Nitrile Gloves: butchering , gardening, painting, etc...
Just finished processing 98 cornish cross chickens. This time I wore nitrile gloves instead of the powder-free latex I had used for years.
These gloves are tough-never had one rip after gutting and trimming 24-30 chickens. (I always take a break after each batch)! I get a new pair for each batch. The gloves are very pliable...I can 'finger-out' the lungs with no problems. Have not had any sweating issues...nor rashes. After air-chilling the birds in the frig for 24 hours, I again don these gloves for cutting up the birds that are not frozen whole.
When I use these for gardening, I simply wash my hands with the gloves on, and then clip them to a hanger to dry for reuse. This season, I have only used about 6 pairs ...and that was because I managed to nick them on rough wire.
Of course, I wear these gloves for bleach clean up. They are my favorite NEW item of the year!
Found them at Costco. Made in Thailand. Do not know if they are at Lowes or walmart.
