They’re perfect for protecting your hands and skin and keeping bacteria and germs
at bay when dealing with muck and grime.
Whether you’re emptying a blocked grate or drain outside or carrying out general
cleaning work around the home - latex gloves are just the job!
Latex gloves are usually lightly powdered with starch inside to absorb sweat and
to ensure they are comfortable and easy to put on. There are powder-free alternatives
They are disposable and cheap, and can be bought in multi-packs.
They are ambidextrous and usually come in one fit-all size, however some are available
in small, medium and large sizes.
You’ll find latex gloves being used in all types of professions these days including
hairdressing where they have helped to reduce the development of skin conditions
such as dermatitis.
There are also heavy-duty brands of latex gloves available - these may cost a little
more but are strong, breathable and can be cleaned and used again.
This type of glove is seamless, has a secure grip and is ideal for construction work,
metalwork or gardening.
Some people are known to have an allergy to latex so it’s worth bearing this in mind
This has led to the development of a similar type of glove made from polyisoprene.
