Well, I don't sweat the tongs myself. If I'm doing tray development I just use my fingers. Nitrile gloves help if you don't mind using them. Personally, I don't bother. I've been doing this for a number of years (more than I'd care to admit) and never had a problem using conventional MQ and PQ developers. If I were using pyro I'd reconsider using the gloves.
