Most Common Questions About AnyGlove
No. Provided the treated areas are allowed to dry thoroughly after each application, the product will not wash off if the gloves get wet..
AnyGlove performs best on fleece, polyester, nylon, spandex, artificial leather, wool and cotton gloves. Before applying AnyGlove it is recommended that you test on an inconspicuous area of the glove by gently rubbing 1-2 drops into the material to check for color fastness or undesirable discoloration. The product is not recommended for light colored gloves as some discoloration may occur, or for certain types of leather gloves, as performance results can vary widely depending on the type and finish of the leather. AnyGlove will work on many types of leather, but must be applied to a larger surface area and may require more than one application before proper functionality is achieved. Please refer to YouTube video demonstrations for further information regarding leather glove application methods, tips and tricks.
AnyGlove is a liquid that is applied by the user to any finger/s area of the glove that the user wants to have work with a touchscreen device as easily as if they were touching it with your finger. The product is designed to work by penetrating through to the opposite side of the material and bonding to the fibers of the glove textile to create a conductive bridge or path. When dry, it provides connectivity to the touchscreen as if there is nothing between the bare skin and the touchscreen at all.
It depends on the type of glove and usage. AnyGlove was originally designed to provide touchscreen functionality for the most common type of work gloves found in most hardware stores; typically made of synthetic leather, nylon and spandex. Delivery truck drivers and airline baggage handlers, who often use this type of glove due to its reasonably low cost, form fitting style and durability, tested AnyGlove over a two-month period. Often handling hundreds of packages or pieces of luggage each day, and generally wearing out their gloves after only a few months, reported that after the second application of AnyGlove, the functionality lasted on average about a week or longer per application (5-10 drops). When compared side by side to patch and thread type touch glove technology, AnyGlove was the only solution that didn’t tear off, fray or start to fade within the first few days of use and could be reapplied as necessary to restore functionality. In light use, such as running, cycling, and winter weight fleece gloves, the functionality can last for days, weeks, months or longer, depending on usage.

Results will vary depending on the type, size and number of fingers of the glove you want activated. A 15ml bottle of AnyGlove contains approximately 354 drops. On lighter weigh fabrics, fleece and knits, a typical dose/application is 3-5 drops per treated area/finger. On heavier weight material, such as work gloves, it may require as many as 7-10 drops to fully saturate/penetrate to the opposite side the first application, but often only required 3-5 drops to reactivate, thereafter.
It doesn’t providing you allow it to dry before using. The product is designed to bond to textiles, but as stated is not permanent. AnyGlove is similar to aftermarket waterproofing treatments. It is critical to let it dry thoroughly. If you immediately wash the garment after applying it, you would wash off all of the chemistry before it has a chance to set. It is a “water based” treatment.
Absolutely. AnyGlove is water based, environmentally safe, REACH Compliant and has a VERY low order of toxicity. You don’t want to get the liquid in your eyes, for the exact same reason you wouldn’t want to get soap or shampoo in your eyes. Please use common sense, as you would with any other household chemicals. The warning label only applies when the product in its liquid form, because after it dries is completely inert. Should you have any further questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you happen to get it on a hard surface, simply wipe with a wet paper towel or rag. If you get it on an article of clothing you didn’t intend to, rinse with cold water while it is still wet, or blot with damp towel, or launder it while still wet. If AnyGlove happens to dry on an unintended garment, you can treat that garment with a pre-wash stain remover and then launder as normal. Any remaining product will eventually disappear through normal laundering cycles.
It will work great. AnyGlove starts bonding in less than 3 seconds, but you will have to apply more to get best results and lasting functionality.
Nothing. It will not damage your screen in any way, wet or dry. If it does happen to get on your screen, simply wipe it off with a clean, dry cloth. We have taken great care in developing this product to be as foolproof and safe as possible, while allowing you to keep your gloves on when using touchscreens.
AnyGlove is a cutting edge polymer chemistry engineered specifically for the purpose of making virtually any type of glove compatible with touchscreen devices; iPhones, touchscreen tablets, ATMs, Automobiles, GPS systems, etc.
Most likely, depending on the textile, you didn’t apply enough of the chemistry to fully penetrate through to the opposite side. As a best practice, we recommend applying enough to cover an area about the size of a nickel, about 5-10 drops on thicker textiles, press it into the material, let it deeply penetrate through to the opposite side of the treated area and then let dry. In the unlikely event the glove doesn’t work after the first application, simply apply a few more drops to the already treated area, let dry and then test again for functionality. In most cases, this will resolve the issue. If the glove is very thick, like ski gloves, we recommend treating a larger surface area, about the size of a quarter, letting it dry, then immediately re-apply another coat. There are certain types of gloves in which AnyGlove will not perform satisfactorily, which is due to the design of the glove, not the product. Big, bulky gloves will be conductive at the treated area, but the area in which the finger comes in contact with the screen may be either too large, or too small for the screen to detect. For example trying to text with a pair of hockey gloves on can pose a challenge in precisely hitting the tiny keys, in the same way that some who have larger fingers sometimes struggle using bare hands. We recommend using form fitting gloves, or treating areas of the glove that are easier to precisely contact the device, like pinky finger or knuckles on these styles of gloves. Please refer to the YouTube video demos on tips and tricks of working with gloves of this type for more information.
