thousands of homeowners trust in cleaning gloves to provide safety and cleanliness with the task at hand.  yet when the jobs done, germ and chemical contamination frequently occurs with user hand contact.
how might we reduce germ spread during the application and removal process of cleaning gloves?
research.
we interviewed three individuals with different experience using cleaning gloves.  julia works in the food industry, richard cleans his house and chase works in the medical industry.
whether these users seek gloves to work with food, cleaning chemicals or biohazards, these individuals gave us insight into the scenarios, living environments and constraints they have regarding gloves themselves. 
         
      it's a dance to get them off
      without touching them"
