We grilled out a couple of slabs of 'messy', but delicious BBQ ribs on the grill and when we were ready to get our grub on, I came up with an idea others may appreciate. I had a box of new disposable medical gloves that I gave each person a pair of. We all wore them while eating our ribs and took them off when finished - and had the cleanest hands EVER for handling ribs! I will never be without them at rib time again. Maybe fried chicken, also!

Here are several tips I have found to use latex gloves when they get a hole in them. Cut the glove fingers off and use them for several things.

I keep a decorated flower pot on my kitchen counter filled with medical exam gloves. Any time I am going to do something messy with my hands (such as breading chicken, greasing a pan with shortening, tossing a salad, cleaning a pot, etc.), I put on a pair of gloves. They are a lot less cumbersome than the rubber gloves, easy to put on and take off, and readily available.
Great for saving manicures and especially great for preventing the transmission of unwanted germs. I buy mine from an on-line medical supply company.

Use disposable rubber gloves for skinning and prepping raw chicken. If you need to answer the door or are interrupted for any reason; just peel them off and dispose of them.

Wear fingers of medical gloves to keep from snagging delicate fabrics with rough fingertips when sewing or crafting.

Everyone's in a hurry when preparing meals and cleaning up, so try using medical-type latex gloves when making meatloaf, rolling balls of cookie dough, kneading dough, etc. I don't even take off my rings, and don't have to worry about my nails. The gloves are available on the shelf in one-size-fits-all in almost any pharmacy area, in big boxes of 50 and 100 gloves. They're only a few cents each, and make it so fast to clean up when mixing things by hand or handling raw meat.
Cleaning my hands after working with oil based paint is bothersome, smelly, and dries out my skin. Now when I work with oil based paint, I always wear latex gloves and my hands are kept clean.
