Re. Gloves and masks

I did the right thing and donated my spare stock to nearby neighbours who can actually use them.

Irony: had a few boxes of latex unused due to allergies so bagging them up is feasible if the health authorities

really do start to run out having gone through the cafes, vets and dentists.

The bigger problem is lack of basic equipment that unfortunately didn't get ordered due to

entirely avoidable politics so they are having to go without in many cases.

Incidentally if you have a few pairs of nitrile its worth saving them and soaking them for 30 minutes in HOT water

in a dedicated container with a mechanical oscillation above the maximum temperature which is IIRC 62C then dry out and reuse.

Better than nothing IMHO and they can be checked and saved for tasks actually requiring a germproof barrier using light method

then disposed of safely.
