Re: What To Do?

Hope you decide to donate them to your local animal shelter.  These animals depend on the kindness of strangers.

Re: What To Do?

Unless they are individually wrapped and very expensive they are not sterile. I would donate to an animal shelter or animal rescue.

PS they are great for helping to get extra traction to open up a stubborn jar in the kitchen.

Re: Whst To Do?

are they latex? if so, not everyplace will want them due to allergies....
I would probably give them to an animal rescue shelter; am sure they would appreciate them since they seem to always be operating on a shoestring. Just make sure you are not charged for them.

Amazon doesn't want to be involved unless the vendor fails to satisfy the customer.

I use them to apply self tanner.  But I don't know if I can use up 200 pairs in my lifetime.

@lovesrecess.  They are a latex substitute called Nitrile.  The box is quite heavy so it would cost to send them back.

Has it been two weeks and you haven't received a refund?  I would contact Amazon and let them refund you.  Their refunds are pretty much instant.  It wouldn't take two weeks.

Re: What To Do?

The women in our church collecting donations and were buying them and sending boxes to African hospitals as the doctors there were so short of latex gloves. I have forgotten which country it was in Africa.  Badly needed as I understood.

Re: What To Do?

Sterile gloves are packaged individually.   The boxes of gloves in medical exam rooms, and the box we use from when we change the dressing on my husbands foot, are not sterile.

 

My hairdresser uses gloves when she colors my hair, I use them when I pull weeds or plant flowers, I have worn them in the grocery store and at the gas pump, during flu season.
