Windows 7: Need Assistance Finding Soft Gloves

Need Assistance Finding Soft Gloves

Ones that are around as soft as microfiber gloves or softer.

I was able to find microfiber gloves, however those are fabricy meaning they can attract and/or give off lint/dust, which is a pain to deal with when applying screen protectors on screens.

Is silk necessary as soft or softer than microcloth? How about linen?

I just cannot find any gloves that are as soft or softer that microcloth. If someone can at least tell me what material out there is used/manufactured then this would be a great step leading me to what I need.

The two main types of material used are either latex (or alternates) as used in medical industry, or high quality cotton which is used in the museum/archaeological area for artifact handling where lint is a major no-no.

maybe checking out specialists in this area will bear fruit, but the quality of the product is the most important

Wait...so latex is as soft as microfiber?! I actually always thought otherwise. The good thing about latex is that it doesn't give off lint or dust, and is way easy to clean. However, softer than microfiber? I wish the answer was easy to search for, or for a website that tells you which of two materials are softer that you're inquiring about (in this case latex versus microfiber).

Cotton I don't really care about since I don't see how it handles dust or lint better than microfiber, which is woven like cotton.

I wouldn't know where to start looking for "specialists". I don't even know the kind of people that specialize in knowing which material is softer than which, well at least to when it comes to gloves.

In case you're wondering, I'm not necessarily desiring gloves softer or as soft as microfiber even though I said this before. What I am really after is something that won't scratch pretty much any kind of electronic device.

For instance, I once used to use vinyl gloves (disposable thin opaque gloves that come in a pack of a 100) to handle my electronics to prevent sweat and scratches by my nails. However, after once rubbing a surface of one of my electronic devices with a vinyl glove, I realized it was abrasive to it, so I stayed away from vinyl forever.

However, I never had a problem with latex, although I'm not going to try and see if it could scratch anything, especially if it's something I care about.

So I'm just looking for something that will have NO CHANCE of scratching surfaces of electronic devices (TVs, game consoles, cell phones etc.). The softest material I have come across is microfiber, which is why I have a pair of microfiber gloves.

I wouldn't really consider using soft gloves meant for JEWLERY. I mean, you would then just need a material soft enough that it won't scratch or blemish metals, crystals or diamonds.

However electronics are usually made of a cheap plastic that get scratched by pretty much everything, which is why I ended up using microfiber to deal with them - so far I've yet to have a problem. I once used pressure on a surface with a microfiber cloth and was not able to do anything. This is why I trust it.

I actually have one microfiber cloth that feels almost like silk/polyester. I just wish all microfiber was like this...the rest of my microfiber cloths and of course my gloves, are not as fine and you can see microscopic threads sticking out and so forth, like a sock.
