What's Your Best Vinyl Glove For Practical Daily Uses

 When it comes to vinyl gloves, there are numerous options available to you, and sometimes it is difficult to decide which particular glove is appropriate for you job. Vinyl gloves can be used in virtually any application or situation. The following article will outline some basic facts and guidelines about Vinyl Gloves that will make your selection process much easier.

There are two Main Categories of Vinyl Gloves

Vinyl gloves come in two main categories: industrial and exam grade. Industrial grade vinyl gloves are typically use in “light-duty” industrial applications and situations where miild household cleaners, raw meat, or hair dye is handled. These applications require protection against non-hazardous chemicals or materials.

Industrial Glove Applications for Vinyl Gloves: plumbing, painting, food service, food processing, beauty salon, and janitorial or sanitation, agriculture, child care, first aid, arts and crafts.

Exam or medical grade vinyl gloves are best for situations that require a higher level AQL (Acceptable Quality Level) They must have less chance of developing pinholes than their industrial counterpart. They generally are more durable and provide protection against pathogens found in blood or bodily fluids. Gloves that are in this category must pass a rigorous set of testing and safety requirements from the FDA. Vinyl exam gloves typically have a looser fit and feel as compared to latex or nitrile gloves.

Exam or Medical Grade Application: child care, Dental, agriculture, janitorial, medical, senior care.

Size and Color

Vinyl gloves do fit looser than other disposable gloves such as nitrile and latex, so keep this in mind when determining your glove size. You still want your glove to fit close to your hand, without too much extra material bunching up.

Vinyl gloves come in a variety of colors, which can act as more than just a fashion statement. Using a variety of colors in your application can help differentiate glove size, or help to minimize cross contamination.

Clear Vinyl:

These gloves are ideal for use in safety and hygiene applications, because you can easily see when gloves are dirty and need to be changed.

Ivory or Cream Colored Vinyl Gloves: These are also referred to as stretch vinyl and generally are more durable and stretch than standard clear vinyl. This color of vinyl offers wearers the appearance and feel of Disposable Latex Gloves without the risk of allergies. They are formulated to be more elastic and stretchy like latex.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
