Catering Gloves have always been a large part of our business for many years.
Customers have often bought what they liked but had to scroll through our vast listings to find the models they desired.
In order to make it easier, we’ve now added a new quick search link on our Home Page in our left hand navigation panel. We’ve even made it simple by breaking the options in the drop down menu down to two preferences.
Both links include the most popular glove models used by food servers including our popular dotted palm models which grasp plates without slippage and speed up serving time.
The same gloves have always been listed under our Food Service Glove category under General Purpose gloves in our navigation links and that category also includes other gloves such as cut resistant and disposable gloves that are used in the food service industry.
Dish washing is a pretty mundane chore, but many choose to do it with bare hands. However there are a numerous reasons why it’s not a good idea. Here are a few reasons why you should slip on a pair of rubber gloves before you pick up a scrubbing brush.
First, I’m not necessarily talking about medical type disposable gloves although they will work. I’m talking about a more robust pair of rubber gloves since they will last a very long time and be more comfortable and easier to slip on and remove. Plus, they are more durable and can be used for other house chores. At the end of this brief, I will list the gloves my better-half simply loves to use.
1. You’ll use hotter water
Rubber gloves give you some protection from heat so you can run the water nice and hot. The warmer the water, the easier it is to clean.
2. Your hands won’t dry out
Immersing your hands in warm water daily has an impact on your skin. Gloves protect your hands.
5. Protection from sharps
While they don’t give you 100 per cent protection, gloves offer some coverage when you’re dealing with broken plates, glass, and sharp utensils.
6. You’ll have better grip
Gloves help you keep a steady hold on your plates and cutlery.

As most of you know, Penn State is now #2 in the National Rankings this week going against #19 Michigan at home on Saturday.
Saturday, Penn State is having another one of their famous “White Out” games and I hope those Penn State fans buy more White Gloves from us to make things even whiter and warmer.
We are Penn State!!!!!!
For years we have served the food service and hospitality industry with our popular white cotton gloves which are widely used by waiters and waitresses.
This past year, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in sales to the same customers for black gloves. I’m told that this is due to cost savings since the black gloves generally hide any staining from the food and still look elegant.
Our black cotton models come in standard versions and dotted versions for gripping and are available in wrist length and 12” length. All are unisex sized.
See link below for our whole line up of Food Service Gloves.
Animal & Raptor Handling Gloves
I’m proud to introduce new gloves specifically designed for animal handling. They were made by popular demand by Caiman Gloves, one the leading welding glove manufacturers in the USA.
What they did was modify their popular 21” welding glove and added extra protection that a welder wouldn’t require. The main additions are a Triple-Layered Cuff and added reinforcements in the fingers and palm.
The popularity of the Caiman gloves are their patented designs specifically involving mimicking the natural curvature of the hands for added comfort.
Besides being a high-quality, long-life, durable glove, they offer a price that is half the price of other animal handling gloves available.
See our listing for more features and benefits on these gloves.

The European Standard for Protective Gloves, EN 388, was updated on November 2, 2016 and is now in the process of being ratified by each member country. Glove manufacturers selling in Europe, have two years to comply with the new EN 388 2016 standard. Regardless of this allotted adjustment period, many leading manufacturers will immediately start using revised markings on gloves. Therefore, we thought it would be wise to provide this information now to help avoid any confusion.
The good thing is that the new markings will include the old markings with the added two new testing results added at the end for the new TDM-100 Cut test and the new Impact Protection test.
Unless someone can convince me otherwise, I have found that the old EN 388 standard and markings provided an excellent guide for our customers in the USA. However, for the sake of proper technical information I have provided both markings as a guide.
As far as impact protection (the last letter), it is a simple P for Passed; F for Failed; or X for Not Tested.
Effective this week, all pages and links on GO Gloveshave been completely encrypted with the new HTTPS protocol. This also includes our Industrial Glove web site.
Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure’. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.
Although our web site has been encrypted for years, we have now converted to the new (HTTPS) standard which is becoming the new safe benchmark for the increase in mobile transactions. With this implementation you will now see a lock box on your browser link and this is something you want to look for on all web sites where you shop.
We thank you for your support and your business and we look forward to a successful 2017.
The FDA has determined that powdered surgeon’s gloves, powdered patient examination gloves, and absorbable powder for lubricating a surgeon’s glove present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury and that the risk cannot be corrected or eliminated by labeling or a change in labeling.
Consequently, the FDA is banning these devices.
I noticed that the rule was proposed back in March but it was officially ruled on today and becomes effective on January 18, 2017.
As many already know, the GO Standard Cotton Parade gloves are our most popular white cotton gloves for their high quality, simplicity, and low price. Additionally, we make them in many sizes from toddler children ages (0-3) to Men’s XXL.
Often customers call about sizing questions. To address this issue, we made a chart to help assist in determining which size is best for you. We also added the chart to the product listing to make it more convenient for you.
Is there a difference? The answer is a simple NO!
Frankly speaking, they are the same type of glove. However, on our web site we have two category listings. One for Cell Phone Gloves; and one for Touch Screen Gloves. This simply reflects how long we’ve been around and how long we’ve been selling Cell Phone Gloves.
You see, when we initially introduced Cell Phone Gloves to you back in 2008, there was no such thing as a Touch Screen cell phone. Hence the category name Cell Phone Gloves. These gloves were convertible type gloves where you could remove the fingertip to touch the buttons on the phone. Actually, these are still very popular today.
Then, and shortly afterwards, along came the Touch Screen cell phone and that lead to the introduction of the conductive fibers and polymers commonly found in the Touch Screen Gloves. This allowed new types of Touch Screen Gloves such as leather gloves and even some coated work gloves.
So, and in conclusion, if you are searching our web site, the same gloves are included in each category so don’t be confused. It’s actually helps your preferred search engine when you find us.
In that effort, we’ll keep our two categories just in case.
