I try to use gloves when doing dishes and such. I have trouble with the skin near my finger nails cracking and bleeding if my hands are in the dishwater too much.

 

I buy Playtex or whatever brand strikes my fancy and have never seen then sized larger that Large. They barely fit my hands. I keep baby powder in the kitchen to heip with slipping them on and off but it only does so much.

 

Does anyone know of stores that carry a size of Playtex-style gloves that come in a size larger than Large?

I have a box of 100 surgical disposable gloves which are very big.

 

May be you can consider using those? They are not expensive.

I have a pair of Marigold gloves in size 9. I believe they go as high as size12 but their site is under construction. Mine are used in cheese-making and are rated to 365F! Great for dishes and tgey are super long. They were a gift so no idea on price.

If you're thinking about such gloves, try an auto parts store and look for nitrile gloves.  I get 'em for Toots for use as gardening gloves.
