"Disappointed" star star_border star_border star_border star_border I have been buying these gloves for around 9 years, however I am finding that after using for just shy of four weeks the fingers of the gloves become hard thus I'm unable to grip the washed item. I won't be purchasing any more.. Has anyone else found this? Mrs Evans - 15 April 2021 support_agent A note from the team Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear this and we've sent you an email. Prolonged contact to oil (including cooking oil) will cause the the elements which makes the gloves soft to migrate out leaving the fingertips brittle. The gloves should always be washed after use to prolong the lifespan.
