Product recommendations for painters
Do you also prefer white gloves, shoes, and clothes? Most painters do and you may have wondered why? Especially as painters nowadays paint with all the colors of the rainbow.
Therefore, painters prefer white gloves and shoes
The answer is in the history book. White became standard in the 19th century. Many color shades that we are used to now were not available for use then. White was practically the only color available for painting the interiors and exteriors of buildings at that time.
The idea of white gloves, shoes and clothes was that spills would not be visible. Then the painter looked professional and showed the customers an ability to do the job without spilling. Dark clothing would draw attention to any splashes of white. In addition, most other materials that a painter uses in the job are white: sealant, putty, plaster, and more.
The tradition of white clothing still lives on today and this is also seen in our wide range of protective gloves and safety shoes for painters. We also know that painters need thin gloves to maintain their dexterity. And stable shoes that work on construction sites and ladders.
