    You get used to em'  I work in the back of an ambulance and still hated the feel of them, but I got sick and tired of my hands looking like filth no mater how much you scrubbed with hand cleaners and scrub brushes. Got embarrassing, and I'd find myself hiding my hands from people.  You know you get all that dirt and filth in the dry skin cracks and it never comes out till it wears away.

    Now I just wear the gloves and suck it up.  Sure the glove finger tips get caught in ring grooves and under bolt heads, but it keeps my hands a lot more presentable.

    I deal with dead bodies, I got used to wearing them and went to Napa and bought the $18 black gloves that are a little thicker than the rest they offer and are well worth it. They are not as thick as some embalming gloves but they are thick enough to re-use. BTW we never re-use gloves at the funeral home.

    Also, thank you so very much for uploading these great videos. I am just learning the restoration process and am dangerous so these are just what I need.
