    That's funny-there are pink gloves. Is that what you really were looking for Joe?

    Exam gloves, unlike sterile surgical gloves, are not sized for right/left. Vinyl is usually the cheapest, while latex may also be close, but not recommended for routine use (high risk for causing latex allergy long-term). Nitrile gloves are a good alternative to latex, but expensive.

    We get my mother's gloves at Costco, which appears to be the cheapest.

    We can ask Dr. Young to put a sticky for "Supply bargains" in the Equipment forum (like the one for kids equipment). I don't think it belongs in the Care forum.

    Agreed. I just know that I'll need "best price for magic bullets" very soon and wouldn't know where to look - any sticky is a good sticky.

    Sorry I didn't get that you were joking...in print media you can't see the twinkle in one's eyes (indicating I'm joking/teasing)...maybe you needed to use the winking smiley in your original reply.

    All the best,

    Personally I use latex gloves so wouldn't use those.
