Wedding Season is here and you have no idea what to get for all of the newly weds. The key to giving to newly weds is to keep the gift appropriate for everyone in the family. It is also important to keep the gift enjoyable and useful for both the bride and the groom.

Try the perfectly pampered spa gift set for the gift of a day with peace and serenity for the newly weds.

GoGoods! Food Industry Gloves

April 17, 2012

In the food industry, not only is the quality of food and customer satisfaction of high importance, but also the proper handling and preparation of food to obtain health code standards. The Food and Drug administration is the agency that provides and sets these the standards for all other state, county and municipal governments’ food service regulations. 

In 2005, the FDA Food Code altered the standards to address the proper handling of food in the last stages of serving and preparation and said, “Food employees shall minimize bare hand and arm contact with non-prepackaged food that is in a ready to eat form.” This addresses the importance of using clean utinsels and gloves while contacting food before it is served.

While some states enforce a strict food code, others leave the use of protective gloves to the business owner’s discretion. Many businesses in the food service industry see the use of gloves as way to ensure customer satisfaction by meeting the FDA Food Code and by seeing the health standards in effective use. Just think, would you feel that your food is truly safe if you saw it being prepared without the proper gloves?

It can be safe to assume that the use of food service gloves are good for business and Food Code approval.  Be aware that to ensure proper food health and safety, it is best use vinyl gloves in the food industry rather than latex, to protect customers with latex allergies. GoGoods! provides both latex and vinyl gloves in multiple sizes and a powder or powder-freeoption.

Remember, it is important to wash hands between glove changes. Here are some tips provided by the Mayo Clinic on how to properly wash hands:

  • Wet your hands with running water.
  • Apply liquid, bar or powder soap.
  • Lather well.
  • Rub your hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Remember to scrub all surfaces, including the backs of your hands, wrists, between your fingers and under your fingernails.
  • Rinse well.
  • Dry your hands with a clean or disposable towel or air dryer.
  • If possible, use your towel to turn off the faucet.

Customer Service 2.0: Protecting your biggest assets!

March 12, 2012

Hands are one of the most important parts of your body – and every precaution possible should be taken to keep them in tip-top shape.  That’s why GoGoods.com has such a large selection of latex gloves. From food service, to health care, to cleaning, to salons and spas – we’re here for your every need.

Latex gloves are most commonly used as a barrier against bacteria and viruses.  The more we discover how illnesses are passed from person to person the more precautious our society has become. It is now common for latex gloves to be used in food preparation, and many other services where contact is made between people and there is a chance for the transfer of germs or bodily fluids. For heavy duty cleaning or even household chores, they help protect chemicals and cleaners from entering cuts on hands or from drying out cuticles and nails. What easier clean up for auto technicians or other dirty jobs where employees regularly handle oil and grease? And check out this study done on gloves in the salon workplace that found workers were 17 more times likely to suffer skin conditions without wearing gloves.

There are many different grades and sizes of latex gloves. GoGoods latex gloves come in a variety of sizes, grades and materials depending on what task they are needed for. You can also choose if you’d like a powder coating on the interior of the glove to keep a better grip when hands start to sweat. And if you’re worried about latex allergies, we’ve got you covered. There’s a wide selection of nitrile gloves with the same quality as latex.

There are so many colors, options and amazing prices – feel free to browse our selection and see if GoGoods may have the perfect hand-protector for you!
