This is especially useful for veterinarians and lab technicians. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for these products are available upon request.
2. The most effective way of cleaning the total glove, exterior cuff and hand-portion, including Dupont Ballistic Kevlar Felt lining would be that of professional leather dry-cleaning.
3. It is not recommended to wash your glove in water. However , if you do attempt washing in cool water, be sure to hand form and dry at room temperature for two to three days. Do not put into dryer. Washing Vet-Pro™ gloves in water with sanitizing soap a few times will not destroy the glove. This method is not recommended, nor covered under our 5 year warranty.
