Disposable gloves are regularly worn in care and medical environments to prevent the spread of infection.

If someone is wearing gloves it’s vital they know the protection they offer and understand the importance of

using and removing them correctly.

Can gloves protect someone in public?

Disposable gloves can reduce the spread of infection and protect someone who is going out in public by keeping

their hands clean, dry and germ free. If someone chooses to wear gloves in public it is vital they do not touch

their face, phone or any surfaces they do not need to and remove the gloves correctly. As disposable gloves are

subject to single use, a box of gloves is ideal if required on multiple occasions. The disposable nitrile

gloves are provided in a box of 100 and are of a soft yet textured material for improved grip. These gloves are

also powder free, to prevent dust contamination and are non-allergenic due to their latex-free material.

It is important to take hand sanitiser gel when going out and about, even when wearing gloves, as hands must be

sanitised immediately after removing the gloves. In the unlikely event where a glove does break, hand sanitiser

can also offer an immediate alternative to protect the hands.

Know how to correctly remove disposable gloves
Disposable gloves must be used and removed correctly to offer protection and prevent the spread of infection.

Below is a quick guide on how to correctly remove disposable gloves:

1.Removing the first glove:

Pinch the outside of the glove near the wrist and be sure not to touch the bare skin. Peel back the glove

taking care not to touch the now free hand.

2.Removing the second glove:

Keep the removed glove held in the gloved hand and do not touch the outside of either glove with the free

hand. Instead tuck the fingers inside the glove still on the other hand and turn it inside out. The second

glove will be over the first and they should be disposed of immediately.

After gloves have been disposed, the person’s hands should be cleaned immediately with soap and water or

sanitiser, if washing is unavailable.

Choose the right size to get the best protection

Disposable gloves, such as the box of 100 disposable gloves, are also available in different sizes from

small to extra-large. Choosing the right size glove is vital to ensure the person wearing them is comfortable

and not at risk to exposing their hands. A loose-fitting glove runs the risk of falling down and a tight-

fitting glove may be at a higher risk of breaking.

How are gloves used in a healthcare setting?

Many types of personal protective equipment (PPE), including

disposable aprons and gloves, are used in medical

or care settings to reduce the spread of infection between healthcare workers and patients. Disposable gloves

are appropriate for single use and are worn when someone is providing direct care to a patient, especially if

they will be exposed to bodily fluids. After each procedure, or contact with a patient, the gloves will be

removed and disposed of and the person will need to wash or sanitise their hands.


What is a disposable bib?

A disposable bib is a cloth or tissue portion with PE backing that is mainly used to avoid water, food, and

other substances spilling on the user’s clothes. Although bibs are usually associated with babies, it is

interesting to know that they are used by adults as well. Bibs are an important part of a baby’s accessories

and daily routine but it’s a common scenario that adults including sick and old people often need

disposable bibs for helping and supporting them in

their regular activities.

Applications of disposable bibs

1.Dental clinics

Dental disposable bibs are used as a preliminary barrier against stains and contamination. They are used to

protect both dentists and patients from spills and stains during dental procedures. Therefore, even if

something is spilled on the patient’s chest, the bib protects their clothing. Dental disposable bib is

typically made of two layers; the top paper layer absorbs any type of spills and the bottom layer of plastic

prevents liquids from penetrating the disposable bib.Dental disposable bibs are available as individually

packaged bibs, pre-cut bib rolls, or as bib napkins.


The other common area where disposable bibs are prominently used is in the hospitality industry,

particularly hotels and restaurants. They are particularly necessary for restaurants that serve seafood such as

lobsters, crawdads, slippery ribs and crabs. These foods often result in getting the hands dirty and wearing a

disposable bib while eating can help you stop worrying about soiling your clothes. Therefore, you can “dig in

” to your food without worrying about the possibility of messing up. It is important to note that even the

most coordinated people sometimes get stains or spots while eating.

3.Hospitals and nursing homes: the elderly and disabled

Disability, injury or illness can make it hard for patients to control their limbs especially the fingers

and hands. This is where grown-ups come into play. Bibs are also very prominent and necessary especially in

restaurants that serve seafood.

However, you should note that drooling is part of your baby’s normal growth. Disposable Baby Bibs have proven

to be quite important when babies start teething. Disposable baby bib can preserve your baby’s clothes from

the wash cycle until its necessary.
