1910.1030(d)(3)(ix)(C)
"Utility gloves may be decontaminated for re-use if the integrity of the glove is not compromised. However, they must be discarded if they are cracked, peeling, torn, punctured, or exhibit other signs of deterioration or when their ability to function as a barrier is compromised."

"OSHA believes 'Decontamination', by definition, stipulates that the item must be safe for handling, use, or disposal...Contamination migration is minimized since the standard requires that gloves are to be removed upon leaving the work area and that employees must wash their hands after glove removal."
