I understand the Urushiol oil from the poison ivy plant will stay on gloves and other surfaces for years. My question is, will the oil go through my leather gloves and onto my hands? I bought a pair of gauntlet goves - the ones that cover all the way to your elbows - but they're all leather. Do I need to use rubber gloves instead?
