Can I use the technology to monitor gloves and cloth to be thrown away?

Yes, but tags are not cheap (10 cents apiece and up), so if you plan to use them on millions of items, it will require a significant investment. My recommendation would be to analyze what the benefit would be of capturing data about these items, figure out what a deployment would cost, and determine whether or not it makes sense to move forward with an RFID deployment.
