LATEX VS NITRILE VS VINYL GLOVES…WHICH TO CHOOSE?
by B4 Brands
When deciding between latex, nitrile and vinyl gloves…it can be a little confusing trying to determine which type of glove is the ideal choice. Let’s take a closer look at the attributes and benefits of each type of glove.
Latex gloves are natural material, made out of rubber. They are a popular choice of protective glove for medical or industrial use. The primary reason people would choose an alternative to latex is because many people suffer from latex allergies. When allergy is not a concern, latex does have a slight advantage with comfort and dexterity over nitrile gloves.
Fit like a second skin
Have a high level of touch sensitivity
Are good for wearing for an extended amount of time
Work well for high-risk situations involving infectious material
Are lightly powdered, making it easier to put on
Are very elastic and strong
Nitrile gloves are made out of a synthetic rubber, and are an ideal alternative when latex allergies are of concern. Nitrile gloves are the superior glove when it comes to puncture resistance. Nitrile gloves are often referred to as “medical grade.” Before gloves can be marketed to hospitals and medical institutions, they must undergo a series of tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure their durability.
Are most puncture resistant
Have a high level of sensitivity
Mold to your hand for a great fit
Are good for wearing an extended amount of time
Work well for high-risk situations involving infectious material
Resist many chemicals
Have a long shelf life
Are available in blue or black to help identify if the glove has been punctured
Vinyl gloves are a popular choice for the food industry and situations where high levels of durability and protection are less of a priority. While they may be less durable, they are the less expensive option.
Have a looser fit
Are good for short-term, low-risk tasks
Are the most economic option
Have anti-static properties
Are best for use with non-hazardous materials
Are lightly powdered to make it easier to put on
So, when it comes time to decide which type of protective glove is the right choice for you, the most important thing to consider is….how much protection do you need?

WHY WEAR A FACE MASK IN PUBLIC?
Here’s what the research shows
By Hector Chapa - April 8, 2020
With the coronavirus pandemic quickly spreading, U.S. health officials have changed their advice on face masks and now recommend people wear cloth masks in public areas where social distancing can be difficult, such as grocery stores.
But can these masks be effective?
President Donald Trump, in announcing the change in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance on April 3, stressed that the recommendation was voluntary and said he probably wouldn’t follow it. Governors and mayors, however, have started encouraging the precautions to reduce the spread of the virus by people who might not know they are infected.
Some cities have gone as far as setting fines for failing to wear a mask. In Laredo, Texas, anyone over the age of five who walks into a store or takes public transit without their mouth and nose covered by a mask or bandana could now be fined up to $1,000.
These new measures are designed to “flatten the curve,” or slow the spread of the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19.
ALL ABOUT CLEANSING WIPES
Which to choose?
Cleansing wipes and disposable bathing cloths are essentials in any caregivers toolkit. These wipes tend to be more compact in size, and are used to clean up perineal areas – these wipes typically are Ph neutral or have moisturizers or emollients to preserve fragile skin in sensitive areas.
We divide cleansing wipes into two categories: disposable wipes and flushable wipes. Disposable wipes tend to be stronger (no fingers punching through) but must be disposed into the trash – and used wipes in trash receptacles can emit offensive odors.
Flushable wipes are actual DISPERSIBLE wipes– which means these wipes breakdown and disintegrate in the plumbing cycle. Flushable (but not dispersible wipes) are the bane of every municipal sewage system and are actually banned for use in many major cities. Flushable (dispersible) wipes tend to not be as strong, but ARE flushable and that cuts down on trash and odors.
Bathing wipes and disposable washcloths are typically larger in size and are ideal for use on immobile patients and loved ones as an alternative to bathing or showering. Washcloths can be used all over the body and are not limited to use in perineal areas only. Check out our cleansing wipes selection in our shop today.
