    silly question, how do you keep coin smell out of your hands?

    I imagine most of you use gloves, but what kind works best? If you are handling a large amount of coins, the smell is bound to get trough the gloves.

    lol I wash my hands too, just thinking if I decide to handle a large amount of pennies and 1/2 dollars. Silver does smell sweet to me also

    I keep a bottle of hand sanitizer near my coin station, and a towel (or jeans). It keeps the hands clean when I need it, and I can easily clean off dirty junk silver.

    I don't know for sure if it works with coin smell, but using shaving cream on my hands and ice chest gets rid of the fish smell after fishing all weekend. Just an idea.

    If you can't handle the smell, you can't handle CRH.

    Well said! I don't use any gloves and don't plan to even when I increase my volume.

    Re: silly question, how do you keep coin smell out of your hands?

    I use latex gloves for sorting cents. When I'm done I'm always amazed at how filthy they are. Sure, I could just wash my hands instead. But if you saw how filthy these things are after handling that many coins you'd be less likely to want to rely on hand washing alone.

    Then again, I tend to believe that cents are much dirtier than halves.
