It’s always a good idea to wear gloves when working with soils whether that be for indoor or outdoor plants.
Compost, straight from the bag, can cause skin irritations with some gardeners. Open garden soil is packed with many types of organisms that are best left in the soil and not on your skin.
They're especially useful when potting on houseplants, as there are all kinds of bacteria and pathogens that live and thrive in the soil, and create a really lovely environment for your plant, but aren't good for us if we come into contact with them.
Besides, our hands have been through enough with all the extra washing and hand sanitiser, so treat them to some TLC for your hands in glove form.
