u/Squirrelwinchester · 15 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I recently got some for myself. However, I am allergic to latex so I had to buy latex free ones. The ones I found are Mr.Clean bliss latex free gloves. They are also lined with fleece in the glove so your hands dont get sweaty and gross. Best $5 ever spent.

Clock out. Maybe even send them home, especially if it is slow.

>tattoos, dry hands, emergencies, ect..

Rubber gloves. Cotton lined ones for the pansies. Get these badboys.

>hate me for it.

You need to decide if you want to be their friend or be their boss.

Are you leading by example? Do YOU do the dishes? Assess your relationships with them.

Let me recommend this video: John Maxwell The 5 Levels of Leadership

I know he sounds like a preacher(he is) and salesman(he is), but put that aside and focus on the information, it works.

I know it is frustrating. You have to build those relationships. They are testing the boundaries of your relationship. Just know that YOU are the one that establishes and defines those boundaries.

I have a few pairs of these heavy duty gloves in the trunk at all times. You never know when you need to change your tire or cover your tracks at a crime scene. Very versatile.

Why do you wear those huge gloves? You need to wear something like this so you can actually hold her between your thumb and index finger like this.

u/thesecondkira · 8 pointsr/madmen

I bought it earlier this year. Here's the thing. You know surgical gloves? This is going to sound ridiculous, but they solve everything. The design of the Mad Men collection is BEAUTIFUL, honestly. It's the most beautiful DVD set I own. However, the DVDs just... don't.... come.... out....

But the gloves. Using a glove, they come right out. And you're not ruining the BluRay by touching it (the glove leaves no scratch). I keep the glove folded up in the back of the box set. Everything works out fine. I know, I know, this is the definition of bad design, but it's a concession I make because I love Mad Men and, besides the crap functionality, the design is just so lovely.

Next time you go to your doctor ask for a glove.

u/Rhumald · 7 pointsr/WTF

owch man... I mean, may not of hurt while you were playing, but it could keep you from playing for a bit... there's finger guards available on Amazon if you'd like to avoid that in the future:


I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to fashion your own, or better yet a glove, for style points.

u/VoChild · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have dyshidrotic eczema, which starts with small, itchy blisters, and ends up looking a lot like that once those come to the surface. Like many others with dyshidrotic eczema, I also have a nickel allergy which I didn't develop until recently; I cut canned foods out of my diet, and put a protective cover on my macbook keyboard. I'd hit up a dermatologist for advice.

Personally, I use a strong topical steroid called clobetasol propionate during flare-ups and wear nitrile gloves with aquaphor every night. If your fingers are sensitive and are having trouble healing, buy some finger protectors off amazon. I find without them, I pick at it too much and it doesn't heal properly. I've had some really good luck with this, and haven't had flareups since I started wearing gloves every night, and avoiding contact with Nickel.

u/bigchastity · 6 pointsr/chastity

As someone who is currently struggling with the UTI that just won't quit, I have one piece of advice.

"Do as I say, not as I do."

UTI's are incredibly easy to get, and can be really annoying to get rid of. Boiling is good, specifically for about 10 minutes. (2 minutes is sufficient to kill almost anything, but that is what I did.)

Honestly you're unlikely to get a UTI from the insert itself. You are far more likely to get it via cross contamination. Let's face it, crotches aren't clean. Even if you bathe regularly, there is going to be some additional flora/ fauna living down there. And for the most part that's a good thing. The problem comes when you get it halfway to paradise unintentionally. It doesn't mater how sterile the tube is if your hands aren't sterile. What about the "Clean" surface of the table you're using to setup on? Did you just spend 10 minutes sterilizing your tube, then lay it on a "clean" piece of toilet paper? Did you clean the head of your dick with an alcohol swab?

So if you really want to avoid a UTI, here's the best way to do it.
Time to glove up Your hands aren't clean. It's really hard to get them clean, and once you do, it's really easy to get them dirty again. You want to do this right? Change gloves every time you touch anything new. Got an itch on your nose? New Gloves. Finished wiping down the counters? New gloves. Oh, and only touch the cuff of the glove. These things are only "Clean" until you get them dirty. And using your unclean, ungloved hand to align the "clean" glove on your other hand? Unclean.

MadaCide wipes These aren't for your dick, skin, or anything you're going to put in your body. This is for cleaning the environment around where you'll be playing. (No, Clorox wipes aren't enough. If they were they wouldn't say 99.9% of germs right on the label.)

Time to clean your dirty dirty dick New gloves, and wipe the head of your dick, there's stuff living there as well. BZK Wipes are also good for this

Open that single use packet of sterile lube. No, the raspberry flavored stuff from the local sex shop doesn't count. Cough up the money for the real stuff.

So if you've managed to do this right, and changed your gloves every time you touch anything, congratulations, you've managed a "Clean Field" session. This isn't the same as a "Sterile Field". You can still get an infection, you're just less likely to. You can't make a sterile field in your home, it's not possible.

That's the "Do as I say". The do as I do? Well, I typically wash my hands real well, wipe down everything with a BZK wipe and hope for the best. I've also had two UTIs in the last 6 months and have been sounding (shoving stuff in my pee hole) for almost 20 years.

The bottom line is, if you're not going to be able to go in to your doctor and say, "I have a UTI." Then deal with your Dr saying, "Well, we're going to test you for ever STD in the book, cause you're wrong, men never get UTIs." This is not something you need to explore.

u/iaalaughlin · 5 pointsr/preppers


Face mask

Glasses (can be swapped if your mask has a face shield)

Alcohol Based Sanitizer

Full Body Gown (These are good because they are fluid proof, according to their manufacturer).

Boiling water works well for sterilization, as long as your equipment can handle it. Also, these can help.

Treatment plan is supportive care for the symptoms (fever of 101.5 or above), headache, muscle pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain).

Quarantine: Plastic sheeting can help, but you need to determine a method of cleansing the area during and after the quarantine, as well as disposal of feces and other fluids. Fire helps.

u/chabz5000 · 5 pointsr/bikeboston

if you are going full rain-gear, it would include either making your only bike all-weather compatible (full fenders, etc) with the understanding that it will be clunkier to ride and will deteriorate more quickly (rust, sand, drive train, brakes). if you can swing it, get a beater bike that is specifically set up for rain and keep your nice bike (if your bike is nice) in fair weather condition.


carry a basic toolkit (spanner, hex wrench multi tool, spoke wrench, tire levers) and a spare tube or two. unless you want to carry a small handpump, you could invest in some CO2 cartridges and a small inflator. include some elastics, bungees, and a small roll of rubberized gaffer tape (just tear a strip of a few feet and roll it on itself so you have a little finger of black magic) -- the tape can be used for many things, from lashing something to your frame to layering up and booting a tire puncture. last but not least, buy a box of rubber gloves, and keep a few pairs rolled up in your kit. all of this can fit in a small saddlebag, handlebar bag, or hip pouch.


along with your standard toolkit and flat repair/replacement kit, carry an emergency rain poncho and a pair of rubber boot covers. boot covers are especially nice if you end up getting a pair of shoes that you don't want sprayed with water and sand should you get caught in a downpour or have to ride on sticky/tacky surfaces after a rain.


if there is a chance you are going to be riding at night, get a rear flasher and a good headlight (a powerful LED array with multiple modes & brightnesses). good lights usually have a rechargeable external battery pack -- carry a spare battery pack or at least get a few cheap LED flashers (frog knog or similar) to keep in your toolkit as a backup.


one last thing that i find helpful is keeping a few drawstring backpacks rolled up in my kits, as they can really come in handy if you need to pick up or carry something (or remove some clothing) unexpectedly. when not in use they fold up smaller than a deck of cards. if you have to lock your bike up outside and have a nice saddle, you can tie one of these over it so it's not so obviously nice.


i didn't really answer any if your big questions with specific recommendations, or cover any basic cycling equipment (like riding gloves or bike locks), but these are little tricks or lightbulb discoveries that i've picked up over biking in the city for the past 12 or 13 years. most of the small things are non-essential, but come in very handy and can save a lot of unneeded cleanup and frustration. now i never ride without them.

Here's a complete list of all the diy vendors in Canada

The Broke Vaper is a good place to start but you'll prob want to branch out if later if he doesn't have all the flavors you (eventually will) need.

Also, buy more than 5 flavors to start, you WILL want them believe me. Hop on ELR and type some flavors in the search bar that appeal to you. Can be as simple as "banana". Then sort by rating. Pick out a few recipes that look tasty to you and buy the flavors based on the recipe. Most people mess up their first order by buying flavors randomly without a recipe in mind. That's a pro noob tip for ya buddy.

A note on ELR, make an account and use it. You can save all your recipes there. It has an ejuice calendar and a bunch of cool features. You can log all your flavors and search recipes based on the flavors you own. You can follow your favorite mixers to be updated when they post new recipes. Other stuff too so poke around there a lot.

Also, all day everyday. Read the bloody side bar! Don't post on that sub til you've read the entire sidebar and most likely you should put your initial questions in the "Weekly New Mixers Questions Thread" which is always at the top. But ya, the sidebar will teach you everything you need to know to get started and save you from making dumb mistakes. Def worth the time to read.

Important, I highly recommend buying a scale to start. Don't waste time, money, energy mixing by volume. The broke vaper starter kit does not come with syringes, graduated cylinders, etc anyway so by the time you purchase all you need to mixing by volume, you could've spent a few extra bucks and just bought the bloody scale. So here's the link for the scale everyone uses.

I'm almost done here.. bare with me. You'll also want to grab some Nitril gloves. I linked you the black ones in case you feel like doing some cat burglaring on the side.

Last, here's 3 fantastic tutorials to get ya started..

Also go ahead and subscribe to, your main source for YouTube DIY mixing knowledge and entertainment.

Welcome, see you around :)

Ps. I did an unboxing of The Broke Vaper starter kit if you want to see what you'll be getting..

u/Lampwick · 4 pointsr/Locksmith

Nitrile gloves. They're amazing. I'd been on the job for 17 years before I discovered the magic of nitrile exam gloves. I was working at the county hospital and started wearing gloves while working to avoid "biohazards", and noticed several remarkable things about them.

First, the obvious: door handles have whatever people had on their hands on them, and we have to touch them. Two years working for the county, only got sick once.

Second, they keep your hands clean. Job's done, strip the gloves and the lock grime goes into the garbage with the gloves. Most locksmiths I know have that black grime embedded in the cracked calluses of their fingers, mostly because we all end up turning a lot of little screws and stuff by hand. That crud never washes out normally. Three weeks after I started wearing gloves, my hands were pink and clean again.

Third, nitrile absorbs that black grime like a sponge. Nothing is worse than working on a greasy lock and leaving a bunch of smeary black fingerprints all over a white painted door. Wearing gloves, and grime you touch sticks to the gloves like a magnet.

Fourth, brass splinters actually have trouble penetrating rubber. I don't know what it is, but they very rarely go through. I won't say never, because I've still gotten splinter through a nitrile glove, but it seems to happen a lot less.

I used to use the cheap thin 3.5mil blue exam gloves that I got free from my former coworker at the hospital, but I've recently switched to heavier black 6mil gloves. They cost more, but they hold up a lot better. Thin gloves I'd end up having to change one that tears two or three times per job. Black ones, they hardly tear at all.

Welcome to the sub. I'm so sorry you're having a tough time.

It might help your anxiety a little to know that there are a couple of simple, low-cost solutions available for your problem. I hope my reply can give you a little relief.

> This led to piles of garbage and food in my there are tons of these small flying bugs making it a very tough thing to tackle....

I know this one, 'cause I had this problem a couple of summers ago--you have fruit flies! They're a bother, to be sure, but they're pretty easy to get rid of:

  1. Go to the grocery. Buy a container of apple cider vinegar. You'll probably find it in the same aisle as the salad dressings. Buy the cheap, non-organic stuff; you're not cooking with it, after all.
  2. If you don't have any, buy a small container of cheap dishwashing liquid.
  3. Pour about half a cup of the apple cider vinegar into a wide-mouthed glass and add a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Do this with multiple glasses if needed.
  4. OPTIONAL: Seal the mouth of each glass with a little plastic wrap, and then poke a couple of holes in it with a fork. Once the flies get in, they can't get out!
  5. Set the glasses in any room where you saw fruit flies.
  6. Wait.
  7. When the glasses are filled with flies (and it won't take long, the little fuckers love this stuff), pour out the fly-filled cider into your sink (I like to run cold water when I do). Refill, and do it again. Repeat as needed.
  8. Video aid
  9. The above method also works with gnats.
  10. Don't use this method if you keep your windows open, because fruit flies are drawn to the smell of the cider vinegar and will come into your house.

    Now, to make this method TRULY effective, you need to get rid of all the of the rotted food--that's what's drawing the flies (Free food! say the flies). Get rid of the rotted food (and food-contaminated trash) and you get rid of the fruit flies. Try to get rid of as much of the rotted food as you can before doing the cider vinegar trick!

    Rotted food/garbage + fruit flies = GROSS, and it's tough to handle. But the best way to deal with that is to set out your fruit fly traps and then arm yourself with:

  11. Rubber gloves. Those bright yellow ones some people wear in washing dishes are ideal. Latex-free are also available (example if you're allergic. Available at local groceries and drugstores.
  12. Dust masks. Or, if you're really concerned about odor and have the money to spend, consider a respirator. Available at local hardware stores and places like Home Depot.
  13. Wear old clothes you don't give a shit about. Ideally something like old, heavy jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, and heavy socks.
  14. Sturdy shoes. Heavy sneakers are ideal for this sort of thing. They can be tossed in the wash afterwards.

    Once attired with the above, you are invulnerable to fruit flies, gnats, mosquitoes, spiders, and quite a few other vermin. You can then grab a garbage bag, and sail into things.

    Good luck with everything. I don't have any anxiety advice, but maybe having a plan to tackle your mess can ease your mind a little.
u/Brooklyn10101 · 3 pointsr/sex

Do you want to rock his world? Buy yourself some Nitrile (not latex) exam gloves like these and a good silicone-based lube meant for anal play like this one. Once you have these items, read up on prostate massage at /r/prostateplay. My wife does this for me and it is amazingly intimate and pleasurable. It's unfortunate that there is a social stigma associated with anal play; I think every guy should try it at least once as it could be a life changer, as it was for me.

You have already done one step forward, you're determined to have healthy fingers.

I've read posts where some people recommend the finger gloves. I think it would help if you use neosporin like some already recommended you or Lucas' papaw ointment.

Happy belated birthday! 🤗

u/platypuspup · 3 pointsr/Beekeeping

I just started this year, but have yet to be stung through the nitrile after a dozen or so inspections. I think that they make it so you can feel a bee humming before you press on it, which makes it easier to avoid squishing.

Also, for those concerned about waste, I have used the same pair all year, and they have held up.

My mentor recommended the ones with grip for car mechanics.

DON'T GET BLACK ONES though. One of they guys in our class did that and he got stung like 5 times in a row. Bees don't like black things that look like bear hands :p

Finger Gloves

Seriously. These are not just finger cots which are the flimsy little things you use to briefly do something unpleasant. These are actual good quality material gloves for your fingers made out of rubber but allow the normal amount of dexterity you would have without them.

One note, they don't do a great job of allowing you to use a smart phone, but if your fingertips are all torn up you're probably not too keen on touching things like a touch screen at the moment anyway.

I have psoriasis on my finger tips these are the only things i've found that allow me to retain usage of my hands without cracking and bleeding all over or having the desire to get rid of the raggedy skin.

You can get them from the manufacturer too if you want. their site is a little crappy, but the gloves are great.

u/lw2134 · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

u/CorgiRawr · 2 pointsr/smoking

They are easy to get on, no powder or transfer of taste. I will be buying them again!

u/jhaun · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

there are drip tip covers that come on disposable ecigs but to cover the intake holes would be another issue. it depends what size atomizer you have. if you are using a 22mm or larger you could probably use an unlubed condom or something like that. for the smaller ego/mini sized atomizers something like this may be in order.

good luck

u/NannerPie · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

As far as cleaning out the shoes after they're dirty, get yourself a pair of kitchen gloves (I buy the Playtex Gloves) and if a washcloth isn't doing it for you, try a combination of the washcloth and maybe the Magic Erasers.

You could also try pulling out any soles that are in the shoe and replacing them.

u/bundt_chi · 2 pointsr/woodworking

If you are sensitive to pressure treated wood then something like this that prevents the transfer of chemicals but would tear quickly, with less strength to pull your hand into the blade and is more close fitting would better:

u/comin-in-hot · 2 pointsr/gifs

Assueming you already have to bag. I would include the following:


2-4 pairs of gloves

1-roll of transpore tape

10-4X4 gauze pads

2-Kling roll (inch prefered)

1 ace wrap

2 Cat tourniquet (advanced training required)

1 bandaid holder

2 Quick Clot (advanced traning required)

1 Sam Splint

CPR Pocket Mask (optional)


I highly suggest you attend the following classes.

u/somewhatboxes · 1 pointr/cycling

Like /u/jrm2191 said, Park Tool make some... comprehensive tool sets. Those prices are enough to make me choke, though. Your son's riding a ~$400 bike - I don't know how I would wrap my head around buying an $800 tool set, or even a $300 one.

But the tool sets are a good way to think about what tools you should buy. I'd get a basic tool set, fill in gaps, and upgrade selectively. What I'd do, in no particular order, would look like...

  • cheap tool set ($40) (total $40)
  • torque wrench ($50) (total $90)
  • chain cleaning tool ($10) (total $100)
  • cable cutting tool ($35) (total $135)
  • maybe chain pliers? ($10) (total $145)

    At this point I would start thinking about upgrading the tools that your son will use all the time. The thing that stands out for me is hex tools. He might use Torx screws, but he'll definitely use metric hex tools

  • some nice metric hex tools ($15) (total $160)
  • some torx equivalents ($11) (total $171)

    Then probably nice meaty tire levers to make replacing tires and tubes easier

  • tire levers ($9) (total $180)

    If you were looking to spend $300 or that range, then you'll notice you're way under that target. Feel free to start adding on some random nice things, like a portable multi-tool, which will pay off if he has an issue while out on a ride.

  • Portable multi-tool ($25) (total $210)

    I'm running out of things that aren't "consumable" (like brake cables, housing, etc...), so for my last recommendation, nitrile work gloves! (they'll make cleanup a breeze)

  • work gloves ($20) (total $230)

    There are tons of other things you could get (a bike stand, for instance) but at this point I'm getting a bit out of control. and there are tools I assume you have (e.g. a good screwdriver), but at some point I need to stop.

    And obviously feel free to mix and match whatever components you can afford/feel comfortable spending that much money on. One thing that might help would be to talk with him about what kind of work he does on his bike. He might be in desperate need of hex tools, but not treating himself to nice hex wrenches. That could be your quick, easy, cheap answer. Or similarly he might be nervously tightening bolts without a torque wrench, even in places that call for very precise amounts of torque. Again, easy answer regarding what to prioritize.

    Best of luck

    edit: totals didn't add up right, sorry!

u/TherionSaysWhat · 1 pointr/SCREENPRINTING

Yes you can print discharge in your basement and an exhaust fan is a good idea but I've never found it overwhelming or anything. Better than some screen cleaning chemistry, worse than my poster acrylics. You may consider gloves. I wear them for all printing out of habit but for discharge it's a good idea. Be sure to clean up with a good degreaser (I use Simple Green) and dispose of any unused ink properly.

The cheapest (and most unreliable) curing for some water based inks is to "hair dryer cure" to the touch and then run the shirts in a commercial clothes dryer on high for 30 min. You can usually find these at larger laundrymats. This works only for some inks and you'll need to test it.

Far more reliable and not as expensive as a conveyor is a flash unit. I use this one and love it. I just lay out the shirt on a table and hover the flash unit over the shirt for 30-60 sec until the ink temperature hits it's cure point.

If you do not heat the ink to it's cure point, you will end up with a less than durable print. It will wash out over time.

Screens common for water based inks are 20x24", 156-305 mesh. My most common for shirts is 200.

Your squeegees are fine as long as they aren't too wide to fit the shirt screens. Side note: learn both pull and push strokes. Nearly all of my shirt prints are push stroked now. Also be sure to flood after every print stroke.

Not mentioned elsewhere: Emulsion needs to be resistant to discharge. Currently I'm using TX-Discharge and it's pretty good, flexible exposures and pretty high solid content. Over time I've learned that it's best to post-expose screens regardless of how long the run is. A min in full sunlight does the trick.

You can build a 1-color shirt press pretty cheaply with some cheap lumber and hinge clamps. Google it. Please don't stress yourself out trying to use a vacuum table for shirts. It's a pain. Built my last hinge press for like $30 and an hour of work. Totally worth it.

Other than that, start saving up for a multi-head press. Once you get to wear your work... well, it can be addictive. Hope the above helps and good luck!

Yeah, hand sanitizer is probably a big part of your problem. I don't have long wait times, so I just wet my hands between steps so my bottles don't get sticky. What I generally do, is fill my sink with water to wash my face and then keep using it as a basin to dip my hands in between steps. I mostly use a wet washcloth to wipe away cleanser, so it doesn't usually have much more than water. You might try your actives without long wait times for a bit and see if they still work, at least while you're in a dorm. I never needed to wait longer than a minute or two with mine (I don't use them anymore because my face was always like "hell no, this shit is too harsh" even though I was using the freaking super gentle Cosrx stuff...) and they always worked just fine.

Another option, while you are in a dorm.. it could get a bit pricy over time, but maybe getting some disposable gloves, like the powederless ones they wear in doctor's offices. I buy these ones and they aren't bad. 100 for $10, so 50 pairs. I use mine for handling meat in the kitchen because I have issues with touching raw meat or for oiling up potatoes or something because olive oil takes forever to wash off, but they don't end up being all that expensive, even if you use a pair every day. But you could use a pair for your actives and then a pair for the routine if you can't wash your hands prior.

I think a third option, would be to buy a small bucket, or one of those collapsible bowls. Something like this maybe?, that you could fill with water to use as a basin in your room to at least get a rinse on your hands and then you could just walk it back when you are done to dump it out.

The last idea I could think of, isn't my favorite, but maybe cleansing wipes, or baby wipes, so you could get a kinda-wash on your hands from your room. Just keep tabs on your skin, because even the gentlest of them could cause skin problems when residues are mixed with your products.

Saw this deal on nitrile gloves today on Amazon. Are nitrille gloves worth it? I just use medical gloves from the doctor

Maybe it’s just me being weird again but I can’t unsee the white finger gloves .

A few things:

To start with, can we talk about ways to reduce the amount of grime getting on you? Because this is not inevitable. I have a pretty long commute, and I relube aggressively with a very persistent wet lube (Rock and Roll Extreme, which is probably the highest endurance high-performance wet lube), and it never gets on my pants or legs. What's actually happening to get you dirty?

That said, here's my recommended solution:

To start with, I'd keep a pack of baby wipes at your office. I recommend Bloom Baby Wipes. They come highly recommended, they're big, they're textured (which means they're way better at lifting up dirt), and they're really good for sensitive skin. They're also not expensive, so you can use a bunch if you need to. Good for wiping yourself down after a ride to get rid of sweat. As with any baby wipe, they'll dry out if you let them, so make sure to keep the whole container in a closed tub or big ziploc bag and stick it in a drawer out of the sun.

If you really want an emergency degreaser, there's a hack you can use. Use an alcohol-based lens cleaner. Here's a good one. It comes with a small sprayer and a big refill bottle. This probably seems like some no name bullshit brand, but it's actually a reputable company. Like Zeiss (a highly reputable lens company) used to sell this same cleaner, from this manufacturer, rebranded as one of their products. I carry the small spray bottle and use it for my computer screen and glasses, but if I really need to degrease myself, this will do it.

Note that most such alcohol-based cleaners are not good for your skin. Beyond just drying you out, they're sensitizers and can trigger skin conditions (this usually requires high concentrations and constant use). So use it to break up any grease your wipe can't handle, then wipe it all clean with a wipe, and maybe moisturize after that. This is a last resort hack, not something you should be doing all the time. I only bring it up because those spray bottles are tiny and will fit in your purse.

Speaking of something you can fit in your purse, you can buy standalone wipes which come in sealed packets, but they're kinda expensive. I keep a supply of Goodwipes as a backup. They sell them in both a big size for whole body wipes and a smaller size. There's also a pull pack, which I sorta don't recommend. It's way cheaper, but even though it's smaller than a pack of normal baby wipes, it's kinda too big for stuffing into a handbag. There's probably a brand out there that's better for cleaning, but I use these because my skin is extremely sensitive (like frequent contact allergy sensitive), and it's fairly gentle. Also not many brands come in individually sealed packets. If you want a cheaper hack, you can just stuff a few folded baby wipes in a good quality ziploc, squeeze the air out of it, seal it tightly, and stuff that in your purse. They should stay wet for a good while, and since they only cost a few cents each, it's no loss if they only last a few days.

Oh. Something related to your query but not quite what you're asking for. Buy a pack of disposable, heavy duty nitrile work gloves. Like actual work gloves, not the medical ones from the drug store. These are super good. Carry a pair to keep your hands clean if you need to handle your drive train during field repairs. When you're done, pull the gloves off from the base, and they'll turn inside out naturally, trapping the grime inside out. Pack the gloves out and toss them at work. The skin on my hands is soft enough that I basically can't torque anything by hand because it just slips, but these are textured and grippy, so these are also really good for me for wrenching at home too. They're also professional-grade, so they're really thick (why you want these instead of medical gloves), and they have a lot of cut resistance for disposable gloves.

Oh, yay!

What I want most because I've always dreamed of having a turntable/record player and my local Goodwill has the best deals on vinyls!

What I want least because The Avengers is now on Netflix but I wouldn't mind having a copy for when it's no longer on there and I want to bask in the gloriousness of these attractive superheroes.

Hmm I might order this tie-dye kit though for some mid-summer fun with my younger sister!

And lastly, I think the world could do without this pair of latex gloves because washing dishes sucks!

I bought a box of [these] ( and they really help to avoid that skull piercing scent. I found that using citrus oil based cleaners works quite well at killing the smell if you don't have gloves.

If you're concerned about the lead, simply wash your hands when you're done soldering. I'd suggest doing it any time after handling anything lead.

I typically only wear gloves for soldering/electronics repair work when the boards I'm working on are absolutely disgusting from something nasty (cat? pee, mystery "liquid", full of mystery dirt, etc). When I encounter an nasty pedal or nasty amplifier (Looking in my supply cabinet) I've got these: I prefer the thicker gloves as they'll handle getting poked/snagged a little bit better than the cheaper thin ones.

Medical gloves are a good idea. I prefer non-latex. They have a better feel and no worries about allergies:

175lb magnet and 1200lb tensile strength rope from Paracord planet on Amazon was what I was recommended.

Looked back and order was cheaper those two and gloves for about the cost of your magnet. Can always move up. What I was recommended below.

Rivers are still too high for kayaking safely so can't really speak on it but was not overkilling it and am totally not a strong enough person to pull out an ATM or safe. Figure I can get more later but if I do something stupid it's better to have a cheaper smaller magnet and I can just use my phone to get GPS coordinates to the bigger item that forces my hand on a pricier one.




May have better advice from others.

Here's a cheaper pair:
They are only for right handers only and negative reviews say they run small. Much more affordable though if your right handed and have small hands!
