time but for messy, dirty or really gross things, why not?
I hate the other rubber gloves that are reusable. They don’t stay on and are very hot. Besides, then I have to wash them. That’s the point of these, use them, toss them. Do you find anything wrong with this or do you do the same? Any compulsions anyone??
