My very good friend, Umesh
My jeweller, who also is a darn good ring polisher uses a pair of
skin-tight gloves. Otherwise his hands would be, gnarly & with deep
cuts in the Dermis (outer layers of skin) in his fingers. If didn’t
use them, his fingers would catch all kinds of polishing dirt & cause
a multitude of infectious problems. e. g. lesions, permanent
scarring…& whatever. a. k.a.
He throws away the gloves each week, but his fingers are as clean
as if he never did any polishing. Plus no need to scrape & wash the
skin clean each time he uses his machinery. Hope that this has been
some help to you!
