So, what are the best gun cleaning gloves?
…and why should you you wear a pair of the best gun cleaning gloves?
You should be wearing some sort of hand protection/gloves when cleaning guns. Gun cleaners and solvents can harm your skin either from the harsh chemicals themselves or from the fact that they remove oil. Even the non-toxic gun cleaners will leave your hands very dry and scaly. Dry skin will become irritated and itch. You skin is naturally oily and is a sign of healthy skin. Overly drying out you skin will eventually damage it.
Most gun cleaners and solvents contain harsh chemicals that are hazardous and dangerous for humans. These chemicals can be absorbed through your skin and get into your body/blood stream and cause all sorts of problems not too mention carcinomas. The skin is the easiest way for toxic chemicals to get into the human body other than your lungs.
The best gun cleaning gloves are nitrile gloves that fit your hands well and are tear resistant. Nitrile is impervious to any type of gun gleaning or lubrication chemicals. Wearing gloves will prevent chemicals from coming in contact with your skin and prevent it from getting under your fingernails. Anything under your fingernails will stay in contact with your skin for long periods of time because it’s very hard to remove everything from under your nails. It’s best to prevent it.
Tear resistant gloves are a must because you don’t want to tear your gloves while handling gun parts that may be pointed or somewhat sharp. Plus, gun cleaning generally is a robust process that can tear ordinary latex or nitrile gloves while performing a rigorous cleaning. Gun cleaning is just a rough process, typically.
