Even if you don't mind getting your hands dirty now and then, some tasks involve harsh and dangerous chemicals you should probably avoid contact with. And while it doesn't guarantee you won't catch a whiff of a fume here or there, the Glove Bucket does provide a simple and safe way to keep harsh cleaning agents off your skin.
It looks like your standard, square, 20-litre plastic bucket. But you'll find holes cut into two sides that are sealed with a pair of thick rubber gloves, and a removable clear plastic lid letting you peek inside. So like Homer handling that uranium rod in The Simpsons intro, you can safely work with chemicals or other materials you'd rather not touch with your bare hands. Just don't even think about handling radioactive materials with it — there's no way a $US50 plastic bucket will keep you safe. [Glove Bucket via Gizmag via Bicycle Times]
