Everything about gloves.

Did you see those strange gloves the Seahawks were wearing Sunday?



While enduring yet another Panthers home opening loss one thing did stand out to me besides the
poor performance by our offense. It was seeing Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks wearing a futuristic-looking glove between snaps on Sunday afternoon.

The Seahawks were using the CoreControl Cooling Glove, a device that’s helping athletes across the country in hot situations and used by many NFL and college teams. 

The glove was invented by Stanford doctors. The glove provides physical endurance and performance by reducing body temperature in minutes. The CoreControl CoolingGlove, using only ice and a vacuum, physically extracts excess body heat through only one hand and returns the body temperature to normal range within minutes. Outside Magazine’s Berne Broudy describes the glove as giving a “steroid-like boost” to overall athletic performance – and it’s perfectly legal. 

At $895 a glove it would be nice to be a Cooling Glove distributor. However, I think my idea to set up a Winter Glove kiosk at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey during the Super Bowl in February may be a cool idea, too.

Washing Instructions for White Cotton Gloves




White cotton gloves have been around for hundreds of years.  In the past white gloves were 
considered an essential part of a person’s wardrobe. Today, white gloves continue to be used for many different purposes beyond formal occasions. In any case, being white, these gloves will get soiled or dirty so we thought it would be helpful to offer some instructions due to the numerous requests we get from our customers.  
These instructions are based on our 100% White Cotton Gloves



First, inspect the gloves for any stains or spots. Our gloves can be machine washed on gentle cycle but hand washing is also sufficient. 



If stains or spots are present, prepare the gloves for washing by placing stain remover on any of the stains or spots. Rub the stain remover into the stain using a small, soft-bristled brush. Let them sit for several minutes but no longer than 10. 



Wash the gloves using cold water and use a small amount of bleach to bring out the whiteness in the gloves. It is best to wash the gloves by themselves. Washing gloves with other clothing increases the chance you might lose a glove or damage them. Never pour bleach directly onto a glove. This can damage the fabric and stitching. Always dilute the bleach in water. 



You can machine dry the gloves using a cool dryer temperature but it is best drip dry or lay them flat to dry. 



Note: Cotton gloves will shrink if washed in hot water or dried using a hot temperature.
