Idea Exchange: Double glove to ensure no smell lingers on your fingers

I double glove when expressing anal glands. After I finish with the squeezing part, I take off the first glove. Then I clean the patient's bottom with a Wet Ones (Energizer) hand wipe and spray with cherry blossom perfume. Once completely finished, I take the second glove off. My bare hands are still clean.
