I'm a huge fan of gloves, and those candy-making gloves are quite expensive, so WooHoo, I found some food-handling safe gloves at Sams. $7 for Two packs of 500-count disposable, High-density polythylene gloves. One size fits all. NO! one size fits a 1200 pound gorilla!! They are huge, and they tear very easy. Woo-Huh-uh!
Just thought I'd pass this along!!
Are these the snug fitting kind or are they the Subway kind? (I won't buy the Subway kind. Those are only good for taking out the trash when you don't want your hand to get all yucky!)
I'm guessing they are the subway kind. I hate to waste them, so I am using them to put those little firestarter brick thingies into the fireplace. Now I have a new use, trash!
Thanks for the heads-up, Shiney!
I have these. I use them for different things. They aren't good for detailed cake work, but they are fine to torte and fill. Bigger jobs, trash is a good one too.
Yah, I'm stuck w/one of those boxes too I tried to wear them to wash dishes and they are short and the water goes night down into them So much for trying to protect my hands!
DH uses them when he emptys the poop tank on our RV
Yeah, I also have a box of something similar. I use them for when I'm de-pooping the backyard!
I haven't had good experiences with gloves. Is there a good brand to try? I think I might like them better if they were a better fit. I have quite small hands.
I like the wilton decorating gloves.
I love all the poop-purposes for my new gloves. Thanks for the tips!!
Why Shiney, do you have a lot of poop around??
With two dogs, one cat, and a teenage daughter who is WAY too good to scoop poop...yeah, it falls to moi! (but then, what doesn't in my house??)
I buy the box of purple ones at Wal Mart (I think indydebi suggested them if I'm not mistaken). They fit snug and are easy to work with. I don't think they were very expensive.
Tiggy, are they wilton? And I know I've asked before,...is that a bichon? I have one (who is a contributor to aforementioned)
No, they aren't wilton, they are called safe skin and come 40 to a box. I got them in the pharmacy area. He's not a bischon but a malteese. We also have a bischon/malteese mix.
I've seen those in the medical section, but wasn't sure if they were food-safe.
Ahhh, he's sweet. I'll have to send you a pic of our bichon's pups, they were soooo cute!
walmart also sells smaller packages in the aisle with dish soap. they are latex free - powder free and come in pks of 12 for 1.17 - not bad.
how much are the boxes of 40 at walmart from the pharmacy?
Do the purple ones at Walmart come in sizes? My hands are very small. If I buy the Wilton gloves or just the normal gloves they are much too long on my fingers!
They are also latex and powder free but I don't remember the price.
The box says universal size but they aren't very big. My hands aren't tiny but they are small and they fit fine.
Thanks Tiggy2, I have to look for them this weekend.
They will take those back if they don't fit. If you don't want to take them back put some lotion on your hands and then put these on and go to sleep. Your hands will be smooth.
if you like the wilton ones, you better stock up, they have discontinued them.
