Home > Health Library > How to take off disposable gloves
Use the hand that you write with to grasp the cuff of the glove on the other hand.
Pull that glove off so that it is inside out. Be sure any soiled material stays inside that glove.
Ball up the removed glove in the palm of your gloved hand. Slide one or two bare fingers inside the other glove. Make sure that the bare fingers don't touch the outside of the glove.
Pull down with those fingers, peeling off the glove. The first glove will be inside the second glove.
Throw away the gloves in a plastic bag, and wash your hands.
