Why you should wear rubber gloves at home


https://www.gloves-online.com/

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.

Waterproof Winter Gloves – The #1 Winter Preparedness Tool


It’s been awhile since I’ve written a reminder about the essential winter activity gloves and this week’s winter storm became the cue.  The recent days order trends for winter gloves is another reminder.

My one – and now well known – prominent word about Winter Gloves: WATERPROOF! 

Most shoppers for real winter activity gloves fail to purchase Waterproof Gloves.  I’m referring to the winter gloves you wear during outdoor activities such as shoveling snow, sledding, and hiking. The same applies to winter construction and work gloves.

In conclusion, make sure your winter gloves are WATERPROOFor they will not be cold proof.

One word about Winter Gloves….

WATERPROOF!

Based on recent phone calls, I feel obliged to repeat my post from last year below:

It amazes me that most shoppers looking for a real winter glove fail to purchase Waterproof gloves. I’m not talking about fine fashion lined leather gloves; I’m referring to the winter gloves you wear during outdoor activities such as shoveling snow, sledding, skiing, or hiking. The same applies to winter construction and work gloves.

Thermal lined gloves are a must have and will keep you warm but once the lining becomes wet, your hands will freeze. Regarding linings look for a branded lining like Gore-Tex or HeatKeep just to name a few. A branded lining on the label generally indicates that the manufacturer has made an extra effort to provide warmth. You should also look for a knit wrist or a wrist closure to keep out snow, rain and wind. Lastly, make sure the gloves are WATERPROOF or they will not be cold proof.

Tip: Check out the Youngstown Winter Waterproof Gloves (Pictured). These are by far our #1 selling winter gloves every year since they were first introduced.

Pesticide Gloves

It’s that time of year for gardening and more people are planting vegetable gardens to save money. However, I was reminded to post this information while I was on vacation recently and watched the landscaper at the resort where I stayed. He was spraying dangerous pesticides (I saw the poison label on the metal container) and he wasn’t wearing protective garments including, you guessed, gloves.

You should note that dangerous liquid and dust fertilizers and pesticides WILL absorb into your skin (cutaneous absorption). Example: You may recall the Anthrax bioterrorism scare in 2001.

When using pesticides, follow the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding suitable glove material. The most functional models will be Nitrile Coated Gloves or PVC Coated Gloves which provide a broad range of chemical resistance.

The Do Not’s:

Do NOT use latex gloves for chemical protection. They will not provide the required protection.

Do NOT use cloth or leather gloves since they will absorb the pesticide liquids and dusts like your skin or become a serious source of exposure.

The Do’s:

Wear waterproof, washable gloves.

Wear durable, chemical protective gauntlet gloves which extend up the forearm.

Glove recommendations:

GO Greens LP (Liquid Proof)

GO Blues PVC

MAPA Kronit-Proof (for cut resistance)

If anyone has a question about selecting a glove using a particular chemical, send me an e-mail or give me a call and I will cross reference our reference data.
