I heard that using gloves is not a very good option becoz u need to shake hand after the encounter and ur hands are full of powder, ultimately u have to have ur hand washed to shake with SP.is it? suggest me plz, i have exam soon...

I used the gloves during my exam, that saved time, no problem with powder or anything else. But if you want to wash hands, that also fine.
