If you need to use toxic substances you might be tempted to use disposable gloves. Although this is surely an option, these gloves tear up very easily, do not allow our skin to breathe, and are not good if you want to perform a job where you need to protect your hands from potentially dangerous substances AND scratches.
These are the best gloves for the job.
SHOWA 730 Nitrile Cotton Flock-lined Chemical Resistant Glove, X-Large (Pack of 12 Pairs)
These nitrile gloves are very comfortable and give you a high level of protection. They are a great alternative for those who are allergic to latex. They are long enough, have a good grip, are fairly cheap, and are just perfect for the job. They are resistant to chemical substances, and you don’t sweat as much since they are cotton flock lined (and nothing annoys us more than sweaty hands!)
These are the gloves I would choose for heavy-duty jobs.
For work in the garden and perform other minor chores, my choice would go to
Pine Tree Tools Bamboo Gardening Gloves for Women and Men – M
These gloves give you a good level of protection from cut and scratches. Hand perspiration is one of their major advantages, which allows you to work for a long time under the scorching sun. They are very popular among gardeners all over the world.
Please be aware that they are not waterproof and I would not recommend them for handling pesticides
