Toxic Plastics – make wise choices when using plastic because it may be TOXIC
We use plastic bags, bottles, containers all the time and we have no idea how bad are they not only for the earth but OUR HEALTH!!
Cling wraps and soft bottles are PVC or V which is polyvinyl chloride. PVC leaches toxins into food especially under warmer temperature
Styrofoam (the soft take out containers) – it’s made with carcinogenic benzene which may be disrupting styrene into food
Reusable food storage containers – are usually made out of polycarbonate plastic leaches bisphenol A which is a reproductive and hormonal toxin
Dear readers please be careful and protect yourself and your loved once.
Thanks

I use CQB (tm) gloves for TM operators and you can use this glove for your work. You will feel comfortable to work with this gloves and you can do quick movement of your hands. I would like to recommend for this gloves.

Gloves depend on the application, latex gloves are suitable for general household cleaning where as chemical gloves are used for chemicals

There is a specific type of glove for every use. check this out for more info about what gloves to wear for chemical handling.

Although I probably should, I don't wear rubber cloves when I clean walls and ceilings. I don't feel I can clean as effectively with cloves on, plus water always seems to get inside the clove.
