Wow, you guys can really take ANY subject and really run with it, hilarious I say. As well as entertaining there Cowracer....but you posted at midnight, don't you folks ever sleep. Midnight "shots" and 1 a.m. bonfires were acceptable last week but you need to get back to work now. As for the slinky issue, I've also handled worse hazmat incidents both animal and infant without gloves after saying "I'll get them in a minute" then GUSH. I always thought the reason for connecting the black & grey tanks at one outlet was to allow us to rinse off using the grey water. But now I have this nasty rash that won't go away!

So--if you wear gloves, then take them off and handle them either throwing away or storing them, what good did they do you. I don't use gloves, don't stick my hands where they don't belong, and thoroughly wash my hands with soap and water BEFORE entering my unit.
What I really don't understand is why some folks where gloves, then take them off and store them somewhere in their unit for later usage. That one makes no sense to me.

I had just gotten back from the opening night at the Hockey game and was... Well... Lets just call it "getting ready for bed"

No gloves were used.

I agree, they have to touch the outside of the gloves to put them on. I guess it just makes them feel good.

Truth be told, you probably come in contact with worse things during a normal day, than the stinky slinky.

When I had jet skis we had a saying, "Ride more, worry less".
I think this is the same deal, "Camp more, worry less".

Well... I have to admit ... I do have a dedicated pair of gloves for dealing with the 'stinky-slinky'.

However, I seldom use them. They are long black HD rubber gloves that go half way up the forearm . When I do use them I rinse them off....hang to dry before putting them away.

I have a pump bottle of 'hand sanitizer' right handy at the storage bay to do a preliminary clean before I handle any water valves or go inside to wash up.

OH...I do refrain from eating Dorrito's from the bag when working with the Slinky !

In plumbing, grabbing a Dorito from a bag falls under the 3-second rule. We eat the whole thing.
