Only use gloves (leather) for the fire. That's about it. I'm at the point that I stay pretty darn clean throughout the process. If done correctly, you shouldn't really need gloves. And with the black water wash attachment, it's even a cleaner process. Take your time, do it right, and there won't be a mess.

Agree if done right, gloves shouldn't be needed. When I do feel a need for a little extra coverage, I use a roll of pet waste bags (poop bags). Cheap, easy to keep a roll available, sturdy, and we always have them anyway since we travel with dogs. Heck they even come in pretty colors if you desire!

I, also, use disposable vinyl gloves. I pick them up in 100-packs at HD or Walmart paint dept. I keep them in the drivers' side back door pocket of the truck. Also keep a container of disinfecting wipes in the door pocket cup holder, and use them to wipe off the hands, wrists and forearms after removing & disposing of the gloves.

I once had a piece of TP caught on the black tank valve, that prevented it from closing tightly. It would leak a little stuff into the drain pipe, which (of course) drained out all over when I opened the cap. After a couple of spills, I started putting a bucket under the drain before I opened the cap. On one occasion, it actually filled the 2 gal. bucket! After a couple months, the paper finally dissolved, and the gate valve now closes completely, again. Point is, I learned the hard way!

Surgical gloves for me too. I also use Clorox wipes on the CG faucet before hooking up as you never know what's on there. I try not to touch anything while dumping, but wipe everything down with a wipe afterwards anyway. A good hand washing is the last part of the process.

Just wondering. I'd like to hear what users actually do and have to say about it.
For those very reasons is why I use the disposable nitrile gloves. 50 pairs in a box. Cheap at Costco....

Saw a guy once with reusable gloves.. After he dumped he put his hand in is pocket and grabbed his keys (with his gloves still on) and put them in the ignition. Then he took them off and threw them into the cab of his truck..

As far as using no gloves and then using soap.. Isn't that like closing the barn door after the horse got out?? If you have any cuts, scrapes, etc.. Your risking infection as soon as the fecal matter hit your hands...

I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express so I am an expert in these matters you know..

The only real benefit to gloves is to protect if you have open cuts. Telling is that my old restaurant health inspector was very against the use of gloves when preparing food (as was his whole department)! He/they recognized the public perception part, but produced copious scientific documentation that wearing gloves produced more food contamination problems, not less. Why? With gloves, your hands never feel "icky", so you are more prone to touch a lot of things with them on, that you wouldn't otherwise. Watch in the next fast food place as workers adjust their hats, push down full garbage, pick up dirty towels, grab dirty handles, etc. that they would never do if using bare hands - and then go back to making your food. Only in the best places do they change gloves super often. With bare hands, most people will wash more (or clean the dirty thing) as they get stuff on their hands. But perception is that gloves are cleaner.

Same goes for us and our RV's - with gloves your hands don't detect that you touch something wet/icky, so you go about touching latches, knobs, hoses, etc. that you may not have touched without getting the "ick" off first. And later someone comes back and touchs some of those things with bare hands, transferring the bugs that shouldn't have been deposited there in the first place if you had washed!

So at minimum, use lots of hand sanitizer, until you can get to soap and water. Even better, set up a small soap and water "handwash station" to use frequently as you are working - and running water is better than a pail, if at all possible. Hand sanitizer is ineffective on most viruses, but flushing with soap/water works well for everything!

Of course, gloves can keep your own personal "ick" factor in check, but make sure you are constantly aware of everything you touch while wearing them. Either change right after touching the dirty thing, or at least wash your hands with the gloves on as you would with bare hands before moving on!

(Yep, disposable gloves were one of my higher expenses in my restaurants, but since the public demanded seeing them, we had to do it right!)

Why are so many people getting the "icky" on their hands? When I'm doing my sewage stuff, I don't touch anything that touches the "icky". Not the inside of the valve, not the inside of the hose, not the inside of the sewer outlet. I rinse my tanks at least once (even if I'm at a dump station) which then includes rinsing all the "icky" too. Then I rinse all the "stuff" and wash hand immediately after. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, wash hands immediately.

Ohhhhhh..are you supposed to wash your hands? That answers why all my food tastes like pistachio nuts!
