Dishwashing Gloves

Are Dishwashing Gloves Waterproof?

Most dishwashing gloves are made from latex, vinyl, or nitrile, so the answer would be yes, absolutely. Your dishwashing gloves will perform well in keeping your hands dry and clean when encountering water or most water-based material. However, with latex gloves, you should keep them away from oil since it will destroy the latex fiber, causing it to wear out faster. Nitrile gloves are more durable with chemical resistance compared to other materials. But generally, they’re all waterproof.

Are Dishwashing Gloves Food Safe?

Actually, it depends a lot on the manufacturer. Some nitrile gloves actually have HACCP Certified, so they’re entirely food safe. Meanwhile, most latex gloves don’t have these certificates since they’re proven to leave the latex protein on food.

Ensure that you’ve checked it well on the packaging, food-safety gloves often have the certificate stamp or piece of information right on its packaging. If you’re not sure they’re food-safe or not, do not use them until you’ve had the confirmation from the manufacturer.

When it comes to those rubber or PVC gloves, some might think that it’s unnecessary. However, we’ll prove the absolute opposite. Wearing gloves is the best thing you could do to your hands.

Gloves protect: The most significant benefit that makes us say yes to the gloves is that they protect our hands from chemicals, soap, detergent. A good pair of gloves also keep you away from cuts or burns you might run into when doing the chores. And if you have to encounter any harsh chemicals while cleaning up, your gloves will be the best armor.

One bonus advantage for dishwashing gloves is it helps to save your money. You’re wondering how could that be, right? But actually, when you don’t have to keep replacing your broken dishes and bowls, you’re saving a lot of money. Thus you won’t have to spend more bucks in hand cream and hand products.
