Disposable gloves for cleaning etc

Just about to run out of GL897 black nitrile examination gloves that we wear while
cleaning and painting etc. They aren't great and do tend to split quite often but they're better than the others I've tried. Got a shock to find that they are £21.99 per box of 100 on Amazon. Can anyone recommend a better alternative? Thanks as always.

Not black but what does a colour mean?

Re: Disposable gloves for cleaning etc

Cost of gloves went up about a year ago, where I was spending about £3 a box, they've doubled, and in some cases tripled in price. Everyone wanted gloves a year ago.....

I get the powderless vinyl gloves, as I can't wear the latex ones due to my hands drying out and making my exscma flair up really badly. Everytime I need to order some though, I check a few places I order from as the prices can vary a fair bit.

Thanks for both responses. Have placed an order through Justgloves. Will have to review my caretaking clothing in light of blue being introduced to the ensemble!
