Why do you need gardening gloves?
Gardening gloves not only protect your hands but keep them warm and dry. They prevent your nails from getting dirty, they stop you from getting blisters and calluses and can prevent prickly bushes, shrubs, and thorns from scraping and cutting your hands. Additionally, if you have existing cuts or scrapes, gloves can prevent further infections. If you purchase a good pair of gloves, they can also prevent insect bites and stings.
Many people are unaware that you can also contract fungal infections from certain plants and soils.
Gardening Know How explains, “Sporotrichosis, or rose picker’s disease, is a fungal disease that causes nasty lesions and skin ulcers on people. This disease is oftentimes contracted from infected rose thorns or sphagnum peat moss.”
How do you wash gardening gloves?
It's no doubt that gardening gloves get dirty, but they also pick up things that you don't want on your skin (poisonous plants and fungi for example) so it is important to wash your gloves after using them. Experts recommend washing your gloves in warm water after every use to keep them fresh. If they're extremely dirty, try adding a mild soap. Pop them on the washing line after to get plenty of air around them to prevent mold and bad oduors.
If your gloves are made from a specific material like rubber, we recommend referring to their care instructions inside just to be sure.
