An invention for staining (and other dirty jobs)

Page 1 of 2  

The gloves I've used to protect one's hands effectively when staining/finishing are so darn bulky that I lose the tactile feel of the work. The thin gloves (surgical type) that I have tried don't seem to have the proper chemical compatibility..they dissolve when they hit the stain.
So I was thinking, has anyone concocted a gel or spray (like those spray bandages), that one could put on ones hands, do the dirty work, retain the tactile feel of the work, and just wash the material off..along with the dirt/stain/finish etc.
Or..can anyone recommend a brand of surgical type glove that has the proper chemical resistance to stains/poly/tung oil/spirts etc?

Nitrile gloves are more chemical resistant. Relatively cheap at Harbor Freight.

Yes, 3M marketed that product some 20 years ago and others have also. It is still be available.
The problem is that you almost spend the same amount of time working the product into every nook and cranny, deeply under your nails, wrinkles and so forth as you would cleaning stain off of your hands. And then you have to reapply every few hours.
Swingman? Did you ever try it out?

Hell no ... being country raised, stained hands were part of the territory and I've never been effete enough to take precautions.
Blisters and splinter are another thing altogether, so enter real gloves only.
AAMOF, I saw some really big, flesh colored blisters on my fingers yesterday and thought it was strange that I hadn't felt a thing ... turns out it was Titebond III, from spreading it with my fingers.

I'd write to them and ask what they are using that will melt latex gloves. I've found their paints to be the best. If custom mixed, you should be able to get the information you need from the store. That would be my first line of attack.

I use the vinyl gloves from harbor freight... $2.99 for a box of 100 when they're on sale.. (the only time to buy anything from HF)
Never had a set dissolve or had any problems with them.. can't speak for latex as I've never tried them.. Mac

There's nitrile, latex, and several other types that resist different chemicals to different levels. Check the packages for details. Having the right kind makes a big difference.
Cloth glove liners, like those sold by Grainger, can add to the comfort.

Originally I thought the nitrile gloves worked. But I had a pair on for 60 min today during a staining job. Stain got through to my hands. Jerry

LOL! I think you can find a can at Kragen Auto Parts that's about 1/6th the size, for close to the same price. <g> (Great for those living in a single wide)

Also try a little prior WD40 wiped on with a cloth.

Read the thread. Prior to staining. Why didn't you ask, "Wiped on what?" while you were at it?

It was a simple question. Are you trying to be an AH?
Reread the post you that you responded to.
You answered my thread and my thread was only taking about clean up after staining and had no mention of preparation before staining. Since you were directing your suggestion to me, I wanted to know if your answer was indicating to applied WD-40 prior to cleaning with paint thinner or prior to cleaning with Fast Orange.
Obviously "wiped on my hands" since you were responding to my post and not the OP.
Since you chose to direct the answer to me instead of the OP you were lacking in details.
