    Hi all,

    I bought some latex gloves to use in the tank, I noticed when I got home they have powder on them. Can I rinse them in RO and use them in the tank?

    rather buy the powder free ones.
    Getting your hands into wet latex gloves is going to be a mission.

    You can still use the powdered ones if you want to clean say the skimmer cup and frag corals. But dont use them to submerge your hands in the tank.
