    I put on nitrile gloves and a 3 layer mask when leaving home. Mask is a requirement in public places in my State. Some years ago I had picked up a hand sanitizer pen from a dollar store I kept it in the car. Now I put it in my pocket when leaving the car - use the gel to sanitize the shopping cart handle. Use it again on my gloved hands after returning to the car before touching the insides.

    You would probably be better off discarding the gloves, rather than sanitizing them after use. Then sanitize your hands. Then get in the car.

    Absolutely. You should never move gloves from one location (the store) to another (your car.) Dispose of them. Put on a fresh set if desired.

    Gloves are superfluous. Unless, there’s blood and body parts involved. Or open cuts and wounds.

    before and after Contacting the myriad of surfaces. Wash & disinfect. Intact epidermis is pretty darned good.

    Gloves work perfectly when you're out in a location where washing or disinfecting is not available. Just discard them after touching a suspect surface.

    I've discovered a great use for the blue bags the NY Times is delivered in. I bring one to the store with the other gear, and when I take off the gloves I drop them in the bag. The bag goes into the nearest trash pail.
