How to Choose the Best Cleaning Gloves in the UK – Buying Guide

At the end of the day, cleaning gloves are fairly simple. So, thankfully, there are very few considerations you'll need to make when purchasing a pair. Make sure to have a quick read of our buying guide, where you can find all the info you need to know. 

Find the Right Material for Your Needs

Find the Right Material for Your Needs

The biggest consideration you'll need to make when buying cleaning gloves is the material. Rubber gloves are by far the most popular option as they are thick, durable and partially protect against heat, which means you can have the water that little bit warmer when washing up. 


They're also better suited to heavy-duty tasks, such as work in the garden, as they're not as susceptible to puncturing. Latex is another solid option if you’re after a pair to do the dishes as they’re flexible and more than capable of protecting your hands from soap and grime. 


Unfortunately, many people are allergic to latex. So you may want to try a pair of hypoallergenic silicone gloves instead. Finally, PVC or vinyl gloves are a good choice to resist not just water, but oils and other, slightly more sludgy waste. However, they do tend to be a little bit more expensive than either rubber or Latex.

If You Want Over 30m in Length: Longer Gloves Will Offer You More Protection

If You Want Over 30m in Length: Longer Gloves Will Offer You More Protection

When it comes to choosing the right size, most gloves are sold as small, medium or large. So it's simply a case of finding the closest fit. That said, you might want to pay closer attention to the length of the gloves.


Gloves tend to range in length from around 20 to over 30 cm. Longer gloves will stop your arms from getting wet, and some even have a rolling cuff, which is handy for preventing water running down your arms when you lift your hand. 


Of course, the best length will depend on the length of your arms, but we would suggest choosing something that reaches at least the middle of the forearm

Anti-Slip Features Will Make Your Work Much Easier

Anti-Slip Features Will Make Your Work Much Easier

A key feature to look for is whether your gloves have non-slip pads. These will come in the form of patches, patterns or ridges on the palm and fingers, and make it easier to handle wet dishes, cleaning tools and utensils


Thankfully, these are present on most cleaning gloves. Thus, you won’t have to go too far out of your way to find them. They don’t tend to affect the cost either, meaning you won’t have to pay extra for the privilege. The only problem is that they will wear down over time, meaning the gloves will need repurchasing at some point in the future. 

Look For a Larger Pack if You Want Spares

Look For a Larger Pack if You Want Spares

Last, but not least, if you like to make sure you get your money’s worth, it might be worth buying a multipack. You'll often get two or four per pack, but as far as we’re concerned, more is always merrier! 


This way, you can either allocate different gloves to different tasks, or store the spares until your main ones wear away. Nevertheless, you’ll probably save a little money purchasing them in multiples instead of individually. Having said that, if you find a pair of gloves that appeal to you, then prioritise the quality over the quantity.

You should now know practically everything that you'll need to know about cleaning gloves in order to pick the perfect pair. From tried and tested Marigolds, to more heavy-duty rubber gloves, it's time to countdown our top 9 favourites!
