If your newspaper is delivered in plastic "sleeves", save these covers. Then when you have a really messy job to do, slip a pair of them over your hands and forearms as protective "mittens"; discard when finished. Especially helpful for those of us with arthritis who struggle to put on rubber gloves.
I used to save them to keep in my son's diaper bag. They were the perfect size for bagging up a smelly diaper if we were visting a friend or relative. I could wrap it tightly, knot it closed and be able to toss it in any garbage bin without worrying that it will smell up our host's home.
