Dyeing Clothing

When using a deep indigo dye to re-colour an old jean skirt, it isn't enough to just WEAR rubber gloves, you should also put rubber bands around the end of the gloves to keep them nice and closed around your forearms. This extra little step will protect your skin and hands, should you accidentally plunge your hands too far into the dye bath whilst kneading the dye through the fabric.
And dare I say, "'re turning violet!"
