Gloves dipped in glue then dipped in sharp sand, carborundum or industrial diamonds.

After drying, the gloves allow you to sand and smooth those difficult and tedious wooden objects.

With Rubber-Gloves you can feel your way round that front door, the banisters, the garden shed, the fence, that exotic wooden sculpture that's going on the mantlepiece. Now you can spend luscious hours without labouring, caressing instead of cursing; feel your way to perfect wood - the end result is smooth and your hands don't ache.

As an extra bonus, you can peel the potatoes without getting that nasty cramp in your hand the potato peeler often brings on.

To rub (read: sand) ones leg hair away [madradish, Sep 02 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       Believe it or not, this is semi baked with an application you wouldn't believe. Silkymit is essentially a loop of sandpaper that fits over a hand. You use it to remove hair from your legs! I kid you not (see link).

       Aren't these what Mr Friction and his trusty sidekick the Boy Eraser wear?

       The diamonds could get a little expensive, but otherwise a perfectly sane idea. I'd rename this idea, though, to include the sanding part. Perhaps something like "Sanding Gloves"?

       [madradish], I've actually tried a similar product, but of course it was too good to be true. It was so much work, I reverted back to shaving. Why would people want to sand their skin anyway?

       Good in a fight, too.
