True Blues are quite possibly the most comfortable pair of household gloves you will ever own. Their tough vinyl shell, generous cotton liner and snug fit allow True Blues to resist hot water and household chemicals saving your hands from drying and cracking. Because True Blues are vinyl, they won't crack like regular latex gloves. True Blues are latex free and are machine washable making them the only household gloves you will ever need. Available in small to extra large.

- VERY tough. I have handled broken glass, dunked them in near-boiling water, touched pans that just came out of the oven, etc. and they have managed to last over a month so far. They are just now starting to crack a bit, but considering that they're being used for hours on end and dealing with restaurant-level dishes and cleaners, I'd say they'll last quite a while for around-the-house use.
- Cotton liner makes putting on/taking off very easy.
- Easily washed - just turn them inside out and run them through your washing machine and they're good as new.
- Made from vinyl and not latex, so those with allergies shouldn't have any issues.
- If using them for long periods of time, your hands will start to sweat. Not only will this make the gloves smell bad, but if used long enough, the smell can stick to your hands for days, no matter how much you wash them. Make sure to let them air out or wash them after using them.
-Even though they have textured hands to allow for greater grip, they are still sort of slippery when wet.
As household dishwashing gloves, I would highly recommend them. For restaurant-level dishwashers, though, they might not last you as long as you think. Still, they are very useful, and I would definitely recommend trying them out to see if they fit your needs.
My only comment is to be very careful not to get water on the inside. If you do, make sure that you put something inside to hold them open while they dry. Otherwise they can get kind of a funky smell in them. It happened to me on a single glove and I had to turn the glove inside out and wash it very well with soapy water and then dry it for several days on a stand that forced it open for airflow while it dried. I'm careful now so that doesn't happen anymore. Overall I am extremely pleased with these gloves and will likely never buy another type.
These are far superior to the fancier ones I bought before this. Those were longer (had a long cuff in a decorative pattern) but too thin.
When my allergies act up, I seem to react to everything - including even the mildest dishwashing liquid. Hence the need for waterproof latex free gloves. These hypo-allergenic gloves do the job just fine!
These gloves are made of a tough vinyl shell that can withstand harsh dishwashing cleaners. The vinyl shell also insulates my hands so I can safely use really hot water when washing a sinkful of greasy dishes.
The vinyl around the glove's fingers and palm is slightly roughened for a good grip on soapy dishes.
Gloves measure about 12" long with 5" cuffs ... so, I can easily reach for those dishes at the very bottom of my kitchen sink full of sudsy water.
I also have the option of folding back the long cuffs on these gloves ... this prevents water from running back on my arms while doing the dishes. (SEE PHOTOS IN CUSTOMER IMAGES)
The generous cotton liner makes this kitchen glove super comfortable. The cotton liner also allows me slip these gloves on and off with utmost ease.
These gloves come in really cool colors ... so, they are fun to wear!
Gloves, especially, cotton lined gloves, would need washing. I machine wash these gloves on gentle cycle and line dry to get them really clean.
HINT: I fold the cuffs all the way back to the fingers before machine washing and, again to line dry. So, my gloves are always clean and odor free.
These vinyl gloves are thick. However, I adjusted quickly to the thickness without any loss of dishes! :)
I find that new gloves are a bit stiff at first, but they soon soften up nicely.
ABOUT SIZING: These cotton lined gloves slip on and off easily so, 'Medium' would be a snug fit for hands that would otherwise use 'Large' in the yellow household gloves. If you like your gloves loose fitting, then buy your regular glove size!
The fingers on these gloves are a bit short but I don't find it a problem ... Actually this makes it so much easier to deep clean these gloves (when I turn them inside out) to machine wash and line dry.
Overall, I recommend the True Blues Ultimate Household Gloves to anyone looking for gloves that are both comfortable and durable.
If you are also looking for latex free hypo-allergenic household and garden gloves ... then you found them ... just decide on the color - green, red, purple, pink or plain old True Blue!
NOV 2011 UPDATE: After 1 year of dishwashing duty, my green True Blue gloves developed a pinhole leak and, are now retired to doing light duty as my 'dry weather' gardening gloves :))
JUNE 2013 UPDATE: My replacement pair is now 17 months old and is still doing active dishwashing duty! However, the cotton inner liner has gotten understandably thinner after over a year and a half of daily use and dozens of baths in the clothes washer :))
I am going to 'retire' this pair now, solely for the comfortable feel of the thicker cotton lining in a new pair of True Blue gloves!
I certainly got my money's worth out of these gloves over the years ... but still, I wouldn't mind if these gloves were more affordably priced.
Hope my review and updates were helpful ... Jeffrey A. (Jeff)
