How Long Should Dishwashing Gloves Last?

Category Advice

I use rubber household gloves when I wash dishes. How long should I wait before I buy a new pair?

Any help would be appreciated.

I literally use them till they no longer serve their intended purpose. When I start to feel water leaking in, it's time to throw them away. That could be three weeks, or several months -- depends on how hard I scrub the dishes, I guess -- or how long before I puncture one with a fork!

I also use a trick that I read here at Thrifty Fun -- I'm left handed, so when the left glove wears out, I throw it away and turn the right glove inside out for my left hand. I can save about half on each pair by using that little trick!

I agree-use until unusable! Then cut into slices or "rings" for extra strong rubber bands!

I agree - until they fall apart. Why buy new if they still do the job?
