Be careful on garden cleanup!

Oh, my, what a lesson!  Don't forget icky slugs and invisible insects that can sting. I wear a brand of garden gloves that are knit with Nitrile coating (Atlas).  They are not the cheapest but except for rose thorns and some cacti, they are amazingly protective for a long period.  I also wash them and throw them in the dryer with a dryer sheet which keeps them soft and pliable.  If I've been handling fertilizers or some types of compost, it's also a good protection.  For spraying I wear Nitrile gloves which I buy by the box of 100 from a maintenance supply store and throw away immediately after.  Sometimes the plain Nitrile gloves are also quite the best for handling tiny seedlings or seed sowing.
