Recommended Posts

hey. for those of you who wear rubber gloves (yellow or black ones) when messing with stuff inside your tank, is the powder on the gloves safe or do i need to wash the gloves first? what is that powder stuff anyways?

I brought pute rubber gloves that go up to ur elbow from chinatown for $5.00 and it has powder in it, i think its starch. The rubber gloves i got are a good deal, their thick and durable.

the powder is used to keep the gloves dry when packaged and for ease of putting them on. The dishwashing gloves only have powder on the inside. I just rinsed the outside of my gloves and my tank seems to be doing fine. Just make sure no1 grabs your gloves and uses them for dishes, u dont want the oils and detergent in your tank

I just got some thick latex cleaning gloves, they did have the white powder on them but i rinse that of.


I just wash then after use and they are not hard to get on the next time without the powder.
