when to wear gloves?

I see a lot of people wearing laboratory gloves while typing on the keyboard operating the NMR spectrometer.

This appears to be a good thing – why not be super-careful and wear gloves routinely in a lab environment or when touching something which comes out of a lab environement?

But keep in mind – while you protect yourself you might also be transferring toxic residues to places, which are touched by other people, for instance a computer keyboard.

Therefore, pls do not wear gloves while operating the NMR console. If you feel that you have to wear gloves (for instance due to an allergy), please change to a fresh pair prior to typing on the keyboard.
