I want to comment on two topics here.
I generally didn't wear gloves unless I knew I was working with something I did not want to have contact with. I usually wore the heavy neoprene gloves.
There are days when I wear the same pair of gloves for 4-5 hours, and sometimes only 4-5 minutes.
I never liked working with anyone who wore gloves. The quote explains why. If the people wearing gloves discarded them every 5 minutes I might feel differently. I really don't like touching chemicals. I really really really don't like touching your chemicals. Take those gloves off and throw them away when you complete your transfers please. That little bit that you don't mind getting on your gloves, I do.
I like the feedback of knowing that I may have inadvertently contacted something. I wash my hands. We are not talking about the conc sulfuric here, I have my gloves on for that one.
It is a pet peeve of mine to see student touch their chemicals with their gloved fingers. I make them throw the gloves away and tell them to not touch anything. You know when they touch something, they are just going to spread it around. I am a forceps and spatula (and funnel) person. Let's keep those chemical away.
I am okay with some form of warning labels, but if I were a manufacturer and wanted to avoid a law suit, I would take extreme measures to warn you about the hazards of the chemical, even if it were an item commonly found in foods. Any of you chemophobes had any alcohol or mind altering drugs?
My preferred source for toxicity is the Merck Index. I like to learn about risks from actual studies. I want to know if I am in the possession of a chemical that can kill everyone in the lab or something that at worst has an unpleasant smell (that is any smell at all). I don't feel I know that kind of crucial information from reading the MSDS.
Lest everyone think I am a careless slob working in a chemistry lab, I have since retired from it. I worked in a synthesis lab for over 25 years. I kept everything in the hood. I know how to weigh out really noxious samples without your even being able to detect my having do so. I love those Luer-lock syringes.
So, check the toxicity data for dichloromethane. While you are at it, check chloroform as well. Also, while you are checking, how much are you breathing in (what I worried the most about) or do you have a gas mask on as well? (It is so ironic to see my chemophobic colleagues outside on a cigarette break.)
