I clean drains day in and day out, from condensates to resi mains to grease lines at rest. and so on, been doing it for quite a while now and I've always wondered if there was anything I could do to make my gloves last longer. I typically use double palm leather gloves but right now I'm using the gauntlet style leather gloves with metal staples thru out. I only have one pair left and I'm trying to get rid of them being they aren't as comfortable as the double palm style. I will say this staple style has lasted 3 times as long though. I've thought of using mink oil before and some guys have told me baseball glove oil works good and some guys have told me not to waste my time givin what the gloves handle day in and day out. I do have a couple pair of the ugly gloves I need to start using, anybody know how good those are as far as grip is concerned and how long they usually last. Another question, does flipping the cable around in the drum or basket every couple of weeks lengthen the life of the cable or wear it out faster? I typically go thru two main line cables a year and probably three 3/8 cables a year and that is not flipping them. I also tend to go a while before I pick up more snake oil, what else would work in the mean time? I had one guy tell me diesel fuel and another guy tell me non-detergent oil is the same as snake oil. Any suggestions on any of these questions would be greatly appreciated.

This might be a silly question
