I recently needed to turn about fifty narrow ties (2W x by 36L) inside out and found the fabric difficult to grip. Wearing rubber gloves held the fabric and made turning go twice as fast than without.

Turn the top edge of the tube right side out and continue to slide the fabric between your thumb and index finger so the right side of the fabric is facing outward and the tie is completely turned.

Thanks for a good idea. When I had vein surgery, I realized how helpful the thin surgical gloves are, but I didn't think of this. Glad you did.

What a great idea!!!! I also have some "quilters gloves" which have a texture that would work about the same, but not be as hot since the main glove is cotton. I'm going to give this a try - Thanks! Also, love the warbler photo - what a beauty!

Wish you had posted this tip last month! Had a tube that drove me crazy...rubber gloves would have sure made it easier.
