Washing Instructions for White Cotton Gloves


White cotton gloves have been around for hundreds of years.  In the past white gloves were 
considered an essential part of a person’s wardrobe. Today, white gloves continue to be used for many different purposes beyond formal occasions. In any case, being white, these gloves will get soiled or dirty so we thought it would be helpful to offer some instructions due to the numerous requests we get from our customers.  
These instructions are based on our 100% White Cotton Gloves

First, inspect the gloves for any stains or spots. Our gloves can be machine washed on gentle cycle but hand washing is also sufficient. 

If stains or spots are present, prepare the gloves for washing by placing stain remover on any of the stains or spots. Rub the stain remover into the stain using a small, soft-bristled brush. Let them sit for several minutes but no longer than 10. 

Wash the gloves using cold water and use a small amount of bleach to bring out the whiteness in the gloves. It is best to wash the gloves by themselves. Washing gloves with other clothing increases the chance you might lose a glove or damage them. Never pour bleach directly onto a glove. This can damage the fabric and stitching. Always dilute the bleach in water. 

You can machine dry the gloves using a cool dryer temperature but it is best drip dry or lay them flat to dry. 

Note: Cotton gloves will shrink if washed in hot water or dried using a hot temperature.

Your Bionic Glove Headquarters at Gloves-Online


Over a year ago, we introduced the new Bionic Golf Gloves. Today, we now stock and sell over 14 different Bionic Men’s and Women’s glove models which include the driving, golf, gardening, fitness, and motorcycle gloves. 

Gloves backed by science. Designed by a leading orthopedic hand surgeon, Bionic technology is totally unique in the marketplace. There is nothing like it. The difference is found in the design based on the anatomy of the hand and the science of ergonomics. 
Notable examples are anatomical relief pads, pre-rotated finger design, and web and motion zones. For those with arthritis, I suggest you purchase the “Relief” brand of golf and garden gloves. 
See our Bionic Gloves Lineup: Link to Bionic Glove Lineup
For a bit of trivia, these gloves are made by Hillerich & Bradsby – the 120 year old company famous for making the legendary Louisville Slugger bats.

Hand protection: More than a matter of sizing


In 2008, I wrote an article about Hand Protection for ISHN (Industrial Safety & Hygiene News), the foremost industrial safety publication for safety engineers and managers. 
Surprisingly, not much has changed since I wrote this article so I thought it would be worthwhile to post it here for others looking for this type of information. This way it will be permanently archived as well. 
It should be noted that this article is focused on one type of industrial work glove – Coated Gloves – which are the most popular gloves used today in industrial and manufacturing industries. 
You can link to the article at this link which is a printable PDF file: Hand Protection
By the way, if you don’t already receive ISHN, I suggest you go to their link at the top of this post and see about subscribing. It’s a good monthly periodical focused on safety products. 
If anyone has any questions or need any assistance on glove advice, please feel free to contact me. 

2,622 Gloves and counting



What does this glove number mean to you?
Well, this week, my accounting manager (our numbers person), reminded me that we have over 2,622 Glove models in our warehouse.  I smiled and reminisced about our humble beginnings when we started with a small number of white cotton gloves models over 17 years ago.  Today, we claim to be the largest white glovesource in North America. Maybe the world, but who cares anyway – except me. 
I really doubt “any” glove company has 2,622 glove models on the shelf – available for delivery the same day or the next day. This is important to you, our customer. 
One of my favorite sayings is: “If you cannot find a particular glove at Gloves-Online then it is likely not worth selling or available.”  
Additionally, we are resellers for some of the most respected glove manufacturers on the planet. 
By the way, when I shared this number with our warehouse manager, David, he looked up through our ceiling-high warehouse shelving racks and said, “We are out of space – again.”  
Simply put, we want to be your glove source. After all, we are pretty good at it since we’ve been supplying gloves to thousands of customers since 1996. 

Need some Green Gloves for St. Patrick’s Day?


If you need some Green Gloves for St. Patrick’s Day it’s still not too late.You will just have to pay a little extra for shipping depending on where you live. 
 
Our Green Flash Gloves are popular this time of year for St. Patrick Day parades and parties.  We carry them in both Men’s and Women’s sizes and I provided links below to make it easy for you to find them rather than search our huge selection of gloves. 
As an FYI, our special search function (yellow box) on our web site will find them too but then you will see each and every green glove we carry which can be overwhelming. 
It is worth mentioning that we also stock parade style gloves in many colors just in case you need something special for Easter. 
P.S. Don’t forget those white gloves either – for Easter Sunday. 
Happy St. Patties Day, the Glove Guru 

The Glove-Guru Blog versus Facebook


First let me “share” that we just created a new Facebook Page for Gloves-Online.com. (Link Below)
 
Yes, we all know that Facebook use has reached absolutely absurd numbers and receives more than 2.7 billion “likes” each day and accounts for 1 of every 5 pages views on the net. 
However, a “dynamic website” which incorporates a blog forms the foundation of all social media marketing. My Blog website is where my glove content is published and ultimately where the conversions happen. 
It’s not that I think that Blogging is better than Facebook but I think the two should work hand in hand. (Pun intended) 
Want to know my main reasons for using in keeping the Glove-Guru Blog alive? 
Stability: No frustrating changes to deal with (Facebook changes are fast and furious) and my blog is self-hosted, stable, consistent and dependable. 
SEO: When done right, blogging improves my search ranking through in-bound links & key-word optimization. Facebook doesn’t contribute to search ranking, FB “only” leads to traffic to my content and our gloves. Plus my blog is part and parcel to our main web site.
Long Shelf Life: My glove blog articles have a long shelf life because they last for years. FB updates only last a few days at most. 
News Feed: FB decides who uses my updates but on my blog anyone and everyone can see my content and glove news. 
Content Hub: My blog is the hub of my glove content. FB only helps me distribute and promote my content and glove news. 
My blog offers more value via helpful tips, advice, and glove education. A compelling link on my blog will most likely get clicked rather than ignored on a FB page. Plus my glove news stays on my blog for years and has remained on my blog since 2008. 
Reach Multiple Audiences: My blog includes RSS email feeds to my subscribers, site visitors, and all social networks. On Facebook I can only reach the people that ‘like” my page. 
So, this week I taught my Glove-Guru Blog to talk to our Gloves-Online Facebook page so everyone and anyone can decide what they “like” better. By the way, it wouldn’t hurt to “like” us on FB if you like us.

The good news for you and for us is that Black & Decker is developing new and beneficial work gloves for the consumer and industrial users.  
This new line of gloves is part and parcel to our addition of the DeWalt line of gloves(DeWalt is a division of Black & Decker) which I announced here in December.

It’s also designed for both men and women. More news on that is coming in days since giving you a peek now takes away all the fun and excitement.
