Return of the latex exam glove?

Post by herpderp12345 » Sat Feb 09, 2019 4:16 pm

As you can probably relate, I'm always instantly identifying types of gloves when I'm out in the world.

It feels like 5, 10 years ago everything was switching to nitrile/vinyl from dentists to doctors to restaurants.

But suddenly, I swear latex is everywhere again. Has anyone else noticed this, too? I wonder what the explanation would be.

Not complaining :up:

Nitrile turned out to have negative effects for people as well after a while.
Vinyl´s tactility :lmao:
compose intricate posts somewhere else to not sorta "memory hole" them (when losing connection after hitting submit).

Hmmmm...hasn’t caught in here in Atlanta yet, I’ve been to several doctors and they all have Nitrile still. I will look more closely as I have doctors visits in best two weeks
