Strong blue nitrile gloves
20 August 2023  | 

I've been using these for years as a mechanic in the motor trade. They're strong yet wipe clean with degrease and don't melt. These gloves have good grip and save your hands from modern day oil & grease which can contain harmful chemicals. It just makes very good sense to protect yourself from whatever you're working with. We all want a good job done well.. but not at the cost of our health. I buy boxes of 1000 gloves as its the cheaper option. No professional mechanical technician would not use gloves.

Excellent gloves, been using them for a few years. Used both in the garden and for DIY tasks. This is my first order with gloves.co.uk and would definitely use again. Good price and quick despatch/delivery.
