Today’s offering is a yellow rubber glove, left partially on the front doormat and partially on the paving stones. There are three stain types – the most extensive is a rusty-red substance present on all fingers (including thumb), but mainly on the palm area. A dark charcoaly smear also appears towards the ends of the fingers. Just visible in the photo is the third stain type, prevalent around the wrist as continuous lighter areas. It is unclear whether this is a substance itself or simply the action of a lightening agent, such as bleach, on the glove material. Perhaps the most interesting feature of this glove, however, is the large split, which extends halfway around the wrist circumference.
Orientation: Left hand
Cleanliness: 6 (moderate staining)
