I spent some long overdue time in the tank this weekend and it reminded me of a poll another member suggested. I've tried to live by the rule of keeping my hands out of the tank, but when I do have to, I've always taken the time to scrub my hands and arms with dish soap and water prior to putting them in the tank. The question is do others do the same or do they just go at it. Do others were gloves? So let's see what the general consensus is with hands in the tank.
