What milking gloves do you prefer?

I use country miles blue latex, not the nitrile ones.

wonder if it is okay to use milking gloves more than once if you wash them good. seems to be a lot of waste.

I remember my boss in parlour telling us, no gloves from today, and chose three people to be responsible for spraying iodine onto teats whom he only gave gloves. We used to have gloveen edge.

Manufacturer says you can clean them in warm water and dry them in the shade inside out, then put some baby powder on them and reuse them up to 4 times.

 

Not sure how that is realistic though, i go through like 6 pairs a day because they break so easy

Our staff use their gloves like for 2 to 3 days.  I am sure they don't go through all the cleaning process which I do not expect them to do. I wouldn't wash them that good myself.

Do you think it is a good idea using the same gloves for many days?

It's such a minor thing and the last thing they need from me is talking about how often they change gloves. but I am just curious..
