An Overview On Gardening Gloves

There are so many benefits to spending time in your garden that they are too long to list. A few include increased vitamin D, lowered risk for cardiovascular diseases, reduced stress levels and even a longer life. If you’d like to start a garden in your backyard, you’ll want to invest in a quality pair of gardening gloves.

Determine what construction material would be best for the specific gardening task you’d like to accomplish. For example, if you’re working with thorny roses, you’ll need a glove made from a high-quality genuine grain cowhide. It’s extremely resistant to punctures and abrasions. Cotton and rubber gardening gloves are fine for planting vegetables and pulling weeds.

Look for a pair of gardening gloves that promote proper airflow, like the Pine Tree Tools Bamboo Ultimate Sensitivity Gloves. This set of gloves is made from bamboo and is not only breathable to keep your hands nice and dry but are also absorbent. Moisture is quickly whisked away from your skin while you work.

Check the grip of the gardening gloves next. The COOLJOB Breathable Rubber Coated Women’s Gardening Gloves, 6-Pair uses a foamed latex coating for a non-slip grip. It also works to reduce hand fatigue, which is important if you enjoy spending long hours working in your garden.

Decide how much of your arm you need covered to work with your plants. For example, the Legacy Gardens Leather Heavy Duty Gauntlet Gloves extends up to the elbow to protect the entire forearm while taking part in certain landscaping tasks, such as moving rocks or pruning bushes. Shorter gloves are fine for container gardening, weeding or mixing a compost pile.

Consider a set of gloves, like the G & F Products Micro Foam Coated Gardening Gloves, 6-Pair, that are designed to be multipurpose. That way when you’re not gardening, you can still use them to go fishing, clamming or finishing a construction project.

DWYM Fun Fact

Did you know that astronauts can garden in space? It’s true! NASA created a special growth chamber to help plants thrive in weightlessness. Here are a few more fun facts about gardening:

  • Studies actually show that plants respond to sound at 70 decibels or higher. This is the same level as a human voice, so feel free to talk or play music to the plants in your garden to help them grow.
  • You may be surprised to learn that blackberries, strawberries and raspberries are part of the rose family.
  • In 1987 President Ronald Reagan signed an order to celebrate gardening for an entire week each year. This order was extended in 2002 to include the entire month of April.

The Gardening Glove Buying Guide

  • Reviewers report that some gardening gloves arrive with a strong odor about them. If this happens, there are a few things you can do to get rid of the unpleasant smell. Set them out in the fresh air for a day or two first. Oftentimes, the gloves just need to be aired out. If that doesn’t work, however, sprinkle baking soda inside and outside the gloves. Set them aside overnight and then shake the baking soda into your trash can in the morning. Baking soda is well known for its power to absorb nasty odors.
  • Since you’re using your gardening gloves in dirt, you’ll need to clean them regularly. It’s always best to check the product label for specific cleaning instructions, as different materials call for different cleaning methods. Generally, cotton gloves can be tossed in the washing machine using the cold water option. You’ll need to line dry them afterward. Use a soft-bristled brush to remove dirt from leather gloves. The gloves can then be cleaned using saddle soap. Rinse the soap away with a moistened rag and allow them to air dry. If your gardening gloves are made of rubber, you can wash them with a little dish soap and water.
  • Gardening gloves can vary greatly in price. Design and construction materials are the biggest factors that affect the overall cost. You’ll find the G & F Products Micro Foam Coated Gardening Gloves, 6-Pair and the COOLJOB Breathable Rubber Coated Women’s Gardening Gloves, 6-Pair are among the most affordable. It’s common for multipacks to cost less per set of gloves. You’ll pay a moderate price for the Pine Tree Tools Bamboo Ultimate Sensitivity Gloves, which are made from bamboo. The most costly set of gardening gloves is the Legacy Gardens Leather Heavy Duty Gauntlet Gloves, as they are made out of goatskin leather.
