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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
