Q. Is there anything wrong with using disposable gloves on Pesach?
A. Disposable gloves do not pose an inherent issue for Pesach, but some are coated with a powder to prevent the gloves from sticking. The powder is likely made from kitnios or an innocuous material, but it is possible that it will be chametz. For example, a company recently began marketing disposable gloves which are dusted with colloidal oatmeal to help hydrate the skin they come in contact with. Accordingly, we recommend that people only use powder-free gloves, or ones that are otherwise known to be free of concern.
