Worn glove dilemma solved
YOUR correspondent S. M. Ng, whose letter headlined, 'A waste of household gloves' appeared in the South China Morning Post, on September 6, does not have to throw away left-hand rubber gloves that are still in good condition just because the right-hand ones have worn out. He/she should save two such gloves, then turn one of them inside out.
This will produce a perfectly serviceable, albeit odd, 'new' pair.
