What is the difference with powdered or powder free gloves?

Powder, mostly cornstarch, makes it easier to put on a glove (called “donning”). Furthermore, powder is used in the manufacturing process to avoid gloves sticking together. The demand for powdered gloves is declining since the powder is linked to spreading allergy and causing infections. Powdered gloves are less expensive to manufacture.

Most international norms specify the levels of powder or the acceptable residue.

Due to the fact that gloves without powder are sticky and/or tacky it is difficult to don. In order to overcome this problem manufacturing works with alternative production methods/ donning agents, mostly single sided or double sided chlorination or the use of a polymer coating.

Chlorination is a treatment that normally involves a proces whereby gloves are treated with a chlorine solution. After chlorination the gloves are rinsed with fresh water and subsequently dryed. The amount of chlorine used in this proces effects donning and tackiness. Also the amount of protein is reduced by chlorination although not to unquantifiable levels.

Gloves are double sided chlorinated when the gloves are also chlorinated on the work surface.

How to put on glove?


Choose the proper glove size

The gloves should fit but not be too tight or too loose. Gloves that are too small can easily rip and feel uncomfortable and gloves that are too big will make it hard to perform a task.
*Sizes normally start at 5.5 and go up by increments of .5 until size 9. The average size is 7.5.

Remove jewelry

Having a ring, watch, or bracelet on while wearing sterile gloves will contaminate the glove and also presents a risk of ripping the glove and/or getting in the way of the task.

Wash your hands

Use the proper medical technique to wash your hands.

Stand up

It is important to stay standing the entire time to avoid contamination.
*Standing will help keep your arms above your waist.
*Anything below your waist is considered contaminated.

Open the sterile glove package

Open the sterile glove package on a sterile, flat surface to prevent contamination of the gloves
*Peel the corner of the package until the sterile paper wrapper, which contains the gloves, falls out. Let the sterile paper wrapper drop on the sterile surface.
*Discard or set aside the packaging the sterile paper wrapper was inside.You do not need it anymore.

Pull the sterile glove wrapper open like a book

Do not touch the one inch folds yet.

Open the sterile paper wrapper using the one inch folds

Caution: Everything is sterile except for the one inch folds.
*Turn the sterile paper so it is in front of you. The L and R symbols should be facing you.
*The paper wrapper is sterile except for one inch (2.5cm) all around the edges.
*Using the one inch non-sterile field, open the paper wrapper all the way. You should now see two gloves in the middle of the sterile field. The tops of both gloves are turned down to form a cuff.

Grab the first glove.

Caution: Do not touch the outside of the glove with your ungloved hand. Keep your hands above your waist at all times.
*Using your non-dominant hand, grasp the glove for the dominant hand by the fold of the cuff using your fingers.
*Most people use their thumb and index finger to grasp the glove.

Step back and pull the glove onto your dominate hand

Allow the cuff to stay turned back on itself for now.

Grab the second glove.

Caution: Do not touch the inside of the cuff with your gloved hand because that area is not sterile.
*Using your dominant hand which now has the glove on, place your fingers under the cuff of the other glove.

Insert your non-dominant hand into the glove.

Caution: Remember to keep your hands above your waist and do not touch the inside of the second glove with your already gloved hand.
*Ease the glove on by pushing on the inside fold of the cuff.
*Turn back the cuff.

Smooth the gloves out.

*Turn back the cuff of your first glove without touching the inside of your glove.
*Use your gloved hands to adjust the gloves to a comfortable position.

Check the gloves for rips.

Turn your hand and look to see if there are any visible rips or tears.
*If you see a tear, a new pair of gloves must be applied.
