Good ideas. I hadn't thought of prophylactic washing, but since I buy
by the box now it's no great problem.
I use white cotton gloves in the darkroom and keep a couple of pairs in
a photographic changing bag, which is often in the car.
Years ago, my mother had a Toyota Crown Estate - when the back axle
went, a dozen pairs of white gloves were packed with the replacement.
