I'm taking a 2 week molecular biology lab intensive course that keeps me in laxtex gloves for about 6-7 hours a day. It's only the second day of classes and my hands have a fowl laxtex smell that I just can't get rid of. Soaps, lotions, detergents, sanitizers, nothing will kill this smell. I don't know how people working in labs everyday can stand it! It reminds me of the dentist and make me feel ill. Bleh.
