Best dishwashing gloves for very hot water???

Started 1323968351.41 in Kitchen & Food Talk | Last reply 1324317437.547 by Dreamchaser

My Playtex gloves are not cutting it. I like the water very, very hot when I'm washing dishes. Any recommendations? I will order some if I have to.

And does anyone happen to have a membership to Cooks Illustrated? If so, would you mind telling me what they said about this? They did a test on dishwashing gloves.

There are some Playtex gloves that are heavier than others. I have some purple ones that are very nice and heavy. but I don't have problems with even my thinner ones, and I use VERY hot water daily with them. My only problem is when I stab myself with a knife in the course of washing it. klutz!

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

Casabella makes the best glove I have ever used. If you can't find them locally they are sold at drugstore.com and amazon.

The ones I have are the Playtex living gloves, the very long purple ones with the cuffs.

I've tried the Casabella as well.

When I was a young newlywed a friend's mom (with beautiful fingernails and hands) told me about Bluettes. They are kind of hard to find these day but well worth the hunt. They are fabric lined (stay dry), strong and last forever. They get more flexible as you use them so don't be put off by firmness.

I have found them at Smart and Final and I think Albertson's Grocery store so be sure and check your grocery stores. In the past I have found them in drug stores. Poss. they may be found in hardware stores where janitorial supplies are sold.

My water must be hotter than normal, although I like it that way.

I use very hot water and do all my dishes by hand, and any gloves I buy are fine for a good amount of time, then just move on to a new pair.

Thanks for the recommendation, I ordered them from Amazon for $6.17 and free s/h for prime members. A good deal!

I always end up with holes in my right hand glove from my finger nails. Those blue gloves that cost $10 are the best, but they are heavy duty and not as flexible.
