These rubber gloves are great for washing up or as i use them, for protection from chemicals like white spirit or engine oil. These are very well made and don't leak or let large pockets of air in through gaps.
They are quite tough and rugged but aren't built to take stabbings for example. You can rip them by catching them on sharp objects but generally just running a knife over them gently doesn't cause any serious damage. I haven't tried cutting my finger off with a knife while wearing these, so i can't comment on their finger protection...
The gloves are thick and the outer layer of rubber is just about the right depth. They're not too deep to make your fingers fat but they're not thin enough to rip easy. They protect my hands well and I have never had any problems with the material.
The packaging is a small plastic bag which cannot be recycled and must be thrown away. The gloves cannot be recycled either but I've had my current pair for weeks now and they haven't been destroyed so the will last you before you need to bin them anyway.
The gloves don't fit my hands that snuggly, they don't cling to my fingers and i'm average build and my fingers aren't disproportionately fat. My fingers don't reach the end unless i push hard into them. The fingers are slightly smaller at the tips but unless you have really large fingers this won't be a problem for you.
It's not a chore when putting the gloves on, they're easy to slip your hands into and around the wrists it doesn't feel to tight. I don't feel any rough chafing or rubbing on the tops of my hands so this must mean they're the right size. Equally though, the gloves don't just slip off.
The edge of the hands is a little baggy but this is not enough for them to drop off. At least they're not skin tight because that gets annoying really quickly when moving your hand back and forth all the time.
Overall these are a great pair of gloves, great value for money too because they last. Whilst they probably will end up in landfill eventually, they will at least get a lot of work done before then and won't end up in pieces when you first use them. I highly recommend these.
I don't use rubber gloves every time I wash up by hand but at this time of the year I do suffer from dry knuckles (even though I use hand cream and wear gloves when I walk the dog). So, if I am going to have my hands immersed in water for a long period of time, then I have to use rubber gloves in order to protect them and prevent them from getting any worse.
I used to use the more expensive Marigold rubber gloves but to be honest I do think they are overpriced. For this reason, I decided to try out Tesco's own brand of Everyday Value rubber gloves. They look almost exactly he same as a pair of Marigolds but they are a fraction of the cost, at only 50p a pair.
The packaging is very plain and simple but to be honest, it's not the packaging I'm interested in so this makes no difference to me at all. I am not sure if these come in different sizes but every time I have bought a pair from Tesco's they all seem to be the same size, so maybe it's a case of 'one size fits all.
Either way, they are a really good fit for me personally. They are bright yellow in colour and slightly embossed with criss crosses on the palm side of the glove, which makes holding things like slippery crockery and glassware so much easier when washing up. The fingers are the perfect size and the gloves themselves actually come right up over my wrists so that if I am using the washing up bowl filled to the brim, I know there is no fear of the water actually getting up over the top of the gloves and getting on the insides.
They do protect my hands and they do manage to stop my hands from getting burnt if I am using scalding hot water so the rubber is fairly thick and very good quality.
I would have to say that given the choice, I would actually choose these rubber gloves over the far more expensive Marigold gloves. They are really excellent value for money and a really good, high quality product.
I suffer from eczema on my hands quite bad, and I am constantly getting my hands wet whilst I am at home looking after my baby, by washing bottles, washing my hands after changing him, and just general cleaning at home. It really irritates my eczema getting my hands wet all the time, as I am supposed to keep them moisturised as much as I can and water just washes it all off!
My mum suggested I get some rubber gloves for when ever I am cleaning or washing bottles etc, so I purchased these rubber gloves from Tescos. Tesco value has now changed its name to Tesco everyday value with slightly better packaging, making their everyday value range look less cheap than it used to, although the prices are all still the same. These rubber gloves come in a clear packet, and you get two pairs in a pack.
They are bright yellow rubber gloves, and they fit my hands nicely, although they are a little bit baggy which can make it hard to pick up small items and fiddly bits in the sink, but overall they are a good size. My boyfriend fits his hands into them perfectly fine too. These rubber gloves do a great job at keeping my hands dry whilst I am washing up etc, and they were a great idea to use to help my eczema. I have since purchased a few packs of these, as they don't last long. They start to loose their shape a bit, and look grubby after a while, but for the price which was around 50p you cannot complain.
They are easy to take off, they just pull off easily, if you pull them off each finger at the end slightly and then pull off, otherwise they end up inside out, and I end up getting the inside wet. I leave these to dry on the drying rack on the sink and they dry pretty quickly.
These rubber gloves are such a useful item to have in the house. They can be used whilst doing any general cleaning to keep your hands clean, dry and protected if you are using bleach etc, and I use these now all day! I am glad I bought them, and I will continue to purchase them. They are cheap, do the job I want them to do, and my hands are getting so much better now they are kept much dryer!
One of my hobbies is Metal Detecting and I will not go out in the fields unless I am fully equipped and that includes a pair of latex gloves. Others don't and laugh at 'marigoldste' but I know the dangers and bacteria out there and don't want to spend 30 minutes scrubbing my nails when I get home before I prepare the tea. I also use the same gloves for the garden and the house - but different ones obviously.
As I go through a lot of gloves I simply refuse to pay a fortune for them. This is where I think the Tesco Everyday Value ones come into their own. They come in a plastic bag, which is sealed and are bright yellow in colour (hence marigoldste) and there are two pairs of gloves.
The gloves are made of latex and are flock lined and are also very easy to slip on. As I can have them on for upto 8 hours in a day I think I can give them a good 'test' on the fields in relation to quality. As I'm digging a lot there is a lot of rubbing/friction yet these very cheap gloves still stay strong throughout the day. The only thing I find is when I take them off, all the lining flies everywhere and it looks like it is snowing to those around me. Also during the summer I can tip my glove up and literally pour out the sweat. I know it sounds gross.
This doesn't happen whilst at home cleaning or in the garden as my gloves are only on for short period of time.
It is important, like with all Latex products to keep out of way of heat and direct sunlight and these are no different. It is also important to keep out of the heat.
As many will know Latex can occasionally cause quite drastic reactions and it is very important that you stop sing these gloves if you suffer in this way. Thankfully only a small minority of people are affected.
The gloves cost 47p for the pack of two that equates to 24p a pack. This is super value and I can't recommend them highly enough. I've used mine out in the fields, garden and for all kinds of household tasks and these throw away gloves are superb. Highly recommended!

This is a review of the Tesco Value Household Rubber Gloves we have been using lately. My nearly two year old loves nothing more than playing at cleaning with me when I'm having a tidy up and as soon as she sees me put my rubber gloves on, she wants hers on too! I had a brand new packet of these in the cupboard so issued her with a new pair so at least I knew they were clean whilst she played with her Hetty Cleaning Station (which I reviewed earlier this year) around the house.
The gloves are yellow and thin rubber and you get two pairs in each pack. Mine are packaged in the old blue and white stripes plastic bag but this has now been updated to the everyday value packaging. I think they only come in one size and these are a little tight on my (big) hands and would be skin tight on my husband's enormous hands! We store ours in a cupboard away from direct sunlight and we are advised to rinse only after use.
I stocked up on cleaning gear when we moved house a year ago and a couple of bags of these were included in the load of products I bought. I think it was wishful thinking that friends and family coming round would take pity on me with a young baby and join in with the cleaning of the house! Still, they were handy to have in.
Having used them around the house (and noted them going in her mouth a lot!) my husband took her in the garden to pick up leaves and she wore the gloves again. We had to roll up the sleeves a bit but they kept her hands clean. She soon bored of the leaves and we took the gloves off her and they were filthy and a little wet inside so I went to give them a rinse and in doing so managed to rip the edge off one they were so thin! They then went straight in the bin.
I actually prefer a more premium glove like Marigold as they are thicker and less easy to break, although I will still use these gloves I would be more likely to throw them away after using them.
A two pack of gloves costs just 47p which is a great price but sadly they are just not good enough quality so I'd rather spend a little more for a pair that don't break after a couple of uses.
I don't think I will be buying any more of these gloves as I think they are a bit of a false economy. They will still all get used though and are better than having nothing to protect your hands. I think at this price they are virtually disposable and if they fit your hands they are worth having as a one-off use product.
In general I love the Tesco own range as I find a lot of their products are just as good as the big branded more expensive stuff! Certain things I refuse to pay a lot of money for and rubber gloves are one of them. Hands up I always have a pair of Marigolds to hand for when I am using bleach / abrasive products as I have more confidence that my hands are protected due to the quality and thickness... however when I occasionally wash pots and pans in the sink (my dishwasher mainly does the washing in this house!) I only use thin cheap Tesco gloves for this job.
In recent months Tesco have revamped their value range appearnace and name - its now known as Tesco Everyday Value - the tacky cheap red and white look have now gone and been replaced with white background with blue font confirming the name of the product and that you get 2 pairs of gloves per pack and they are made from natural latex. The remaining front image is covered with pictures linked to rubber gloves which include : toilets, bin bags, plugholes, cooker, dustpans, sinks and baths. Overall the improved appearance looks much better and less cheap compared to the previous value range. The front label sits in the middle of the front of the packet - the remainder of the packet is transparent in colour so you can see the gloves inside.
The back label confirms the gloves are flock lined and made from lightweight nautral rubber and that the gloves are ideal for household tasks such as dish washing and hand washing clothes. As suspected it doesn't encourage to do big tasks involving abrasive products - in my opinion you should be using thicker gloves such as marigolds for this.
Other information includes storage - which in short is to keep them out of direct sunlight and to store away from moisture and heat.
You are also given regular warnings for rubber gloves - such as the fact that latex can cause severe reactions for some people and if this happens medical treatment should be sought... Other information other than this is the Tesco Promise Guarentee.
Like many other rubber gloves these are yellow in colour - a similar colour to Marigolds, and visably they are a lot thinner than many other rubber gloves you have seen. The bottom of the gloves where you insert your hands have a jaggy / zig zag edge and are not tight to the skin in the slightest - unlike the better brands which is why I prefer to use these for washing up only. Due to the thin-ness of the gloves a pair tends to last me around 4-6 weeks at using them up to 2 times a week.
Generally considering I use them only up to twice a week and they last anywhere between 4-6 weeks personally I feel I am getting my moneys worth out of them - and leaving my more expensive gloves to do the more important things / use more abrasive products with... Overall I would recommend them - fair enough they are not the best but they get the job done and do last a lot longer than expected.
At Tesco expect to pay 47p for this packet of 2 rubber gloves - which comes to just 24p per pair.
I really think Tesco everyday value products can be just as good as the branded ones. For some things such as toilet roll I do prefer to buy more expensive but for the majority of everyday household products Tesco value ones are absolutely fine.
For instance the Tesco everyday value rubber gloves cost less than 50p for a pack of two pairs which I think is incredible value. They are something that most households need and why pay loads of money for something that is basically the same no matter how much money you pay for them.
The Tesco value rubber gloves come in packs of two pairs and are yellow in colour. I use them for loads of chores around the house because I have really sensitive skin and bleach and some cleaning products can make my hands go red and sore.
The rubber material isn't as thick as some gloves but I personally prefer this as it means that when I am wearing the gloves they don't hamper me too much and I still have free reign and complete control over my finger for picking things up etc.
They are quite comfortable and are neither too big nor too small and when they are on they do not cut off my circulation or fall off from being too big. They also don't chaff my skin and rub it too much when I am wearing them.
Over the years I must have bought hundreds of these gloves and never once have I encountered a problem with them having holes or not being watertight. I only use them in the sink when my skin is flaring up but never has the water managed to get through to my skin.
For 47p for a pack of two pairs these gloves really do offer excellent value for money and I wouldn't even consider spending more on some as these are just as good as any other rubber gloves out there. They might not be as thick as some but I wouldn't want them any thicker as I would find that cumbersome and they do the exact same job as any others would for half the money.
Since starting to work in the care home environment and having to wash my hands on such a constant basis I have developed contact dermatitis and so get very sore hands at times.
When my hands are particularily bad I have to wear gloves doing everything at work and I have found that it really helps so I decided to buy some rubber gloves for home for when my hands are really bad.
I like the Tesco and Asdas value ranges so I had no doubt that the Tesco Value rubber gloves would do the job fine and bought them for 47p for a packet containing two pairs of the gloves.
The gloves came packaged in a plastic packet with simply the name of the shop and the name of the product on the front, when I bought these they had the usual blue and red Tesco Value logo but Tescos own brand has changed to everyday value now with a new logo.
The gloves are made of rubber obviously and they are bright yellow in colour so you are never going to mislay them. They are a decent size as I have pretty big hands for a woman and these fit me with room to spare and they fit my husband just about perfectly and he has even bigger hands than mine.
When my hands are playing up I use these to wash my dishes and to be frank I hate them but then I hate all rubber gloves as they make my hands sweat and feel uncomfortable but they do the job that is needed. The gloves are thin enough that you can feel how hot your water is but thick enough to stop your hands getting wet.
The gloves are fine for what I need, I wash the dishes with one pair and I keep a pair in the bathroom but as I hate rubber gloves I only use them when really needed. The gloves are pretty flimsy and they do start breaking away after a couple of weeks but at 47p for two pairs I think this is acceptable so I will rate these 4 stars.
I used to work at a café in my younger days and when I used to do some washing up I used to have problems with chemicals on my hands. I used to have bad hands with rashes and blotches and it would make me look terrible.
Since then I wear rubber gloves for a lot of my household cleaning and I guess it is a slight obsession but at the end of the day my health comes first. I used to visit supermarkets and spend a fortune on the well-known brands.
I found myself wondering what if I got the next brand down which happened to be the Tesco Value range and for the price you get two pairs. They were priced at 47p which is a very good price and because of the packaging and the Tesco value logo you are sometimes put off from purchasing them.
I was looking at how stretchy they are because I do have long hands and they do fit me well but if you have smaller hands you will end up with perhaps excess room to move around. I would also say if you have longer fingers this is a perfect size for you.
There is enough room for you to have these go down the arm slightly so it can stop the water from going into the glove which is horrible. The thickness of these gloves is not great you can easily feel the heat from the water instantly but you are protecting yourself at the end of the day.
I use these for washing up the dishes but also the other cleaning chores around the home which involve me using chemicals of any kind. If I am cleaning the bathroom I use these and I have found it you use a strong chemical such as bleach and you begin to use it often within a few days the gloves either lose colour or they rip apart.
When I take the gloves off I sometimes get this odd feeling like there is something still on my hand which is weird but they do peel off very easily because you just grab the end of the gloves by the finger tips and off they peel.
If you are using these everyday obviously they will rip apart after a while but the problem seems to be with these is they are thin and you will feel objects and the heat through them when using them. I think the price is good if you are using them for the washing up because they can last.
They do protect your hands and if you have small hands you will end up with excess room to manoeuvre your fingers which might be good for some people or a problem. Overall they are good value for their money and if you want thicker rubber gloves you will need to pay the extra money for them.
I don't wear rubber gloves as often as I should as I tend to wreck them regardless of what brand or price they are. The last ones I bought were Tesco Value ones at a cost of about 50p for two pairs which is great. Working out at only 25p each they are alot cheaper than the next pairs up.
They come in a plastic bag with a new label and not the above outdated bag, now pictured on the front is relevant kitcheny stuff in blue but is still easy to spot on the shelf.
The gloves themselves are yellow rubber, they are medium sized and are slightly flocky inside for comfort and ease of removal. The rubber is thinner than dearer gloves but to be honest this makes things easier to handle. They are made from natural latex.
Performance and Longevity:
The gloves are a bit big for me (they're not baggy or anything just abit long fingered) but I do have small hands, not a problem though as it makes them easier to get on and off. The cuffs are quite long too to help stop water going down them, although I always manage this and it's horrible. I turn them inside out and stick them on the radiator for next time.
The gloves are comfy to wear and easy to put on. Being thin doesn't bother me when doing the washing up as the water isn't too hot anyway also I find this better to get grip of my dishes. They do split within weeks but in fairness so do some expensive ones, I've had the finger tip come off most rubber gloves regardless of what I've paid for them. Non are immune to a knife attack either. It doesn't seem to be the gloves themselves that wreck mine more the user- me! They're not particularly hard wearing but enough for every day light use ie cleaning, and bleach hasn't compromised them. They smell the same as other brands.
Dearer ones are thicker and do last longer but for the price these are great gloves, so I would recommend them.
5 stars from me
I tend to get very dry and split skin on my hands in the winter, and this gets worse with washing up. I decided to try wearing rubber gloves to help stop my skin from getting so dried out - and they really do help. These gloves are a lot cheaper than branded ones, but work just fine. The gloves themselves are much thinner, but if you're only doing washing up etc and no heavy scrubbing of things, they work fine don't rip. The lining does tend to disintegrate quite a bit at first, but once it's rubbed off in a few places, I never notice it again. They also tend to turn a bit orangey, but I think this often happens with other brands too.
These gloves have good grip, last a good length of time, and save my hands from drying out. Good product and good value for money.
Rubber gloves are something that makes cleaning a little more bearable. I don't use them for everyday things such as washing up but save them for more vigorous cleaning duties such as cleaning out the oven and other horrible tasks. Some rubber gloves I've used are these from the Tesco value range. I'll try anything to make the dirty jobs even just a little less dirty than they have to be.
These packs of rubber gloves costs around the 50p mark and can only be purchased from Tesco in store or online. Each pack contains two pairs of gloves.
The gloves look exactly like the more well-known Marigold rubber gloves. Being made from a rubbery material and bright yellow in colour, you certainly couldn't mistake them for anything else. The gloves are of an ok size, I have particularly small hands and always have trouble getting a decent fit rubber glove and these aren't the best I've experienced fit wise. Once on my hands I do find I have a bit of excess finger left at the end where my fingers don't quite reach the end of the gloves. I have this trouble with all rubber gloves and have learnt to cope with it, I would imagine they are fine with average size hands! Once on my hands the rubber gloves reach most of the way up my forearm (again small arms) so delving my hands into a bowl of water is no trouble and I don't have to worry about water seeping in the top.
The material of the gloves is quite thin, thin compared to branded rubber gloves. At around 25p for a pair of gloves you have to expect that they will most probably lack in one area and that area is definitely the quality of the rubber material. For the price you can't really moan though as they still protect your hands when cleaning and do last for quite a few uses. The material inside the glove is quite comfortable but still leaves your hands smelling of that foul, gone off type smell.
Given the price for two pairs of gloves is so little, I definitely recommend these rubber gloves from the Tesco value range. They protect your hands when participating in horrible cleaning jobs, are comfortable to wear and mega cheap. The only downside is that they leave your hands smelling horrible and aren't the thickest gloves available to buy.
Although I suffer with sensitive skin on my hands I don't wear rubber gloves until something causes the eczema on my hands to get aggravated. After my mother-in-law gave me five bottles of Tesco Original Washing Up Liquid, I discovered that the washing up liquid aggravates my eczema. Not wanting to waste what I had been given I decided I needed to wear rubber gloves to wash the pots.
While pottering around Tesco I spotted the Tesco Everyday Value rubber gloves, they actually caught my eye as they have been repackaged and you can now see the yellow of the gloves inside the pack. The next thing that caught my eye was the price, 47p a pack and the pack contains two pair of gloves.
When I got home the usual pot mountain was waiting for me so I donned a pair of the gloves and proceeded to sink test them. I found the gloves to be a good size, I would say they are a medium as they fit my hands comfortably with a bit of room to spare where as on my husbands hands they are skin tight.
The natural latex the gloves are made from is thick enough to shield my hands from the heat of the pot water but I can still feel the pots and sponge without feeling as though I have my hands in a pair of mittens. The new longer cuff protects my wrists and comes nearly halfway up my forearms; I can easily splash about in the sink without worrying about the water getting inside my gloves.
The inside of the gloves is white, but I would not say they are lined with anything. The gloves are very comfortable on and do not rub or snag on the skin on my hands. I also think that the gloves do not smell overly rubbery.
After each use I dry the gloves off as I would my hands and then remove them and pop them in the kitchen draw. The gloves are easy to remove and do not grip onto my hands.
The gloves usually last me just over a week and then I put them to one side to do yucky jobs with like cleaning the bathroom, wheelie bins, picking up leaves etc. Once they have been used for yucky jobs I pop them in the bin, as far as I can tell the gloves and packaging are not recyclable.
I can not recommend these gloves enough, as soon as I started wearing them the eczema on my hands cleared up within days. To be honest once I start wearing rubber gloves again for pot washing and other jobs it makes me wonder why I stop wearing them. Priced at 47p for two pairs I am happy to buy a few packs and use the gloves for a wide range of household cleaning jobs. They wear reasonably well and offer a decent level of protection from the harsh effects of household cleaning products.
Thank you for reading.
My hands get very dry when I use a lot of soap and cleaning products on them and even using moisturiser on my hands will not stop this effect as I tend to do a bit of cleaning and washing up each day. In order to keep my hands away from some of these chemicals I use rubber gloves. Rubber gloves are great as they keep your hands away from the water and soap and stop them from getting dirt on them too which is great when you get to the dirtier jobs around the house.
These rubber gloves from Tesco's are amazingly good value and to me it doesn't even matter that I need to replace them every so often as the cheap price really doesn't matter. The rubber gloves are basically marigolds and although you can tell they are not as good quality as a proper pair of rubber gloves apart from that there is not much difference between them. The rubber gloves are made from a thin rubber and are yellow. Inside there is just a basic thin cotton material but this is comfortable enough and keep your hands nice and soft inside.
The gloves come up to about the middle of my forearm so they will keep dry if you plunge them into a deep sink of washing up water. The gloves are perfect for cleaning toilets as well if you are handling bleach and other cleaning products.
Like I've mentioned above the price is amazing. Tesco sell these gloves in a pack of two which costs just £0.53 meaning each pair of gloves cost you £0.27. I buy quite a few pairs at a time and have a pair upstairs for the toilets, one downstairs for the washing up etc. These gloves are not thick enough to be effective in the garden in my opinion but I do keep a pair outside for doing a bit of cleaning when I clean the garden furniture and garden toys down etc. I would say a pair lasts about two months as they are not amazingly thick but they work well during that time and are a great bargain.
In our home we work quite well together at keeping it clean. Obviously there are times when we have an off day or one of us is run down and we just do not have the motivation. Generally we follow a list each week and spend one day off a week doing some jobs that don't get done so often. Some of these jobs (such as cleaning skirting boards or cleaning the balcony) can be quite dirty and this is when I like to wear rubber gloves in particular.
Rubber gloves allow me to keep my jewellery on and also they allow me to keep my hands soft and smooth and when I use them while washing up it stops me from getting worn wrinkly hands that can be painful if I have a large load of washing up to do.
I am not too fussy about rubber gloves as long as they fit me and they are strong enough not to tear when I am using them or if I catch one of the fingers with my nails. These rubber gloves are from the Tesco Value range and cost just 53p for two pairs. I think that these rubber gloves represent fantastic value for money.
I must say that these rubber gloves are quite good for just 26.5p a pair! They are thinner than some gloves that I have used in the past but I have no problems using them and my nails have not gone through them at any time. They come up my arm high enough that water does not get in to them easily when I am washing up and no cleaning fluid comes in to contact with my hands either.
I find that my gloves usually last for around 3 or 4 weeks depending on the tasks that I am using them for. If I am using them for washing up then I always hang them over my tap to dry and then they stay stronger for longer. I have no problems with them leaking or splitting and I have only managed to damage one pair of these since I began using them several months ago.
The price of these gloves is just fantastic for their quality. I would firmly recommend these over more expensive clothes. They are thinner and lighter but for me they do the job incredibly well anywa so i don't mind that they are cheap and from the value range!
