I find that disposable gloves end up getting snagged on the excess of the clamps no matter how careful I am and they end up with holes, so they defeat the purpose. So I go without gloves.

Your immune system is there for a reason. A few germs left over after good hand washing is probably not going to hurt you. People are WAY too paranoid about germs these days.

I am mindful of keeping things as sanitary as possible. I don't store my fresh water hose with my sewer hose fittings. I cap the end of my fresh waterhose if I have to toss it on the ground to get it under the van to reach the tank filler on the curb side.

And I always wash my hands after touching the hose.

I'm with the hand washing and no gloves crowd.

I saw a couple pull in near us one time and the first thing the lady did was get out with a spray bottle of bleach and spray down everything including the picnic table and in ground fire ring. Then the gentleman put on black hard rubber gloves that reached up to his elbows to hook up everything. He used the same gloves on the sewer hose and water hose, even on the power cord. Go Figure.

Oh no.....another grey water ground contaminator!!

I didn't have time to read all the responses but, to answer your question. No, I have no gloves in my RV. But, I do wash my hands after draining the tanks.

Heck, I live on the farm. I spent 6 hours today using a 1500 PSI hot water sprayer to blast pig manure off the floor of the barn. You quickly learn to keep your mouth shut when doing this. But, you do end up getting manure splashed all over you. And, for the record, hot steaming pig manure hurts when it gets into you eyes. lol

What? No hearing protection, contamination suit or goggles while you cleaned the barn?

My hats off to all the farmers in this world. Where would we be without you? It's hard and dirty work. But the next time I have pork chops I'll think of you! Thanks

stuhly, I'm betting you are a plumber. Back in 02 when I was a plumber, I never wore gloves and don't remember if I washed my hands before or after lunch.

I use gloves, for all sorts of things,(sensitive to 'stuff' not germs!) however before I remove them I wash my hands, gloves on, and swish in either vinegar and water or in mild bleach and water...(depending where they have been) I dry off and then remove gloves, by now they are cleaner than my hands.

If I am using the hospital type rubber gloves I just toss them and wash my hands. (one box of 100 for $10.00 makes them very economical)

Years ago, while in Nigeria my wife was at the market buying groceries. She paid the young girl and when the girl handed back her change Sandy extended her left hand but the girl would not place it in her hand. Our housekeeper quietly told Sandy to extend her right hand at which time the girl gave her the change. Later sandy found out that it was bad manners to touch someone with your left hand. Apparently some don't use gloves or paper either.

Thanks for the laughs folks. This has been much better than the Saints game. Keep em coming.

Cool

[QUOTE=Wayne M;1869316]Yeah, yeah, yeah, Dennis.

Teresa, not picking on you but others have reported the same thing regarding not touching the T handles, etc.

Not picking on me at all...as for the T handle and waiting around. Our standard practice is to take care of the black tank hookup after everything else has been set up when we arrive....sometimes it is a day or two after we have been in a park. When we are getting ready to leave that is taken care of the afternoon prior to leaving and so that helps eliminate contamination. Regardless hands always washed! Thanks for adding to thread. It has been fun to read all the responses.
