Why household rubber gloves goes sticky?

Post by Zonexoo »

Why household rubber gloves goes sticky when used clean up, dish washing etc?
Is there any life hacks to prevent that?
I bought some Viledas about 2 months a go and they are now sticky
Some other brands last much more longer.

It all depends on how much they are exposed to grease. Grease and rubber are no friends. Chlorinated gloves tend to last slightly longer when in contact with grease than rubbery non-chlorinated gloves.
Best thing to do is to use a drop of washing liquid after doing the dishes and wash your gloves as you would wash your hands.

Yep, that's what I do too.
