Detailer’s Preference Microfiber Interior & Exterior Cleaning Glove
This cleaning glove can be used on wet or dry surfaces. Dampen it with water to remove smudges, grease and grime, or leave it dry to allow the electrostatic charges in the fibers to act as a dust magnet.
“My husband and I fight over this mitt every time we wash our cars together!” says an Amazon reviewer. “I’m ordering another one after leaving this review. It’s well made and it’s great at cleaning hard-to-reach places. You can’t beat the price either! A normal wash sponge can’t get as good of a clean as this mitt can.”
Here are five gloves you should always have on hand.
Reusable Rubber Cleaning Gloves
This set comes with two pairs of gloves and two cleaning cloths. They can be used to clean the kitchen, bathroom, car and more. The gloves work to protect your hands from grime, bacteria, viruses, mold, solvents and chemicals.
“These are the best gloves I’ve found for washing dishes,” says an Amazon reviewer. “They slip on and off very easily (not like pulling on ordinary rubber gloves) yet fit my hands well — neither too tight nor too loose. Being thicker than ordinary gloves, they also insulate better against extremes of temperature. And the long cuffs prevent water from sneaking in.” Extend the usefulness of old, leaky rubber gloves by recycling them as rubber bands.
Hagerty Silversmiths’ Gloves
These cleaning gloves remove invisible, light tarnish from your silver and provide tarnish prevention to help you maintain your silver’s shine. These gloves are made of heavy-gauge terry cloth, and are specially treated with Hagerty Dry Silver Polish and contain R-22, the world’s longest lasting, patented tarnish preventive agent, according to the manufacturer.
“Great for the cinderalla in me,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I am slightly obsessed with shiny silver so i polish seemingly constantly. I just tried these for a quick cleaning of a few things and voila! Tarnish is gone. I am going to use them when I polish all my silver for Thanksgiving this week.” Check out these 50 unusual cleaning solutions that actually work.
Pet Your Pet Grooming Gloves
Keep hair off the floor and sofa by grooming your pet with these gloves. The enhanced five-finger design ensures you’re able to tackle hard-to-reach places like the face, legs and tail. Plus, the rubber tips provide a gentle relaxing massage.
“Amazing de-shedding gloves,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I have small hands and the medium gloves fit and work great. My kittens did not like combs or brushes for hair removal, no matter how I worked with them. They are Ragdolls and contrary to written reports they do shed a lot if you do not groom them at least twice a week. These gloves have removed more hair in two short uses from both cats than a comb could hope to loosen in two hours of work. The hair peels off nicely if you start from the palms and go to the finger tips. The more hair on the gloves the better it peels off.” Check out this brilliant pet hair remover.
Silicone Dish Washing Gloves with Scrubber
Great for washing dishes, fruits and vegetables, these gloves can also be used for cleaning the bathroom or even removing wardrobe dust. Made from 100-percent food-grade silicone, the palms and fingers are covered with thick silicone bristles that help to easily wash away oil stains or dirt.
“The scrubbers on the gloves are wonderful. They replace the need for a sponge and are easily cleaned,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I used very hot water and did not feel the heat with the gloves. And to top it off, there is a handy hood to hang the gloves! I plan on getting others for other cleaning uses.”

Long Cuff, Leather Gloves
These 100-percent genuine top-grain cowhide gloves are soft, supple and heavy-duty. They feature a reinforced padded palm that’s ideal for protecting your hands as you clean up the yard or garden.
“These are the most beautifully made, well-fitting gloves I have EVER purchased!” says an Amazon reviewer. “I couldn’t believe how comfortable they are on the hand, while providing excellent protection. Las Vegas gardening, where cactus reigns, can be a real challenge. A simple light brush while planting can leave you embedded with tiny spines (I call them “no see me” devils) that cause extreme pain. With the LilGardens gloves, problem solved! The soft, long cuffs provide protection up to the elbow and the toggle allows you to adjust them, keeping out unwanted visitors.The padded palms provide additional comfort while pruning roses or prickly vines.” These are the highest rated gardening gloves on Amazon.

“Oh my God…these things are AWESOME!” says an Amazon reviewer. “I know…it’s funny that people are leaving reviews saying these make dusting ‘fun’ but I must admit that they are right! I HATE dusting. I have so many little things that have to be moved, dusted and replaced that I dread doing it. But now I just pick up the items and rub them with my hands; these gloves make getting in the little grooves so easy. And they work great on picture frames, my electronics, etc. I’m going to buy a few more pairs so that I can keep them handy and stick a pair in the RV. I’m a happy camper!” Here are 11 things you can do to make your home less dusty.

“i love these for weeding — fingernails stay clean and intact and although I can’t pull up really big weeds with big roots, they are wonderful for quickly getting rid of most without having to use other instruments,” says an Amazon reviewer. “So glad I found these since I never knew such a thing existed. I’ve used them probably several hours now and they haven’t broken. Perhaps they will at some point but i will then buy more! According to Amazon reviewers, these are the best garden tillers you can buy.
Heavy-Duty Latex Gloves
These high-grade natural latex gloves offer excellent resistance to chemicals and tears. They feature the ideal thickness to provide secure protection for your hands while you tackle any household cleaning tasks.
