Latex Sterile Gloves protect the hands while weeding!
I weeded my asparagus bed yesterday and was surprised and gladdened to see nice, big stalks poking through the soil. And I discovered that I could weed a bed 10ft by 4ft. and not get my hands dirty! I usually don't care about such things, but my neighbor had been by and he swears by surgical gloves for working on machines. He loves fooling around with cars and tiller and lawnmowers which is the best kind of neighbor to have. He doesn't have to scrub and brush to get the grease off after he is finished. Anyway he left a pair at my house so I could try them for weeding. I was going into town and thought I would see how they worked since I wouldn't have the trouble of scrubbing the dirt from in and around my fingernails.
These gloves come powered which means they are easy to get on. If you buy nonpowered, then you can use corn starch to powder you hands and the gloves will go right on. These gloves have textured fingertips. I like them because you can still feel the weed and the soild while you use them so it's almost like not having any protection at all. It's nothing like the big dishwashing gloves that are supposed to protect your hands. These fit snugly. You can still dig down with your fingers to get around the stem of a weed to pull it out cleanly. I really think I may make this one of my staples for gardening.
If you hate getting your hand dirty gardening, and still like the idea of being able to crumble soil and dig small holes with your hands. this is the solution for you.
