Nitrile, latex, and vinyl gloves can harbor dangerous germs upon contact and are discarded on a daily or more frequent basis – thereby polluting the planet. For many applications, we recommend our sustainably made, antimicrobial, reusable gloves, which have a much lower daily cost than disposable gloves. Studies show that 99% of any coronavirus or other pathogen that gets on these gloves will be killed within 2 hours; their extermination starts almost immediately. The glove only needs to be washed about once every 10 uses, up to 30 times, and can last for years. People can wear the gloves at work, protecting their hands from germs. Then when the gloves are removed at home, the germ-killing will continue. Within a couple of hours, the gloves will be virtually free of pathogens. The thumb and index fingertips are conductive for touchscreens. The glove fabric is treated with ViralOff Polygiene® technology. Polygiene® treated fabrics have Medical Class 1 approval, which includes bandages for open wounds.
