Your Rubber Gloves 1928

The life of a pair of rubber gloves can be greatly prolonged by proper care. Wash and rinse thoroughly after each using, dry by patting with a soft towel while on the hands, and dust with talcum powder to remove the last traces of moisture. Then turn wrong side out, and again dust with talcum to absorb all traces of moisture due to contact with the hands. Any tears or cuts should be mended immediately with patches of adhesive tape applied to the under-side.

When the ends of the fingers begin to show wear, turn the gloves and use them the other side out, the left glove thus becoming the right, and vice versa.
