Really, the more important question is, if the lab is unwilling to provide
PPE in this case, where else are they lacking in looking after your safety?
I've never heard of using xylene without gloves (nitrile or latex).  The
EH&S department here at Pitt (academic research) would explode with horror
if they found out someone was not using PPE with xylene.  You need
something, at least.  Better safe than sorry.


The whole point of this country is if you want to eat garbage, balloon up
to 600 pounds and die of a heart attack at 43, you can! You are free to do
so. To me, that’s beautiful.
