Latex gloves are a common item in the laboratory or medical workplace. They are mainly used for sterility, and protection from foreign agents. Latex can cause some allergic reactions in people, so to combat this and provide a higher level of protection acetynitrile gloves are used.

Here is a good trick to flip your gloves inside out to wear them again when you previously had flipped them inside out taking them off (following?). First, stuff the glove back through the glove opening. Then hold onto two sides of the glove opening (the wrist part of the glove), and flip the glove around a couple of times, making a sort of seal on the opening. Then, holding the seal, squeeze the glove (that now looks like a balloon with the fingers pushed in) and the fingers will pop out, making it easy to put the glove back on.
